New Comic Book Day Picks by Blake Northcott

It’s been a rough week for fangirls and guys around the world: Han Solo broke his leg, possibly delaying the new Star Wars film. It is now a whopping 279 days until the next new episode of Game of Thrones (not that I’m counting). And to rub salt in our collective wounds, a new trailer for Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is circulating, which replaces our childhood icons with duck-lipped, CGI creations that look nothing like they did in their previous movies. And that’s just Megan Fox – the Turtles look even weirder.

But fear not, gentle reader – I come bearing glad tidings. This #NCBD is a veritable cornucopia of comic book riches, just waiting to be consumed by your eager eyeballs.

So dig into my top 3 picks of the week below, and then check out my new “rewind” section, where I tell you about a couple books you might’ve missed from last week.

Harley Quinn #1 Cover Preview

This week marks the release of Harley Quinn #1, an ongoing series featuring the titular star from DC Comics as part of The New 52. While Harley is currently part of two team books already – Suicide Squad and Injustice: Gods Among Us – her solo book will focus on her new life as a resident of New York City and the day-to-day escapades she finds herself in.

The series is being written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner (Conner will also provide the cover art) and features art by newcomer Chad Hardin. In an interview with USA Today, Conner noted that “even though it’s still fairly early, it is beginning to look like Looney Tunes meets a Quentin Tarantino movie” which sounds quite promising for those who are a fan of Ms. Quinzel.

Check out a preview here below of Harley Quinn #1.

Comics Artist Lea Hernandez Tackles DC’s Controversial ‘Naked Harley Quinn With A Toaster’

Lea Hernadez's Naked Harley with Toaster

The wonderful comics artist Lea Hernandez (Killer Princesses, Cathedral Child) dropped her interpretation of “Naked Harley Quinn A With Toaster,” based on DC Comics’ controversial new art contest, onto the Internet via her Twitter on Sunday.

See Hernandez’s four panels of greatness here after the jump.

First, a little back story. DC Comics is holding an Open Talent Search artist contest where the winner would get to draw one page in Harley Quinn #0, the launch of the publisher’s new series by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. The tryout script asks for all new potential artists to draw the Joker’s favorite squeeze, Harley Quinn, on one script page in four different panels acting out four different scenarios. The last panel of that page asks for Harley Quinn to be naked in a bathtub trying to kill herself with a toaster. No, really.

Jim Lee Weighs In On DC’s Controversial ‘Harley Quinn’ Artist Tryout Script

Harley Quinn #0 banner

Jim Lee, Co-Publisher of DC Comics, took to his Twitter tonight to publicly air his thoughts regarding the controversy surrounding the popular comics publisher’s current Open Talent Search artist contest, which was met with some backlash from those feeling that it was sexist and disrespectful to women.

The contest guidelines, which ran on DC’s website under the headline “Break into comics with Harley Quinn,” requires entrants to draw four panels featuring the DC female villain Harley Quinn attempting to commit suicide because of outlandish situations the DC writers put her in. The contest winner would then get to draw one page of DC’s Harley Quinn #0 by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner to be released this November.

DC’s panel descriptions, which include showing Harley Quinn naked in a bathtub surrounded by hanging electronics preparing to launch another suicide attempt, prompted public outcry accusing DC of being sexist towards women and insensitive about suicide (you can read of this over at The Daily Dot). The general interest women’s website Jezebel, which is part of Gawker Media, felt that DC’s contest was “disturbing” and “showcases DC’s blatant disregard for women.” This issue comes on the heels of another recent controversy for the publisher, who were accused of being homophobic for not letting Batwoman marry her same-sex partner, which prompted Batwoman‘s creative team of J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman to leave the title.

Since Twitter is not exactly the premiere platform for discussing delicate, polarizing subjects, we’ve compiled all of Lee’s tweets and photos all together here below. The end includes the sneak peek of Superman Unchained that Lee sent as his final tweet.

Catwoman and Two-Face by Xero

All right, so you guys know I like Batman, right? That’s not really a secret that I’m trying to hide. Another thing that I don’t really like to hide is cool art related to the character. And Austin, TX-based artist Xero has come to the task of putting together a pretty rad group of art prints of some of the best of Batman’s rogues gallery.

In a collection that the artist calls “Gotham’s Most Wanted,” Xero takes his/her own style on various villains on the caped vigilante. In this set we see Xero’s unique perspective on the heavy hitters such as Catwoman, Scarecrow, Two-Face, Killer Croc, Poison Ivy and, of course, The Joker.
