Musical_Necromancer

gonna make it to 30 issues and will relaunch in August With 2 Issues A Month

plus she's gonna be in the newly relaunched Suicide Squad also with 2 Issues A Month

Let's Not Forget She's had 2 mini's(Harley Quinn/Power-Girl And Harley Quinn&Her Gang Of Harley's)and A Team Up Series Called Harley's Little Black Book that ships once every two months

but eventually it's gonna stop right? how long will people line up for The Crazy Clown Girl before the well runs dry

Deadpool has been around and a big name for 20 years — she's Deadpool+sex, so you tell me ...

I used to like to Harley Quinn but it changed. I hate the gang of Harleys, so I quit reading it.

you know that's just a mini series right? that stuff's not gonna take up the main book much i figure(Hell Her Book Relaunches In August With 2 Issues A Month Starting with a zombie outbreak plus she's on the relaunched Suicide Squad)

Of course, that was back before all of THIS happened:

She started there, but she's pretty much her own thing now ... and she's had cutesy stuff  ::) ... in a psychotic, criminally insane kind of way ...  :idiot2:

characters costumes tend to evolve over time and Harley Quinn's Original costume doesn't lend itself well to Live Action...plus the jester costume just comes off as a bit too goofy now a days

Yes. And I tend to lose interest when they change things about a character that were part of that character's initial attraction for me. It sucks that there's no longer any room for the "comic" in comic books.  They were more entertaining when they took themselves less seriously.

I'm not saying that but if everything stayed the same we'd get bored eventually....this is a character that wasn't even meant to last and the only reason her comic book took off like it did is because they didn't stick so close to the animated series where she was nothing more than the joker's goofy sidekick

they took chances with her and obviously it paid off

I suppose I seem to imply that I'm singling the character of Harley out as an example of the bad sort of change in comics. That really isn't particularly the case, as in this specific example it's DC Comics in general that's gone off the rails. I just can't seem to enjoy any of that company's mainstream universe titles the way I once did about a decade ago. I guess Batman and Harley were really the only things left that were selling, which is why all the "rebirthing" is happening all over again -- DC's sales across the board having plunged drastically since the rebooted "New 52" of five years ago. That tends to make Harley Quinn look like more of a success than she really is, when really all we're talking about is less of a failure, in relative terms.

All of this rebooting (Marvel included) has gotten on my nerves. Because of their desire to increase sales, they keep reinventing their characters every few years or so. I'd wish they'd settle with one origin, and leave it at that...

Marvel Has Not Really Rebooted In Decades(DC Did It in 2011 but many are mistaking DC Rebirth as a reboot but it isn't)

American comic books have been rebooting to fit changing times, as well as competition from video games, ebooks, and Japanese Manga.
