SDCC’13: DC to launch Harley Quinn series with Palmiotti and Conner
There are so many announcements coming from the San Diego Comic Con, and the show hasn’t even started yet! For those attending the show this week, I’m sure there will be a lot of questions asked at the DC panels about the upcoming Harley Quinn series by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner.
In an interview with CBR, Palmiotti and Conner talked about the project.
Jimmy Palmiotti: When we were offered the book, it wasn’t something we said yes to right away. We needed to do a lot of reading and playing catch up on what the character has been up to since we knew the other version so well. Amanda and I spent a lot of time talking about approach, if we can find a real voice for the character , and what the series would be about before we sent in our pitch. On the surface, this is a no brainer with the two of us writing, but like anything else we do together, we needed to really dig in and find the who , what and where of the new Harley.
Conner: That original version is what seems to be stuck in my head, but at the same time, I always thought it would be cool to see Harley (but not her Harleen self) outside of her costume, and what she would be like. That’s kinda what we have with this version of her.
The teaser image looks great, and it will be interesting to see if the duo can bring the charm and magic to the character like they did with the Power Girl series from a few years ago.
