Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti meet for the new Harley Quinn miniseries
In a few months we will be able to enjoy the film of Birds of Prey, which will have a leading role of Harley Quinn. We are already accustomed to these premieres being accompanied by new series in the world of comics, so it is no surprise that In addition to the regular series of Birds of Prey made by Brian Azzarello - which recently went to Black Label - a miniseries made by the marriage of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, responsible for the successful relaunch of 2013 and that have led the character to the popularity situation you are living right now.
This new series is based on the prestige in which Joker and Harley have finally separated, and when Mr. J's favorite clown tries to start his new life he will discover that they have put a price on his head of 10 million dollars, so He will have to resort to Birds of Prey in order to face this threat.
Bob Harras, editor of DC, has talked about this new release:
The combination of Amanda, Jimmy and Harley has always resulted in great stories for their fans, and this time will not be an exception. It is the favorite version of many fans. Like Batman: The last knight on earth and Batman / Catwoman, this miniseries is another example of incredible creative teams that increase their legacy.

Amy Reeder will write and draw a series of Amethyst
This weekend there was a Wonder Comics stamp panel at Comic Con in New York, where the novelties for this line have been commented. The most prominent has undoubtedly been the announcement of a regular series for Amethyst, that will be written and drawn by Amy Reeder. Initially, the author planned to leave to work on a series of her own creation, but from the publishing house she was offered.
There is much world building, many landscapes and psychedelia. It's a lot of fun, I think I'm going to do a great job.
Amethyst is a character that was originally created by Dan Mishkin, Gary Cohn and Ernie Columbus in 1983, but since then it has barely lavished through the DC universe until it has been rescued by Brian Michael Bendis for his regular Young Justice series.

At last! After several reboots, collections that did not coincide temporarily, relaunches and parallel universes DC has announced that it will carry out a project called DC Timeline, where all the chronology of the universe will be ordered and they will try that the different stories that are told from now on are more connected to each other, preventing Batman - to give an example - in a collection have cosmic powers and in another he has left the mantle, something that happened in the New stage 52
Your universe will be divided from now on 4 stages marked by important events: "Dawn of the Heroic Age", with the arrival of Wonder Woman to the land of men, "The Space Age", with the arrival of Superman, "The Age of Crisis" that goes from Crisis in Infinite Lands to Flashpoint, and finally "Flashpoint", which will cover from the event of the same name to the current stage, through New 52.
At the moment it is unknown how this initiative will be launched and if there will be changes in classical continuity to square everything, but it is certainly great news to rejoice.
