DC Comics to launch new Harley Quinn series

CBR has an exclusive first look at the cover of Harley Quinn #1, which was announced last week at Comic-Con. Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti are teaming up to co-write the series, though they’re still looking for an artist. So how will they decide on a new artist? Dan DiDio took the stage at Comic-Con to address that very issue:

DiDio also took the time to plug Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti’s new Harley Quinn solo book. Answering the oft-asked question at the convention, “Who is going to draw it,” DiDio said they were doing something different.

“Harley is going to audition eighteen different artists to draw the first issue…and she’s going to critique each one,” DiDio said, elaborating that every artist will have one page in the first issue, with Harley’s comments written over them. He then added that it’s set in Coney Island and features Harley, “Analyzing people to death.”

Breaking down the 4th wall like Marvel’s Deadpool? No release date was announced, but we can expect to see Harley Quinn #1 later this year. Check out CBR’s exclusive interview with Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti for more info.
