DC Comics is releasing a special one-shot comic book issue that features Harley Quinn invading San Diego Comic-Con. The title of the comic is called Harley Quinn Invades Comic-Con International: San Diego. Here's the description of the comic, and the adventure that Quinn will be on while at the epic geek convention:
Our favorite little troublemaker, Harley Quinn, takes on Comic-Con International: San Diego in this over the top issue! She’ll have to battle long lines, crazy crowds and the dread con crud, all in the quest to get her own comic book published!
The comic also will include Arrow star Stephen Amell. According to TV Guide, his cameo is one of many Easter eggs that will be packed into the book.
The comic was written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner and the art in it comes from various artists. Here's what Connor had to say in an interview:
"Harley and her freak show friends get a booth at Comic-Con. Harley to come along to help them out [and] wherever she goes, mayhem ensues, and that's what happens at Comic-Con. More mayhem than the usual."
Palmiotti continues saying:
"We've been going to Comic-Con for over 20 years and we tried to put in all the positive stuff. We wanted to celebrate Comic-Con rather than go after it. Because that's a whole different book altogether."
They go on to reveal that Harley herself is an amateur comic illustrator. Palimiotti explains:
"She has a comic strip that she wants to show off at the Con to see if anyone's interested in hiring her to draw it. It features a character Harley made up called Hurl Girl, a superhero whose power is to throw up."
We all know that Quinn is batshit insane, and that's why we love her. Conner had this to say about her character:
"She's out of her mind, so anything goes. There's nothing we can think up that's too crazy for Harley, and that's the best thing. We'll think of something absolutely insane and, [realize] oh yeah, we can do that with Harley."
It almost sounds like they are turning Harley Quinn into a Deadpool type character. The two would definitely make a great couple!
The comic goes on sale Wednesday, July 16th at comic book shops and will be available digitally at readdcentertainment.com and via the DC Comics app, the iBookstore, Nook Store, and Kindle Store.
