Announced at New York Comic Con 2019, Harley Quinn and The Birds of Prey serves as the official sequel to Conner and Palmiotti's bestselling run on the Clown Princess of Crimes' mainline solo series, which began in 2013. The comic is scheduled to launch this February as a part of DC Comics' Black Label imprint and will be shipped monthly.
Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey follows Harley, who finds herself in the crosshairs of Gotham's worst villains after the Joker puts a $10 million bounty on her head. In order to find out why her ex-partner has sicked this rogue's gallery on her, Harley enlists the help of Black Canary, Cassandra Cain, Renee Montoya and the Huntress.
"Jimmy and I are so looking forward to this project," said Conner. "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!"
"Amanda and I are super excited to be creating this new series for DC," added Palmiotti. "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."
"The combination of Amanda, Jimmy and Harley Quinn has always resulted in great stories for Harley fans and this series will be no exception," said DC Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras. "Their interpretation of Harley has made her a favorite of fans everywhere. Much like Batman: Last Knight on Earth or Batman/Catwoman, this miniseries is another example of great creative teams who are adding to their storytelling legacy with a memorable sequel."
Written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti and illustrated by Conner, Harley Quinn and The Birds of Prey launches February 2020 from DC Comics.
