Now that Harley Quinn is out of the picture, it looks like the clown prince of crime has officially moved on. So are you ready to meet The Joker’s new girlfriend?
So ICYDK, The Joker and Harley Quinn have broken up numerous times over the years. In comics, and both live-action and animated films. Including the recently released movie starring Harley Quinn, ‘Birds of Prey’. But it looks like the clowning duo has finally called it quits. And Mr. J is officially moving on with a new henchwoman and girlfriend in the picture.
But we just have to say that Harley is better off without him. And besides, The Joker never truly loved her. So as crazy as she is, she still deserves better. Now, we just hope his new girlfriend knows what she’s getting herself into.
So who is The Joker’s new girlfriend?
Say hello to Punchline! She’ll be making her debut appearance in Batman #89. And according to Screen Rant, DC described her as, “A brand-new DC villain set to play a major role in Batman’s life.”
Here is my upcoming variant cover for Batman #94 featuring the new character Punchline. Changed up the art style a little to keep things fresh. What do you think? 🙂 #punchline pic.twitter.com/RBzLOo2e2K

She’ll be given a one-panel preview in the upcoming issue and will be first illustrated into the DC universe by artists Guillem March and Tomeu Morey.
After her appearance on Batman #89, she’ll appear next in Year of the Villain: Hell Arisen #3 as “the Joker’s latest—and deadliest—henchwoman.” And by May 2020, The Joker’s new girlfriend will take center stage with a variant cover, all to herself on Batman #94.
So watch out when Batman #89 hits shelves in comic book stores near you on February 19th. And we’ll keep you posted on any updates about The Joker’s new right-hand woman. Just who is Punchline? And did she also dive into a barrel of acid for The Joker?
