Well I know this posting is gonna offend some of you out there who have more delicate sensibilities. I don't know what to tell ya other then when I stumbled across this illustration I felt anything but offended. I'm a guy, this is my blog, Ivy was part of the Squad in the first series and Harley is gonna be part of the Squad in the new series, nuff said. Well who ever out there did this illustration thank you and please let us know who you are if you come across this posting.
As you all know it appears as if Harley is ditching her classic skin tight "jester" like costume in favor of something more punk rock looking. From what I'm seeing out there it seems there are some people taking issue with this for what ever reason. Little did I know since I'm not a gamer this look was already being used for the Batman: Arkham Asylum video game. And for some reason it didn't hit me until I saw the video game looking Harley that she totally reminded me of Daryl Hannah as Priss from Blade Runner which is the best all time dystopia sci-fi film of all time with Children of Men being a close second. That alone should prompt someone to being very receptive to the costume switch. Aside from the white face paint and messy mascara eyes Hannah had that whole playful, sexy psycho thing going on. Now that's got me wondering if the Typhoid Mary character from Marvel was also inspired by Daryl Hannah from Blade Runner. And what about Chiana (Gigi Edgely) from Farscape? Ya see folks that look just works for hot psycho femme fatales you don't wanna mess with.
