    Punchline: The Gotham Game #6 concludes the miniseries with a great scene between Punchline and The Joker, as well as a final battle in Punchlines war with Black Mask. Punchline is a wonderfully complex and fascinating character who has left The Joker eating her dust as she plots, kills, and double-crosses her way to the top of the Gotham City crime scene. I look forward to seeing where she goes from here. Read Full Review

    This is a good looking, colorful issue, that focuses heavily on character expression and form. I found the artwork impressive in both styling and tone. Read Full Review

    What ensues is a chaotic scramble for the keys to Gotham and the drug supply, but very little in the way of resolutionit even tells us to look for Punchline in the pages of Catwoman's title, making this whole series feel just like a bonus arc of another book. Read Full Review

    There are some nuggets that could be compelling or thoroughly entertaining for this series, but the entire six issues just feel like an interlude for better stories on the horizon. Read Full Review

    Sadly this ended a bit rough, but there were some standout moments, like queen pledging her aligence, and her social media aspects playing a bigger role. This however needs work and needs some slow burn aspects. The seeds needed to be planted better.

    I enjoy Punchline, and this book scratched the itch, but could have been better overall.

    Kind of a rushed finale. Howard tied this series too much with Catwoman ongoing that both stories practically merged. So there is no real reason for both of them to exist, naturaly Gotham Game folded into Catwoman. Probably for the best.

    This miniseries did not need to exist. Nothing proves that more than when the book just sort of ends without any major resolution. Punchline is not a character I've been sold on, and this series didn't help. She's just not interesting, and I personally think what would've made her interesting is simply not going to ever happen at this point. She's an anti-Harley, but that's not interesting to me. The social commentary would work if any of the writers given Punchline were capable of actually showing off how radicalization through social media works. How disinformation and misinformation can unravel someone's mind and turn them into the average CBRU review bomber. It is an incredibly interesting and important topic, and yet it feels like desp more
