Stephanie Phillips, writer on DC Comics’ upcoming Harley Quinn comic series, recently shared an excellent variant cover from the first issue, provided by none other than legendary Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano.


I’m not much of a comic reader these days but, damn, if this isn’t a tempting reason to get back into them. Amano is one of my favorite artists, video game-related or not, and his interpretation of Ms. Quinzel is nothing short of amazing.

Harley Quinn #1 hits shelves on March 23, 2021.

I have never understood why his art is praised so much. It’s one of those things where everyone but you seem to agree on one thing, so you think either you’re too dumb or everyone else is crazy.

All of his art to me look like unfinished sketches, so much that I am not even sure he actually knows how to draw anything outside his style. It is probably his artistic choice, and I can respect that, but I really wish I could see him do something in a different art style just to be sure he knows how to.
