Skip to comments.DC Comics asks for naked Harley Quinn suicide drawings for talent contest

In a rather appalling move, DC Comics is holding a talent search for artists that requires the entrants to draw DC character Harley Quinn in various suicidal tableaus, one of which is also naked.
Here are the panel submission requirements:
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 cord 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.
The outrage online was swift, with one tumblr user writing, "Congrats, DC, for fully driving me away. I kept defending you, because you were the comics I grew up with. But you keep disappointing me, and this is the last (disgusting) straw."

Oh Well, I guess you always take shots from folks who just don't get the Joke...
People I worked with used to mock me because I didn’t let my kids read comic books. I know I’m an oddball, but even 20 years ago I could see where it was going.
Sitting in a bathtub with your clothes on is just too weird.
What’s a Harley Quinn? Or who? I get the play on words, butttttttt...?
DC does seem to be shooting themselves in the foot a lot lately.
Seriously. That’s what the strategic placement of bubble and reflective water is all about. Without the water, the toasters are useless. Well, except for making toast.
the woman in charge of DC has continued to botch story after story.
She gutted batwoman into a deviant.
they continue to screw up movie after movie.
they refuse “truth justice and the american way”
