EXCLUSIVE: Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy Now Officially a Couple


The classic Batman series characters are out and in love in this Friday's DC Comics: Bombshells #79

Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy -- iconic villains in the Batman universe, now turned anti-heroes -- are comic-dom's newest queer couple, taking their relationship center stage in DC Comics:Bombshells comic book series. Set in an alternate reality where popular DC characters are depicted as 1940s pin-up style heroes during World War II, the DC Comics:Bombshells series explores the ladies' relationship in a brand new story arc.

The duo first became bosom buddies back in the '90s on the classic Batman: The Animated Series cartoon television show and quickly became fan favorites thanks to their flirty friendship. Their hinted-at romance continued over the years in the pages of various comic book series; a will-they-or-won't-they that continued to entice comic readers longing to see the gals become more than friends.

Fans finally got their wish in last year's Bombshells #42, when Harley and Ivy were depicted sharing a glorious on-panel liplock. At last! Now, in this Friday's weekly digital-first chapter 79, the Sapphic love of the two ladies is a key part of the ongoing storyline.

Below are some preview pages of the story. DC Comics: Bombshells #79 is out digitally tomorrow. You can download it via the DC Comics App,, iBooks,, Google Play, Kindle Store, and Nook Store.
