To Bane, With Love from @kleffnotes

This article is a bit of a follow-up piece to my Harley and Ivy article that primarily focused on the animated Harley Quinn series. While watching it my wife Krista decided that her favorite character was Bane and as one of the few people on this planet, if not the only person, who reads all of my articles she noted his lack of presence in my previous feature. Instead of crafting an addendum and then putting an update I thought I would instead write about the character of Bane and how the Harley Quinn series handles this particular character.

The Bi Line: Harley Quinn and #Harlivy from @kleffnotes

In the past few years I have grown to love the character Harley Quinn primarily through the Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner comics. I was very dedicated to having Harley on my pull list, now that I live in the country the pull list is gone, but I do still read some Harley, buy Harley merch, and re-watch Harley Quinn: The Birds of Prey. When I heard about the animated Harley Quinn series I was very curious about it, but I didn’t want to commit to another streaming service. When season one come out on DVD I ordered it and convinced Krista we should watch it. Not only did we watch the first season, but within three days we watched all of season two and let me tell you it was completely worth the binging.

The Bi Line: Ending Pride with Some Recommendations from @kleffnotes

Pride is coming to an end technically, though really shouldn’t we just be celebrating our identities every month? As someone who has never lived near a place that does a Pride event, the closest was about an hour and a half away and I was only ever able to go one time since I don’t drive, strangely quarantine allowed me to actually participate in one for the first time in ages. Lez Hang Out, one of the podcasts I try to actively listen to every week, hosted the live stream with guests from across the country. While I was not tuned in for the entire stream, what I did see was a delight and I hope that even if we aren’t in quarantine next Pride month that they host this even again.

The Bi Line: Queer Comics for Quarantine from @kleffnotes

Okay, so we might be on the verge of the end of the world, but for those of us who aren’t plagued by the constant feeling of dread that seems omnipresent, especially if you aren’t sure your job will actually exist with shutdowns of related businesses, you might find yourself with free time. Admittedly you might find yourself with free time even if you don’t want to have free time and in that case you may need a distraction. As I ponder what my life might be in the next coming weeks, months I thought I would share some comics that can help you get through the down time that include queer female leads.
