to 'Collecting Harley Quinn', dedicated to
Paul Dini & Bruce Timm's creation:
Harley Quinn. Harley Quinn is not the
story of an honorable woman and her quest
for justice. Instead, it's a love story
gone horribly, horribly wrong. Harley
Quinn is the Joker's lovable, but
dangerous moll, and she'll do anything for
her puddin to get his way. But when she
declares her independence from "Mister J."
she will embark on a fun but dangerous
journey. This site is 100% Harley, and has
everything about her, starting from her
debut during No Man's Land all the way to
her current monthly series with Poison Ivy and Catwoman, Gotham City Sirens! If you have any comments,
suggestions, or contributions, please do

HARLEY'S LATEST NEWS

Wesker's memory, helping Batman and

plans. In Birds of Prey #105,
Harley Quinn joined the ranks of the
Secret Six, replacing the Mad Hatter, but left soon after.
