The Joker is dead, Bruce Wayne is behind bars…and Gotham City is just starting to redefine itself without Batman. As Harley Quinn struggles to adjust to her new life as the mother of Jack Napier’s twins, an elusive mastermind called the Producer seizes the moment to assemble a crew of villains-starting with the Starlet, a serial killer who murders Gotham’s golden age film stars in homage to their silver screen roles. When a recent, gruesome crime scene suggests a connection to The Joker, the GTO, and FBI agent Hector Quimby turn to Harley as the one person with information that could crack the case. With some help from Bruce, Harley agrees to investigate-but to protect her children and her city from a fatal final act, Harley must flirt with madness and confront her own past.Continue reading
With 2020 being what it is, I was surprised we’d have an official Batman Day – but here it is! September 19th, 2020. But, unlike normal years, I don’t really have events or excessive travel. Honestly, aside from a shop Batman Day sale – it’s all going to be at home celebrating.
So, what DO you do for Batman Day during a pandemic?Continue reading
Three Jokers is finally upon us! To celebrate, let’s talk about some of my top Joker recommendations.
It’s no secret that the Joker is one of the most wildly popular villains of all time – not just in Batman, or even DC – but in comic history, and even mainstream society. He’s a frequent reoccurring main villain in Batman films, games, shows, etc. He can be portrayed cartoonish and campy, or as an anarchist, or in some cases, so close to the real, it feels eerie to think how some people are just one bad day away from madness. There’s a demand for everyone’s favorite Jester of Genocide, and entertainment is willing to provide at any opportunity.
But less talked about in mainstream society is the comic book versions, so I’d like to share some favorites and classics, as well as some underrated or overlooked reads.
“In Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity by Kami Garcia, Mico Suayan and Jason Badower, Harley Quinn is hunting two serial killers: The Joker, a brutal psychopath who murdered her roommate and disappeared years ago, and the killer currently terrorizing Gotham City. Throughout the acclaimed series, Garcia has been consulting forensic psychiatrist and behavior analyst Edward Kurz, MD, to ensure the accuracy of the story and of Harley’s methodology.
In the one-shot Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity Secret Files #1, see pieces of the puzzle on Harley’s investigation board and steal a glimpse into John Kelly’s high school notebook—a book he still carries today.”

I decided to ask my followers on Instagram (@angelyoung13 for anyone interested) to suggest some favorites they’d like to know. So, here were some of my top favorites I was asked for:
I’m a little behind, but there was A LOT to get pics of, for this haul. So, bear with me on this nerdy journey.
I’m a sucker for Batman everything. Two Batman stockings and a Batcave gingerbread kit from Walmart.
I decided to start posting a monthly haul of what is added to my Batman collection, starting with September. Some months, there could be little to nothing. Other months, we could be at this a while haha. This was a decent month.
