    Default Batman & Zatanna question

    In "The Heart of Hush" I remember a conversation between Batman & Zatanna that indicated that there was a romantic relationship between them. When did that happen? Was it pre- or post-Identity Crisis? Are there any trades? Thanks in advance!

    I don't know how much this will help you, but a couple issues of Paul Dini's Detective run dealt with Batman & Zatanna. They also hinted at a past relationship and were IMO the best issues of his run. They are Detective Comics 833 & 834.




    Heart of Hush is also written by Dini so there should be some similarities & crossover.
    Saga, Private Eye, Chew, Umbral, Deadly Class, Pretty Deadly

    She-Hulk, Ghost Rider, Loki, Moon Knight, Iron Fist, Daredevil, Punisher, X-Factor

    Thanks. Those 2 are collected in Batman: Death and the City so it won't be hard to find!

    So essentially, it didn't really happen in any old stories, Paul Dini just retconned it in.

    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    No, they were merely childhood friends.

    Didn't he do it so that Bruce had gone to Zatara when he was in pre-Batman training and met Zatanna that way?

    I seem to remember that in

    but don't know where else it may have been.

    It happened nowhere else as far as I know.

    Right, then people were like, "Hey, isn't Bruce supposed to be like 10 years older than she is?"

    Some women prefer older, slightly more mature men.

    But the retcon was that they were childhood friends, close to the same age when a lot of fans thought of Zee as being in her mid-20s and Bruce around 35.
