DC Comics Announces Return Of ILLUSTRATED SWIMSUIT EDITION Featuring Harley Quinn, Nightwing, And More

Depending on how big of a DC fan you are, G'nort's name may or may not ring a bell. He's a bumbling Green Lantern who protects Sector 68 and, for some reason, he's going to be the host and proprietor of G'Nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition!

Along the way, this cosmic fuzzball will showcase some of DC Comics' best swimsuit covers and, according to the publisher, "swim-tacular" stories. From Batman in a bat(hing) suit to Poison Ivy pin-ups, this special one-shot is summer fun from (bikini) top to (bikini) bottom.

Each copy of G'Nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition will also feature a randomly inserted centerfold, distributed in equal quantities: Poison Ivy by Jen Bartel, Nightwing and Barbara Gordon by Jorge Jimenez and Alejandro Sánchez, and G'Nort himself, by Simon Bisley. 

"G'nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition collects some of the splashiest, steamiest, swimsuit covers from DC's best talent, all in one place for the very first time," reads the solicitation text, "along with Steve Orlando, Paul Pelletier, Norm Rapmund, Adriano Lucas and Rob Leigh’s Midnighter and Apollo story, 'Out There' from DC Cybernetic Summer."

The issue also includes, "a new 8-page story 'Baewatch' featuring The Penguin - clad in the tightest bathing trunks you can imagine - by Julie Benson and Shawna Benson with art by Meghan Hetrick, Marissa Louise and Steve Wands."

Featuring 48 pages of art by Amanda Conner, Paul Pelletier, Nicola Scott, Mikel Janín, Jeff Dékal, Daniel Sampere, Gleb Melnikov, Derrick Chew, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau, Emanuela Lupacchino, Joëlle Jones, Megan Huang, Terry Dodson, Babs Tarr, Pete Woods, Joe Quinones, Hélène Lenoble, Otto Schmidt, Michael Allred, Sweeney Boo, David Talaski, Jenny Frison, and others, G'nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition swims into comic book stores on August 29.

You can check out some of that eye-catching artwork by Vasco Georgiev, J. Scott Campbell, Terry and Rachel Dodson, Hélène Lenoble, Derrick Chew, Mikel Janín, Nicola Scott, Pablo Villalobos, and Adam Hughes below.

Ugh, get that ugly ransom cotton candy out of Harley's hair already like it looks ridiculous. Either put it back to red and black or done use dip dye at all.

Stop thinking the character of Harley is Margot. She doesn't even play the real Harley! She plays new 52 knock off Harley and that hair had been gone since 2020 when she cut it in BOP. In TSS it's back to her color scheme. Put it back or drop the dip dye

So is this Gunn approved?
You know your in trouble when you gotta fall back on the 'swimsuit editions' to make people look at your work again.

Adam Hughes covers are nearly always great.

Did some fantastic Catwoman and Zatanna covers, I have a Power Girl cover he did which is a classic.
