Heads Up - Two new DC Villains11179

Collector GanaSoth private msg quote post Address this user
Guys. Heads up here, if you aren't aware.
DC just released two new villains.

One can be found for sale at The Comic Mint.
Discount code ACADEMY still works.
It features Jokers new main squeeze; her name, Punchline.



The other new Villain is found within the pages of The Flash #88 - his name, Paradox.
You will have to find this copy at your LCS or FeeBay.



Good luck, happy hunting.

@kaptainmyke people are saying that Punchline is the new Batman? I don't have Facebook.

Here's the DC comics official site on her.
Click or Touch here to read about Punchline.

@GanaSoth & @kaptainmyke

Is it the same Punchline as the 2018 version put out but Antarctic Press.. If yes wouldn't this be the 1st Appearance...

@Gotlift nope. It's a different character. Different associations/affiliations.
But that's cool that you found another character of the same name!

She’s supposed to have a cameo in Batman 89 and full app in Hell Arisen. But if you haven’t arranged for a copy already, you might be out of luck.

@GanaSoth

I wonder if DC didn't buy the rights to the name.. I would think it would be a copyright infringement using the same name..

I think the "punchline" is that this is a flash in the pan character that will go nowhere in the long run.


90's was new #1 every other week and just stupid covers...glow in the dark, scratch and sniff, foil, embossed etc.etc.

Currently it looks like variants and new characters every few months is the flava flav!! Almost ever issue has a variant so long term those are losers...best to wait it out 5 or 10 years and pick up the few that are worth anything rather than buy every one....same goes for new characters; wait 10-15 years and see which ones stick.

ie. Bane!! can get 9.4's on 'buy it now'for under $100 and raw for even less!!

sorry to be a 'debbie downer'!!!

Another over hyped first appearance. If you have an issue coming in, sell right away.

This concept would make a great pinned thread....a New First appearances type thing...So when someone spots a new character or hears about one, everyone can know. I think Gana is onto something here ...aside from the two villians themselves

@gotham44 I don't know why it's not letting you add one. I just checked again & it shows a QTY#10 are in stock, unless it's some kind of glitch?



PS: I removed them from my cart after taking this screenshot.

@Gotlift I guess it's a kind of mime makeup job. I personally think she looks cooler than Harley, cause to me, Harleys been played out to the max.

Yeah. They upped the price a buck and added more copies to sell. Shows 6 for sale now. Went from 17.95 to 18.95

I'll probably pick up a couple copies at my LCS. Usually not a problem getting an extra or two.

If I had to bet, though, this character will have all the staying power of Joker's Daughter.

Since the entire thread is about Punchline, is anyone going to buck the trend and bet on Paradox?

Is Paradox that new p.o.s. Villain for Flash? No. Bad enough to have had Godspeed...

I am not a flipper. So, can someone walk me through the process of a seller doing a pre-sale on a hot book and guaranteeing a 9.8 slab? If a book like Batman 89 is sold out how does a seller get enough copies to guarantee 9.8 to all the people that purchased them? Also, what's the price point someone has to sell a modern book at to turn a profit and get the books back to people by the late part of March which some sellers are offering.

Just curious and would like to learn more about sellers that do pre-sales of 9.8's.

@Towmater they probably put up only five copies as a pre-sale 9.8s. They more than likely preorder from Diamond in advance about fifteen copies that they are going to send in to get graded; Fast Pass. They pay for the prescreening and tell the graders to only follow through with the slabbing if they can get a grade of 9.8
