Incredible news folks! Coming off the amazing support and response to HARLEY QUINN AND THE BIRDS OF PREY #1, the PAPERFILMS team has been given the opportunity to design and distribute our very own VARIANT cover for HARLEY QUINN AND THE BIRDS OF PREY #2!!!
That’s right, for the next issue (coming out in just a couple of weeks), we will have our own VARIANT cover for the book. This cover is not being sold anywhere else outside of our website and team first. How awesome is that? Even cooler, there is only going to be 1000 of these covers in total printed up.
The best reason for doing this cover, the center portion of the cover is done with a non-glossed coating so individuals can have drawings and sketches done directly on the cover. Pretty awesome, right? Now you can get your favorite artist, friend, child or heck, even take a shot at your own image in the center of this amazing issue.
All orders placed for this will be shipped once the book has been released in approximately two weeks and the team has received their shipment of the variant covers (we’re waiting on them just like you folks!).
EXCLUSIVE VARIANT OPTIONS
The great bonus of doing this variant cover directly from the team is it provides us the ability to give everyone some cool options with the cover. From unsigned, to double signed to…..wait for it, limited ORIGINAL ART options from both AMANDA CONNER and JIMMY PALMIOTTI.
Both AMANDA and JIMMY will let you pick the character you want on the book’s cover to be a part of the unique design of the book. From Harley Quinn to Batman to Poison Ivy to The Pro, you decide!
So head on over to the PaperFilms Store in the PAPERFILMS EXCLUSIVE section and check out these amazing options. Some options have limited supplies so act fast!
Several retailers are getting advance preview of artwork from Amanda Conner for the upcoming Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey #1 mini-series. This book will be debuting in February, just after the movie debuts. This is going to be a high profile book under the DC Comics Black Label book. With story by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, artwork by Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts, this is sure to be a fan favorite!
This is your opportunity to see some preview pages and check out some of the wonderful feedback being pushed for the book! Be sure to tell your local comic retailer to order you a copy!!!
Below you’ll find some of the preview pages for interior art by the amazingly talented Amanda Conner!
CREATOR OWNED HEROES comes back to life in an exciting way!
The groundbreaking project from Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda
Conner and others, CREATOR OWNED HEROES, has regained life in an exciting new
way! The previously created
anthology title from Image Comics by the team has been pulled together into a
giant digital collection for everyone to enjoy!
CREATOR OWNED HEROES is an experiment Justin Gray, Steve
Niles, and myself launched and deliver monthly a few years back. COH got to
issue 8 before we had to shut the project down for lack of orders and terrible
distribution. We were losing money at an incredible speed and learned a few
lessons along the way. To this day, I get people that never heard of the series
and we figured maybe this might be a good time to do an actual collection of
all the cool material we have. What we were trying to do monthly with COH was
bring a mixture of Comics, interviews, cosplay and how to material to the comic
book lovers out there for a cheap price. Sort of like Wizard magazine with
sequential storytelling included by some of the greatest talents in the
industry. We published 8 oversized books and now for the first time we are
DIGITALLY COLLECTING all 8 issues into one huge DIGITAL 386 page read for an
insanely reasonable price!
To do this, we’re launching this project on Kickstarter. Kickstarter, we’ve run a successful 10+ campaigns so this continues to be an incredible way to reach out directly with our fans.
You can check out some of the options at Kickstarter:
NYCC has come and gone, however that doesn’t stop the excitement that was generated by the PaperFilms team of AMANDA CONNER and JIMMY PALMIOTTI as DC COMICS announced the brand new upcoming mini-series from the team of HARLEY QUINN AND THE BIRDS OF PREY under DC Comics Black Label coming in February 2020. That’s right, the team jumps back aboard the character they spent more than 110 issues writing and/or drawing to provide another adventure with Harley Quinn as she teams up with the Birds of Prey team! The story is written by Amanda and Jimmy and as an exciting bonus, Amanda will be doing the interiors and covers on the series! This is a must have adventure to all the Harley Quinn fans, followers of Amanda Conner’s amazing art and those who continuously laughed and followed the pair on the normal Harley Quinn title. With the Black Label format, the team will be able to take the filter off Harley and go wild, and that is just what she wants to do with this story!
The story will deal with the return of the Joker. This gives Harley reason to team up with Black Canary, Batgirl, and Huntress to fight off all the criminal element that starts gunning for Harley after Joker puts a $10,000,000 bounty on her head.
There has been some great quotes already in anticipation of the story from the team. Check it out:
“Conner is a master of body language, but particularly the body language of comedy. She can time and sell jokes well in a tough medium for that. That skill is a big part of what made their first go around with the character so successful, and really what’s made all of her DC projects – from Power Girl to the Wednesday Comics Supergirl story with Krypto and Streaky to the aforementioned Batman issue – so beloved.”
— Jim Dandy, Den of Geek
Perhaps one of those characters Harley will drive nuts is Conner herself. “I have her voice in my head and it’s really dug in like a tick. I don’t know if that makes me crazy because I have her voice in my head so clearly.”
— Amanda Conner (talking about the upcoming series)
Below is some great article coverage for the title (over 30 individual press release outlet coverage links below!).
