From Harley Quinn #4 - 6

An especially nasty organization of Russian terrorists was broken up by a joint American & Russian operation. But, a group of the deadliest of them escaped justice with a great deal of wealth, and are currently in New York, plotting the downfall of the American Dream.






Fortunately, the safety and security of our great nation is in good hands.

Comedic ultraviolence following. If DC & Marvel ever do joint projects again, I want a Harley & Deadpool team-up. But could the Multiverse survive such a union?

But first, an interesting article on how Harley became the biggest selling female character in comics, and DC's third highest selling title after Batman and Justice League...

"Her real-world path to icon status is bizarre and unprecedented in the superhero ecosystem. But here she is: Jewish, queer, morally questionable, deeply imperfect, and beloved by millions."

From Harley Quinn Annual #1

Harley was worried. Ivy hadn't visited or called for too long. Finally, she learns why. Ivy's in Arkham. So, it's Harley to the rescue.

But, there's more going on than she could have expected. Someone has taken over Arkham, and is using it for his own ends.

What grim, dark, mind has taken over Gotham's version of Hell?

From Harley Quinn #12...

While confronting the Clock King and Sportsmaster, Harley & Peej have found themselves transported to a distant galaxy. They learn that the only way to get back to Earth is to retrieve the Infinity Rings, which are in the hands (or rather, on the hands) of Manos, the most feared man in the cosmos. He seeks all the power in the universe and intends to destroy everything that is. When Harley asks what he has planned on the day after, she's told that's a good question, that the end game doesn't seem to have been thought out. He lives on a bunch of floating rocks with his kids, who all hate him.  Peej is hoping to talk him into helping them return home, but Harley points out that "this guy is Hitler in space time a billion."

After fighting a giant space pizza, they arrive, only to be able to watch helplessly as Manos destroys an inhabited planet with his Cosmic Organ...

But what do you do with all the pet poo?

From Harley Quinn #2 & 8...

Harley's set up her new home, with its colorful tenants and businesses. Aside from being a landlady, she's also balancing her career as psychiatrist Dr. Harleen Quinzel with her roller derby job. There's the pesky assassination attempts to deal with. Oh, and her subconscious speaks to her through a stuffed beaver that only she can hear. It's a bit singed, having been recovered after the Joker blew up Harley's storage shed.

She learns that a bunch of animals in a shelter are about to be euthanized. She tries to adopt all of them, but the shelter turns her down for some reason. So, only one thing to do... Call Red.

I'm surprised that the new Harley Quinn series hasn't gotten more love here, considering its strong sales and the fact that it has Harley actually in character. Indeed, it seems a few stories published by DC in the last few years didn't happen, judging from how the characters, including the police, are with Harley. I'm guessing certain stories, such as that issue of Detective, are going to quietly disappear from continuity as of Convergence, as her book has the more popular characterization.

Here, she's been captured by an obsessed fan who was posing as a cop. Fortunately, this is a subject Dr. Quinzel knows all about...

Now that we've relived Identity Crisis (and survived to tell of it), let's take a trip back to the Golden Age, when members of the JLA's predecessor underwent their own, somewhat different crises of identity. This issue-length Gardner Fox story, from All Star Comics #30 (Aug-Sept 1946), is so delightfully cracky it took four artists to illustrate it. It previously appeared, way back when, on s_d 1.0, so no better time to post it again.

Much of the comic-sphere is abuzz with DC's announcement about what's coming in June after their "Convergence" event ends...

For one thing the "New 52" will no longer be used as a tagline or a concept. (After more than three years, that seems fair enough, it was hardly "New" to begin with... and also, they're down to 49 titles, so it wouldn't even be accurate.

A LOT of info there, and at least one cover scan that I think is worth discussion!

But then... I would! )

When last we left our somewhat amnesiac heroine, she snuck out of the dorms in the middle of the night, damaged a rare, antique library book, and set fire to a shrine in the cemetery.

And in this issue: Arkham Asylum! Kinda! )

Jeff Lemire plus Terry and Rachel Dodson revealed a cave painting foreshadowing the future of the Earth One graphic novels, but I need help naming two Titans in it. Has anyone read this?

Now, I think I've been very restrained for the most part of late, with a distinct lack of chronically imperilled acrobatic heroes, more or less.

Time to sort of remedy that with some scans from a book I found yesterday which was an impulse purchase and not a bad one at that, It's a hardback book called "The World According to the Joker" (There's also one called "The World According to Batman" which I didn't pick up)

It's a glimpse into the Jokers head-space as part of a series of psychological examinations by Dr Arkham

It goes as well as you might expect )

I'm a little more generous to the New-52 than some other fans, there are a lot of books I've enjoyed, including Wonder Woman, but one thing I have not been able to forgive is making Diana the daughter of Zeus. Of course Azzarello and Jim Lee had their reasons for doing so, as stated in this article:



“She’s going to learn she’s not who she was told she was,” Azzarello told the Post. “Everybody’s got a father, even if he’s not the nicest guy in the world.”

DC Co-Publisher Jim Lee told the Post that rewriting the character’s origins to make her the offspring of two parents rather than, say, sand could make Wonder Woman accessible to many readers. “In this case, making her a god actually makes her more human, more relatable,” said Lee.


I reject that reasoning... first off I question why in a universe where there are a number of last of their kind aliens, demons, and immortals we read about that a woman forged from clay is such a stretch. The two largest religions in the world share a creation story where a man was formed from dust, and his wife from his rib.

Never mind the "everyone has got a father," thing while true from a biological perspective (depending on how you define father), does not necessarily play into the life of every person raised by a same-sex couple, or single parent.

And most importantly, it undermines a parallel to Greek Myth and the origin of Pandora in Hessiod's Works and Days. More on that

No spoilers yonder for Batman #37 (BECAUSE SH*T WENT DOWN, YO), but there is one nice little callback from Death of the Family, showing how much ol' Mister J loves setting up his punchlines.


Also could someone loan this Joker a wig? )
