As reported earlier this year, there will be 8 decade variant covers as part of the Catwoman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular #1 to celebrate each decade of her existence.
That’s right, not only is 2020 the anniversary of Batman’s greatest nemesis the Joker, it’s also the 80th anniversary of Catwoman! First appearing in Batman #1 in 1940, Catwoman has had one of the more interesting character evolutions over the decades. She started as a cat-burglar and quickly rose to fame as one of Batman’s premiere villains. She also turned into one of Batman’s greatest romantic interests, with her character toeing the line between hero and villain.
In more recent years, Catwoman has turned into a more heroic figure in Gotham. To celebrate the villain turned ally turned romantic partner, DC is releasing a 100-Page Super Spectacular issue for Ms. Kyle.
The main cover is by Joëlle Jones with the decade variant covers being handled by:
