Okay, yes that is a sensationalized headline but it’s also accurate. DC comics has announced that they are opening up a talent search to have someone draw a page of Harley Quinn #0 along side Amanda Conner, Paul Pope, Bruce Timm and more. The new series being written by Jimmy Palmiotti and his new wife Conner begins this November and they are looking for an undiscovered talent to join them for a single page. Entries can be just pencils, pencils and inks or even pencilled, inked and colored but you must keep in mind that whatever you do on the page is going to be judged on a professional level so only do what you are really good at.
Judges for the contest will be Jim Lee and Dan Didio and all the details are available here.
As for the Harley Quinn nude part, here is the script they want you to work from.
Harley is on top of a building, holding a large DETACHED cellphone tower in her hands as lightning is striking just about everywhere except her tower. She is looking at us like she cannot believe what she is doing. Beside herself. Not happy.
Harley is sitting in an alligator pond, on a little island with a suit of raw chicken on, rolling her eyes like once again, she cannot believe where she has found herself. We see the alligators ignoring her.
Harley is sitting in an open whale mouth, tickling the inside of the whale’s mouth with a feather. She is ecstatic and happy, like this is the most fun ever.
Harley sitting naked in a bathtub with toasters, blow dryers, blenders, appliances all dangling above the bathtub and she has a cord that will release them all. We are watching the moment before the inevitable death. Her expression is one of “oh well, guess that’s it for me” and she has resigned herself to the moment that is going to happen.
