HAPPY FREAKIN’ BIRTHDAY HARLEY QUINN! This episode is dedicated to the fourth pillar of DC Comics, the Harlequin of Crime herself Harley Quinn. It has been 30 years since Harley Quinn originally appeared on Batman: The Animated Series. Since then, Harley’s popularity skyrocketed to the point where she has become a household name. So to celebrate our favorite clown girl, we’re bring you an extra sized episode with special guests!
Our Harley revisit from our original Harley episode would not be complete without being joined by the expert, Violet. She joins Dan to bring new history and insight to the character through her massive love for the character. They discuss the best places for you to learn more about the character with different flavors that may fit your taste where others may not. Harley has so many iterations that there is something for everyone!
Violet and Dan talk about the importance of Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Connor‘s run on the character for redefining who she is as a character now. The duo deserve more credit for the incredible boundary pushing dirty minded work they did with the character to reinvent her from being the Joker’s sidekick into a character who now is a multi-time movie star.
With this being a very special episode about Harley, we are joined by a few guests to talk about Harley! First up, we have Patrick Schumacher back to chat about the show he co-created Harley Quinn on HBO Max. Our second chat is with Tee Franklin who has been writing the tie-in comics for the series and has a very cool upcoming Harley Quinn journal coming out next year. Our third guest is Stephanie Phillips who is the current ongoing writer of Harley Quinn. Each brings their own unique take on the character and we’re so glad they could join us in our birthday special.
