    Aw, you beat me to it! Now this, as opposed to Murphy's White Knight, sounds like something very interesting. Sort of like Dixon's Pirate Batman concept, but for fairy tales, with this urban painted art style.

    Whoa, I've been calling her Cat since a loooong time before Tom King or any of these newer writers.

    But people have been calling her "Cat" in general conversation for a long time. This is not new.

    Never heard of it. I personally think it just sounds bad. Cat is cat, a pet, and Catwoman is criminal thief/anti-hero. But if you like 'Cat', well, good for you.

    Well that's you. It's a message board so I didn't think it was a big deal.

    Yeah, you kinda just wish some of these stories can be in the main title. Like this looks like it could be in the main title. But I guess it would depend on the story then huh?

    the art looks stunning, so might pick it p for that alone.

    How about more Earth One and less done in one Elseworlds?

    Hmmm... his art style doesn't particularly interest me and let's look at the synopsis for a second:

    "BATMAN: THE DARK PRINCE CHARMING is a two-volume graphic novel series that finds Batman once again facing off against the Joker. Only this time, the stakes are personal…"

    this plot synopsis doesn't give me enough information about the plot to keep me interested, it's all very vague, not revealing a lot about the plot in a synopsis of a project might interest me with a book written by Grant Morrison or Neil Gaiman or some big author where I would buy their book no matter what, but with an artist I don't know about, it's really hard to care if they're isn't really something in the synopsis that grabs, me.

    Also are they saying that Batman's encounters with the Joker have never been personal? Because the Joker is so saturated, writers tend to use him sparingly, so you don't ever see a story-arc where Joker simply robs a bank or something generic like that, in fact the majority of the time, Batman's scuffles with The Joker are personal.
