Punchline and Harley Quinn?

The book opens with a heart-wrenching drug induced hallucination or dream for Batman.

Harley Quinn is there and tells him about Gotham City has gone to hell in a handbasket due to the Joker’s machinations.

…who is waiting for Batman at the theater where a young Bruce Wayne last had fun with his parents before they were killed outside.

Batman leaves Harley Quinn, after she also gave him the lay of the land and revealed that Punchline is a bit of field general for Joker working with the Underbroker.

Batman makes it to the theater and…

…is greeted by what appears to be a theater FILLED with corpses that…

…the Joker reanimates Walking Dead and DCeased style?!
