Have you ever seen Batman kissing Catwoman? The relationship between the two has a long history in comics. Batman and Catwoman had a daughter together, the Huntress. They were even married. So seeing Batman and Catwoman kissing should be no surprise. However, there is one story in particular that is worth mentioning where this happens.
The story is Batman: Hush. Batman and Catwoman flirting isn’t nothing new. However, in this story Catwoman takes it to a whole new level. Catwoman (Selena) offers Batman a passionate kiss as a thank you. After Batman and Catwoman kiss, Batman (Bruce) cannot stop thinking about it. He becomes obsessed. Are Batman and Catwoman in love? Probably. But Selena makes it clear that she is in charge, as she always does.
One of the interesting aspects of this story is that Bruce trusts Selena so much that he decides to reveal his secret identity to her. This is due to his butler Alfred confronting him on his trust issues. How will he evolve emotionally if he cannot allow a person into both his personal and private life?
Batman: Hush is a great graphic novel. First off, this comic is drawn by the outstanding comic illustrator Jim Lee. If you don’t know who he is, just know that his art is always crisp and entertaining. In addition, a lot happens in the novel. Like Batman fighting Superman. Yes, really. There is also an interesting twist involving his former sidekick.
If you are a comic fan and don’t want to read Batman: Hush, then something is wrong with you. It has so much going for it that it’s not even worth explaining. So start reading that and stop reading this. Just one word of warning though. The graphic novel version seems to have made a faux-pas by putting a critical image down the center of the page, a no-no publication and design. Unfortunately this happens to be one of the kissing scenes between Batman and Catwoman. Read it anyway!
