Batman and Harley Quinn will premiere in only a few weeks, but for those who want more of this duo, we have good news.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, DC will launch two ‘Batman/Harley Quinn’ digital comic series that will tie-in with the animated movie. One of them will be serving as a prequel and the other one is set to be the sequel.
The prequel, titled Harley Quinn and Batman, is being written by Ty Templeton and illustrated by Rick Burchett (both of them had previously worked together in the comic book based on the Batman animated series from the 90s) and will consist in a five-part series leading up to events in the animated movie. This series is set to launch on July 31 with new episodes released every two weeks thereafter.
The sequel, titled Batman and Harley Quinn, will arrive in October as a weekly seven-part series. Templeton will also be a creator in this, but here he’ll be working alongside writer Jeff Parker (Batman ’66), Amanda Delbert (Wonder Woman ’77’s) and artists Sandy Jarrell (Archie’s Reggie & Me, DC’s Bombshells) and Matthew Dow Smith (IDW’s X-Files: Origins and Doctor Who).
Later on, in summer 2018, all 12 chapters will be released as a print collection, for those who prefer their comic books in physical form.
