Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn, Where to Begin?

I was in a store today and saw a whole bunch of graphic novels that I was thinking of buying, especially since I’ve been on a bit of a Harley Quinn kick since first watching the animated series. But I couldn’t decide just where to begin. Does anyone have advice on where I should start?

Try the get to know section of the Comic Book area. That will help you get started with Harley’s comics. I hope you have fun with her comics. Heroes in Crisis is a recent miniseries that co-stars Harley Quinn. I’ve heard the Harleen Black Label book is really good.



Harleen is an EXCELLENT series as far as her origin goes.

If you like novels get Mad Love by Paul Dini & Pat Cadigan.

Injustice Ground Zero was good as well.

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy has just wrapped up and it was SUPER good, but you should really read Heroes In Crisis before reading that.

Other than that just jump right into her solo series here in DCUniverse!!! It’s super silly…but…HEY!!! That’s a big part of what we love about Harley Quinn!


Totally agree, Mad Love is a great place to start.


Some good Harley Quinn starting points:

-Batman: Harley Quinn, a one-shot and the first book in the main comic continuity to star Harley
-Harley Quinn (2002-2003), her very first ongoing series
-Harley Quinn (2013-1016), her New 52 ongoing and the beginning of the Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti run, which has served as the basis for most of her modern comic adventures from this series forward
-Harley Quinn (2016-present), Harl’s current ongoing, which is currently written by @DCDaily’s Sam Humphries

Hope those can be of help @patterson65.37405. :harley_hv_1: :harleyquinn_hqas:

Also: The title of this thread reminds me of the theme song to the TV show Paladin. “Paladin, Paladin, where do you roam?”. It’s a good show.
