First Look: Harley Quinn: Villain of the Year #1

You might be aware of DC Comics’ current big comic event–Year of the Villain. Thankfully, the event isn’t actually lasting an entire year. Harley has expressed her thoughts on Lex Luthor’s latest scheme of “dying” and becoming something referred to as “Apex Lex.”

In this Harley Quinn one-shot, the villains will be gathering to honor the “villain of the year” while also remembering those who have sadly departed.

DC recently ran a poll on their blog to allow readers to vote for the Villain of the Year. The polls are closed now and on December 11, the results will be announced in the issue. Harley will be hosting “Villainy’s Biggest Night,” with the ceremony taking place at the Hall of Doom.

Of course things wont’ go smoothly as one villain has his own secret plan of revenge after being ignored by his peers.

You’ll notice Mark Russell squeezed in one of Lex’s most famous appearances.

“When no one was looking, Lex Luthor

took forty cakes. He took 40 cakes.

That’s as many as four tens.

And that’s terrible.”

Harley Quinn: Year of the Villain #1 is written by Mark Russell with art by Mike Norton and colors by Hi-Fi. The FOC (Final Order Cutoff) is today, November 18, 2019. The issue is on sale December 11, 2019, with a $4.99 price.
