It’s the holiday season and that means, beyond the big hardcover and softcover collections of great comic book series you find on store shelves this time of year, you’re also likely to see holiday special comic books!
I’m not sure how she got this popular, but Harley Quinn, the fun and fetishly sexy side of Batman’s arch nemesis, the crazed Joker, has got her own Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1.
Follow me after the jump and I’ll tell you exactly what that means!
Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1
Written by: Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner
Illustrated by: John TImms, Darwyn Cooke and more
Published by: DC Comics
To be honest, I don’t truly know what that means.
For a character that made her premiere over twenty years ago within Batman: The Animated Series, Harley Quinn has done quite well for herself. Not only has she cemented herself within the Batman comic book universe, but she’s now also a regular star in the Suicide Squad monthly series as well as her own title!
Eagle eye television viewers saw her, albeit briefly, in the Arrow television series and she’ll also star in the in-development Suicide Squad live action film. Does anyone out there remember her from the ill-fated Birds of Prey series, portrayed by Mia Sara, in 2002?
If only Ambush Bug had this much success after his own stocking stuffer comic book all those years ago!
Anyway, there’s obviously demand for Harley Quinn and with the Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1, we’ll get a comic book with multiple stories including one that includes a war between department store Santas!
The double-sized book is sure to be full of laughs. If not for yourself, the Harley Quinn Holiday Special #1 would make a great stocking stuffer for the Harley, or Batman, of comic book fan in your life. Make the run to tour local comic book shop and pick it up today!
