Harley Quinn : Breaking Glass TP By Tamaki, Pugh (Aug 31st) - With just five dollars and a knapsack to her name, 15-year-old Harleen Quinzel is sent to live in Gotham City. She's not worried, though-she's battled a lot of hard situations as a kid, and knows her determination and outspokenness will carry her through life in the most dangerous city in the world. And when Gotham's finest drag queen, Mama, takes her in, it seems like Harley has finally found a place to grow into her most "true true" with new best friend Ivy at Gotham High. But when Mama's drag cabaret becomes the next victim in the wave of gentrification that's taking over the neighborhood, Harley's fortune takes another turn.

Damn, that WildCats tombstone...

The article said it was originally announced as an on-going. I dont remember it ever being said tbh. But 6 issues is too short.
He clearly stated 6 issues in his newsletter. He was rather pissed about the 'cancellation' news for Wild Storm too, considering the trade dress always indicated it was 24 issues.

Im not saying your wrong, I just said the article said it was lol.


Originally solicited as an ongoing title, Ellis said shortly after the announcement that he expected it to be six issues, followed by a Zealot title.

Ill just wait for the trade since its 6 issues, if I even read it.

I think I'm at point I prefer these imprint universe cape books. I mean YA is canon to dc but...

Wildstorm, Valiant is basically that to a bigger level but still small curated books out at time, etc.

I think I'm losing my care with ongoing cape books besides the really good runs y'all tell me about. Like invaders, hulk are fun but...

I dont even know where my mind is going with this

I haven't read much of that era but the 70s/80s Batman design popularized by the likes of Jim Apparo,Neal Addams, and Alan Davis etc is probably the best the character has looked to me. It works with both Darker solo batman stories and it pops when he's around more colorful superheroes.






Such a cool and iconic look

So the previous issue Power Girl is in her traditional red and white costume (no boob window, tho). This issue, she’s suddenly wearing this downright tasteful outfit in totally different colors. The thing even has a turtleneck! (Canary’s full coverage outfit is cool too)

Fantastic Four #12: I enjoyed for what it was, just an excuse for Slott to do a Hulk vs Thing story.
Justice League Dark Annual#1: Not sure how i feel about this one, i'll give it more chances, but this one didn't grab me at all.

I honestly wouldn't have had any idea who they were unless you told me.
I honestly had no idea that character was PG, especially since she had just appeared wearing her more traditional uniform.

The Canary look is standard for this series, although if she is in warm weather she is pantsless, and often without the jacket as well. Her outfit is an awful lot like proto-Gwenpool, actually.

I really don't like that PG outfit. So bland.

That's during the missile crisis story, right? Absolutely wildass ending.

Yeah, Joker shows up as the ambassador from Qurac for reasons in a completely recycled plot line from when he became friends with the ayatollah.

And really, if you look at that picture it’s the same person in different clothes. Same face, same hair, same boob size, really.
