New Comics Spotlight: Harley Quinn Holiday Special
Why not spend the holiday season this year in the company of Mr J’s sociopathic girlfriend, the clown princess of crime Harley Quinn, in her very own holiday special. Written by the always amazing Amanda Conner (who also drew the issue’s cover) and drawn by various guest artists including Darwyn Cooke, join Harley in three separate festive tales.
Beginning with: Bad Toy, where Harley has to find homes for a legion of puppies and kittens, with much mirth and mayhem ensuing as only Harley can deliver. Next up is: Get Yer Cheer Outta My Ear! Harley finds that a Humbug has taken up residence in her ear, this little fella hums constantly to festive tunes, driving Harley insane and has her reaching out to an unlikely ally to rid herself of this unwelcome resident.
Our favourite of the bunch has to be Killin’ Time where the mistress of mischief shockingly discovers her first grey hair, upset by this, Harley sets out to get revenge on the person she feels is responsible for the offending strand – Father Time! Fantastic humour throughout with some genuinely laugh out loud moments as Harley attempts to get through the festive season intact. The Harley Quinn Holiday Special is available right now from your local comic book emporium.
