DC Comics will be sending Harley Quinn off to Apokolips to meet up with Granny Goodness and the Female Furies.
The new story will kick off in Harley Quinn #45 with a brand new creative team that includes writer Sam Humphries and artist John Timms.
“The biggest question, and the biggest challenge for Harley, is defining if she’s a hero or a villain,” says Humphries on his new assignment. “But why can’t she be both? Or is there a third choice to explore? My vision for the book is ‘What if Bugs Bunny were a chainsaw, hosting Anthony Bourdain’s show, but in the DC Universe?’ In our first three-issue story arc, John Timms and I are going to bring the crazy Kirby Krackle to HARLEY QUINN—focusing on the manic energy that made us cheer for her and the tragic emotions that made us fall in love with her.”
While Harley might be destined to meet up with Granny Goodness and the Female Furies, she’s not going willingly. Granny Goodness actually sends two of the Female Furies to kidnap Harley Quinn and bring her back to Apokolips. Once Harley arrives on Apokolips, Granny Goodness offers her a deal she can’t refuse. Harley will join the Furies, but it’s much more than that she will also gain superpowers and do whatever she pleases. But there is a catch. Harley must hunt down a rogue Fury.
“Harley Quinn does and says the things we all wish we could get away with,” continues Humphries. “She’s the embodiment of wish fulfillment. Harley is a wild card, and she’s a survivor; two things we all want to be at different times of the day. And Apokolips is just the beginning of our plans for Harley. No one in the DCU will be safe from Harley Quinn.”
Harley Quinn #45 will feature a cover by Guillem March and Romulo Fajardo Jr. as well as a variant cover by Frank Cho. The book is expected to hit shelves on July 4, 2018.
