Since her reveal, Punchline’s moniker as the anti-Harley Quinn has all but promised a throwdown between the two laughing ladies. In this preview for Batman #93, that’s finally fulfilled. Punchline and Harley Quinn trade blows, while Batman and the designer cross swords in four unlettered preview pages feature art from Guillem March and Javi Fernandez, and colorists Tomeu Morey and David Baron, who continue their work on the series with writer James Tynion IV.
This preview follows DC’s recently announced Instagram prelude to Batman #92, which hits shelves on June 10. There, readers got a bit of a taste of what’s to come here, as Punchline remarks on how much she detests being reminded of Harley Quinn, who she recently replaced as Joker’s number two.
