Yesterday, Bleeding Cool Rumormonger-In-Chief Rich Johnston put his famed corpse mutilation skills to good use Frankensteining the DC Comics April solicitations. While the solicit for April’s Harley Quinn #17 noted that fan-beloved writer and Harley Quinn co-creator Paul Dini would be writing a backup story for the book, it was overshadowed by more salacious news like the apparent line-wide adoption of a $3.99 price point. However, a DC publicist took to Twitter this weekend to reveal that Dini, along with regular series writer Jimmy Palmiotti, would be providing the ongoing stories on a regular basis.

It was unclear whether Brett Blevins, listed as the artist on the backup story in Harley Quinn #17, will also be the artist on an ongoing basis, so we asked for clarification:

And Palmiotti, presumably fearing what ridiculous thing we might make up, responded with an apprehensive:

There was no need to worry, Jimmy. Everyone just read Dini’s name in the headline and started celebrating immediately anyway, so it wouldn’t have mattered what we said here.

 

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
