Gotham City’s fate hangs in the balance in this conclusion to Harley Quinn’s quest to catch a serial killer!
Harley knew the risks when she agreed to help the GTO capture Gotham’s most savage new criminals and all her fears have come to pass. Her pursuit of Starlet and the Producer has magnified the overwhelming responsibilities of motherhood, endangered her life and loved ones and forced her to revisit the most painful memories of her own criminal past.
Now, on the eve of Starlet’s final spectacular act at the Gotham Film Festival, the case has become personal. As Harley grieves a shocking personal loss, she prepares to risk everything to prove she can deliver on her commitments and bring the case to a close. With one final assist from Bruce, Harley heads to center stage for a showdown that will make or break Gotham’s future—and determine Harley’s role within it.”

The Producer’s scheme is in motion, and the GTO is on high alert as Gotham’s hope of a peaceful new horizon begins to collapse. Rattled and recovering from a close encounter with Starlet, Harley examines whether her complicated past with villainy is a burden or a boon to her new identity. She weighs two final options: break all ties and retire to a quiet life, or embrace the chaos, risk, and responsibility of protecting the people and the place that created her. The choice itself may be fantasy, as a targeted attack on Harley ends in tragedy and drives Bruce to a reckless decision that could extend his prison sentence indefinitely.”

Clowning Around: A Joker Recommended Reading List

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.
