It’s been over a year since the Season 2 finale of Harley Quinn, the adult animated series, and a lot has happened since. For one, DC Universe, the streaming platform the show originally aired on for its first two seasons, no longer exists in that form. So for a bit of time there, fans were worried that the show wouldn’t get renewed for a third season. But it did, and now they’re just waiting for it to drop.
But in the meantime, if you’re tired of rewatching the same 26 episodes — although, you might not be because they’re hilarious — there are new comic books coming out all about Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy’s time right after Ivy’s disastrous wedding.

But to hold you over, the comic book run Harley Quinn: The Eat. Bang! Kill. Tour just came out and it follows Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy on their felon road trip after escaping Gotham. It’s written by Tee Franklin and drawn by Max Sarin, with the first issue out Sept. 14 according to Syfy Wire. Issue #2 is also already available to read digitally, but the physical copy comes out Oct. 12.
So what can fans expect from the comic book run? It’s set to be six issues long and so far each issue has a variant cover like a lot of comic books do. The artwork isn’t the same as the series, but it’s sort of similar. Even so, it’s still gorgeous and fits the vibe the show and those characters within that world gave off.
