    What a great premise. The Joker is offended he didn't get an invitation to the Bat and the Cat's wedding and sicks Batman's rogues out to ruin it. The Bat-Family steps in to stop each of the villains. I had a lot of fun with this. All of the one-shots are by capable artists. A recommended read prior to the wedding.Received a review copy from DC and NetGalley. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.While Batman and Catwoman might be just days from walking down the aisle and from going on one of the most special journeys they could ever live to enjoy, the Gotham underworld are far from ready to let this kind of happiness exist within their territory. After all, who would have actually thought that a wedding between these two could ever happen in peace? With a whole array of villains ready to...

    This was just okay. Just 5 different stories all concluding to Batman's big wedding. While the Nightwing one and Damien one were pretty solid the other 3 just kind of fell flat. None of them really added much and could be skipped but nothing terrible. A 2.5 out of 5.

    I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.3 stars. Given the obvious reasons for publishing this volume (making as much money off of the upcoming Bat-Cat wedding), I'm not sure that it met the mark. Out of the lot, I enjoyed the Batgirl/Riddler chapter the best, and really disliked the Robin/al Ghul chapter. Seriously, what happened?Overall, the artwork was very good, with the Harley/Joker chapter coming in with the best art...

    This was an ok collection of VS one-shots. As I was reading it, however, the fact that this book is just a pointless "Batman Wedding" cash grab was never far from my mind.
  • Todd Glaeser
    Thank you to Netgalley for the free e-copy. As you would expect, a mixed bag. The Joker stories were the highlights for me, particularly as he waits for his invitation.
  • Roy
    Solid without being as good as Kings arc. Good prelude into the wedding. Also provided some build up to what may happen at the actual wedding. Always love seeing the joker.
  • Wing Kee
    A mixed collection.World: The art is solid, each issue has a different artist and some are better than others but overall the tone and the color matches and it’s consistent. The world building here is solid, it’s a bunch of tie-ins to the event and offer different parts of the overall world to give a larger picture of the Bat/Cat wedding. Solid.Story: Five issues here and all different in quality. The best one is of course the Damien issue ca...

    Basic Plot: As Bat and Cat get ready to marry, the Joker is very upset he has not been invited.There were a lot of fun moments in this little lead up series to the wedding. I definitely got some smiles out of it. The art was solid. Each character addressed got a bit of time to connect to the wedding somehow, and did it in a way that made sense. I think this idea of the Joker being offended at not getting an invitation is a great one. It connects ...

    [Read as single issues]Not sure if you’ve heard, but Batman and Catwoman are getting married. Unfortunately, Gotham’s worst criminals are well aware of this joyous day, and they’re going to do their best to ruin it for everyone. Of course, Batman’s got friends, and they’re not about to let that happen. When Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Harley Quinn face off against Ra’s Al Ghul, Riddler, Hush, Anarky, and the Joker, all be...
  • Jen
    I love Batman and Catwoman. Two of my fav graphic novel characters out there and I SHIP them. So when this and the "Wedding Album" came out, I was ALL over requesting them. Since this one has the word "Preludes" in the title, I read this one first. I also assumed it would tie in with the "Wedding Album", but not so much, more's the pity, because this one was really quite great and I think the other one would have done better if it had followed th...
    The irony of this comic was the best thing of it all, plus the Joker and Harley Quinn.La cosa migliore di questo numero é l'ironia che lo pervade, piú Joker ed Harley Quinn.THANKS EDELWEISS FOR THE PREVIEW!

    Jasonowy zeszyt najbardziej mi podszedł do gustu i może dlatego tak wysoko oceniam, ale śliczna kreska w zeszycie Harley i to, jak ona podchodzi do Jokera teraz, mając go i jego manipulacje w dupie, również zasługuje na wysoką ocenę.

    Note: I received a copy of Batman: Preludes to the Wedding from DC Comics via Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. This review also contains some small spoilers.What’s it about, Becca?It’s the wedding that we’ve all been waiting for! Batcat is busy preparing their vows & attempting to enjoy their bachelor(ette) parties! In a few days, they’ll be exchanging their ‘I do’s’.. or will they? Not if the villains of Gotham City hav...

    Weddings can bring people out of the woodwork, and that is certainly the case with the upcoming nuptials of Batman and Catwoman, Everyone wants to attend, from members of the bat family: Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, and Red Hood; to some non invited guests: Ra's al Ghul, Hush, Riddler, and of course it would not be a party without the Joker and Harley Quinn. This collection of six issues creates a shadow that will hover over the couple as they move...
  • Alan
    You know, I probably enjoyed these more than I should have. I mean, I know they're a marketing ploy. Tim Seeley, for the most part, raises this collection of one shots above the mere marketing and $$$ grab. I haven't been reading the mainstream Batman titles for some time, but Seeley makes good use of minor characters (ex: Anarky). The underlying plot thru these titles, well really in the background, is Joker's complaint that he didn't receive an...

    Batman: Preludes to the Wedding includes six stories providing background to the events that occur in Batman and Catwoman: The Wedding Album.The first and last story describe how the Joker receives his wedding invitation. The last also includes Harley Quinn. From This Day Forward includes a scene of Damien Wayne getting his wedding suit tailored where he describes his history to his soon-to-be stepmom, Catwoman. Later after returning from her bac...

    Batman and Catwoman are getting married and the Joker is genuinely perplexed as to why he was not invited to the wedding. He truly thought that he and Batman had a closer relationship that warranted an invitation to such an auspicious event. In his way, he goes to Ra's al Ghul, Batman son's maternal grandfather, and Thomas Elliot, Bruce Wayne’s childhood best friend to find some answers. He asks, after a fashion, the Riddler to solve this conun...

  • Tom McDonald
    Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.The relationship between Batman and Catwoman is of the stuff that makes comic book romance, conceived at the very inception of Batman’s mythos and nearly 80 years old in counting. Everyone is excited about the impending nuptials, and such a core event reverberates to each member of the Bat-Family. Tim Seeley and Tom King are giving us a story told from the ...

    I've deleted the reviews to the single editions in favour of listing the volume as one book, so I'm gonna paste them here again.Robin vs. Ra's al Ghul (read 9th June, rated: 2/5): ... What? What even happened here?Nightwing vs. Hush (read 9th June, rated: 3/5): This had the potential to be fleshed out bigger, I'm sad they used it for these shorts :(Batgirl vs. The Riddler (read 14th June, rated 4/5): Oh, I enjoyed this!Red Hood vs. Anarky (read 2...
  • Wayne McCoy
    'Batman: Preludes to the Wedding' by DC Comics collects a lot of one shots leading up to the big event.The prelude story, written by Tom King, is about an anxious Joker waiting for his wedding invite, and it sets a tone that isn't quite met for the rest of the book. The remainder of the book is a series of vs. confrontations between the Bat-Family and some of the various Batman villains. Tim Seeley does the writing with various artists doing good...
  • Kristine
    Batman: Preludes to the Wedding by Tim Seeley is a free NetGalley e-comicbook that I read in early September.This comic initially comes off as creepy, lurking, shadowy, and exquisitely inked, but a whole lot of time switching and interlaced storylines wears at the overall charm and look of the greater story quite a bit: the Joker and the Riddler are keen on including themselves in the forthcoming wedding; a smarmy and somewhat hyperviolent Damian...

    Rating: 3.5 StarsOn Sale: September 5thThis graphic novel is a collection of one-shots all with the common theme of Batman and Catwomanś wedding. There were times when I was genuinely confused by the story (Robin vs Raś al Ghul), but that could be my own fault for not keeping up with the storylines. But hello, who could pass up on the drama building up to a wedding?! On the other hand, there were other storylines I loved (Batgirl vs Riddler and...
  • Megan Farve
    I received a copy of this graphic novel in advance from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. I enjoyed this prelude to the Batman/Catwoman wedding. It was interesting to see how the criminal world responded to Batman's upcoming nuptials, from increased destructive chaos to self-evaluation in the face of a hero and reformed villian finding love in one another. This novel gave us a chance to review some of Batman's most important rel...
  • Craig
    While this volume is filled with largely nonessential stories revolving around the forthcoming wedding of Batman and Catwoman, there are some good things in here. Particularly strong was the story involving Damian Wayne and his grandfather, Ra's al Ghul, during which Damian and Selina come to an understanding about how to deal with each other going forward. The art in these issues is all quite strong and in some cases outstanding. It's just kind ...
  • Nathaniel Darkish
    I really enjoyed this. Joker knows about the wedding, and he's furious that he hasn't been invited, so he cuts his way through Gotham's underbelly looking for it, all the while leaving wedding presents by letting other villains know about the upcoming nuptials. It's a great Joker story, and also really hits the spot with stories featuring much of the Bat-family as well. It's one of the best Batman collections in Rebirth and has, for what feels li...
  • gypsydreams
    As someone who has long loved the dc world and Gotham in particular I found this to be an excellent collection featuring some lesser known villains but set in the backdrop of the wedding of Batman and Catwoman.I completely enjoyed the section regarding Harley Quinn (my all time favorite character )the storyline felt very true to her and the dysfunctional psychology one would generally expect and I thoroughly enjoyed the battle of wits between Bat...
  • Iris Nevers
    [Read in single issues]I hope this cover is the final cover because this is ONE OF THE BEST VARIANTS for anything with the Bat/Cat wedding. The issues were great and really emphasized the love in the Bat-Family. A few of them didn't quite feel like a part of a "prelude" to the wedding. I'm mainly looking at the Batgirl/Riddler issue, but I loved the outcome of that issue so much, I actually couldn't be mad. I loved how different all the issues fe...

    As Bats and Catwoman prepare for the big day, it seems someone's a bit miffed not to get an invite, and it's up to Red Hood, Batgirl, and Nightwing to clear up the mess that the Joker's leaving all over Gotham.Equal parts funny and freaky (the bachelor party set-up is brilliant) this is a great accompaniment to the main story-line, and although not essential reading, long-time fans will enjoy the cameos.
