Earlier this morning, COMIC BOOK RESOURCES announced HARLEY QUINN.
Hitting stores this November, HARLEY QUINN will put The Joker's love interest and SUICIDE SQUAD member center stage in her own ongoing solo series from co-writers Amanda Conner (BEFORE WATCHMEN: SILK SPECTRE) and Jimmy Palmiotti (ALL-STAR WESTERN; BATWING).
“Harley is a complex character and we are going to build on her background, motivations and her home and supporting cast. Sort of what we did with Powergirl but with a mix of a bit more homicidal maniac added in,” Palmiotti teased to COMIC BOOK RESOURCES. “She is the hero in her own story. What happens, who gets killed, what house gets burned down and so on, well, thats just part of her story. She looks at the world differently and we will be building on that and looking even closer on her past and what makes her tick. There are so many layers to this fantastic character that we cannot wait to explore.”
“A villain almost never believes that they are the bad guy. They usually think that they're doing something for the greater good, or that they're downtrodden and trying to overcome their repressors, or more than likely, they just want something,” continued Conner. “We want to put her in a new surroundings, with new people, and see how she behaves in that environment. Is she going to try to keep it together, or is she just going to cut loose and introduce her new world to the Harley brand of crazy?”
