Following her big debut in Harley Quinn #42, the older and crazier version of Harley Quinn from 30 years into the DC Comics future is back for more in October in her own five-issue series.
Announced by DC Comics, Frank Tieri (who wrote the issue of her debut) will return as the writer for Old Lady Harley alongside artist Mauricet for a story that dives into flashbacks that will reveal what drove Harley and Joker apart and led to Harley’s choice of seclusion.
“Think of it this way… if HARLEY QUINN #42 was your appetizer, then OLD LADY HARLEY, that’s your main course right there,” Tieri said. “Your big, fat prime rib with a fully loaded baked potato, creamed spinach with everything is covered in gravy.”
After liberating New York City from her now-feral Gang of Harleys, poor Harley wants nothing more than to slip back into retirement in her coastal (and heavily guarded) paradise. But the Laughing Boys Gang has another idea—they’ll follow her to the ends of the Earth, to drag her back to their leader! It can’t actually be…him! Right?! He couldn’t still be alive could he? After all…Harley killed him herself with her bare hands! Should she turn to President Power Girl for help! Or flee to the 51st state, Atlantis? Step into an insane version of a future DC Universe we all better hope we don’t live to see!
Old Lady Harley #1 arrives on October 24.
