Harley Quinn and Batman #1 comic reviewA prequel of sorts to DC’s new animated straight-to-DVD release Batman And Harley Quinn, the new digital series from artists and writers tied to Batman: The Animated Series begins here with the opening story by Ty Templeton and artist Rick Burchett focused on Harley Quinn‘s betrayal of the Joker.

Set in the style of last season of Batman: The Animated Series (I would have preferred the original look of the characters, but this version does offer us a cameo by Nightwing), the comic opens with Batman and Nightwing breaking into the Joker’s lair. Ready for the Dynamic Duo, the Joker is flabbergasting when all his defenses and plans fail spectacularly leading Harley to reveal that she was responsible. Not getting the rise out of Mr. J. she hoped, Harley does get a hand by Poison Ivy who shows up to rescue her friend from Batman and the police.

Batman: The Animated Series - If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich? television review

For Throwback Thursday we look back at one of my favorite episodes of Batman: The Animated Series. While the Joker was appeared in more than two-dozen episodes (and a couple of movies), another of Batman’s most notable adversaries was give far-less screentime. “If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Rich?” offers us the origins of the Riddler (John Glover). After software designer Edward Nygma is screwed out of his proceeds from the best-selling video game he created, the man disappears only to pop-up later as a super-villain taking advantage of the game’s popularity to attack Daniel Mockridge (Gary Frank) using both riddles and the theme park created from the game as a weapon against his former boss.

I’ve got to admit I love Bruce Timm returning to the world of Batman: The Animated Series, however the recasting of Harley Quinn leaves something to be desired. Batman and Harley Quinn. The movie will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on August 29th.
