Harley Quinn is getting a new spin-off comic from DC. As reported by GamesRadar, Harley Quinn: The Animated Series – the Eat, Bang, Kill Bour is set to arrive in September. The comic will serve as a spin-off from the popular animated show. It will focus on Harley Quinn and her relationship with Poison Ivy.
Tee Franklin is set to pen the series, with Max Sarin handling the artwork. The book comes as Harley Quinn season 3 is in the works. HBO Max picked up a third season of the show last year. The first two seasons aired on DC Universe. But once WarnerMedia turned DC Universe into a digital comic book service, the show was moved to HBO Max.
Here is the synopsis for Harley Quinn: The Animated Series – The Eat, Bang, Kill Tour.
“Harley and Ivy on the road trip of the century! Following the wedding disaster of the decade, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy end up on the run from Commissioner Gordon and the GCPD! But as fun as all that sounds, Ivy still worries over leaving Kite Man at the altar… Luckily, Harley’s got the perfect scheme to shake her out of her wedding-day blues!”
Unfortunately, no artwork for the book has been revealed as of yet. However, Harley Quinn showrunner Patrick Schumacker did have some kind words about it.
I can not wait for y'all to see this book. I've seen some of Tee and Max's pages. They're hilarious and gorgeous. And the cover is Harlivylicious. https://t.co/3ewURrHc44

Here is the synopsis for the Harley Quinn animated series.
“Harley Quinn has finally broken things off once and for all with the Joker and attempts to make it on her own as the criminal Queenpin of Gotham City in this half-hour adult animated action-comedy series. The series features Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and a whole cast of heroes and villains, old and new, from the DC Universe.”
The cast for the show is headlined by Kaley Cuoco as the iconic DC character. It also includes Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Ron Funches, J.B. Smoove, Jason Alexander, Diedrich Bader and Christopher Meloni.
Given how popular the show has been, not to mention the popularity of the character of Harley Quinn in general, the notion of a spin-off comic makes sense. This is something DC does with regularity. For example, a Pennyworth comic set in the same universe as the Epix series was recently announced as well.
Harley Quinn: The Animated Series – The Eat, Bang, Kill Tour arrives September 14.
