DC Comics’ Harley Quinn Annual #1 will be a “rub’n’smell” comic book that will feature a number of unique scents that relate to the story. DC will come out with an edition of the comic that’s meant for U.S. readers, and a second edition that will be exported outside of the country. The US edition will feature smells such as leather, suntan lotion, pizza and what’s referred to in the story as “cannabisylocibe 7-A.”

Hmmm, I wonder that cannabisylocibe is supposed to be?

DC’s move to create a second edition for overseas markets makes a bit more sense now considering that last scent, as it might be rather difficult to export a comic that smells vaguely of weed. The international edition will replace the cannabis scent with the smell of fresh-cut lawn clippings.

Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post illustrations are iconic and instantly recognizable. Many artists have taken the style and put different characters into the idyllic scenes, including Ruiz Burgos. He’s inserted heroes and villains from the pages of DC Comics into the art, and the series of mash-ups features Zatanna, Poison Ivy, Joker and Harley Quinn, and more.

More of the lovely art after the break.

The Arkham Asylum game isn’t known for featuring cutesy character designs, but Funko has a knack for changing that. One of their newest Pop! series features Batman, Harley Quinn, the Joker, Killer Croc, and Poison Ivy, and they all look precious. I’d love to see a version of the game with these designs.

Pre-order the figures now for November shipment.

Check out the rest of the series after the break.

Artists who participate in Comic Book Resources’ “The Line it is Drawn” column answer some of life’s greatest questions. The challenge for a 2012 column was “What if ___ and ____ had a baby?” DeviantArt user Marco D’Alfonso decided to imagine Harley Quinn and Deadpool’s offspring, and despite the chaos that would ensue, I have to admit their little family is pretty adorable. I bet no one volunteers to babysit though.

Katee Sackhoff kicks butt. The talented actress will long be remembered for her role as Starbuck in the new Battlestar Galactica, and she’s stayed busy since then. Most recently, she took on a role in a Riddick. She spoke with Total Film about the role, and they ventured into other territory – like comic books and Star Wars. Sackhoff is more than willing to take on iconic roles and even auditioned for the Wonder Woman television show:

I remember auditioning for the Wonder Woman television show and being told that I wasn’t the Wonder Woman type, but if I wanted to play the best friend, I could audition for that.

And remember thinking to myself, ‘You obviously haven’t seen my work!

As cool as Wonder Woman is, she would love to get a chance to play Harley Quinn and this isn’t the first time she’s expressed her love for the character. She told Total Film:

I would love to play Harley Quinn. I just think it’s amazing. I mean I think I might give away my firstborn to have an opportunity to play Harley Quinn…

I love trying to understand the villain, and trying to understand the things they do and why they do them, and I’ve always found her and The Joker, you almost can’t understand them. And it makes it so much more interesting because everything’s fair game, and I love that. I loved the usefulness of her, I thought that was interesting, and I just think that it’s a fantastic character.

And as far as Star Wars, she wouldn’t mind playing in that universe either. She’s already voiced a fantastic character on The Clone Wars and is a fan of Han Solo but getting involved in the new movies wouldn’t stink:

If J.J. would listen, I would play a rock in the Star Wars movies. I think that they’re fantastic, I think that he’s a great choice, and I’m excited to see what happens in that world.

I’d love to see Sackhoff in any or all of these roles. She would even manage to make a rock interesting.

Don’t get too excited because there’s no plan in the works for Harley Quinn to make an appearance in a live-action superhero movie, but if plans happen, Katee Sackhoff is up for the role. Speaking with Esquire she noted:

I love Harley Quinn. I do. I just love it…It’s not been done before. It’s this fantastic mix. I mean, it’s like the female Joker. Who wouldn’t want to do that? Quite potentially — it’s not around so I wouldn’t feel the weight of it — I’d probably sell my first born at this point to do that.

I hope the right people find out about this and make it happen! I wouldn’t hold your breath though as we are about to embark on the Ben Affleck Batman experience and there has been no talk thus far about the character making an appearance.

The new Sideshow Harley Quinn Premium Format Figure stands 21 inches tall, weighs 9 pounds, and exudes maniacal sass. Interchangeable heads let you switch from masked glee to an unmasked, bratty, stuck out tongue. In either case, you get all of the things that make Harley Quinn so…Harley.

Here’s some art for everyone who’s ever wondered what superheroes do on their days off. This is the second installment in a series of prints from Gregoire Guillemin that imagine what superheroes do when they’re not being super. It’s kind of just like what the rest of us do, but with a snazzier wardrobe.
