Batman's Wonderful New Toys, Harley Quinn's Plan For The Joker, Very Little Punchline in Batman #89 (Spoilers)

Did you get a copy of Batman #89 today? What about at last night's midnight opening for Wolverine #1? If so, well done. They have sold copies for $30 each on eBay today, even after we pointed out that Punchline, the Joker's new girlfriend, was only in it for a speech balloon and a mouth shot. That's it.

But there are other things afoot of note. We have a much better look at other new villain The Designer…

Batman Punchline

Will he be Domino to Punchline's Deadpool or Gideon? Only time will tell. And just as last issue, Batman #88, we got to see a new kind of holographic system that turns any Waynetech car in Gotham  (which is all of them) into a Batmobile if Batman needs it, we see a new surveillance and assault vehicle in Batman #89…

Batman Punchline

The Batspawn. Maybe they could be used in the third Batman/Spawn crossover? Batman Vs Spawn with the Batspawn?

Batman Punchline

Now, no one is going to hack those, right? Good. And as Harley Quinn determines that the Joker corpse she found is not her old puddin', she has plans to rectify that as soon as possible.

Batman Punchline

Harley Quinn is going to kill The Joker, everyone. I mean, if this is the final Batman Vs Joker storyline, why not let her have first crack with the mallet?

I was – I bought mine from Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames. Piranha Comics is a small south London comic store chain with a small south-east store in Kingston-Upon Thames's market centre, which runs Magic The Gathering nights on Fridays, and a larger south-west store in Bromley, which also runs Magic nights and has an extensive back issue collection and online store.
