One of DC Comics’ biggest breakout stars gets her own solo art tome with Insight Editions and Andrew Farago’s upcoming The Art of Harley Quinn.
Hey there Mista Jay
She’s come a long, long way since Batman: The Animated Series. Still, I instantly think of what’s perhaps Harley Quinn’s most iconic look whenever I see her name mentioned. She’s a striking character though, and one that always manages to have a visual flair.
Originally Joker’s gal (and sorta sidekick) on the animated show, Harley quickly made the jump to the DCU proper. And she hasn’t looked back. Created by Paul Dini for the show and its accompanying comic, Harley has gone back and forth a bit between hero and villain. She’s much more the former than the latter in DC’s Rebirth era. Though, you never know, that could always change.
Her look is another constantly changing element. And as you might imagine, the various states of Harley Quinn could make for a pretty cool art book. That’s what (I assume) Insight Editions thought.
The publisher and author Andrew Farago have a slick looking book on the horizon – and it’s dedicated to ol’ Harl herself. The volume will include a look at her complete history in comics. That’s more than a decade of art in total, by the way.
You’ll also get a forward by her creator, Dini himself, and a special cover crafted by Harley Quinn artist Amanda Conner. All together, the book is being billed as “the ultimate visual guide to one of the most beloved DC Super-Villains in comic book history”.
Expect it just in time for the holidays, as it’ll be on the shelves this November. The Art of Harley Quinn will run you $45 USD.
