It’s the jumpsuit that started it all. We’ve been hearing rumors that Harley Quinn’s classic jester outfit had been made for the Suicide Squad film, but we didn’t know whether they actually used it. Well, B-roll footage released at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday has given us the answer, and it’s a resounding “Hell…
For the past few years, DC Collectibles has released a “Gotham City Garage” range of statues, redesigns of DC’s female heroes and villains by Dustin Nguyen that re-imagined them as tattooed bikers. Now high-end doll maker Tonner is getting its hands on the designs, and basically turning them into Biker Barbies.
Warner Bros. and DC are putting a lot of faith in the release of Suicide Squad later this year—apparently to the point that it’s breaking out Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn to star in her own movie.
Usually, when it comes to comics adapting elements from comic book movies, it’s on Marvel Comic’s end—but for once, this one is a DC joint, and it’s happening way before the movie in question is out.
Harley Quinn has had a lot of different looks since her first debut in Batman: The Animated Series, but what she wears in Suicide Squad is very different from anything we’ve seen Harley in before. That wasn’t always going to be the case, according to Margot Robbie—in fact, her classic costume nearly made it into the…
Harley Quinn’s current ongoing series has been all about Harley moving on from her past life with the Joker, and finding her own identity. Today’s issue made that struggle a very literal one—and it had an immensely satisfying resolution.
After missing out on a nomination last year for the first time since 2003, DC Comics has two series up for the GLAAD Media Awards. The excellent Midnighter and Harley Quinn join Lumberjanes, Angela: Queen of Hel, and The Wicked + The Divine in the Outsanding Comic Books category for their portrayal of LGBT characters.
Melissa Rosenberg just helped redefine what we expect from superheroes on screen with the new Jessica Jones Netflix series. But let’s not forget her previous foray into superheroics: the 2002-2003 Birds of Prey TV show, which featured a ridiculously creepy Harley Quinn.
The other day, comic-book fans got an amazing piece of news: the beloved Y the Last Man is not going to be shoehorned into movie form, but will get to live and breathe as a TV show. Even though comics rule movies these days, some of them are just too big for a two-hour package.
Greetings, my pernicious pen partners! I actually had thought that I’d be able to have a “Postal Apocalypse” last week during Comic-Con. Comic-Con had other plans that involved me working 14-hour days and sobbing hysterically at my desk, begging for the sweet release of death. But I’m better now! So on with your…
We braved the Comic-Con crush around the awesome DC costume display to talk to the trio behind one of DC Comics’ most exciting series today: Harley Quinn. Artist-writer Amanda Conner; her husband, writer Jimmy Palmiotti; and artist Chad Hardin answered all of our burning questions.
It’s not like we’ve known this for a while, but Bruce Timm’s return to DC animation, Justice League: Gods and Monsters, wastes no time in getting down to the grim and gritty. See it in action in this first episode from the prequel web series, as new Batman, Kirk Langstrom, hunts down a psychotic Harley Quinn.
En la serie Arrow pudimos ver de una forma muy breve la aparición de uno de los villanos más conocidos en el universo de DC Comics, Harley Quinn, y habría grandes planes para ella, los cuales han tenido que cancelar por culpa de una película: Suicide Squad.
Yesterday, I read a rather excellent article over a Comics Alliance titled “Smart, Nice and Sassy: ‘Good Girl’ Role Models Make Boring Heroes.” The central thesis of the article was that, yes, we’re getting more great female characters in comics these days, but is it possible they’re a little too great? More…
The harlequin suit is out, and the skirts are in, as Play Arts Kai’s Arkham Knight turns its attention away from cape-swooshing Batmen and introduces Harley Quinn’s latest look. And it seems like Square-Enix have also managed to put the plastic in “plastic surgery” a bit literally while they’re at it, too.
In a industry of endless variant figures, I was honestly kind of surprised that Harleen Quinzel, the Psychiatrist that becomes Harley Quinn, has never had an action figure before — and yet, 23 years after her début, here we are: the toy for people who prefer craziness in a lab coat rather than a harlequin’s outfit.
The path of comic book characters making their way onto the big and small screens is a well trod one. But what about the reverse, of characters who started out on-screen and then made their way into the comics? Here are the best comic book characters who got their start somewhere else.
