DC is telling readers to “GET READY FOR PUNCHLINE”

.

On Friday night DC sent out a press release to retailers notifying them of a new character joining the Batman Universe. This is odd for a few reasons, DC doesn’t usually send out press releases about new characters and all of the books featuring this new character are well past retailer final order cut off. As a result of this, in presale, the first appearance of this new character has started to heat up on the secondary market. The full press release can be read below,

“A brand-new Bat-villain makes her first full-fledged appearance in Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3—and we’ve planned a significant overprint to meet demand. Details below!

GET READY FOR PUNCHLINE

COMING YOUR WAY IN BATMAN #89 AND YEAR OF THE VILLAIN: HELL ARISEN #3
A brand-new DC villain set to play a major role in Batman’s life is already generating buzz and press interest…but who is Punchline?

The mysterious new villain pops up on February 19 in a one-panel cameo in Batman #89 ( DEC190444DEC190445).

One week later, Punchline makes her full-on debut as The Joker’s latest—and deadliest—henchwoman in Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen#3.

To meet anticipated demand for Punchline’s first full-fledged appearance, Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3 will have a significant overprint. This issue is available for advance reorder under item codes DEC190434DEC190435.
