Harley Quinn has become one of the most popular characters in DC Comics. The character has moved on from being Joker's pathetic lackey to an anti-hero in her own right. Granted, she does more good deeds than harm in her solo title but she still kills people in Suicide Squad, so DC has to work on the character's tone a wee bit.
Anyway, the point is, Harley has made it to the big time. She got here thanks to the creative efforts of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, who left the title recently. Now, Harley has a new creative team and she is going to encounter the New Gods. And it looks like she might even become a villain again, which would fix the aforementioned tonal problems.
Sam Humphries will be the character's new writer, while previous Harley Quinn artist John Timms remains on art duties, according to The Washington Post.
The pitch for this run is an interesting one, as it has Harley encounter classic New Gods villain Granny Goodness, who gives her an offer she can't refuse. Humphries is hoping to make the character more of a wild card with this run, as the anti-hero toes the line between good and evil more than before.
Humphries and Timms's run starts this July with Harley Quinn #45.
