The comic will take place after Batman #50’s wedding storyline, and will follow Selina back on the prowl trying to catch a copycat who’s pulling heists around Gotham City. She’ll also battle a new, yet-to-be-announced villain while attracting unwanted attention from Gotham’s police force.

Jones has worked on a variety of comics, including Dark Horse’s Lady Killer and DC’s Superman: American Alien. Meanwhile, Allred also worked on Lady Killer, as well as Silver Surfer and Bug!: The Adventures of Forager.
