It wasn’t nearly as massive as my November haul, but here’s my little December haul:
Back Issue – Batman the Animated Series 25th Anniversary issue – September 2017
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.
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!
It’s no surprise that I’m pretty excited to see the first appearance of my favorite character on the big screen. I’ve been a fan of Harley Quinn since day one of Batman: the Animated Series. And now, I get to see a version of her inspired by her appearance in Suicide Squad (the comics), and portrayed by the lovely Margot Robbie!
So, of course, I had to plan an outfit for the occasion. Here’s the cosplay progress so far:
