I hate the fact that Jimmy and Amanda created so much hype for this issue like it was going to be one of the best issues about Harley and Ivy….What did we finally get? the same undercover that doesn’t show how real is Harley and Ivy as a romantic couple. I mean, you has to be blind to not see how much they love each other not just as “best friends in the world”.
There are real cute moments between these two characters (I’m not gonna lie, I love those moments), but the writers never accept the bond of a couple how it REALLY IS! We were able to see the acceptance of this couple in DC Bombshells and most of the people loved it and if the people accept that, I don’t see why they can’t show us beyond the flirty thing, the double meaning, puns, etc, etc..???? I make myself clear?
Don’t make hype for something that isn’t “new”.
Palmiotti and Connor: Harley Quinn hates the Joker and always has. She wants to leave her criminal life behind and become an antihero. She’s also having sex with Poison Ivy but we don’t have to say that explicitly in the comic. We’ll just make it obvious through obnoxious and gratuitous amounts of fanservice alluding to it. And Ivy is always supportive of Harley and has never done anything bad to her. Or anything at all outside of her relationship with Harley. She’s always been tied to Harley and hasn’t done much on her own. We think we’ve done a good job of representing these characters.

Poison Ivy’s back in town, and she’d like to patch up the friendship with Harley that she damaged in the Bahamas…but sadly for poor Mr. Tool, Ivy’s got some strong opinions on his courtship of Harley! And in “Harley Loves Joker” part six, Harley’s sure she’s got a foolproof plan to get back in Mistah J’s good graces, but when have Harley’s plans ever ended up the way she imagined?
