I was a huge fan of the Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti run on the Harley Quinn comic a few years ago. I haven’t been following Harley’s story since then, so I don’t know what she’s been up to. But now we know that Conner and Palmiotti are coming back to the character for a new Black Label mini-series next year, teaming up Harley with her Birds of Prey movie co-stars!
Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey comes out in February!
The most exciting news of all is that Conner will be doing interior art! That’s all I ever wanted for her original run on Harley Quinn. Conner is one of my all-time favorite comic book artists, and having her do interiors will be a dream come true.
I am legit excited about this comic and I hope you are too!
For some reason, DC and Warner Bros. have decided to call the Harley Quinn movie Birds of Prey. There’s also a subtitle of “and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn”. Honestly, I kind of like that long title. But based on this first full trailer, the movie probably should have just been called “Harley Quinn”.
I couldn’t even tell you who anyone else is in this trailer. I think Huntress is the one with the crossbow, and I think that’s Black Canary at the microphone, but I’ve got no clue much of anyone else. Ewan MacGregor is playing Black Mask, but the movie doesn’t tell me that.
It’s still a solid trailer, showing off Harley Quinn in all her wacky glory. Her style is a little too tacky for my tastes, but that’s probably the point. I think this movie has a chance to do some real good.
Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn comes out on Feb. 7.
Comic-Con gave us a bigger, better and more awesome trailer for the upcoming Harley Quinn cartoon, and it looks phenomenal!
This show looks cool on levels I didn’t even expect. I’m loving the voices. I’m loving the bits of humor we get. I’m loving the Kite Man cameo. I especially love the hint we get at a Harley/Poison Ivy relationship. It’s 2019, they damn well better go full speed ahead into that whole awesomeness.
The show is coming to the DC streaming service later this year, I think.
Last week was a wasteland of new comics I like to read, and this week drops a bunch! How do you like them apples, eh? Suffice to say, I had a lot to read and enjoy this week.
Action Comics and Wonder Woman are both enjoyable out of DC, and my opinion starts to change for the better on Heroes in Crisis. Then we’ve got Marvel dropping a solid Ms. Marvel and West Coast Avengers. But the real standout, a true gem of a comic, is the new issue of Unstoppable Wasp. This is a rare game-changer of an issue and easily wins Comic Book of the Week.
Could be a standout for Comic Book of the Year.
Meanwhile, I read the Alpha issue for Age of X-Man and it looks fine. Pretty bare bones, with more than a few obvious glitches in the manufactured reality. I still haven’t decided how I’ll cover the event. I’m not about to buy and read every single issue…but maybe I won’t buy or review any of them. All I know for sure is that I’m excited to see what Leah Williams does with the Blob.
Comic Reviews: Action Comics #1007, Captain America #7, Heroes in Crisis #5, Ms. Marvel #37, Unstoppable Wasp #4, West Coast Avengers #7 and Wonder Woman #63.
It’s hard to tell what exactly is happening with DC Comics movies. But another solid sign that stuff is indeed getting made is this quickie teaser trailer for Birds of Prey, the Harley Quinn follow-up movie. I am 100% in favor of doing a series of movies focusing on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. That’s solid moviemaking right there!
Those are our first glimpses at Huntress, Black Canary, Cassandra Cain, Black Mask and Zsasz, and they look good. Let us get our hopes up about Birds of Prey!
And hopefully we’ll get a Harley Quinn/Poison Ivy movie down the line!
