Batman Adventures #12 is the first appearance in comics of Harley Quinn. She actually debuted on the Batman Adventures animated series. The episode was "Joker's Favor", first airing on September 11, 1992. It was about a year later she showed up in a comic book, and that issue now sells for hundreds of dollars. She didn't actually enter the DC Universe for another seven years, but we're not talking about that comic, because this all about holy grails, and that holy grail is the first time Harley Quinn showed up in print.

To understand this discussion we need to review the events of Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland, published in 1988.
I was really just looking for something to review and decided to revisit Batgirl, despite Barbara Gordon not acting much like the Batgirl I've come to know. It looks like all of that was part of story, but to say more than that would be spoiling it.
