Happy Holidays, one and all, and welcome to the sixth day of The Fortress of Baileytude Podcasting Network 2018 Holiday Spectacular! DC Comics recently published a 100 page comic titled World’s Greatest Super-Heroes Holiday Special through their distribution deal with Wal-Mart. I liked the cut of the comic’s jib and thought it might be fun to get together with a few friends to discuss the seven stories inside. The Irredeemable Shag, one of the co-founders of The Fire and Water Podcast Network, invited me to their giant new headquarters, called The Bunker, and so Eliza(my assistant from Views From The Longbox) and I hopped into the car and headed north.
No, Andy, it wasn’t to ski.
This time out I am sticking with Xum Yukinori to discuss the Harley Quinn story from this 100 Page Giant. Harley has discovered that she has a gray hair, which leads her on a quest to find Father Time so she can prevent him from dying, which will birth the new year and thus stop the aging process. Things get wacky and, not to spoil things, this might actually be the best story in the book. Xum and I also discuss Harley in general, specifically how she is perceived both in terms of her relationship with The Joker and on her own.
Next Time: The final story! I circle back to The Middletons and we discuss the Green Lanterns story from this special!
