Hero Tomorrow Comics Put Origin of Punchline Online, For Free

Hero Tomorrow Comics publishes the Punchline comic book. It's a title that has been getting an inordinate amount of attention of late after the success of a certain DC Comics character appearing in Batman. Now they'd like more to experience their clown-themed mob henchperson character.

The character first appeared a couple of years ago in another title. Now, Hero Tomorrow Comics has made the first two issues of their Tap Dance Killer comic book available to read for free. Which features the origin of their Punchline character, with a new cover to reflect their importance. Any chance he may supersede the DC Comics version?
