It's notoriously difficult to break into the comic book industry, but DC Comics is going to be offering the opportunity for one lucky artist with an open talent search.
Earlier today, DC Entertainment announced that they are looking for someone to draw one page of Harley Quinn #0. Submissions can be pencils, pencils & inks or pencils, inks & colors, but the work needs to be of professional-quality. DC Comics Co-Publishers Dan Didio and Jim Lee will be reviewing the submissions to select one artist whose work will appear in the issue alongside talents such as Amanda Conner, Paul Pope, Bruce Timm, and more.
Artists are being asked to draw one script page consisting of four panels for their submissions. Here is a description of the four panels, which includes a nude scene in the last panel.
PANEL 1- Harley is on top of a building, holding a large DETACHED cellphone tower in her hands as lightning is striking just about everywhere except her tower. She is looking at us like she cannot believe what she is doing. Beside herself. Not happy.
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.
PANEL 3 - Harley is sitting in an open whale mouth, tickling the inside of the whale’s mouth with a feather. She is ecstatic and happy, like this is the most fun ever.
PANEL 4 - Harley sitting naked in a bathtub with toasters, blow dryers, blenders, appliances all dangling above the bathtub and she has a chord 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.
