Last week, Bleeding Cool ran some Gotham Gossip about an upcoming new character for the Batman books who we erromneously first called Lady Bane but later found this was to be Vengeance, Daughter Of Bane. Courtesy of DC Comics and Lunar Distributors sending out Vengeance: Daughter Of Bane variant covers to comic stores, one for every fifty copies retailers had ordered of The Joker #2.
It will appear on retailers’ invoices as “Santa Prisca”. And Bleeding Cool has now had a sneak leaked peek from the issue, out on Tuesday from DC Comics. And we now get the code reference to the item as well.
Because at Santa Prisca, fictional DC Carribean island and Bane’s home, scientists are up to stuff. After all, this is where the performance enhancer drug known as Venom was perfected.
And now they have a new subject. And by the looks of things, not the person from The Joker #2 who hired Jim Gordon to kill the Joker. Though her aims will ally with them, considering the Joker killed Bane.
In last year’s Joker War Zone, the Joker made a trip to Arkham Asylum to berate the captured Bane for killing Alfred Pennyworth in front of Damian Wayne, Robin, rather than in front of Bruce Wayne, Batman. That it was a wasted death. And that he would have his revenge on Bane. One what will King Snake might have to say about all this?
The Joker #2 is published by DC Comics on Tuesday.
