Holiday shopping getting you down? Is the thought of spending Christmas with your in-laws enough to make you consider moving to North Pole? Have you heard “Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer” so… many… GOSH… DARN… TIMES that you’re on the brink of running someone down yourself? Well, don’t do that (no, really, please don’t do that). Instead, grab a copy of this week’s HARLEY QUINN HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1. It’s 48 pages of merriment and mayhem guaranteed to make even the biggest Scrooge smile.
Writing thirty-five issues of a series is a considerable undertaking for anyone, but when they’re thirty-five of the most critically acclaimed, character-defining issues in modern super hero comics, that’s something worthy of celebration and maybe a little awe.

Why should the adults have all the fun? While here at DCComics.com, we tend to think of characters like Kal-El, Bruce Wayne, Diana of Themyscira and Hal Jordan as ageless, they’re clearly well over the legal drinking age. And that’s fine. It allows us to believably present Bruce Wayne as a brilliant entrepreneur and philanthropist overseeing a multi-billion dollar company when he’s not fighting crime, or Hal Jordan as a former test pilot who would be a logical candidate for a Green Lantern ring. There’s a level of drama that’s only possible when our characters are adults.
This week, Tiffany and Blair take a page from Batman and give us an all-out assault… of access!
