Ep 77 – Harley, Harley, Harley
“By all means, keep selling Mad Love. But do you have to sell it as a coloring book?”
Jessica Plummer, “A Close Look at the Paradox of Harley Quinn” in BookRiot.
Harley Quinn has quickly become one of the most popular, and the most controversial, characters in comic book media. Returning guest and comic book nerd and critic extraordinaire joins us for an in depth look at this fascinating character, whose portrayals span the range from wacky kids show villain to abuse survivor to kinky sex symbol. In this episode we look at the evolution and development of the character, the questions she raises both in her stories and about her stories, and our hopes for her future.
Jessica Plummer lives in New York and loves Superman very very much. You can listen to just how much on her Superman podcast, Flights and Tights (http://flightsandtights.libsyn.com/). She also writes about comics and books in general at BookRiot.com (https://bookriot.com/author/jessica-plummer/). Find her on Twitter @jess_plummer. In this episode she references her recent article on BookRiot, “A Close Look at the Paradox of Harley Quinn,” quoted above.
