A spin-off to the event of HARLEY QUINN #42, DC announces a new mini-series, OLD LADY HARLEY with Harley where she’s 30 years older. She’s older, wiser, and, If you can imagine, crazier. Frank Tieri (Wolverine, Deadpool, Batman and The Outsiders) pens the series along with art from Mauricet (Harley Quinn, Dastardly & Muttley).
“Think of it this way… if HARLEY QUINN #42 was your appetizer, then OLD LADY HARLEY, that’s your main course right there,” said writer Frank Tieri. “Your big, fat prime rib with a fully loaded baked potato, creamed spinach with everything is covered in gravy.” This five-issue mini-series offers a deeper dive into why Harley left “and through flashbacks we’ll see what went on between Harley and the Joker and how it drove her into seclusion.”
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!
If you want to learn more about the future of Harley and her misadventures with and without Joker, you should pick this up. You can get your copy of the first issue of this mini-series on Wednesday, October 24 at your local comic shop or at your favorite online outlet.
