Harley Quinn #1 1:25 Hughes Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

Still the Queen B of Harley variants, this book gets the gold medal.


Harley Quinn #1 Turner Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

Even though it’s not 100% Turner artwork, it’s still good enough for the silver.


Harley Quinn #1 Dell’Otto Pink Variant

HEAT CHECK STATUS: pepperpepperpepperpepper

Just when you thought the Harley money grab was over, this variant became a late addition and captures the bronze.

Note: Variants appearing in the Top 10 will not appear on this list due to contractual obligations.

    no artgerm? shame – personally think the sketch is miles better than the dell otto and the aspen. also i believe lower print run or very close to those above… the hughes variant still rocks though

      From an art perspective, I totally agree with you, as the Artgerm is my favorite cover of all the Harley variants. But from a sales perspective, unfortunately the Artgerm really is run of the mill, with mostly sales that include all 3 covers. The most limited cover is the line art sketch, and it hasn’t really sold much by itself.

    While the numbers might favor Dell’Otto Pink Variant, it sat in their shop for over a day waiting to be sold out. Hatless variant (Turner) was out of stock within the hour. While the Del’Otto pink variant probably will go up in price as it is a nice cover, collectors for the most part already had the opportunity to pick it up when it was on sale and opted to pass on it as it was already $40…

      not sure why people are buying it now then for over$100 when they could’ve had it for $40 and passed on it…But next week we’ll be done talking Harley (hopefully)!

    Artgerm is by far the best cover out of ALL OF THEM
