Not a lot happening over at the erstwhile Action Comics this week, crusaders, and I’m a bit crunched for time, so today’s DCDP is going to highlight two great shippy moments from this week.
Starting off strong, right out of the gate, we finally have confirmation that Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy aren’t just best buds. When asked by a fan whether Harley and Ivy are girlfriends, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner had a crystal-clear answer:

Fans have been wishing for clarification on this relationship ever since this page popped up in Harley Quinn #2, way back in 2o13:
But maybe Harley and Ivy don’t make your little shipper heart skip a beat, because you might be…I don’t know, dead. In that case, you’ll probably be unmoved by our next fanfic-brought-to-life, but I made starry eyes at it this morning and so you’re getting it this afternoon.
Remember when this awesome piece of fanart popped up and made the rounds?
Yeah, I would wear every one of those costumes.
Anyway, the man behind the ink, Stephen Byrne, opted to work the wildly popular image into a nine page silent comic, which is about as awesome as you can imagine, and which ends with a totally delightful twist. I don’t want to spoil it for you, but you can find the whole comic, along with an interview with Stephen, right here.
Who are you shipping these days, crusaders? Let me know in the comments!
