New one-shot Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity Secret Files #1 dives into Joker’s profile

Out June 6 from Kami Garcia, Mico Suayan and Jason Badower.

Press Release

In DC’s Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity by Kami Garcia, Mico Suayan and Jason Badower, Harley Quinn is hunting two serial killers: The Joker, a brutal psychopath who murdered her roommate and disappeared years ago, and the killer currently terrorizing Gotham City. Throughout the acclaimed series, Garcia has been consulting forensic psychiatrist and behavior analyst Edward Kurz, M.D., to ensure the accuracy of the story and of Harley’s methodology.

“I had worked on an X-Files book, and my friend, Dr. Ed Kurz, was one of my consultants,” said Garcia. “He’s a real forensic psychiatrist profiler. Harley Quinn basically has a very similar job. Dr. Kurz works in a facility for the criminally insane. I wanted to play with the idea of Harley having that training and working as a behavior analyst and a profiler.”

This June, in the one-shot Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity Secret Files #1, see pieces of the puzzle on Harley’s investigation board and steal a glimpse into John Kelly’s high school notebook—a book he still carries today.

“We profiled Joker as if he were a real person,” continued Garcia. “I wanted to write a very accurate procedural. I wanted people to make sure their doors were locked after they read the issue. To really feel like he could be out there.”In this special issue, Dr. Kurz’s work is spotlighted as we reveal secrets from Harley’s past, hidden details of crime scenes, and a real-life profile of The Joker that has driven the progression of his murders in the story!

Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity Secret Files #1, written by Kami Garcia and Ed Kurz, M.D. and featuring art by David Mack, Jason Badower and more, hits shelves on June 6. Cover art is by David Mack.

Joker/Harley Criminal Sanity Secret Files #1, retailing for $5.99, carries an Ages 17+ content descriptor and is printed in DC’s Prestige Plus format (approx. 8.5” x 10.875”).
