I’m hoping that you readers have seen some of my “Batman Day” posts by now since its been something that I have discussed for about three years now. If you don’t know what the heck I am talking about just click HERE to get a little bit of an overview of what it is and then indulge in the latest development and announcement from last weeks SDCC about this years event.
The Press Release:
In celebration of Harley Quinn’s 25th Anniversary, this year the bubbly Super-Villain will take over DC’s annual Batman Day celebration on September 23, 2017. The announcement was made today on the DC Harley Quinn: Celebrating 25 Years panel at SDCC. The panel included moderator and current HARLEY QUINN writer Jimmy Palmiotti, and panelists Amanda Conner, Paul Dini, Chad Hardin, Alex Sinclair, Tara Strong and more!
Harley Quinn debuted on Batman: The Animated Series in the episode “Joker’s Favor,” which originally aired in September 1992. Co-created by the acclaimed Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series, DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY) and Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond) Harley Quinn spawned the now popular and plentiful comic series and is one of the fastest growing characters in DC history, becoming a top ten character in only the last 25 years.
DC will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Harley Quinn in a big way, with key new releases in the coming months including, HARLEY QUINN: A ROGUES GALLERY—THE DELUXE COVER ART COLLECTION, HARLEY QUINN 25TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL #1, and an oversized anniversary issue featuring Harley’s entire cast of crazy characters, HARLEY QUINN #25. Stay tuned for more details on Harley Quinn’s takeover of Batman Day on September 23.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey I have a lot of love for Harley Quinn and quite a few of my lady friends do some amazing cosplay of her at the various conventions like NY Comic Con and beyond – Shameless plug, just hit our Official Instagram by clicking HERE and scroll through until you see them. There are quite a few to admire that’s for sure and you can thank me later okay? That said I am really a little disappointed in the fact that we are going to lose Batman Day in the proper sense. I’m a Gemini so always think of the other side of the coin and figure that doing both will not hurt. This lets the fans who love the Bat get their fill of Caped Crusading coolness while those who adore the mirthful minx that is Harley Quinn can get their jollies as well. I’m a fan of both and wouldn’t mind some special edition freebie comics which you know come part and parcel on these kinds of celebrations. It’s still a couple of months away but when I learned about this I decided to queue up a post for you all to be in the aware. So what do you think of the upcoming “Harley Quinn Day”? Are you psyched or psychotic HAHAHAHAHAHAHA or do you agree with my take on the whole thing? Let me know down in the comments section below.
