DC Comics revealed Harley Quinn will take over Batman Day in September.

At an al fresco breakfast panel at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina Hotel during Comic-Con 2017,  DC Comics announced new plans for some of their title characters.

Harley Quinn, the Joker’s girlfriend, has become one of DC’s more popular characters. To celebrate Harley Quinn’s 25th anniversary, co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan Didio, announced new story lines in store for Quinn. The new graphic novels will be supervised by the husband-and-wife team writer Jimmy Palmiotti and artist Amanda Conner. The upcoming titles will have Quinn running for Mayor of New York City, and will be released during the mayoral election in the fall.

DC Comics also told us that the mischievous Harleen Quinnzel will be taking over Batman Day this year. To continue the year of the super heroine, September 23rd will be Harley Quinn Day. This celebration will include a special issue to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the comic book character.

Paul Dini, Quinn’s creator, shared one of the more unusual parings lined up for comic releases. We will see Archie Comics coming into the superhero fold.  Riverdale and Gotham will meet at a cross roads in the world of comics with Harley Quinn joining Betty and Veronica in the future.

In another twist for DC superhero Batman, Joelle Jones gave us the first look into her newest cover. All I can tell you, until Batman #33 is released, is that the image is stunning in more ways than one!

There you have it, folks. Comic-Con 2017 delivers again…and we bring this news to you directly from the horses mouth.
