DC Comics and Batman: Joker War Zone #1 Spoilers and Review follows.

Stephanie Brown and Cassandra Cain’s New Roles!

Joker Vs. Batman and Poison Queen Ivy In 2021!

Luke Fox and Clownhunter Unmasked!

There a few stories in this one-shot that begins with the current Batman series writer…

…taking shots at the previous Batman writer using…

…Joker and Bane as proxies over how the death of Alfred Pennyworth was handled.

More to come in 2021!

Then we see Lucius Fox struggling from overcoming the Joker venom at Punchline’s hands.

The billions of Bruce Wayne bucks that Catwoman stole back from the Joker should help with that and…

…his son Luke Fox aka Batwing, but perhaps a future Batman?

There is another story where…

…Cassandra Cain aka Orphan and Stephanie Brown aka Spoiler, both former Batgirls, defeat new villain the Hench Master and…

…adopt new costumes emblazoned with the Batman symbol.

Then we get a Poison Ivy story…

…where she kills Joker’s minions sent after her as she crowns herself Queen Ivy…

…and her kingdom is Gotham City in 2021!

The final story focuses on…

…Clownhunter who is unmasked, but…

…whose violent ways are embraced by the people of Gotham City’s The Narrows.

The Pulse:

An eclectic mix of stories. Decent stories, but a mixed bag on art; diverging styles. Interesting 2021 teases. 6 out of 10.
