This Week’s Must Read: Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary Special #1

Celebrate twenty-five years of Harley Quinn with this collection of stories by some legendary Harley talent and some who’ve never drawn her before! How does Harley manage her insanely jam-packed life on Coney Island? What haven’t we seen from her past with the Joker? And can even Harley’s psychological acumen crack the twisted mind of…Robin, the Boy Wonder?

Is anyone shocked this book is my must read of the week? Harley Quinn is one of my all time favorite characters and honestly, I’m flabbergasted it’s been 25 years since she first debuted. Where has the time gone?!? I don’t know, but Harls has sure made good use of it, quickly rising to very top of DC Comics’ cavalcade of characters. Here’s to another 25 years, Harley! Let’s hope they see your character continue to grow with no poorly written relapses or retcons.

Pull List: Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #14 [Review], Dark Knights: Metal #2, Detective Comics #964, Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor: Year Three #9, The Flash #30, Injustice 2 #23 (Digital Edition), Realm #1, Retcon #1 [Review], Sheena #1 [Review], Titans #15
This Week’s Must Read: Teen Titans #12 [Review]

A DARK NIGHTS: METAL tie-in! “GOTHAM RESISTANCE” part one! The fight for Gotham City’s soul starts here! When Robin receives a distress call from Nightwing urging him to return home, he discovers that Gotham City has been transformed into a mosaic of monsters, magic and doom! Trapped inside the Riddler’s deadly maze with nowhere to turn, Robin soon assembles an unlikely team of hometown heroes including Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Black Canary and Green Arrow to find the missing Nightwing and save their city!

My loathing for Damian Wayne is such that I haven’t read Teen Titans, despite liking Benjamin Percy’s writing on Green Arrow. Given that this book is a Dark Knights Metal tie-in coupled with Damian recruiting a team of characters I do like (Green Arrow, Black Canary and Harley Quinn among them) fighting one of my favorite villains, I figure there’s no better time to give this book a try.
