Harley Quinn's Origin Reimagined in DC Black Label's Harleen

Harley Quinn is getting a DC Black Label makeover. In Harleen, Stjepan Šejić will reimagine Dr. Harleen Quinzel and the path that led her into the arms of the Joker across three oversized issues.

According to the series description,

Dr. Harleen Quinzel has discovered a revolutionary cure for the madness of Gotham City -- she just needs to prove it actually works. Through her studies of the criminals and sociopaths that pass through the halls of Arkham Asylum and the GCPD, Harleen is seeking to end the growing apathy among the citizens of Gotham. But with the criminal justice and mental health establishments united against her, the brilliant young psychologist must take drastic measures to save Gotham from itself.

Following an attack on the city by the villainous Joker, Harleen will come face-to-face with one of the many criminals she hopes to heal -- but she will soon find herself drawn into the madness and insanity that plagues him. Witness Harleen’s first steps on a doomed quest that will launch the legendary super-villain Harley Quinn in this stunning reimagining of Harley and the Joker’s twisted and tragic love affair.

"Harleen is a story of a flawed person who meant well, a doctor who fell in love with her patient," Šejić said in a statement. "It is a story of her road to hell -- paved with good intentions -- and a smile that cost her her soul. More than anything it is a tale about good people falling. Falling in love, falling from grace, and falling apart."

Starting September 25, Šejić's Harleen miniseries will release monthly with three oversize issues in large-print format. A collection will go on sale in Spring 2020.
