Harley Quinn and Batman Gets a Prequel Comic and a Sequel

It’s the team-up we’ve been dreaming of as the cute psychopath Harley Quinn joins the brooding Dark Knight for a brand-new Digital First comic series, Harley Quinn and Batman. The series, from Batman: The Animated Series writer Ty Templeton and artist Rick Burchett, is an exciting new five-chapter prequel adventure to the Batman And Harley Quinn animated film coming out this August from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Harley Quinn is a legend in her own mind, so when she realizes the Joker thinks of her as a sidekick, she takes her revenge. Harley’s now faced with a hard decision to break out as her own super-villain, and she’s willing to go for it!

The digital series will launch Monday, July 31, with the five chapters being released bi-weekly.

But wait! Where’s the sequel?

Beginning in October, seven sequel chapters will be released digitally each week, and to make it extra-crazy, the names have been flipped! Batman and Harley Quinn is a collection of stories tied to the events of the film. These chapters will feature stories and art by Jeff Parker, Craig Rousseau, Luciano Vecchio, Amanda Deibert, David Hahn, Dario Brizuela, Matthew Dow Smith, Sandy Jarrell, Ty Templeton and more.

All 12 chapters will be collected in trade paperback in summer 2018. Digital chapters will be available for download beginning July 31.

Review: Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 Ch. 1

bm66mww77_ch01-d_sfcoverIt was a matter of time before these two classic properties came together, but we finally have the 1960s Batman meeting the 1970s Wonder Woman in a digital first series that begins with a flashback and I think introduces some more modern characters into the classic setting.

What mysteries are hidden in the book Ra’s al Ghul just hired Catwoman to steal? And why does this caper lead Batman down memory lane-to his childhood fight against actual Nazis?!

Written by Jeff Parker and Marc Andreyko, Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 kicks off with a caper by Catwoman, but quickly dives into the past as Bruce reflects on his childhood and an incident of an auction that was crashed by Nazis and the League of Assassins.

The story is over the top fun as you’d expect with a series such as this bringing together not just the characters but also Ra’s al Ghul, Catwoman, Talia al Ghul, and Nazis in a story that feels like it’s a mix of classic Batman with Indiana Jones.

There’s a certain camp you’d expect when reading this type of story and Park and Andreyko delivers making sure to not take things too seriously and also work it so it feels fairly natural as to how Wonder Woman fits into it all. And since this is a digital chapter which tend to run pretty short, there’s actually a hell of a lot fit in there.

The art by David Hahn continues the style we’ve seen and has become what I’d expect for this setting and these series. It’s solid and I’d be interested in seeing how it flows in comiXology compared to my reading it as single pages in a PDF. So, my reading wasn’t ideal in reality and there may have been some things I missed due to that (Wonder Woman spinning to change could be really cool digitally for instance). Still, it’s solid work that continues the style we’ve seen before.

Overall, it’s a digital chapter, so a bit short for me, but it does pack in a lot and continues the fun tone of classic Batman and Wonder Woman. I can’t wait to read the next chapter and see where things go from here.

Oregon’s Office of Emergency Management and Dark Horse Comics Team Up to Teach Tsunami Preparedness

Oregon’s Office of Emergency Management and Dark Horse Comics team up to prepare for the Great Oregon ShakeOut on October 20 and introduce Without Warning: Tsunami, a new comic touting tsunami preparedness. The 16-page comic strip sequence chronicles a mother/daughter camping trip on the Oregon coast when an earthquake and resulting tsunami strike. The duo stays safe and helps others in danger.

Without Warning: Tsunami is the second time that the partners have come together to collaborate on bringing preparedness messaging to youth. In 2013, OEM’s Geologic Hazards Program Coordinator Althea Rizzo approached Dark Horse with a proposal. An avid comic book fan herself, Rizzo knew that it was a good way to reach a new target audience. In August 2014, Without Warning was released, telling a story of an Oregon teen who reunites with her family after a major Cascadia Earthquake.

Rizzo came up with both stories which were scripted and illustrated by Dark Horse team members Jeremy Barlow and David Hahn.

Oregon is located in the Cascadia Subduction Zone, a 600-hundred mile earthquake fault stretching from offshore Northern California to Southern British Columbia.  According to scientists and other experts, a large 9.0 or higher earthquake could strike Oregon at any time.

Without Warning: Tsunami is available online. Printed copies can be obtained through local county emergency management offices.

Review: Batman ’66 Meets the Man From U.N.C.L.E. #1

Batman Meets Man from Uncle 1Two 1960s television icons cross paths for a groovy, globe-spanning adventure in this one-of-a-kind miniseries. The deadly organization known as T.H.R.U.S.H. has a new twist in their plans for world conquest—they’re recruiting some of Gotham City’s most infamous villains! Agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin bring this information to the one man who knows everything about these new enemies: Batman. Before you can say “Open channel D,” the Dynamic Duo and the Men from U.N.C.L.E. are jetting off to Europe to thwart the schemes of this deadly criminal cartel.

But, before Batman and the Men from U.N.C.L.E. can team up, each has their own adventure in a comic that feels like a double feature in many ways. I never watched The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and am vaguely familiar with the television series, so I appreciated writer Jeff Parker‘s handling of the first issue which does an excellent job of introducing both halves of the story that brings these two properties together.

Batman ’66 Meets the Man From U.N.C.L.E. #1 does a solid job of getting folks caught up as to who the players are and why they might meet. It captures the vibe of the two series, one a bit more more serious than the other, but that still works as a tone is balanced that makes the two work together. On their own, the two stories that make up this first issue really work on their own, and work together. That’s impressive in many ways, and part of the first issue’s success is Parker’s focus on fun and action while celebrating the source material.

The art by David Hahn is solid work. There’s two stories here, the campy Batman and the more serious spy story. Each story’s art matches its tone, yet at the same time works together so that it doesn’t feel like there’s a difference between the two stories.

The first issue doesn’t give us the whole “meet” part of the series title, but sets up enough fun that I want to come back for the second issue to read more.
