SDCC: Harley Quinn’s Artist

At DC Comics‘ Meet the Co-Publisher’s panel, Dan Didio and Jim Lee revealed the artist (sort of) for the new Harley Quinn title, launching later this year and being co-written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner.

It turns out that the first issue, which may be #0, will feature 18 different artists, each drawing a single page. Harley will apparently break the fourth wall — as her beau the Joker has been known to do from time to time — to critique each artist’s work. Didio mentioned that Conner and Palmiotti are hoping to get one of those pages from his co-publisher Jim Lee. Lee responded that they should open up one page for a newcomer to the industry.

Presumably, the series’ main artist will be one of the those featured in the first issue, although, considering that this is Harley we’re talking about, the permanent artist could easily be a wild card. We’ll let you know as soon as the ongoing artist is announced.

Update: Shortly after this announcement, DC Publicity Director Alex Segura tweeted that one of those artist would be be the one and only Adam Hughes (FairestBefore Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan).

Zac Boone would be fine with Amanda Conner drawing the whole series. Follow him on twitter.
