Things We Saw Today: Arrow‘s Harley Quinn, Makeup, Pigtails, And All
Harley Quinn’s Arrow cameo consisted only of her voice (Tara Strong) and the back of her head (actress Cassidy Alexa), but as we can see from this pic Michael Rowe (aka Deadshot) posted to Instagram, the hair and makeup team did not skimp on Harley-ing her up. Feel free to lose your minds in the comments. (Blastr)
- Comics Alliance’s Andrew Wheeler takes Marvel’s Mandarin-themed one-shot All Hail the King to task for its use of the “prison bitch” gag. Ah ha ha, prison rape, so funny. Also, as Wheeler says: “This is the first presentation of a same-sex relationship or anything resembling a gay character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe across eight movies, five one-shots, and fifteen episodes of television. And that is the part that burns.”
- Vulture has an interview with G. Willow Wilson, creator of teenage Muslim Ms. Marvel Kamala Khan.
This is Twitter user 30miomio3030’s Pomeranian cosplaying (dogplaying?) Attack on Titan. It’s too cute. Make it stop! (Fashionably Geek)
- Comic Book Resources gives a boots-on-the-ground recap of ECCC’s “Broadening Comics Readership” panel, which had Greg Rucka, Kelly Sue DeConnick, former DC editor (and former The Mary Sue weekend editor!) Janelle Asselin, and more talking about inclusiveness in comics.
- Robert H. Richards IV, a heir to the du Pont family chemical fortune, was given probation for raping his three-year-old daughter because the judge thought he wouldn’t “fare well” in prison. Excuse me, I need to go vomit. (The Frisky)
