NIGHTWING #72 Preview: Dick Grayson Meets Punchline

DC Comics has revealed an advance look at another “Joker War” tie-in issue: Nightwing #72.

Check out the whole preview below:

The march to “The Joker War” continues with this preview of Nightwing #72, a tie-in issue to the event that will have deadly impact across the entire family of Bat-Titles!


Dick Grayson has learned the truth: that “fixing” his identity lies with none other than Barbara Gordon. He must go to Gotham to find Batgirl-and runs into The Joker’s new henchperson, Punchline. Unlike Harley Quinn, Punchline’s deadpan black humor matches the deadly knives she uses on her victims…and for her next joke, Ric Grayson is the punchline.

From alternating Batman & Green Lantern as childhood Halloween costumes, to getting punched in my adolescent heart by Love & Rockets, to playing convention sidekick to the legendary Len Wein, I feel like the comics medium & characters are part of my DNA.
