So Who is Writing Harley Quinn Anyway? Christopher Sebela or Sam Humphries? Or Both?

Posted by March 20, 2018 Comment

The Amazon solicitation for a new Harley Quinn Vol 1 is explicit.

A new era for Harley begins here in Harley Quinn Vol. 1, as writer Sam Humphries oversees a mysterious new assassination attempt on HQ…beginning at her favorite bodega?

Harley Quinn finds herself hammer-deep in a paranoid spiral, the last thing she needs is for someone to blow up her favorite bodega! Worse, the only clue she finds seems to indicate Harley herself was the actual target of the attack! What’s a girl to do when she’s pushed all her friends away just as someone decides to kill her?

Harley Quinn’s story starts anew here in this graphic novel tale tied closer to the DC Universe! Writer Sam Humphries jumps behind the wheel, beginning with this all-new Vol. 1 jumping-on point. Collects Harley Quinn #43-49.

However, the first two issues of that volume #43 and #44, have been solicited by DC Comics, with the same text but with a different writer, thus;

HARLEY QUINN #43

And in issue #44, she’s up crazy creek without a hoagie when Harley Quinn goes full Batman to hunt down whoever made her favorite bodega go boom. But while digging her way through a twisted trail of clues, Harley discovers trouble that could mean the end of New York City…only nobody believes her!

The DC Comics solicits are the most recent and are likely to be the most accurate. But it doesn’t seem a simple credit mistake in the Amazon listing, someone specifically wrote the text ‘writer Sam Humphries oversees a mysterious new assassination attempt on HQ’ with intent.

Maybe it’s both? Christopher writing these first two issues…

With Sam to follow? Or did something odd go down?
