Everyone gets older, even superheroes. Joining the old crowd – Old Man Logan and Old Man Hawkeye – we’re now getting Old Lady Harley, who will appear in Harley Quinn #42.
Yes even the avatar of youthful spunk Harley Quinn can become a cranky old lady. BUt she’ll do it with style.
Writer Frank Tieri shared a bunch of Mauricet’s art with us, and character sketches of Old Harley and her buddy Red Tool.
Is this a one off? Editor Chris Conroy tweeted that they could do more if its popular:
We're going a little insane on HARLEY QUINN #42 (my last regular-numbering issue as editor, sniffle). "Old Lady Harley" is gonna be ridiculous, and we hope you like it. (Cuz we wanna do more.) https://t.co/rdNJhZG3h8
