DC Preview: Mecha-Batman Fights Mecha-Joker in Detective Comics #44
The DC Comics Batman suit recently got an upgrade, as it became a huge robot remotely piloted by Jim Gordon (who needs Batman when you have Mecha Batman?). But where there's a robot Batman, there is inevitably a robot Joker, as Gordon learns in the next issue of Detective Comics.

In this issue, Jim Gordon as Mecha Batman goes up against Joker's Daughter, who really needs her own name, but at least now has her very own robot, complete with the Joker's signature smile:

The issue was written by Brian Buccelato and illustrated by Fernando Blanco. It deals with the fallout of the Endgame arc, in which the original Joker died at the hands of Bruce Wayne, and the rise of Joker's Daughter, who is determined to seek revenge against the current Batman with- what else?- a good old-fashioned robot fight.
