Didn’t click on any of the spoilers but I’m definitely grabbing this tomorrow like Harley grabs Bruce, haha.
Yeah, I believe Harley was probably topless in the original art after reading the scene in
it’s entirety. Still pretty messed up scene, though, and good overall read.
Did she actually rape him or was that a failed attempt?
I was wondering the same thing, but then decided I’ll just look at the book tomorrow. I have one on order (Harley cover), but will keep an eye on the lee cover in case it defies reality and common sense and pops.
I think the art and story was edited and without seeing the original script or art, it would be hard to tell. But all the clues point to rape.
I think you’re right Anthony, they were going to rape the Batwang but did a switcheroo at the last second. lol
Could explain why it took so long for issue two to come out. They had to go back and re-edit the art and story some.
From the finished art it looked like no rape. Knowing the story behind the book and how they had to edit it (plus the dialogue), I initially think it was meant to be one.
If it was edited, then he wasn’t. I don’t think DC would have gone so far either but I do believe they likely edited some story (well, words said) and of course removed the nudity.
It leaves things to the imagination. There is clearly rape imagery being used and the fact she drugged him and then rode him with her shirt open would at least be sexual assault. Wondering if the bigger news sites picks up on it or let’s it slide
I don’t buy it though.. if Batman’s suit can be that easily penetrated by a small needle to get drugged, he would have been vulnerable long ago. 😉
Suspension of belief.
Wait till Harley announces she’s pregnant…then let the speculation on whose the daddy and what does he do?
And they go ont the Maury Povich show?
In the image, with bats’ back to the veiwer, the bat signal looks like it has (Joker) teeth in it.
There is a better image in the book where you can clearly see the Joker teeth.
anyone have a cover A of issue 1 at a good price? figured id ask here before i hit the bay
Check midtown. They had some as of last night.
Thanks Anthony! they had a bunch! much appreciated!
I don’t like it. What’s the use of having a mature label line and editing it. I’m out on Black Label. I only wish I didn’t already pre-order this issue.
