What's New In The New 52: Harley Quinn's Quest

What's New In The New 52: Harley Quinn's Quest

Yesterday, I told you a little bit about Count Vertigo’s Villains Month one-shot. Today, our Villains Month spotlight continues with a sneak peek at DETECTIVE COMICS #23.2: HARLEY QUINN.

Following the explosive events of FOREVER EVIL #1, the Suicide Squad has disbanded. No longer a member of a team, Harley Quinn finds herself free for the first time without any ties to a particular group. On her quest for self-discovery, she returns to Gotham City – but it’s not the same place it was before she left it. So naturally, Harley has a little scheme to shake things up. But that’s all I’ll say about that for now …

While Harley’s origin was told in the pages of SUICIDE SQUAD, there’s an untold chapter that will be revealed for the first time in this unique one-shot. You may think you know the whole story of her transition into a super-villain, but when you read the very first meeting between her and The Joker, you’ll see a whole different side of Harley than you’re used to.

And for the diehard Harley Quinn fans out there, keep your eyes peeled for a few Easter eggs scattered throughout the issue – like a reference to THE BATMAN ADVENTURES: MAD LOVE (Harley’s first appearance in comics) and a nod to actress Arleen Sorkin, who voiced Harley on the television show, Batman: The Animated Series.

Come back tomorrow for more!
