Writer Gail Simone on what she promises will be a "memorable moment" in the four issue run..
"Her payback is long, long overdue. It was immensely cathartic. It's a brutal story: The Joker is the guy who haunts your nightmares, and he nearly destroyed Barbara once already.
The Joker is really the Elvis of comic-book villains. There's no one with his primal star power, there's no one else anywhere who has sent more chills up the spines of readers, because there genuinely is something terrifying about him."
