we see the follow up to Harley and Ivy being captured, the adventures of Gotham’s newest hero, and an old ally finally starting to work up from rock bottom.
In a really big departure, Harley and her best friend Ivy are completely absent from this episode as we focus mostly on Batman, and a bit on the hapless Commissioner Gordon, as well as Batgirl and another new hero.
Legos have been around a long time.
Warnings/disclaimers: The Killing Joke is not a typical Batman story. There are a lot of serious plot threads in this one and subject matter that might offend, insult, or be something of a trigger issue for people. You are warned. Proceed at your own risk.
Birds of Prey is a long time favorite of mine. Chuck Dixon started the series, although it’s probably most associated with fan favorite Gail Simone. The Birds’ long history was wiped out when DC did their line-wide reboot, and the new book just wasn’t as good. I had every single appearance of the Birds until that point, and ended up dropping the “DCNU” version within three issues. But, the Birds are back, and the new book looks fantastic.
