Harleen Makes the New York Times Best Sellers List!
The New York Times has released its March 15 list of best-selling books and DC is proud to announce that Harleen has made the prestigious New York Times best-seller list in the Graphic Books and Manga category.
Described by CBR as “A haunting modernization of a classic tale…” and AiPT.com praising the series as “…a masterpiece of a Harley Quinn Story” this hardcover collects writer/artist Stjepan Šejić’s three issue series, re-imagining Dr. Harleen Quinzel’s descent into madness and transformation into Harley Quinn, including her seductively dangerous romance with The Joker.
The collected edition also includes a variant cover gallery, a graphic timeline of the making of Harleen, and a look at the original script outline alongside the corresponding pages. Harleen carries DC’s Black Label content descriptor (for mature readers Ages 17+) and is available everywhere books are sold for $29.99.
This is awesome news and DC Comics and Stjepan Šejić should be proud! Hopefully this inspires more unique and groundbreaking stories in the future.
