Fangirls, I’ve been putting this issue off. I’ve been worried about Harley going anywhere near the Joker, and I knew that would be a big part of this issue (he was in the last issue and he’s on the cover of this one). I didn’t even feel up to the challenge today, but I finally got off my bum and read it. And it was far more satisfying than I expected.
Alright Fangirls. We’re back on the horse with Harley, and she’s on the mayor’s Back. This issue starts strong with HQ demanding to talk to the mayor. She thinks that he ordered the hit on Mason while he was in prison. After trying to save him, if you remember, she decided it would be best if he went to Arkham instead. But maybe that’s not the best idea.
Fangirls, the Clown Queen of Crime is absolutely killing it (pun intended). She’s got the mayor in a bit of a vice, working it with the Harley Gang, and about to go bust Mason out of prison. But she gets a call from a not-so-deceased enemy, and has to change her plans.
Fangirls, this business with Captain Strong is getting a bit crazy. Last issue he sent two of Harley’s girl’s to the hospital, and this time he got Harley herself! And the ending…I’m worried for these girls!
Fangirls, I feel like I’ve missed out a ton, not having read this book. Batman: A Death in the Family by Jim Starlin, Jim Aparo, and Mike DeCarlo is a crazily controversial book about the death of Jason Todd. It’s controversial not only because he died, but because readers voted for him to die. There was a phone poll, that readers could call and pay 50 cents to vote if Jason Todd should live or die. The poll was incredibly close, and death won by by just 72 votes, so Todd was doomed to die by Joker’s hands.
Where would we be without villains?
Now Fangirls, I know this isn’t an app, but its a phenomenal game that is available for the most recent systems and their predecessors. It’s fun for everyone, and it’s hilarious.
