Left rattled by the events of Dark Knights: Metal, Bruce Wayne must come face to face with the ultimate evil spawned from the Dark Multiverse. One part Batman one part Joker. The Batman Who Laughs.
“A Batman who laughs is a Batman who always wins.”
The mastermind behind Dark Nights: Metal, Scott Snyder, gives you a look inside the most terrifying version of Batman ever! He and superstar artist Jock (Batman: The Black Mirror) kick off a chain of events that makes Dark Nights: Metal seem like child’s play.
The Batman Who Laughs not only survived his fight with The Joker at the end of Dark Nights: Metal, but is now enacting a sinister plan across the Multiverse–something both terrifying and oddly familiar. When Bruce Wayne realizes the only way to stop this madman is to kill him, he must consider violating the very rule Batman can’t ever break … the rule that created this insatiable villain–the Batman Who Laughs!
As Bruce begins to deduce that his current life is somehow wrong and that all the mistakes he’s made are somehow connected, the Batman Who Laughs unleashes a brand-new evil. Enter one of the most punishing Batmen of the Dark Multiverse: the Grim Knight!
Collects The Batman Who Laughs #1-7 and The Grim Knight #1.

Meet the clown princess of crime! When psychologist Harleen Quinzel met the Joker, the last thing she expected was to find love – but as the Joker preyed upon her mind, she fell for him, becoming the crazy sidekick Harley Quinn! Now join in on the action as Harley breaks her ‘pudd’n’ out of jail; forms a gruesome twosome with Two-Face; arranges an all-bad-girl slumber party; hires some henchmen; reveals her secret origin; and arranges a heist – on stately Wayne Manor! This first collection of Harley’s madcap adventures is presented by author Karl Kesel (“Superman”) with fan-favourite pencil-and-ink team Terry and Rachel Dodson (“Wonder Woman”) – bad has never looked so good!
Anyone close to me or who follows the like page/personal FB wall knows that I love comics. Yeah folks, I’m not just a fan of mystery and erotic tales. Like in the bedroom, I like a little variety. *winks*
Harley happens to be my favorite evil comic chick. She just a big ball of fun and what a dresser. *grins* Yup, I have several Harley items in my closet/dresser drawers. This Christmas, Dirk got me a BUTTLOAD of Harley gear and several of her comics. I read this one first and I have to say it’s WICKED GOOD.
She’s twisted but in a very delectable way.
I know it would detrimental to my health to hang with her but maybe I could be persuaded to attend one of her slumber parties. I’ll even spring for the pizza. (Read the comic to find out why that’s funny.)
