Jimmy Palmiotti provides some context on the Harley Quinn script controversy:
I should have put it clearly in the description that it was supposed to be a dream sequence with Amanda and I talking to Harley and giving her a hard time. I should have also mentioned we were thinking a Mad magazine /Looney Tunes approach was what we were looking for. We thought it was obvious with the whale and chicken suit, and so on, but learned it was not.
Script controversy aside, I am glad to hear that Palmiotti and Amanda Connor intend to use the “Looney Tunes”-style Harley again.1
Instead of whatever the heck Harley has been in the New 52 up to this point. ↩
