Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti Reunite On New Harley Quinn And The Birds Of Prey Mini-Series From DC Comics

by Olly MacNamee

With a new Birds of Prey movie out soon DC Comics are, of course, trying to cash in on it and what better way than with a new Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey mini-series by everyone’s favourite Harley Quinn collaborators Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti.

Scheduled to launch in February, this four-issue miniseries is a sequel to Conner and Palmiotti’s bestselling fan-favorite run that started in 2013, including the cast of crazy characters from Harley’s Coney Island crew (Harley Quinn, Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys). With Harley finally done with The Joker, she’s moving forward with her life (as only she can) until she’s beset by a rogue’s gallery of Gotham City’s worst villains, the target of a $10,000,000 bounty placed on her head by the Clown Prince of Crime. It will take the help of Black Canary, Cassandra Cain (a.k.a. Batgirl), Renee Montoya, and the Huntress to help Harley and get to the bottom of why The Joker has turned Gotham’s worst loose on her.

Of course, both Conner and Palmiotti are excited about this new project, with Amanda stating:

Jimmy and I are so looking forward to this project. I’m excited to be co-writing it, but it’s been some time since I’ve been able to draw interiors, so I’m doubly excited. Harley is a blast to write and draw; throw the Birds of Prey into the mix and it’s even more fun. And since this will be a mature readers title, we’ll do our best to get away with as many shenanigans as possible!

Of course, Jimmy had something to say too:

Amanda and I are super excited to be creating this new series for DC. We’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to let loose on a project with a no-holds-barred Harley story where we revisit Harley’s supporting cast and take her on an adventure back to Gotham. Teaming up with the Birds of Prey, Harley will turn all their worlds upside down—exactly how she likes it. Working with Amanda on the art and storytelling has been a blast so far and this book will be like nothing we have ever done before.

Harley Quinn and The Birds of Prey is a 32-page, four-issue miniseries dropping in comic book stores sometime in February 2020. When we hear of exact due date, we’ll let you all know.
