At the end of the last issue, Andrea Beaumont aka the Phantasm seemingly committed suicide. The final issue of this series sees a big step for Bruce and Selina. Batcat “shippers” are sure to enjoy the ending of Batman/Catwoman #12. Overall, the story was somewhat difficult to follow though, due to the changing timelines and no real connection between the stories of the different timelines.
Once again, the artwork by Clay Mann was very good in Batman/Catwoman #12. Fans of the 60’s Batman show will especially enjoy the humorous tribute to Adam West. The final panel is beautiful, showing a parallel between Bruce and Selina in costume and out of costume.
Batman/Catwoman #12 was great at highlighting Bruce and Selina’s relationship, but wasn’t the best in terms of story. The previous issue’s plot twist with Andrea Beaumont is addressed briefly here and given closure, but seems to be done in a very haphazard way. Andrea seemed to serve as more of a foil for Selina, than actually having real significance in the story, which fans of the Batman Mask of the Phantasm animated movie may find disappointing. Overall, the art was much better in this series than the writing.
