Hiya puddins, and welcome to the next thrill-packed week of Superman action and adventure!
This week, we’re going outside the usual comfort zone of Superman starring titles, and into the world of that lovable multimedia sensation Harley Quinn! She’s on the lamb in the City of Tomorrow, but why? Read on to find out, puddin’!
Here’s what cooking for Harley’s adventure on Superman’s turf:
-Superman: The Animated Series Season Two, Episodes 16, 17 and 18, the acclaimed “World’s Finest” three-parter, which is not only the best on-screen debut team-up of Superman and Batman, but the best Superman-themed entertainment to feature Harley Quinn.
What are your thoughts on Harley’s adventures in Metropolis? If she gave up her life of crime, could Harley make it as a columnist at the Daily Planet?
Do you “ship” Harley and Jimmy Olsen? I mean, Jimmy sure did before, well, you know…
Harley’s Little Black Book #5 serves as a fun callback to Superman vs. Muhammad Ali. Have you read that tale, and how would you compare it to Harley’s bout with The Man of Steel? P.S.: Did you pick out the famous folks in Neal Adams’ cover for this book?
Harley Quinn has popped into Superman’s world on occassion and in different media, not only in this week’s selections, but elsewhere too. What media featuring the two do you raise your Mallet of Happyness for?
It’s Wednesday, and Wednesday means New Comics Day! Here are the brand new comics featuring Superman and related characters for the week of 2/19/20:
Ooh ooh, aah, aah-Jimmy see, Jimmy do! Jix and Jimmy go back to Gorilla City, where they had a one-night marriage-stand. (Don’t believe it? Go reread Superman: Leviathan Rising #1!) Jimmy’s sister Janie and Doc Mantel get to Gorilla City to warn Jimmy about what Doc saw in the future, only to find it’s the attack of the 50-foot Jimmy!
Invasion of the Supermen part two! Eradicator and his strike team sweep across Earth with devastating consequences. The Justice League finds itself battered and overwhelmed by an enemy more powerful than even Superman. Batman and Green Lantern plan a counter assault, but it can’t work without the Flash, whose connection to the Speed Force has become unpredictable-and possibly fatal. With the team at half-strength, will it be enough to hold their enemies at bay?
The secret origin of the Legion of Super-Heroes revealed! Exactly how did this ragtag group of idealistic, super-powered teens from all across the galaxy find each other? What pulls them and keeps them together? Another gorgeous issue of DC’s future superstars, including the Jon Kent Superboy, also reveals clues to how Aquaman’s lost trident may be the key to Earth’s future and survival!
The Daily Planet is under attack! When the Klan invades the newspaper’s office, they kidnap Lois Lane, Perry White, and Inspector Henderson. The Klan’s attacks have separated our heroes, forcing Roberta and Jimmy Olsen to step up and help save the Daily Planet staff.
But the Klan has one more surprise to reveal. In order to save his friends and stop the Klan once and for all, Superman must face his own identity to unleash his full potential and ultimately accept who he really is.
Inspired by the 1940s Superman radio serial “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” New York Times bestselling author Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Boxers and Saints, The Terrifics, New Super-Man) concludes his personal retelling of the adventures of the Lee family as they team up with Superman to smash the Klan.
