Happy Harley-Days

Christmas is coming, and with it, three new holiday tales written by me and starring Harley Quinn! November 30th sees the release of the DC Rebirth Batman Annual #1, which features a story with the legendary Bat-artist Neal Adams! I had a great time with this, and it was such fun to do a sequel/homage to Neal's classic 1969 Christmas tale, "The Silent Night of The Batman." On December 14th, Elsa Charretier renders what happens when Harley hosts her own Christmas entertainment extravaganza in the DC Holiday Special. Wonder Woman shares warm holiday memories. Batman does his last minute shopping. Flash and Captain Cold go caroling. Black Canary and Zatanna...well, I don't want to give the whole thing away. Just drop into the party, you'll be glad you did. And finally, Harley and Ivy appear in a sweet little love story (not really a holiday tale, but close enough to Christmas to count) by my pal Bill Morrison for Marc Andreyko's very important Love Is Love book, out on December 21st.  Check out the sneak peaks below! screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-12-15-09-am

Keep cool…

We're still working on getting things up and running, both here on the site AND with the return of the Radio Rashy podcasts.  Lots of good friends have told us they miss the old show, so we're going to be doing some more of them this summer.  I should have some more information on that with the next update. Today... It's a zillion degrees here in LA and Super Rica is beating the heat through meditation.  That looks refreshing. super rica-2

Late Summer

Our ice cream man looks like Vladimir Putin. Oh, make no mistake, the cheerful gent who drives his tinkling dairy treat wagon thru our neighborhood every summer day is a fine fellow.  He's friendly, extremely courteous, and his truck is always well stocked with Bomb Pops, ice cream sandwiches and chilly confections molded in the shape of the most popular cartoon characters. But there's no denying the chap is the spit and image of the famous Russian leader. Perhaps he's some long-lost twin relative. Or maybe he actually IS Putin running a bizarre sideline business here in Burbank, CA. Unlikely we know, but stranger things have happened. Just as strange, in addition to frozen dainties, the fellow also sells old-fashioned non-PC playthings the likes of which haven't seen the inside of a Toys R Us in decades. Perhaps they are still produced in Russia, which would explain how "Vlad" always has a full stock of them. I'm talking bow and arrow sets, cap guns and bombs, metal darts, and probably a few more destructive things hidden among the Fudgsicles. This delights Rashy no end, who is easily his best customer. PUTIN In other summer-related news, we seem to have completely lost track of our intern, Melodie D'Amour. Sometime after the Fourth of July Melodie grabbed a beach ball (and Super Rica's piggy bank), announced she'd be "working at home" and we haven't seen her since.  As there have been unconfirmed reports of her running wild in Cabo San Lucas, we've come to understand that "working at home" is Melodie-speak for "On my boyfriend's yacht". We are currently interviewing for a new intern. MELODY-revised-2
