Harley Quinn didn’t hit comic book pages until a year later in September of 1993 in Batman Adventures #12 – but this isn’t the first published appearance of the character.

A magazine that has started to garner a lot of attention is Comics Scene issue 31. This magazine features a very early image of Harley Quinn in an article featuring an interview with Harley Quinn creator and writer for the Batman the Animated series, Paul Dini.
