Harley Quinn #1 is out tomorrow. Red Tool appears in it, more on him in a minute, and we know he is an homage/swipe of Deadpool. But the story does more than swipe Deadpool. It swipes an entire plot element from Skrull Kill Krew #1
Way back in Fantastic Four #2 (vol. 1) Reed Richards uses his big brain on some Skrulls and turns them into cows.
In Skrull Kill Krew #1, those same cows are carted off and made into hamburger, which are eaten, and gives the towns people shape shifting powers.
The solicitation for Harley Quinn #1
Welcome back to Harley Quinn’s crazy world on Coney Island…now get ready to wave goodbye, because everyone there just might get eaten alive! Harley’s gotta protect her neighborhood against an all-out zombie apocalypse! Break out the chainsaws, everybody!
Harley Quinn #1 starts off with a girls day out….
And goes for the joke that was made here a few weeks ago…
But enough about bad Rebirth jokes and barely there water lines, here is the swipe and where the zombies in the story come from.
It all starts off with a little green man landing on a farm
He disguises himself as a cow to avoid detection….
And is carted off. (Starting to look familiar?)
Taken to the butcher shop and processed into meat…..
and eaten by the townsfolk…..
And as for Red Tool….. click for the spoiler.
