Bartiluzzi, a second rate clown in a traveling circus, wanted nothing more than to make the world laugh and to bring pleasure to his fellow humans' otherwise dreary existence. But as time has gone by, Uzzie the Clown has become more jaded, viewing mankind as a hopeless case. Somebody needs to clean up the world and the job might as well start in the trash pile he calls New York. Somebody oughtta stop him, but will Bloodshot be the one...or will he join the clown in his sardonic laugh? "Tears of a Clown" is written by Kevin VanHook, with art by Mike Vosburg and John Dixon.
