PUBLIC ENEMY number one! Punchline crossed a dangerous line at ACE Chemicals, and crossed Batman in the process. Now every masked vigilante and officer of the law is after Punchline, but this is exactly what she wants. What’s the point of being a public enemy if you’re not going to be public enemy number one? But the scariest person in the Gotham world isn’t the Bat…it’s the Cat. Catwoman will hunt Punchline and make her pay.

    It certainly doesn't help that the most significant turning point for this series happened in the pages of Catwoman a thing that's commonplace in superhero storytelling, but still causes this book to dance around a much more compelling narrative cavity. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Aaron Ray Jr. Dec 27, 2022

    We aren't let in on the joke. Without insight into Alexis' point of view, reading this is like riding in a car with a creepy stranger or a reckless Uber. There is nothing cool about following a character lying about having everything under control. Punchline is unlikable and at this point pathetic. Three issues into a story, readers should have a stronger hook than "you're not supposed to get it. As the Joker's voice says, "What's a joke without a punchline? However, I think this issue might be the first in a new way to turn things around. I am willing to see if the Howards can take this story in a more exciting direction. Read Full Review
