But for Harley, “as quietly as she can” is plenty loud…and before she can say “Holee bounty hunters, Batman,” The Joker’s sicced every super-villain in the city on her pretty ombré head—and the only team tough enough (or crazy enough) to come to her defense is the Birds of Prey!

I gotta tell ya'll a secret. In 2020, nothing in comics turns me off like seeing a (of 6) after the title. I see that, I'm immediately out until the trade.

What is Marvel Voices? Not the book in Op, the podcast that the book is based on.

Really looking forward to what Marvel is coming out with this year though. If DC cant deliver some new good books, at least Marvel is doubling down.

I like them making new things miniseries then expanding them rather than the old days of cancelling 'ongoings' after a single arc.

I wouldn't even mind the 'season' thing applying to every series.

There's theories going around that it takes place either before Snyder's run or during it but before everything goes to shit with the next crossover involving them curbing Perpetua and preventing everything from going to shit.

I mean with the way #39 ended I dont see how it could be anything other than that. I for one am not all that interested in the book anymore though.

I'm kind of there, too. Unless they announce and release it to where it'll wrap up well before the end of the year, I'm not all that hyped after that ending.

Now Eradicator roping in some Daxamites for a New Krypton? Sign me the fuck up.
