That’s right fellow fans of fantastic fiction, hellacious hellcat Harley Quinn turned twenty five this month… which obviously means that this weeks calculatedly celebratory commemorative comic collection of ceremonially charming and cheerful covers (phew! alliteration avalanche!!) is dedicated to the mischievous minx of mayhem.

“Jeez Loweez Harley Give Us A Chance, We’re Writing The Post As Quickly As We Can!”

Welcome my comic collecting compatriots to an extra special instalment of Comic Cover Of The Week, celebrating Ms Quinn’s quarter century turn as one of the medium’s most beloved and zany characters. After (just) surviving our recent up close and personal interview (which you can read right here) with the crazy clowness of crime we would be rightfully remit if we didn’t offer up this week’s episode to our favourite psychedelic psychopath, and hoo boy do we have an awesome set of covers to share with you. Beginning, of course, with our favourite of the bunch, from astounding artistic auteur Amanda Conner:

The recurring team of Amanda Conner and her hubby and co-writer Jimmy Palmiotti kick off this quad tale anniversary special by recounting Harley’s adventures in Las Vegas alongside her Gotham Siren buddies Catwoman and Poison Ivy. Amanda not only delivers another outstanding cover image but also lends her impressive artistic talent to the tale contained within, proving once again that she is one of the most adroit and skillful creators in the wonderful world of comic book craft.

Her artwork portrays eloquently expressive characterisation, and her writing talent showcases her always exemplary comic timing, Amanda Conner is THE jewel in DC’s crown of comic book composers!

Alongside Amanda’s sterling cover are a host of other variant issues, with our next fave from DC Comics’ Co-Publisher and incredible illustrator Jim Lee:

And this magnificent masterpiece from Terry and Rachel Dodson:

‘Celebrate twenty five years of Harley Quinn with this collection of stories by some legendary Harley talent and some who have never drawn her before! How does Harley manage her insanely jam packed life on Coney Island? What haven’t we seen from her past with The Joker? And can even Harley’s psychological acumen crack the twisted mind of Robin: The Boy Wonder?
