King's Latest Heroes in Crisis Teaser Pits Harley Quinn Against Joker

DC writer Tom King has shared another sneak peek from an upcoming issue of the limited series Heroes in Crisis, which features a huge moment of catharsis for a certain former psychiatrist.

King shared two panels illustrated by the writer's Mister Miracle and Sheriff of Babylon collaborator, Mitch Gerads. The panels in question feature Harley Quinn coming face-to-face with her former partner, the Joker. Not exactly known for her subtly, Harley proceeds to punch the Clown Prince of Crime directly in the face, drawing blood in the process.

Given the series' central theme of past trauma among the inhabitants of the DC Universe, some sort of clash between Harley and the person responsible for so much of her own trauma was just about inevitable. And this time around, it looks as though she's taking no prisoners.

This preview presumably comes from Heroes in Crisis #6 (the next issue of the series), with solicitation information listing the aforementioned Gerads as the artist. Also, the issue's main cover prominently features Harley Quinn.
