Harley Quinn has risen in popularity since her introduction on Batman: The Animated Series. She’s already one of the main characters in one of the upcoming DC Black Label books, Joker / Harley: Criminal Sanity. The imprint is doubling down on her with Harleen, a three-issue limited series from writer / artist Stjepan Šejic debuting in September.

Dr. Harleen Quinzel has discovered a revolutionary cure for the madness of Gotham City—she just needs to prove it actually works. Through her studies of the criminals and sociopaths that pass through the halls of Arkham Asylum and the GCPD, Harleen is seeking to end the growing apathy among the citizens of Gotham. But with the criminal justice and mental health establishments united against her, the brilliant young psychologist must take drastic measures to save Gotham from itself.

Following an attack on the city by the villainous Joker, Harleen will come face-to-face with one of the many criminals she hopes to heal—but she will soon find herself drawn into the madness and insanity that plagues him. Witness Harleen’s first steps on a doomed quest that will launch the legendary super-villain Harley Quinn in this stunning reimagining of Harley and the Joker’s twisted and tragic love affair.

Harleen is a story of a flawed person who meant well, a doctor who fell in love with her patient,” says Šeji?. “It is a story of her road to hell—paved with good intentions—and a smile that cost her her soul. More than anything it is a tale about good people falling. Falling in love, falling from grace, and falling apart.”

I’m kind of over the Joker / Harley relationship as I think she’s a better character having moved on from the abuse she suffered at the hands of the Clown Prince of Crime, but there’s enough in here that I’m interested in where this series could go. Harleen #1 is set for release on September 25th, 2019 in oversize issues in large-print format. A collection will be released in Spring 2020.
