We start the issue in the Joker’s headquarters. A warehouse on the outskirts of Gotham City. Late in the evening.

On a Thursday

I do not know why but that opening cracked me up I literally sol’d (snorted out loud). Nothing is going right in the Jokers latest plan and yet again Batman and Nightwing are responsible. Or are they? It’s actually Harley who is to blame, she has set the Joker up! Why do you ask? It’s simple she is jealous of the Bat and the attention he receives from her puddin, attention that should be going to her. Instead, The Joker ignores her.

The only way Harley can think of getting her rightly deserved attention is to mess up his plans and face his wrath which really says a lot about their relationship when she would be willing to be the target for his killer revenge just to get some form of attention from him. However, The Joker still focuses on Batman and finally Harley snaps and gives the Joker something else more immediate to focus on. Harley is away to be carted back to the Asylum when the other love of her life turns up to cart her away to safety I’m sure you can guess who but you will have to read it to be sure.

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
