Batman Day: Harley Quinn Takeover

batmanday1

This weekend was Batman Day – an annual celebration of Dark Knight, himself. With events held at various comic shops, Barnes and Nobles, and Books-A-Million locations, with goodies supplied by DC Comics – such as free comics and nifty paper masks – there’s something to do every year for Bat Fans of any age.

But this year, DC Comics did something a little special for Batman Day: A Harley Quinn takeover.

September 11th, 2017 marked 25 years since Harley Quinn first appeared on Batman: the Animated Series. So, it made sense that – given how close this special day is to Batman Day, that they let the Clown Princess of Crime share the spotlight with Batsy a bit.

I had planned for a more ambitious Batman Day – a lot of driving, multiple shops, and a trip to Barnes and Noble. Unfortunately, I felt horrible on Saturday, and hadn’t slept. So we settled on a trip to a participating Barnes and Noble.

My nieces grabbed lots of goodies and their free comics, and I participated in trivia, as well as my own comics and goodies. I took advantage of a sale on DC graphic novels, and made it a pretty good day, despite feeling less than awesome.

The Haul:

Overall, it was a fun time, and I’m always happy to take time to nerd out and jump on deals.

Did you go to Batman/Harley Quinn day? Get any deals? Make some insane hauls? Let me know in the comments!
