Preview DC Collectibles Batman: Hush graphic novel Batman & Catwoman The Kiss Statue

The original and most widely known Catwoman, Selina Kyle, first appeared in Batman #1 (Spring 1940) in which she is known as The Cat. She is usually depicted as an adversary of Batman, known for having a complex love-hate relationship with him. During the Batman: Hush storyline, Batman and Catwoman briefly work together and have a romantic relationship.

Inspired by the art of Jim Lee and the popular Batman miniseries, "Hush," this gorgeous statue proves that nighttime is good for far more than fighting crime. Guaranteed to sweep you off your feet without the use of a bat-grapple, look out for this statue in your favorite comic book shop or specialty store.

The Dark Knight and the Feline Fatale steal a kiss in this intricately sculpted statue ripped from the pages of the best-selling BATMAN: HUSH graphic novel, illustrated by superstar artist Jim Lee. Limited Edition of 2500. Measures Approximately 11 inches Tall.

I don't know about you but opening your eyes while kissing isn't very romantic, is it? Shame on you Batman, unless you were sneaking a peek. Sneaking a peek is okay but with eyes wide open? haha

On wikiHow: Close your eyes just before your lips touch. Some people enjoy looking into their partner's eyes when kissing, but for most, it's a huge creepy turn off. Keep them closed and you will enjoy it more. Think about how blind people sense so much more than sighted people, the same principle applies. You will get a more rushing sensation from the touch and feel of a kiss if your eyes are relaxed and closed.

Use your hands! Don't let your arms awkwardly hang there. Guys, your hands should be around her back, waist, or on the sides of her face. Girls, your hands can be in a NUMBER of places, including: around his neck, on the sides of HIS face, on his stomach, on his hips, or a guy's favorite, on his biceps. Also don't be afraid to run your fingers through your partner's hair, just make sure your hair is clean just in case it happens to YOU!

Certainly nice to see Batman getting some love ;p these two always seem to have a chemistry going.

Even in the films, Batman and Catwoman seem to have a thing for each other. In the 1992 Tim Burton directed "Batman Returns", Selina Kyle (Michelle Pfeiffer) falls in love with Bruce Wayne (Michael Keaton) but the story has a tragic ending

Then again in the 2012 Christopher Nolan directed movie "The Dark Knight Rises", Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) hooks up with Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and by the end of the film, they seem to live happily ever after.

Enjoy the kiss Batman, you deserve it :)
