    1. No. Because it is only the year given and not the month. Some say it is the true first appearance. People have contacted the publisher. Market still ultimately decides.

  1. The tape and book set is probably the first published appearance. Information from the publisher puts it out ahead of Batman Adventures 12. It is a book but the cool thing is that the art is done sequentially!

  2. Scoobt Do Teamup 12 came out in November 1995 and is the first appearance of Harley outside of the Adventures run.

    1. Scooby Doo Team-Up title didn’t show up until 2015. The only Scooby comic in 1995 was done by Archie, which I doubt had the rights to introduce DC characters in the books.
