Over the past few years, Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti have carved out their own little corner of the DC Universe and filled it with some of its weirdest antics and strangest characters. The writing team has been responsible for shepherding Harley Quinn through her most popular years in pop culture, and will soon take on the duties of re-inventing The Jetsons for a modern age.

ComicsAlliance caught up with the team, who are also a married couple, to talk about their approach to Harley, their luck with artistic collaborators, and translating millennial fears to a hopeful post-apocalypse.

Today, Hollywood continued its mission to take every thinkable approach to the superhero genre with the arrival of what has felt like an inevitability for some time now. We’ve moved into superhero comedy, superhero Westerns, and whatever Doctor Strange was — the final frontier for big studio tentpoles is... a genre that will make you see the phrase “big studio tentpoles” in an entirely new light.

Kamandi Skips The Con, But Still Has A Weird Time In San Diego In ‘The Kamandi Challenge’ #3 [Exclusive]

Kamandi Challenge #3, DC Comics

So far, DC's Kamandi Challenge --- a bizarre experiment in Exquisite Corpse storytelling about the Last Boy on Earth and his journey across Jack Kirby's map of a post-apocalyptic earth --- has been a hoot. The mix of high-concept action and the genuine uncertainty of having no idea where this story is going is something that you don't often get in comics, and as much as I thought it was a weird idea, it's always the first thing I read on the Wednesdays where it hits shelves.

But sadly, the third issue has dashed my hopes for Kamandi's trip to a post-apocalyptic San Diego Comic-Con. Instead, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, and Paul Mounts are going in a bit of a different direction. Check out a preview below!

‘Joker Loves Harley’ Comes To An Explosive End In ‘Harley Quinn’ #13 [Exclusive Preview]

Harley Quinn #13, DC Comics

I don't want to blow anyone's mind here, but I have the sneaking suspicion that the Joker who's been hanging around in the pages of Harley Quinn for the past few issues claiming that he's changed and wants to apologize to her for years of abuse isn't quite what he seems.

Regardless, he's been trying to get some facetime with Harley for the last three issues, and in next week's Harley Quinn #13 by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, and John Timms, he's finally going to get a little more than he bargained for. Check out a preview below!
