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.
