Definitely sporting my least favorite of the various costume redesigns would be Harley Quinn with her little ensemble here. (Emphasis on the “little.”) It looks kind of cool if she was going undercover for a quick little sequence or something but I’m going to miss her classic costume if this one becomes the status quo. (Which seems to be the plan for now.) I’ve got no objections to a sexy or revealing (or even impractical) costume when it fits the character. But Harley has always been more about zany rather than sexy.
Now, costume aside, I could get behind reading more about these characters and this concept but it kind of feels like the book we’re getting instead of “Secret Six” and I’d just rather have “Secret Six.” It feels like there’s stuff here that I should want and that I probably will want but that I just don’t really want. My initial reaction was YAY HARLEY!, even with the costume change, because I seriously do love that twisted, messed up and fun/sad character. I think I’m just approaching this one with some hesitance because it just has a lot to live up to.
You can’t give me half of the occasionally-members-of-Secret-Six on one team and then not expect me to hold it up to one of my favorite comics in comparison. I do intend to give it a chance. It’s the Suicide Squad team/concept with one of my favorite comic book characters. I want to see if it winds up being good and I am definitely hoping for the best. It just has big, awesome, fucked up, brilliant shoes to fill and every issue Catman’s not present and naked in will definitely be a strike against it.
But, yes, I am getting it starting in September. How long I get it after that is entirely dependent on quality.
