I got this ex-library hardcover from Better World Books. It's from a webcomic featuring "lighter, softer" - and often holiday-themed - stories featuring the DC characters Batman and his friends and foes.

In this one, centering on Valentine's Day, the Joker is irked by having to put up with his girlfriend Harley's over-the-top romantic gestures - so he sneaks out to do some crime-type stuff. Then he gets the bright idea of stealing a love potion from Poison Ivy, so he can prank the city by pairing people up as he chooses. Ah, but a mishap leads to him spilling the potion all over himself, and winds up with a whole crowd of women - led by some of the top female villains in town - pursuing him with love on their minds...

There's a second story about Damian Wayne, the next Robin in training, with its own amusing moments - as Damian goes hunting for an artifact stolen during a Lunar New Year celebration.

And at the end of the book there are some nice bonuses, from a vocabulary list to some tips about cartooning.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the series, with some entertaining tidbits.]
