DC Comics villain Harley Quinn — a mainstay on all of the sexy-women-in-comics lists and the Joker’s sometimes-girlfriend/accomplice — is now sparking a different kind of controversy.
The Harley Quinn Annual #1, released Oct. 29, has a scratch-and-sniff cover with art via Amanda Conner and scent via cannabis sativa, according to comic industry site Bleeding Cool.
We’ll call it DC Dank.
“The U.S. version will contain smells including leather, suntan lotion, pizza and ‘whats referred to in the story as cannabisylocibe 7-A.’ The smell of cannabis, that is,” Bleeding Cool writes. “Being distributed to comic stores across the country.”
The international release of the DC issue will smell of freshly cut grass — a nicely curated, and safer, homage.
