Love the color work on the Joker.
That may be one of the creepiest Joker drawings.
If she's that crazy before she has a ring, there's no way the Joker is dumb enough to see what happens when she gets one.
Because there relationship is all about love... Sure.Before he'd marry Harley, he'd marry himself (or Batsy the only two things he really loves).I'd say in some shriveled up part of his heart he does loves her but it's way to conventional to really matter. His hate/love with the Bat keeps him warm at night.KB_SBI
I am a huge Harley fangirl, but even I know he doesn't love her. He is abusive and cruel and leads her on for his own uses. I still love them together, but I want to know where in the hell she is coming from.
Oh god, I heard the whole Joker response in Mark Hamill's voice.
These character responses make me realize how much MRTIM sucks at writing dialogue.

He hasn't killed her, abandoned her, or gotten bored and forgotten about her.For the Joker, that's a love for the ages.Besides, Harley would get bored within days if Mr. J fully reciprocated. The relationship they have is as close to true love as those two wack-a-doodles can reach.
@Beachfox, you clearly don't remember the episode of TNBA where he was all set to drop a bomb the size of a subcompact car on Gotham City, knowing full well that she was within the blast radius. Or Mad Love, where she hung Batman upside-down so the piranhas would look like they were smiling, and he got pissed off at her over it.
To be fair, that's TAS and not the comics. Although in the comics hasn't she been running with the Gotham City Sirens, as an almost anti-hero type role, completely separate from the Joker for at least a year or two now?
Now THERE'S a wedding issue just waiting to be written. I'd recommend Paul Dini. Gold.
because doing the right thing is what the joker has ALWAYS been about....
Sometimes I think Harley will never step up and do right by the Joker.
While reading this strip I finally got why her name is Harley Quinn. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
"...it's way to (sic) conventional to really matter..."I have no idea what this means.Also: shippers. Nuke 'em from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
yay laughing fish!
@Gabriel: To be fair, Harley Quinn was created for B:TAS, not the print comics. Ergo, her primary continuity is the DCAU.
Oh come now...*Everyone* knows that Harley and Poison Ivy are the OTP.Sheesh!
Joker definitely loves Harley -- just in his own, insane, psychotic way. It doesn't make their relationship any more right, but it's true.And even if he does love her, he definitely wouldn't have any qualms about killing her. He might miss her a little at first, but he'd get over it.
