Hey Mavericks fans, are you ready for another Throwback Thursday? This week we’re focusing on a key comic from the mid-90′s, The Batman Adventures: Mad Love, featuring the origin of Harley Quinn!
As you may know, Harley was originally conceived as the Joker’s henchwoman for the prime-time “Batman: The Animated Series” cartoon. She quickly amassed a fan following which grew to rival the Joker’s, and she’s become a massively popular character in her own right. What you may not know, however, is that her original, iconic costume design was inspired by a weird dream sequence in the daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives”, or that Harley was never intended to be anything other than a background character that went away never to be seen again after her first appearance. Viewer interest kept Harley coming back though, and it was only a matter of time before she made the leap to comics, debuting in print in The Batman Adventures #13 in 1993. Mad Love followed a year later and was an instant sales and critical success, winning an Eisner Award for Best Single Issue in 1994.
This is a comic that belongs in the collection of any Harley Quinn fanatic, and Mavericks has it! You can find it in our key issues case at the rear of the store. Stop by to pick it up today, but don’t delay or the joke will be on you!
