this was something i was messing around last year after seeing assault on arkham
i often do these little storytelling practices, especially stuff that has a different mood from my usual work.
in this case a dark pretty much humorless retelling of harley's story.
it's an elseworlds approach so a lot of freedom was taken, but basically i had this idea of humanizing villains. harley always struck me as a fascinating character because she was a psychiatrist. she could literally recognize her own pathology while being unable to stop it
like i said, it's an elseworlds take. some things aren't the same. harley here is a skilled , if tunnelvisiones psychiatrist who sees the joker as both a challenge and a potential solution to her theory of mental disorder as a survival mechanism.
what starts of as a professional fascination goes horribly wrong.
no, it will not be finished, no it will not be published, yes this is just a bit of glorified warmup fanart
