HARLEY QUINN VOL. 5: THE JOKER’S LAST LAUGH HC
Written by AMANDA CONNER and JIMMY PALMIOTTI
Art by AMANDA CONNER and CHAD HARDIN
Cover by AMANDA CONNER
At last, Harley Quinn and The Joker come face-to-face in these stories from issues #22-25! Harley’s got an endangered friend to save, but there’s just one problem: she’s got to get through Arkham Asylum first! Unsurprisingly, Harley’s not eager to set foot in the site of some of her darkest hours…and she definitely isn’t ready to face a certain someone who’s laughing at the end of a dark hallway. The life of Harley’s new love, Mason Macabre, is in The Joker’s hands…but can he or Harley survive another round of The Joker’s twisted mind games?
Plus: for the first time in book form, it’s the story previously available only to Loot Crate subscribers! In this story featuring art by Amanda Conner, Harley finds a genie in a bottle—and redefines the phrase “be careful what you wish for”!

Jimmy Palmiotti: When the opportunity to work with Loot Crate came about, the idea we all had in mind was to create a fun, off-the-wall, brand new Harley Quinn one shot that was easy to follow and offered up a fun story that both fans and totally new readers would enjoy, showcasing the fantastic work of Amanda, Chad Hardin, Paul Mounts and John J Hill. At first it was intimidating, knowing that this single book would get into the hands of so many people, but I think this forced the team to try even harder to make this issue a major standout and have elements that showcased what we‘ve been doing for the past few years on the series without alienating a single new reader. It’s always a delicate balance, but we were up for the challenge and I think the book came together beautifully.
JP: Amanda Conner and I wrote the issue, with the bulk of the art done by Amanda, and a few pages featuring classic Harley, Joker and Batman by series regular Chad Hardin and Alex Sinclair. All of the color was by the amazing Paul Mounts with the talented John J Hill on lettering. This book features the “ A” team on the regular series on this one shot, and although it stands alone, it also fits into continuity introducing a new character to the Harley Universe.
