Clownhunter is one of the many new faces James Tynion IV, Jorge Jimenez, Guillem March and more have been adding to Gotham City during the recent Joker Wars. And now he gets his own moment under the spotlight with Batman Secret Files: Clownhunter #1. And you may not be too surprised to know he’s facing off against Punchline. The poor man’s Harley Quinn. But what with Harley now batting for the good guys, I suppose there’s room for another Joker-inspired bad girl.
“The untrained but focused vigilante stalks a boss-level clown, but his luck might be running out as he walks into an ambush set by Punchline! In a horrific parallel to his days at Gotham Academy, Clownhunter finds himself overwhelmed and outgunned…just the type of odds he likes!”
Written by Ed Brisson, with art by Rosi Kämpe, Batman Secret Files: Clownhunter #1 will be a 40 page comic book,and features a main cover by Mico Suayan for $3.99 and a $5.99 card stock variant cover by Kofi Ofosu. What, an extra two busk for a cardboard cover!? Looks like it’s not juts the criminal class of Gotham City on the rob at this prices.
Batman Secret Files: Clownhunter #1 arrives in comic book stores and on participating digital platforms on Tuesday, August 17th, 2021 from DC Comics.
