Announcing today from DC Comics at their retailer meets, and part of their June mini-relaunch, will be a new Starfire series by Harley Quinn creative team Amanda Conne, Jimmy Palmiotti and Emanuela Lupacchino

A character the treatment of which has been much criticized by fans during the New 2 relaunch, now the New 52 is over as a branding exercise, could this be a chance for everyone to get what they want?

HARLEY_Cv12_R1I also talked before about plans at DC Comics to up the number of Harley Quinn titles as a result of sales success of the main series, but resisted by the Harley Quinn creative team not wanting to overcook the golden goose. Recent specials and annuals were a pragmatic solution to that demand, but after a recent guest-spot on the title, Conner and Palmiotti and Stephane Roux will now be launching a Harley Quinn/Power Girl mini-series to go alongside the Harley Quinn series.

I have been told, internally, that DC is referring to creators "Batgirling" books – that it has become an actual verb, "to Batgirl", meaning to completely transform the look and feel of a title in a very esoteric fashion, and the recent look of Catwoman is another example of that – though maybe not as extreme.

Well, expect a lot of Batgirling today…
