At New York Comic Con, DC Comics announced Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti were returning to Harley Quinn. There are two things that make this miniseries even more exciting: Amanda is also drawing the interiors, and it’s being released under DC’s Black Label (mature) imprint.
The premise deals with Harley returning to Gotham after having avoided the city for some time because she broke up with Joker. She gets an offer she can’t resist and tries to sneak into the city before anyone realizes she was there.
Obviously stealth isn’t one of Harley’s strongest qualities. Luckily she’ll get a little help from the Birds of Prey.
Amanda made the following statement:
“Jimmy and I are so looking forward to this project. I’m excited to be co-writing it, but it’s been some time since I’ve been able to draw interiors, so I’m doubly excited. Harley is a blast to write and draw; throw the Birds of Prey into the mix and it’s even more fun. And since this will be a mature readers title, we’ll do our best to get away with as many shenanigans as possible!”
“Amanda and I are super excited to be creating this new series for DC. We’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to let loose on a project with a no-holds-barred Harley story where we revisit Harley’s supporting cast and take her on an adventure back to Gotham. Teaming up with the Birds of Prey, Harley will turn all their worlds upside down—exactly how she likes it. Working with Amanda on the art and storytelling has been a blast so far and this book will be like nothing we have ever done before.”
Check out the preview pages with Amanda’s pencils and inks.
The series will be colored by the amazing Paul Mounts.
