Before DC and readers explore the near-future of Gotham City and the Batman cast in January and February 2021's DC Future State event, there's still some post-'The Joker War' immediate-future moments to be revealed.

DC has released a preview of images from next month's Batman #103, on sale Tuesday, November 17, 2020.

Written by James Tynion IV with art by Carlo Pagulaya, Guillem March, and Danny Miki, with covers by Jorge Jimenez and Francesco Mattina, the issue features face-offs between Batman and new rival/anti-hero Ghost-Maker (who has ties to Bruce Wayne's teenage years) and Harley Quinn and Clownhunter, the latter of whom would naturally try to take over Harley given her past ties to the Joker, unaware or unimpressed by her newer, heroic lease on life. 

"If you thought that the end of 'The Joker War' meant that Batman would be able to take it easy, guess again!" reads DC's official description.  

"Batman and Ghost-Maker go toe-to-toe to decide which of them will remain Gotham City's hero. The city is changing faster than ever in the aftermath of 'The Joker War,' and with this change comes increasing dangers as Gotham's citizens demand that Punchline be released from prison! Plus, Harley Quinn faces certain death at the hands of Clownhunter!"

"Certain death" is likely an exaggeration, but check out the new preview pages nonetheless.

I'm not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I'm also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I've been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it's crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
