In a city overrun with larger-than-life criminals, the always-laughing villain stands alone. A complete psychopath with no moral compass whatsoever, the Joker, whose real name and identity remain completely unknown, is characterized by his chalk-white skin, green hair and a permanent rictus grin stretched across his face. But there isn’t a single thing funny about this particular clown, who only finds humor in the suffering of others.</p> <p>The Joker first appeared in Gotham City around the same time that the Batman arrived on the scene, and since their very first confrontation, the Clown Prince of Crime has been the Dark Knight’s most formidable nemesis. While Batman represents justice and order, the Joker is his complete opposite, seeing himself as an agent of chaos, the living embodiment of the cruel randomness of fate. The Joker’s psychosis causes his personality to shift between goofy prankster and mass murderer on a dime, making it impossible to predict his next move. It’s this unpredictability that really makes him such a dangerous opponent.</p> <p>Certainly, no villain has managed to inflict as much pain and suffering on Batman as the Joker, who has on more than one occasion brought death to Bruce Wayne’s extended family. As long as there is a Batman bringing justice to Gotham City, there will be a Joker to bring nightmares.</p> <p><br /><em><strong>For more on the Joker's history, <a

With so much happening, we’re looking forward to taking a couple of days to relax, unwind, sip some hot cocoa and maybe check out a couple of DCTV shows. We think that sounds like a pretty great afternoon—especially the hot cocoa, it’s FINALLY cooling down out here in Burbank—but we have some news for you that’ll make it sound even better.</p> <p>If you’ve been interested in checking out <em><a href="/tv/titans" target="_blank">Titans,</a> </em>but haven’t had a chance because you don’t have HBO Max or DC Universe, you can now watch the first episode absolutely free. Robin, Starfire, Raven and Beast Boy—you’ll meet all of them as events unfold that will lead to the formation of one of DC’s most iconic super teams. (And yes, this is the episode that includes Dick Grayson’s infamous Batman line. You know the one.)</p> <p>After that, it’s time to get crazy with everyone’s favorite red-and-black bad girl. The first episode of Harley Quinn’s critically acclaimed <a href="/tv/harley-quinn" target="_blank">adult animated series</a> is also available to stream for free, and it’s not to be missed. It’s violent, crass…and absolutely hilarious. It’s also just what the doctor ordered for this moment in time. After all, who couldn’t use a laugh right now?</p> <p>Both shows are available through HBO Max, but you don’t need to be a subscriber to watch them.

href="https://www.readdc.com/Injustice-Gods-Among-Us-2013-1/digital-comic/T1156600015001?ref=c2VyaWVzL3ZpZXcvZGVza3RvcC9ncmlkTGlzdC9Jc3N1ZXM" target="_blank">Injustice: Gods Among Us #1.</a></em> Illustrated by Jheremy Raapack and based on the popular DC fighting game, the book became a hit both digitally and physically. Following Taylor’s departure, Brian Buccellato took over the series for a number of chapters before passing the reins back to Taylor.</p> <p><em><a href="https://www.readdc.com/Injustice-Gods-Among-Us-2013-2016/comics-series/26691?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC9zZXJpZXNTbGlkZXI&amp;Issues_pg=1&amp;cu=0" target="_blank">Injustice: Gods Among Us</a></em> wrapped its initial run in 2016, but the series has continued with <a href="https://www.readdc.com/Injustice-2-2017-2018/comics-series/90902?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC9zZXJpZXNTbGlkZXI" target="_blank">a second comic based on the game’s follow-up</a> and recent digital first series <em><a href="https://www.readdc.com/Injustice-Year-Zero-2020/comics-series/147108?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC9zZXJpZXNTbGlkZXI" target="_blank">Injustice: Year Zero.</a></em> What made the <em>Injustice </em>comics a critical and commercial success when so many other comic book adaptations of video games were not? Let's take a look!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/11-NOV/340257._SX1280_QL80_TTD__5fa9f6d56fe1d8.99164954.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 1076px;" /></p> <h3><strong>Familiar Format</strong></h3> <p>Unlike most other fighting games, <em>Injustice: Gods Among Us</em> was already using familiar DC comic book characters in its <em>Mortal Kombat</em>-inspired franchise. The story centers on a Superman who becomes evil when he witnesses the Joker murder Lois Lane and their unborn child. Superman blames Batman for not putting the Joker down sooner, which causes an all-out war of ideologies between Superman, Batman and their allies.   </p> <h3><strong>Character Beats Just as Important as the Action</strong></h3> <p><span style="letter-spacing: 0.03em;">This comic book had a chance to expand on an already fruitful story thread. The video game’s main focus is, of course, the action, as gamers get to play as their favorite DC characters with dream one-on-one battles coming to life through the lens of </span><em style="letter-spacing: 0.03em;">Injustice’s</em><span style="letter-spacing: 0.03em;"> twisted world.</span></p> <p>With comics’ greater emphasis on story, writers Tom Taylor and Brian Buccellato are able to fully flesh out these characters to an extent the games just can’t. They slow down the story to give a better scope on the characters’ personal connection to the Superman/Batman war. The<em> Injustice</em> comics have a great balance of story and action that fits the narrative of the video game very nicely.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/11-NOV/character_beats_just_as_important_as_the_action_5fa9f70d260269.48536201.jpg" style="letter-spacing: 0.39px; width: 900px; height: 692px;" /></p> <p>Speaking of action, Taylor and Buccellato have some incredible artistic collaborators throughout this book, including Bruno Redondo, who also helped launch Taylor’s current <em>Suicide Squad, </em>and Roge Antonio, who’s illustrating <em>Injustice: Year Zero</em>. These artists put the dream battles from the video game on full display with some wonderful facial expressions that spotlight the story’s strong emotional elements.</p> <h3><strong>The Spotlight Doesn’t Just Go to the A-Listers</strong></h3> <p>And speaking of spotlights, it would have been easy to focus exclusively on Batman and Superman’s antagonistic relationship, but what makes the<em> Injustice</em> series so wonderful to read is just how expansive the universe becomes. Characters like Green Arrow, Harley Quinn and Black Canary become just as important as Batman and Superman. Odd character pairings are what make the book so excellent, as Taylor and Buccellato explore friendships and relationships we don't often see in the regular DC Universe.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/11-NOV/harley%20and%20ivy_5fa9f73d5d0b89.10588645.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 692px;" /></p> <h3><strong>World Building</strong></h3> <p><em>Injustice </em>spent years not only exploring the events of the first game, but its sequel series as well. In addition to strong character work, Taylor and Buccellato brought some brilliant world building, giving us a clear idea of what a universe with an evil Superman would look like. It isn’t pretty, but it's wildly entertaining for readers, with countless twist and turns to keep them on the edge of their seats.</p> <h3><strong>Tom Taylor and Brian Buccellato</strong></h3> <p>Last, but not least—writers Tom Taylor and Brian Buccellato. <em>Injustice</em> wouldn’t be the book it is without Taylor’s driving hand and early mold-setting for the book, Buccellato’s later contributions to a pivotal part of the story, and the many artists that collaborated with them on the title. Taylor launched his DC career with <em>Injustice </em>and has since gone on to build a second equally robust, out-of-continuity universe with <em><a href="/blog/2020/07/07/into-the-world-of-dceased" target="_blank">DCeased.</a></em> In just a few years, he’s become an A-List comic book creator. </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/11-NOV/tom_taylor_and_brian_buccellato_5fa9f75d4434d3.92981921.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 692px;" /></p> <p>Even though this was a huge title for Taylor, Buccellato’s work shouldn’t be overlooked. It’s not easy to take over any title, but especially a franchise in which the previous writer has found such critical and commercial success. Buccellato brings his own flair to the proceedings, while still remaining in sync with Taylor’s character-driven storytelling.</p> <p>Taken together, <em>Injustice: Gods Among Us</em>, <em>Injustice 2 </em>and the currently ongoing <em>Injustice: Year Zero</em> are nothing less than a modern-day superhero epic that will have you on an emotional roller coaster from start to finish. Whether you’ve played the games or not, the <em>Injustice </em>comics represent high-stakes comic book storytelling on a major scale. They deliver thrills, laughs and genuine shocks and offer the perfect DC superhero deep dive for readers who might not be as familiar with the in-continuity DC Universe. In short, the only real “Injustice” here would be if you never got the chance to read them.</p> <p><br /><i><a href="https://www.readdc.com/Injustice-Gods-Among-Us-2013-2016/comics-series/26691?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC9zZXJpZXNTbGlkZXI&amp;Issues_pg=1&amp;cu=0" target="_blank">Injustice: Gods Among Us </a>and <a href="https://www.readdc.com/Injustice-2-2017-2018/comics-series/90902?ref=c2VhcmNoL2luZGV4L2Rlc2t0b3Avc2xpZGVyTGlzdC9zZXJpZXNTbGlkZXI" target="_blank">Injustice 2</a> are both available in full in print and as digital graphic novels.

first introduced by writer and artist Sean Murphy in 2017, has given readers one of the more unique takes on the Dark Knight mythos that we’ve seen in quite some time. It’s offered up new perspectives on the Bat-Family and iconic villains like Mister Freeze and Azrael, brought an added, modern-day complexity to Batman’s war on crime and boldly shaken up the status quo, even going so far as to end its most recent miniseries by sending its hero to jail. But one thing that doesn’t get discussed much is that more than any other series, <em>Batman: White Knight </em>has given us all a clear idea of what Harley Quinn saw in the Joker that made her fall in love with him.</p> <p>We suspect a lot more people will be talking about it after <em><a href="/comics/batman-white-knight-presents-harley-quinn-2020/batman-white-knight-presents-harley-quinn-1" target="_blank">Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn,</a> </em>the new <em>White Knight </em>miniseries which debuted earlier this week, finishes its six-issue run. Scripted by novelist (and Murphy’s wife) Katana Collins from a story she cowrote with Murphy and drawn by artist Matteo Scalera, <em>Harley Quinn </em>is both a bold new step for the <em>White Knight </em>saga and what feels like its natural evolution.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/10-OCT/BWKP_HQ_Cv2__5f932dbe8f0660.49026204.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 1084px;" /></p> <p>“I know Sean's always had a fondness for Harley,” says Collins. “I think he always knew that she was going to be an integral part of the story, and I believe it sort of blossomed from there, especially now that she's carrying Joker's twins. There's just so much meat to that. How can you not make Harley her own story? And that's kind of always been the beauty about Harley Quinn, right? When she first premiered on the animated series, she just immediately caught people. I don't even know if they intended for her to become what she is today, but I think that's just the nature of Harley. She tends to make things her own.”</p> <p>But as the debut issue makes clear, what exactly that means can be surprising. Far from the fourth wall-breaking hijinks typically associated with Harley Quinn in comics, <em>Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn </em>is a relationship-driven mystery that finds Harley hunting down a murderer who seems to be taking his or her cues from the Joker’s past crimes. It’s a psychologically driven detective story.</p> <p>“When Sean created this version of Harley, who was now a single mother, it was kind of this natural progression that she would be trying to integrate herself into what she thinks a typical mother should be,” explains Collins. “Also, we were watching a lot of <em>Mindhunter </em>at the time, and I was like, ‘I love this show! I feel like Harley Quinn should be the next <em>Mindhunter!</em>’ And that was sort of the birth of Detective Harley. It makes so much sense for Gotham. I mean, we kind of already have a Batman detective comic, so we’re taking a little bit of that but keeping her fun, playful Harleyisms. I think that there are some ways that maybe Harley has never really known who she is. She's kind of bounced back and forth between a lot of personalities and between being a doctor and being a harlequin with a jester hat. Now Harley is a mom. She’s nothing if not adaptable.”</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/10-OCT/BMWKPHARLEY_2_01_clr_5f932df2070ea2.23972406.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 1063px;" /><br /><span style="font-size:14px;"><em>Unlettered page from Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn #2</em></span></p> <p>That approach to telling a Harley tale is a far cry from the wisecracking, mallet-bashing mayhem that’s typically associated with Harley, but Scalera for one is relishing the chance to tell a different kind of story with the character.</p> <p>“I think my hope for this book is that people will really enjoy its special rhythm,” he shares. “It's something that, especially nowadays, we're not that used to. In TV or movies or whatever, even in comic books, we're used to a really super-fast pace with, you know, a thousand flashy things happening here and there. You always have to catch the attention of the reader, otherwise they’ll get super distracted, so you're constantly bam, bam, bam, bam! This one has its own rhythm. I'm a fan of <em>Mindhunter </em>too, so when Katana said <em>Mindhunter,</em> I immediately understood it. It was like, ‘Oh yeah, that's something I can definitely see in the story.’”</p> <p>Scalera is only the second artist to draw a <em>White Knight </em>story other than Murphy, and the first to draw a multi-issue miniseries. Yet, it’s hard to think of an artist who’s better suited for it. A big fan and close friend of Murphy’s for many years, he describes working with Murphy and Collins as working with family, and regularly references Murphy’s work when drawing <em>Harley Quinn.</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/10-OCT/BMWKPHARLEY_2_02_03_clr_5f932fccdefe93.86788050.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 697px;" /></em><br /><em style="letter-spacing: 0.39px; text-align: center;">​<span style="font-size:14px;">Unlettered page from Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn #2</span></em></p> <p>“He's always been one of my main inspirations,” Scalera shares. “This story in particular needs a lot of details in the settings and environments and in every specific thing. I tried to use some of Sean’s camera angles and the way he uses perspective. I’m trying to do that combined with my style. I don’t know if it's going to be visible on the actual pages, but when I watched some of my friends look at them, they told me they could see that I studied some of Sean's panels to create this specific effect or to have this specific camera angle.”</p> <p>While <em>Harley Quinn </em>is a mystery, it’s certainly not without its share of romance and drama. One of the things that Collins sought out to do was to shake up the beginning of Harley’s relationship with Jack. In the <em>White Knight </em>universe, she meets him before he becomes the Joker.</p> <p>“We decided that they didn't meet at Arkham,” she explains. “That was one of the earliest decisions that Sean and I made together. Jack and Harley did not meet as Joker and Harleen. They met as Jack and Harley. I really loved the idea of building that romance world for them and starting it even before she was a doctor. I absolutely wanted to go in that direction.”</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/10-OCT/BMWKPHARLEY_2_07_clr_5f93302ecfb211.24966459.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 1063px;" /><br /><em style="letter-spacing: 0.39px; text-align: center;">​<span style="font-size:14px;">Unlettered page from Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn #2</span></em></p> <p>“The heart of this story is all about the people,” adds Scalera. “Basically, the whole story is a big mix of human interaction and emotions. So, we wanted to deliver that, especially in the Harley and Jack love story, which is something that hasn't been explored so far because it didn't exist before. So, we wanted to focus on not the two super-villains partnering up, but when they were just Jack and Harleen—just two young people that fell in love.”</p> <p>Of course, that’s not to say the book’s light on action. As you can see from the pages released from issue #2, the next chapter features Harley facing off against Neo-Joker—Jack’s second Harley Quinn who was introduced in the first <em>White Knight </em>series. Collins also is quick to tease the book’s new villains, Starlet and the Producer, who we’ll be meeting in issue #2 as well.</p> <p>“There’s a lot of mirroring certainly of Starlet’s relationship with the Producer and how it helps shed light on Harley coming to terms with her own past and why her own life unfolded as it did,” Collins promises.</p> <p>Along with <em>Harley Quinn’s </em>new characters, there were many established characters that Collins wanted to work into the story, including one that’s brand new to the world of <em>White Knight.</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><em><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/10-OCT/BWKP_HQ_Cv2_var__5f9330c9b2adc0.02129014.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 1079px;" /></em></p> <p>“We have Simon Trent, AKA Grey Ghost, pop in,” reveals Collins. “And he's not just a cameo, he’s kind of an important part of the story and he comes back throughout the book. It made perfect sense because Starlet is this kind of Golden Age serial killer who's targeting Golden Age actors and actresses past their prime, quote unquote. So, you could definitely see an argument that Simon Trent is one of those people who fits into that world.</p> <p>“Also, I really wanted Ivy to make an appearance. So, Poison Ivy’s in there.”</p> <p>But the one element that Collins insisted play a big part in <em>Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn </em>from the jump are its heroine’s two beloved pets.</p> <p>“I am a huge fan of dogs,” laughs Collins. “So those hyenas… I told Matteo at the very beginning, ‘I sure hope you like drawing dogs because these hyenas, they're going to be everywhere.’”<br />  </p> <p><i><a href="/comics/batman-white-knight-presents-harley-quinn-2020/batman-white-knight-presents-harley-quinn-1" target="_blank">Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn

Through February 2021, the full title lineup will feature a combination of monthly and twice-monthly oversize anthologies, as well as a monthly schedule of miniseries and one-shots.</span><br />  </div> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>DC Future State</em> spotlights the World’s Greatest Super Heroes in fresh new roles, with all-new characters taking up their iconic mantles. <em>DC Future State</em> features an incredible array of creative talent, combining award-winning writers and artists with new voices from the worlds of TV, movies and animation. In March 2021, the regular DC title lineup resumes, continuing existing story lines from 2020 and introducing new arcs for the year.</span></div> <div><br /><span style="color:#000000;">In <em>DC Future State</em>, the Multiverse has been saved from the brink of destruction, but the triumph of DC’s heroes has shaken loose the very fabric of time and space! The final chapter of <em>Dark Nights: Death Metal </em>(on sale January 5, 2021)  brings new life to DC’s Multiverse, kicking off this glimpse into the unwritten worlds of DC’s future!</span></div> <div><br /><span style="color:#000000;">“The DC Universe has always been fertile ground for new and refreshing takes on our characters, and <em>DC Future State</em> definitely contributes to this legacy,” said DC Executive Editor Marie Javins. “When the event begins in January, some savvy readers will not only pick up on some of the breadcrumbs that have already been tossed out in our current titles, but they will also find new hints and clues of what’s to come in 2021.”</span></div> <div><br /><span style="color:#000000;">A stellar array of writers and artists are on hand to deliver this unique look at beloved DC characters, including fan favorites such as Mariko Tamaki, Brian Michael Bendis, Gene Luen Yang, Joëlle Jones, Joshua Williamson, Nicola Scott, Cully Hamner and John Timms, along with new voices such as award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (<em>12 Years A Slave</em>), Brandon Vietti (<em>Young Justice</em>), Meghan Fitzmartin (<em>Supernatural</em>, <em>DC Super Hero Girls</em>), Brandon Easton (<em>Thundercats</em>,<em> Transformers: War for Cybertron</em>), Alitha Martinez (<em>REPRESENT!

This villainous regime has taken control of the city, now under constant surveillance. All masked vigilantes have been outlawed and Batman has been killed. But led by an all-new Batman, a new assembly of Gotham’s guardians rise to give hope to all of those who lost it!</span></div> <div><br /><span style="color:#000000;"><u>Oversized 24ֱ:</u></span></div> <ul><li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Future State: The Next Batman</em> #1-4</span></div> <ul style="list-style-type:circle;"><li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>The Next Batman, </em>by John Ridley, Nick Derington and Laura Braga</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Outsiders</em>, by Brandon Thomas and Sumit Kumar</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Arkham Knights</em>, by Paul Jenkins and Jack Herbert</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Batgirls</em>, by Vita Ayala and Aneke</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Gotham City Sirens,</em> by Paula Sevenbergen and Emanuela Lupacchino</span></div> </li> </ul></li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Future State: Dark Detective</em> #1-4</span></div> <ul style="list-style-type:circle;"><li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Dark Detective</em>, by Mariko Tamaki and Dan Mora</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Grifters</em>, by Matthew Rosenberg and Carmine di Giandomenico</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Red Hood</em>, by Joshua Williamson and Giannis Milonogiannis</span></div> </li> </ul></li> </ul><div><span style="color:#000000;"><u>Monthly Miniseries:</u></span></div> <ul><li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Future State: Batman/Superman</em>, by Gene Luen Yang and Ben Oliver</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Future State: Catwoman</em>, by Ram V. and Otto Schmidt</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Future State: Harley Quinn</em>, by Stephanie Phillips and Simone Di Meo</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Future State: Nightwing</em>, by Andrew Constant and Nicola Scott</span></div> </li> <li> <div><span style="color:#000000;"><em>Future State: Robin Eternal</em>, by Meghan Fitzmartin and Eddy Barrows</span></div> </li> </ul><div><span style="color:#000000;"><strong><u>Superman Family </u></strong></span></div> <div><br /><span style="color:#000000;">Due to his involvement in an international crisis happening in the near future, Clark Kent has been rejected by Earth, causing him to focus his lifesaving efforts outside his adopted home.

For the supernatural heroes of Justice League Dark, the very fabric of reality has shifted, and heroes are being hunted.</span></div> <div><br /><span style="color:#000000;">For Flash, Shazam, and the Teen Titans, it all begins when the four Riders of the Apocalypse unleash hell in a battle at Titans Academy, Barry Allen is cut off from the Speed Force, a Famine-controlled Wally West may be beyond saving, and Billy Batson makes a deal with the devil that will change Shazam forever. Off-world, John Stewart and the remaining Green Lanterns are stranded in the shadow of a dead power battery; Jackson Hyde and Andy Curry are separated across the galaxy; and Amanda Waller executes her ultimate plan with a new but terrifyingly familiar Suicide Squad on Earth-3.</span></div> <div><br /><span style="color:#000000;">At the end of time, Swamp Thing reveals its true intention, ruling supreme until a remnant of humanity launches a rebellion, and Black Adam looks to the past as the only way to save the future of the Multiverse.</span></div> <div><br /><span

F&amp;*#ing Quinn?</em></a> The First Lady of Lunacy and her criminal crew have just been renewed for a third season on HBO Max. You heard that right, <em>Harley Quinn </em>fans. You’ve gotten your wish and more is on the way. More F-bombs, more gratuitous violence, more raunchy storytelling and more side-splitting comedy! There are so many reasons why we’re pumped for the next season of Harley Quinn. We could probably list off so many of them that even those of you who haven’t spent time in Arkham would feel like hitting us with a giant mallet. So, to spare your sanity—and our heads—how about we stick to our top five?</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/source-HARQ676Clip03_5f6e9dc8e9b841.99899815.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/01_numbers2016_5f6e9f86b414e6.12790417.jpg" style="width: 160px; height: 144px; float: left;" />There is No Other DC Show Like It</strong></h2> <p>Can you honestly think of any other DC show like <em>Harley Quinn?</em> The final line of the already classic episode “Batman’s Back Man” is—and I quote—“Let’s just torrent some hentai.” You won't find that line in an episode of <em>The Flash</em> or <em>Stargirl!</em> (At least, I hope not!) And don’t forget the musical number about defecation in “Bachelorette” or the fairytale massacre in “The Line.” With Harley Quinn, there are no rules. Given the success of seasons 1 and 2, can you imagine the crazy s**t they’re cooking up for season 3?</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/harley-quinn-5_5f6e9df1f219a7.28458443.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/02_numbers2016_5f6e9f97f08740.22587295.jpg" style="width: 160px; height: 144px; float: left;" />Kite Man Soars Again</strong></h2> <p>Another season of <em>Harley Quinn</em> means more Kite Man, and to that we say hell yeah! We’re not sure why a shameless D-lister with zero self-awareness has captured our hearts, but we totally stan Kite Man. Now that he and Ivy have split up, Kite Man is back on the market! On the <em>Harley Quinn</em> panel at DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse, it was jokingly suggested that he hook up with Punchline and that idea sounds wild enough to work. Maybe we’ll finally see an animated version of the Kitequarters from Tom King’s Batman run. We’ll have to see. The important thing is, we’re getting more Kite Man! Hell yeah!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/harley-quinn-2_5f6e9e1fd50130.83030814.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/03_numbers2016_5f6e9fa9cc4d24.45270085.jpg" style="width: 160px; height: 144px; float: left;" />Will Psycho Strike Back?</strong></h2> <p>By the end of season 2, Doctor Psycho had betrayed Harley’s crew and attempted to take over the world. Of course, it didn’t quite work out for him, and now Psycho is back in Arkham. Where does this leave him for season 3? Will his role in the series now be friend or foe? Harley has shown she can forgive, but Psycho did some f**ked up things. Comic actor Tony Hale gave new life to the character, delivering some of the funniest lines of the series, so we know whatever Doctor Psycho does in the upcoming third season, he'll continue to leave us in stitches.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/jason-praxis-harley-quinn_5f6e9e6f02d854.88683439.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/04_numbers2016_5f6e9fbb783a12.36463714.jpg" style="width: 160px; height: 144px; float: left;" />Deep DC Lore</strong></h2> <p>If you’re a longtime DC fan, this show knows how to make you say, “Holy s**t, I can’t believe they included THAT character!” At DC Universe's exclusive New York Comic Con fan event last year, showrunner Justin Halpern told fans DC had supplied them with an extensive encyclopedia of obscure characters, which they happily utilized. Show us another series where a forgotten 1990s character like Jason Praxis is a major plot point. We’re still surprised that Tommy Tomorrow was mentioned on a DC show. We can’t wait to see the deep dives the showrunners throw our way in season 3.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/source-HARQ993Still33_5f6e9ea2c82fa7.16691997.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/05_numbers2016_5f6e9fcc8ee242.25874500.jpg" style="width: 160px; height: 144px; float: left;" />More #HarlIvy for our Shipping Hearts</strong></h2> <p>Did you really think we were going to leave this off the list? Season 2 ended with the perfect closing shot of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy kissing as they rode off into the sunset, and now that the series has been renewed, we can finally see them as a couple! No more “will they or won’t they” or love triangles, Harley and Ivy are together, and the showrunners have promised it’s going to stay that way. We recently made a list of some of <a href="https://www.dcuniverse.com/news/5-most-romantic-harley-quinnpoison-ivy-moments-comic-books/" target="_blank">our favorite Harley and Ivy shipper moments</a> from the comics and now we’re excited about the possibility of seeing some more scenes like those ones in season 3 of her animated series. There’s a lot of messed-up stuff in this world, so it warms our hearts to see our favorite murder-clown woman and eco-terrorist find love in each other's arms.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/harley-quinn-3_5f6e9f0607d168.97317334.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Honorable Mention: Cheryl</strong></h2> <p>If you haven’t been paying attention to Cheryl, the only female cop in Jim Gordon’s squad, then you’re sleeping on one of the most interesting subplots of the series. We’ve seen this background player rise up from being an Arkham guard, to becoming a member of Gordon’s elite task force, to betraying Gordon to join Bane—when she venomed up and went a bit nuts. Now she’s back with the GCPD, but judging by some of her scene-stealing moments (who the heck drinks coconut-flavored soda?), she should be a character to watch out for next season.</p> <p><br /><em

Or rather, it doesn’t <em>usually. </em>However, as fans of Harley’s spectacular animated series could tell you, Ms. Quinn has some real depth, nuance and gentleness to her in between all of her over-the-top super-villain hijinks and baseball bats to the heads. Which means, if you give the <em><a href="/tv/harley-quinn" target="_blank">Harley Quinn</a> </em>soundtrack a spin thinking it’s going to be all guitar riffs and bombast, you’re in for a surprise. While there are certainly songs that are perfect for chaos-fueled carnivals and Gotham City mischief, there are also moments designed to pluck at your heartstrings—and all of them come care of composer Jefferson Friedman.</p> <p>Friedman’s had an expansive career that began in New York City in the realm of classical composition before shifting into film and TV scoring, and he’s likely had to lean on the full spectrum of his experience while creating the music for DC’s wildest animated foray. With <em>Harley Quinn, </em>he’s had to compose for just about every crazy figure in the Bat-Universe, from central characters Harley and Poison Ivy, to B-listers like Clayface and King Shark, to classic heroes and villains like Batman and the Joker, to…well, Kite Man. That the score still manages to sound amazingly cohesive and tight in spite of all this attests to just what a remarkable job Friedman has done here.</p> <p>With more and more viewers discovering <em>Harley Quinn </em>now that it’s on HBO Max and with Batman Day arriving this weekend, it seemed like the perfect time to chat with Friedman about his work on the <em>Harley Quinn </em>soundtrack and how it feels writing music for such a beloved character. In the process, Friedman discussed his philosophy on electronic scoring, shared how the “Harlivy” theme came together and revealed the surprising story behind those end credits dog barks.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/_MG_5081%5B2%5D_5f62bcab323d89.52094389.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 1050px;" /></p> <p><strong><em>Harley Quinn’s</em> a pretty wild show, and I think the score reflects that. Was there any sort of music you looked to for influence when you learned you’d be scoring the series?</strong></p> <p>I had the rare opportunity on <em>Harley</em> to have all genres of music on the table. My shop was the entire music department, so every stitch of music you hear on the show, from the elevator music inside Harley’s brain to the montage songs to the heist music to each character’s theme, was custom-made for the show. Pat Schumacker and Justin Halpern (<em>Harley Quinn’</em>s showrunners) are on record saying you can interpret the show as Gotham through Harley’s eyes, so I tried to make all the music skewed or amped up in some way, to reflect Harley’s bonkers side. But to answer your question specifically, the first thing I did after our first meeting was put together a playlist of badass women musicians (from Hildegard von Bingen to Yoko Ono to Björk to Missy Elliott) and listened exclusively to it for like a month.</p> <p>One other notable thing about my process for <em>Harley</em> is that I self-imposed a moratorium on <em>any</em> music made for a DC property while I was working on it. I had seen basically everything DC from the 1960s <em>Batman </em>series forward (I’m a fan!), but my idea was that if, for example, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkpOEBMiy0Q" target="_blank">I wanted to add something worthy and unique to the canon of Batman themes,</a> I wanted only some abstracted memory of all his great themes over the years to inform what I wrote.</p> <p><strong>Unlike most DC projects, <em>Harley Quinn </em>seems to involve nearly every DC hero and villain out there. Is there one you’ve particularly enjoyed writing music for?</strong></p> <p>It’s such an honor and truly a joy to be able to write themes for all these huge, mythic characters. Comic books are the mythology of our time, and to be able, in some small way, to help shape and contribute to the formation of these new gods and demigods is a special opportunity and a responsibility I take very seriously. When all is said and done though, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ivC66942Zqs" target="_blank">I think Ivy’s theme</a> is the one I’m proudest of (and was the hardest to figure out of all!).</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/source-HARQ988Still04_5f62bce2e24a05.05172230.jpg" style="letter-spacing: 0.39px; width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <p><strong>I hear a lot of synth in the <em>Harley Quinn </em>score. Is it all electronic? </strong></p> <p>Depends on what you mean by electronic. Did almost everything other than guitars come from inside my computer? Yes. But the line between what is “real” and what is synthetic is becoming increasingly blurry. For example, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-78xJyGo5o" target="_blank">“Please Don’t Go”</a> is just strings and piano. I don’t own a piano. I do however own <em>tons</em> of virtual pianos that were created by sampling every note on some actual piano somewhere. And I sat down in front of my keyboard and it’s me playing that piano. Did I hire string players? I did not. But some violinist somewhere actually made the samples I used, and then it’s my job to “play” those samples. There are all sorts of ways to digitally manipulate the colors of these virtual instruments to make them expressive; making a version of them that sounds real (enough) and that tells an emotional story is part of the art of composing now.</p> <p><strong>One thing that’s pretty unique to <em>Harley Quinn </em>is the way that the show balances anarchic action and crass humor with genuinely tender and emotional moments. Your music for the series really reflects this. I’m curious, is it hard balancing those two extremes in the same score?</strong></p> <p>With every project I work on, I try to be as true to it as possible. My job is to help the showrunners tell their story, to give it more clarity and depth, to speed up or slow down the pacing, to add another dimension to character development. With <em>Harley</em>, I didn’t really have any choice other than to try and keep up with the breakneck storytelling. The show turns on dimes and so should the music. But also, I think part of what makes the show so great is that all these things bumping up against one another make the funny parts funnier and the violent parts sicker and the emotional moments more heartfelt and beautiful.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/VhdHDYzsJQI" width="560"></iframe></p> <p><strong>With “Harlivy” you’ve created a soundtrack to a relationship that has become especially important to fans. Did you know that was the direction the show was going in with season one? When did you start putting the Harley and Ivy theme together?</strong></p> <p>I honestly can’t remember when I found out they were going to eventually become more than friends, but I mean, come on, I think that story arc is set up and becomes pretty clear by the end of the first episode of season one. As to when I put the theme together, it was very early on, probably the second or third thing I wrote. I knew that Harlivy’s relationship (platonic or not) was going to be the main throughline of the show, but I also knew that Harley’s journey over the course of the first season was her self-emancipation from the Joker, and so if I made their love theme overtly romantic from the jump, it would be getting ahead of the story. (I did call it their love theme from day one though.)</p> <p>I reined it in through instrumentation mostly; it’s so sparse—just a Rhodes electric piano, synth bass, an 808 kick, and some texture—it creates a gentle intimacy that’s non-committal about what kind of love it is. But when you write a theme and stick with it and use it to signify only one thing, it pays off, because then you can use it as a storytelling device later by changing something about it. For example, when Harley and Ivy are on the balcony in Themyscira, and their feelings for each other are clearly becoming more of a romantic love, I traded out the Rhodes for a piano and switched the texture out for orchestral strings, both of which tend to signify a deeper emotional feeling. And then of course I made a crazy epic version of it for their first kiss, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylsw0B6oF4k" target="_blank">because only love sets us free.</a></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/11ksJXPrZfk" width="560"></iframe></p> <p><strong>I also think <em>Harley Quinn </em>has one of the best end credits songs in all of animation. Can you talk about how “OOOH” came together? And were the dog barks always part of it?</strong></p> <p>Aw thx! Those end credits were the first thing I wrote for the entire show. It was important for me to come up with who Harley Quinn the character was musically, since she has the most gravity of any character in the show. (For superfans, I said “gravity” not “gravitas.”) Everything I wrote after it orbits around it in some way. There are SO many cues and themes that use some part of that dumb carnival punk song, whether the chord progression or the melody or the instrumentation and so on. It functioned like the canvas I wrote the rest of the music on. <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gu8m1ZjiIYs" target="_blank">“Everyone into the Ice Vagina,”</a> the Nutcracker-y Ice Capades scene, uses a variation of the chord progression; “Rise, Harley Quinn,” when she gains control of Darkseid’s parademon army, is just a straight-on full orchestra and chorus “cover” of “OOOH”…and I could go on and on.<br /><br /> The woofs were serendipitous in fact! We were doing the final mix of the first episode (well, actually, episode three was the first we did) and the credits rolled with the song, followed by Kaley’s “Yes, Norman” logo, complete with her woofs. I heard they were around the same tempo as the song and asked Pat and Justin whether I could try to make them part of the song and they indulged me. And musical rhythm is way more finicky than other things and so moving a sound one frame one way or the other isn’t granular enough, so I’m at the first mix asking our genius mixer George Peters to nudge the woofs a tiny bit one way and then the other and then back a little and forward again so that they sound like part of the song.</p> <p><em>(Hey, it's Pat Schumacker. What Jefferson said is true. I was there to see it firsthand. One thing Jefferson left out was that George Peters is a genius not only for his sonic skills but also that he makes sure there's always a fresh batch of "Fuego" flavored Takis for Justin and me to much on during a particularly strenuous audio mix review, where we have to give notes like "I can't hear the characters talking because of Jefferson's music" or "For the love of all that is holy, please turn down Jefferson's music." Anyway, sorry to interrupt.)</em></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/source-HARQ675Clip06_5f62bdbabb3a96.30482860.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <p><strong>You also wrote music for the DC sitcom <em><a href="/tv/powerless" target="_blank">Powerless.</a> </em>Would you like to take on a more traditional superhero show one of these days? Or do you prefer the sillier side of heroes?</strong></p> <p>Sure, of course! (To anyone making a DCEU tentpole movie, I’m available!)</p> <p>It’s interesting, I had a very non-traditional path to writing for film and TV. I was a classical composer in New York City for twenty years, but I became disillusioned with the scene and needed to make a major career pivot to stay healthy. So, I picked up stakes and moved to LA. I thought what I had to offer this town was Very Serious Music for Very Serious Films, because that’s the only kind of music I had written before. But one project leads to another leads to another, and I ended up working on comedies, which turns out, I’m pretty good at! <em>Powerless </em>begat <em>Harley</em>, and I immediately felt at home writing for animation. My music takes up a lot of bandwidth at times, and with animation you have the luxury of making bigger and bolder musical gestures than you can with live action. I still think I have something to add to more serious stuff though (and currently I get to do that on <em>New Amsterdam</em>). Some of the emo stuff on <em>Harley</em> I think wouldn’t feel out of place in an indie movie, and I’d love to do that kind of work as well.</p> <p><strong>If you had to guess, what type of music do you think Harley Quinn enjoys?</strong></p> <p>Funny you should ask, I’m putting together a Harlivy playlist of what I think the two of them listen to when they’re hanging out at home together. It should be up on Spotify in a week or two!</p> <p><br /><i>Seasons 1 and 2 of Harley Quinn can be streamed on <a href="https://www.hbomax.com/dc?utm_source=dccomics.com&amp;utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_campaign=fusion_launch" target="_blank">HBO Max </a>and <a href="https://www.dcuniverse.com/join/" target="_blank">DC Universe.</a> For more on the show, including articles, trailers and more, <a href="/tv/harley-quinn" target="_blank">visit our official Harley Quinn page.</a></i></p> <p><em>Stream, download or buy the Harley Quinn Season 1 and Season 2 Original TV Soundtracks <a href="https://lnk.to/HarleyAnimatedDCDI" target="_blank">by clicking here.</a></em></p> </div> <div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-inline clearfix"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><a href="/tags/harley-quinn" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">harley quinn</a>, <a href="/tags/harley-quinn-animated-series" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">harley quinn animated series</a>, <a href="/tags/harley-quinn-soundtrack" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">harley quinn soundtrack</a>, <a href="/tags/harley-quinn-animated-series-soundtrack" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">harley quinn animated series soundtrack</a>, <a href="/tags/harley-quinn-original-soundtrack" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">harley quinn original soundtrack</a>, <a href="/tags/harley-quinn-season-1-original-soundtrack" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">harley quinn season 1 original soundtrack</a>, <a href="/tags/harley-quinn-season-2-original-soundtrack" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">harley quinn season 2 original soundtrack</a>, <a href="/tags/jefferson-friedman" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">jefferson friedman</a>, <a href="/tags/jefferson-friedman-composer" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">jefferson friedman composer</a>, <a href="/tags/jefferson-friedman-harley-quinn" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">jefferson friedman harley quinn</a>, <a href="/tags/jefferson-friedman-harley-quinn-composer" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">jefferson friedman harley quinn composer</a>, <a href="/tags/jefferson-friedman-interview" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">jefferson friedman interview</a>, <a href="/tags/poison-ivy" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">poison ivy</a>, <a href="/tags/harlivy" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">harlivy</a>, <a href="/tags/batman-1" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Batman</a>, <a href="/tags/dctv-0" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">dctv</a>, <a href="/tags/dctv" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">#dctv</a>, <a href="/tags/dc-animation" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">dc animation</a>, <a href="/tags/watertower-music" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">watertower music</a>, <a href="/tags/batman-day" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Batman Day</a>, <a href="/tags/batman-day-2020" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">batman day 2020</a>, <a href="/tags/dc-universe" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">dc universe</a>, <a href="/tags/hbo-max" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">hbo max</a></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-reader-cta field-type-text field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Reader CTA:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Read Now</div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-article-header-layout field-type-list-text field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Article Header Layout:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even">Standard Layout</div></div></div><span rel="schema:url" resource="/blog/2020/09/17/musical-mayhem-jefferson-friedman-discusses-the-harley-quinn-score" class="rdf-meta element-hidden"></span><span property="schema:name" content="Musical Mayhem: Jefferson Friedman Discusses the Harley Quinn Score" class="rdf-meta element-hidden"></span> Thu, 17 Sep 2020 17:00:00 +0000 Tim Beedle 465780 at /blog/2020/09/17/musical-mayhem-jefferson-friedman-discusses-the-harley-quinn-score#comments
