In Gotham City, where heinous acts of violence are a daily occurrence, the GCPD relies on Harley Quinn, a young forensic psychiatrist and profiler, to consult on their toughest cases. But Harley is haunted by one case in particular—when she found herself at the center of a horrifying crime scene the night she discovered the body of her roommate, left with the signature of a notorious serial killer—the Joker.

When a series of gruesome displays of murder appear throughout the city, the past and present collide as Harley’s obsession with finding the depraved psychopath responsible leads her down a dangerous path. She must decide how far she is willing to go, and what lines she is willing to cross to solve these cases once and for all.

DC Black Label is the publisher's imprint dedicated to mature readers. The imprint includes Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo's Batman: Damned, Sean Gordon Murphy and Matt Hollingsworth's Batman: White Knight and Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's Batman: Last Knight on Earth. Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.'s Superman: Year One will release from the imprint later this year, with Geoff Johns and Jason Fabok's Batman: Three Jokers as well as John Ridley and Alex Dos Diaz's The Other History of the DC Universe announced, though without release dates.
