Once upon a time, there was Batman: The Animated Series. And it was good.

Then someone decided to shake up the status quo, slap more action-ready redesigns on everybody, replace half the writing staff, and tie it all to the Superman cartoon airing at the time. And the results were decidedly horrible mixed.

Somewhere closer to the positive end of that scale, we have 1996's Batgirl Adventures #1, sort of a pseudo-sequel to 1995's Batman Adventures Holiday Special as well as another prototype of TNBA's Girls' Night Out. Once again, there's not much plot other than "the ladies of Gotham kick lots of ass, add one cup of humor and stir", but it's a formula that's made Paul Dini plenty popular, and I'd be lying if I said I weren't fond if it.

(Doesn't hurt that the yellow-and-black look is one of my favorite BG costumes of all time, either.)



The other (other) World's Finest, behind the cut! )

Oh, there was a girl from Gotham...

That walked the hero's road,

For the sake of her old father...

It's to her I sing this ode.

With ra-zor sharp intellect...

She struck down every foe.

Joy and inspiration,

It's these to her we owe...

Gray and blue...

Gray and blue...

The girl from Gotham wore the gray and blue...



So of course, this comic is best known for introducing a sociopathic criminal. C'est la vie. )

By the way, I'll be going through a lot of Babsgirl stuff this week, so if there's anything you want me to keep my grubby little hands off of, speak up now. Thank you.

Harley Quinn is easily one of the most popular of the Batman Rogues, and in part that's due to her rounded characterisation, humour and tragic backstory... but there's one kind of questionable part that creators over the years have had a bit of difficulty ironing out.

Namely: How she got her degree.

Trigger warnings for implict slut shaming and victim blaming )

Up Next: Big Barda and Superman in THAT crossover...

Comic Vine: Chad, I was going to ask, what’s it like because the scripts, the stories are nuts.

Chad Hardin: It’s…you like being surprised. You like having new things and new experiences. With Jimmy and Amanda, it’s never a dull moment. You never see it coming. You can’t predict where it’s coming from. It helps keep the art fresh because you’re not bored, you’re not doing the same old thing over and over again. It’s always something new and always something fun.

This is an exceptional piece of news which I would normally post on noscansdaily, but I think this deserves a post based on the promo piece just released by WB and DC and which DOES include what looks to be the new look for a series of picture books and hopefully comics too!

FINALLY some recognition that young girls can be superhero fans too! )

The Harley Quinn Convergence is perhaps closer to a "Gotham City Sirens" reunion as it involves the main three members; Harley herself, Poison Ivy and Catwoman.

Harley's back in the classic BTAS outfit (always my preferred version, stylistically)

And all from the pre Flashpoint DCU )

Since it's been out long enough now, more from the Harley Quinn Valentine's Day Special.

And I can honestly say I never thought we'd see this old favorite...

...in an actual Batman comic. 9 pages out of 39.

From Harley Quinn #13

Harley & Peej are fighting Clock King & Sportsmaster in a shopping mall. Sportsmaster has caused a huge explosion, sure to kill him (though not Peej). Clock King, however, uses a little time travel device to go back a minute to rescue his friend.

Power Girl took most of the explosion, but is O.K. Except...

From Harley Quinn #7

There's a ever increasing bounty on Harley's head. While sunbathing on Coney Island's beach (even though Harley doesn't tan) Ivy explains that she and Sy Borgman, aka Syborg, who we met here...

scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/5133681.html

...have traced the posts updating the bounty to Harley's own laptop. It seems Ivy and Sy go back a ways. They conclude that someone has been breaking into Harley's building and using her laptop to update the bounty. Ivy decides to use this to set a trap for the culprit.
