Later this year, the married couple and creative duo that brought us the pre-New 52 Power Girl series are getting their hands on another female DC character. Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti will be starting an ongoing Harley Quinn monthly series in late 2013. Unlike Power Girl, though, Conner and Palmiotti will be co-writing this series.
Comic Book Resources has an exclusive first look at the cover for the first issue, drawn by Conner, as well as an interview with the pair. You can find the full article here, and their exclusive cover below along with a snippet from the interview:
Palmiotti: We took a good long look at the New 52 version and then applied it to what we were going to do in the series. Harley is a complex character and we are going to build on her background, motivations and her home and supporting cast. Sort of what we did with Powergirl but with a mix of a bit more homicidal maniac added in.
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.
