Amanda Conner And Jimmy Palmiotti To Launch New ‘Harley Quinn’ Ongoing [SDCC 2013]

Harley Quinn has gotten a considerable amount of face time in the New 52 as the most-recognizable member of the Suicide Squad, but one title simply couldn’t contain her. So she’ll be getting her own book later this year, written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, the wife-and-husband team who previously collaborated on 2009′s Power Girl series. Conner will be handling art duties for the covers, with a not-yet-named artist on interiors.

In an interview with CBR, Palmiotti said the series will build on Harley’s “background, motivations and her home and supporting cast.”  He added, “Sort of what we did with Power Girl but with a mix of a bit more homicidal maniac added in.”

In regards to Harley’s often-discussed costume, which went from a fairly conservative Harlequin costume to far more revealing outfits in the Arkham video games and Suicide Squad, Conner said she wants to keep things pretty realistic in the solo book:

I am trying to incorporate my favorite things about her latest look and her early costume. I was also inspired by some roller derby girls that I met a short time ago. I think that look totally works for Harley. Another thing I try to keep in mind is what would work really well for costumers and cosplayers, and what would be fun for them to create.

There’s no hard release date for the title’s first issue just yet, but look out for it to hit shelves before 2013 is up.
