DC Runs Low on Talent to Drive Away, Holds Open Search for More

DC holds an open search for more creators it can abuse.



Source: DC Comics

Have you ever dreamed of joining the throng of creators who have walked off of a DC book due to editorial interference?  Would you like to redraw a page over and over again until a female character is all but nude shows the perfect amount of skin?  Would you like your name to be left off the cover of a comic book because of reasons?  Then DC has the opportunity for you!

Scant hours after the announcement that JH Williams and Haden Blackman were leaving Batwoman due to editorial concerns, this tweet popped up on DC Comics' twitter feed:

 

It appears that DC is offering one lucky creator the chance to draw a page of November's Harley Quinn #0, joining the ranks of 19 other artists on the debut issue of the Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti series.  All cracks aside, this sounds like a pretty cool chance for aspiring artists, especially those looking to work in the glamorous world of corporate comics.  DC is accepting pencil, ink and color submissions at DCTalentSearch.com, so turn in your submissions today!

Hell, if you make it into the comic, we'll reset the counter at HasDCDoneSomethingStupidToday.com just to provide you with a bit of extra publicity/infamy!

PANEL 4
Harley sitting naked in a bathtub with toasters, blow dryers, blenders, appliances all dangling above the bathtub and she has a cord that will release them all. We are watching the moment before the inevitable death. Her expression is one of “oh well, guess that’s it for me” and she has resigned herself to the moment that is going to happen.

A suit of raw chicken? Really?
PANEL 2
Harley is sitting in an alligator pond, on a little island with a suit of raw chicken on, rolling her eyes like once again, she cannot believe where she has found herself. We see the alligators ignoring her. - See more at: http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151#sthash.CM3FG9uT.7WlroR0r.dpuf.

Yeah, the script wasn't included when that tweet went up. All of us saps who reported the contest missed on that part.

According to Palmiotti, the page in question is Harley Quinn complaining about the writers of the comic making her do increasingly crazy and bizarre things, culminating in the writers having her kill herself off.

So, in a way, it's a weird meta message about the state of the DCnU.

Eh, it sounds better than Harley comparing her vagina to a clown car (or whatever the complaint was two years ago).

I'm working on my submission now, does anyone know what pantone color Harley Quinn's nipples should be? Thanks in advance.

Maybe I should just start a separate thread..
