Batman Adventures #12 (1993) – The first appearance of Harley Quinn. This comic features the “animated” version of Harley and not the actual “continuity” Harley Quinn” within the DC Universe. There are approximately 14+ or so books before she ever appeared within the confines of the actual DC Universe. Here are some of those early appearances (listed below).

Batman Adventures: Mad Love #1 (1994) – Second “non-continuity” Harley appearance.

Batman Adventures Annual #1 (1994) – Third appearance and legend John Byrne actually pencils a Harley Quinn story here. How great is that???!!

Batman Adventures #28 (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #1 (1995)

Batman Adventures: Holiday Special (1995)

Batman and Robin Adventures #8 (1996)

Batman and Superman Adventures: Worlds Finest (1997)

Batman and Robin Adventures #17 (1997)

Batman and Robin Adventures #18 (1997)

Batman Chronicles Gallery #1 (1997) – Harley made an appearance in the regular DC Universe with a pinup in this comic before the next book listed here.

Batman Harley Quinn (1999) – Here is the first official Harley Quinn entry (appearance) into the DC Universe. Also an origin issue. A modern day classic cover; Alex Ross.

Batman No Mans Land Gallery #1 (1999) – Harley’s second appearance is very much like her first. In a gallery book. So this means that this comic is not really recognized as her second appearance in the DC Universe, very much like her first appearance.

Batman #570 (1999) – Harley’s second appearance. Many collectors are hoarding these away for a future gauntlet throw down to maximize their potential earnings. Not an easy book to get.

Detective Comics #737 (1999) – The third appearance of Harley Quinn.

Action Comics #765 (2000) – Harley steps out of a Batman comic universe for the first time. This comic is also the first time she appears in the same book as Superman. A definite collectors item here and it’s an affordable book too!

Harley Quinn #1 (2000) – 7 years after her debut into the comic book world, Harley finally gets her own title.

Wonder Woman #164 (2001) – Harley in the same comic as Wonder Woman for the first time. A ridiculously gorgeous Adam Hughes cover as well.

Batman 613

Batman #613 – Click to Buy/Bid

Harley Quinn #4 (2001) – First appearance of the Quinntets.

Harley Quinn: Our Worlds at War #1 (2001) – This comic not only possess a great story, but it also marks the first time Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti get their creative Quinn popped. Amanda and Jimmy are THE go-to when it comes to Harley Quinn and this is their first work on the character.

Click on the RED links or the comic cover to buy/bid from All sellers on Ebay.

Jokers Last Laugh Secret Files #1 (2001) – A couple of months later, Amanda and Jimmy do a backup story in this book. The beginnings of the Quinn/Conner/Palmiotti threesome. A Threesome that will become a monthly romp in about 13 years.

Batman #613 (2003) – During Jim Lee’s epic Batman run, he penciled Harley into the Hush story line. He got her right on the cover too. When a talent like Jim Lee draws any character for the first time, it’s time to take notice.

Harley Quinn #38 (2004) – Walking Dead artist Charlie Adlard pencils the final issue of Harley’s first comic book run. Nice way to go out right? With Charlie at the helm and a low print run, this makes for an attractive comic.

Suicide Squad #1 (2011) – This comic is essentially Harley’s first appearance “post Flashpoint” and the character in the movie will be in direct correlation to THIS particular time frame. Hence the high mark selling points in the aftermarket. Her second appearance came a week later in Batman #1 (2011).

Suicide Squad #6 (2012) – The origin of Harley Quinn. The first of two parts. Two major comics for ANY Quinn collector. Great cover too.

Suicide Squad #7 (2012) The origin of Harley Quinn concludes. Another stellar cover.

InvestComics Hot Picks – New Release Comics on 12/18/13

If you were a comic book fan back in the 90’s you will remember the fun that followed the Todd McFarlane Amazing Spider-Man run. A fellow by the name of Erik Larsen took over the reins for a while and the ride was just as superb a ride as from McFarlane. So many characters introduced and one of which will be returning this week in Superior Spider-Man (2012) #24. Check out Cardiac in his first appearance by the stellar Mr. Larsen in Amazing Spider-Man #344(1990). Before Cardiac was his villainy self he was Dr. Wortham in Amazing Spider-Man #342(1989). Fun times those 80’s/90’s Spidey runs were. Fun times…….So in closing, with the recent Spider-Man 2 trailer coming out, it’s a safe bet to think we will see more Spidey coming our way. Actually it’s a sure bet, Sony pictures said so. The question remains. Who is to get the tap on the shoulder to get in there next? No one knows, but maybe, just maybe Cardiac will be answering that call. You never know!

A return appearance and an end for a Spider-Man book this week. Check out the last issue of Scarlet Spider (2012 2nd Series) #25 as many questions are answered with some surprises as well.

The new Lobo shows up in the latest Supergirl book. Check out Supergirl (2011 5th Series) #26 for that. If you are one that pines for the old Lobo, don’t forget that his first appearance is in a very affordable comic; Omega Men #3 (1983).

Batman and Robin (2011 2nd Series) #26 will give readers the retelling (new 52 style) of Two-Face’s origin. Batman’s foe first appeared in Detective Comics #66 (1942). He’s a great villain, but doesn’t deserve the cash that some dealers/sellers ask, but they’ll get it nonetheless. Staying with the Batman theme here. The successful Harley Quinn #0 leads into Harley Quinn (2013) #1 this week. Expect sellouts on this one. Harley is a popular one……for now. Do not put all of your eggs in one basket here. Harley is a cool character, but she will not sustain an uptick in the long run. That said, the Adam Hughes variant looks like a sold out book with nice profit potential there. Signature Series would be a nice way to go with this one. As always, high grade too!

Sinister Dexter (2013 IDW) #1 will make its U.S. Debut. A popular comic strip in the UK, now comes to IDW. If this comic hits right, you may want to look for 2000 A.D. #992 (1996) as the earliest first appearance found. Probably nothing to get your hopes over, so don’t go ga ga over this.

X-Men (2013) 3rd Series #8 will feature the debut on Monet. It’s always nice to catch a first appearance in an X-Men book, so be sure to check this out.

A recent fan of InvestComics reached out to thank me for some Hot Pick advise. InvestComics recommend Voice in the Dark #1 (sold out, second print already printed) as he flipped the comic for $12. This Wednesday Voice in the Dark (2013 Image) #2 will hit the shelves. What will this comic bring? The speculator always has to be careful with the second issue. The number two issue (and 3) are essentially the most vital in a series as far as the speculation market goes. Why is that? The follow-up issue to a number one issue must be met with the same interest as the first or the series will fall flat in the aftermarket. Word of mouth will get around as a YEA or Nay on this series after Wednesday. You must keep a pulse on what the fans are saying as well as the aftermarket. Being on time is another huge factor, but we’re talking about interest in storyline here right now. The story has to captivate the interest of the fan in the second issue. If it does not, the aftermarket is nil.

All New X-Men #20Locke and KeySome number one issues to check out this week; Teen Titans Go (2013) #1 will be a “go” to book this week. Look for tremendous interest here. A cool storyline hits Illegitimates (2013 IDW) #1 and check out the Bill Willingham variant on this one, another zombie book 8-bit Zombies (2013 Antarctic Press) #1, an interesting plot line in Midas Flesh (2013 Boom) #1, another Star Wars comic Star Wars Darth Vader and Cry of Shadows (2013) #1, Ghost is back Ghost (2013 Dark Horse) #1, and Lisa gets her own book Wonderful World of Lisa Simpson (2013) #1.

Also check out the awesome variant cover from Locke and Key (2013 7th Series) Alpha #2. Dave Sim pays homage to Spidey.

Rounding out this week we see the cover to All New X-Men (2012) #20. Every so often I link fans back to the InvestComics special I ran over a year ago called Romantic X-Men Images. It’s a collection of X-Men covers that depict various X-Men team members in the act of public displays of affection. Why this particular team has so many covers like this is a bit mind boggling really. So I will add the cover of All New X-Men #20 to this collection of Romantic X-Men Covers. If you missed the original article with the covers, click HERE.

Thanks again for your patience everyone. See you next week!

Invest wisely.
