James Tynion IV, Jorge Jiménez and Guillem March’s Batman run has introduced novel new characters to the Batman mythos, and one of the most anticipated moments lands today in Batman #92, as Punchline comes face to face with Harley Quinn!

With “The Joker War” approaching, fans will meet even more new characters created by Tynion IV and Jiménez. Punchline, the Designer, the Underbroker, Clownhunter and more—new characters created for “The Joker War” by James Tynion IV and Jorge Jiménez—join Batman’s most famous friends and foes on 1:25 card stock variant covers of every issue from Batman #92 through #100! Each cover features Jiménez’s design work, showing off his process of crafting Gotham’s newest residents, or his distinct interpretations of its familiar faces.
