Coliseum of Comics recently announced that it will sell three Coliseum-exclusive variant covers for the upcoming Batman No. 50. The comic features the wedding of Bruce Wayne (Batman) and longtime nemesis Selina Kyle (Catwoman).

“DC Comics offered comic stores the opportunity to have an exclusive cover and we wanted something as memorable as it is beautiful, so we tapped artist Alé Garza,” said President of the Coliseum chain Phil Boyle. “Mr. Garza’s work spans almost 20 years and he’s become a go-to artist for capturing those moments that make you stop and take a second look.”

Garza will be on-site at Coliseum’s Central Florida locations on July 4 for autograph signings to celebrate the launch. The schedule is as follows: Kissimmee (10 a.m. to noon), Millenia (1:30 to 3:30 p.m.) and Fashion Square Mall (4:30 to 6:30 p.m.).

The 48-page comic is written by Tom King, and features artwork by a handful of illustrators including Lee Bermejo, Frank Miller, José Luis García-López, Ty Templeton, Becky Cloonan, Andy Kubert, Neal Adams and Mitch Gerads. A new, on-going solo book for the bride, Catwoman, will also launch July 4.

Coliseum has already started taking pre-orders for the July 4 release date. Pre-orders range from $6.99 to $24.99.
