Dear DC Comics, specifically Jim Lee and Dan Dido.
Please note the attached picture.  This is Harley Quinn.  The skank featured on the cover of Suicide Squad #1 is not.  We, the fans, can accept a few changes from time to time.  Variations of favorite characters can be fun at times.  Harley’s portrayal in Batman:  Arkham Asylum was fun and her costume was understandable given the situation.  You may present the argument that Catwoman has undergone costume changes over the years.  Even with those changes, she remains recognizable.  This anime skank version of Harley is not recognizable as the character, and it is an image that I am not comfortable sharing with my kids, who are also fans of Batman.
I have not seen all of the new ‘#1s’ yet, but what I have seen so far, what I have read in previews and reviews has forced me to lose faith in DC Comics just as I lost faith in Marvel comics when they decided to take the ‘extreme’ route as a means to get new fans.  You may indeed get new fans, but you will also lose many loyal fans in the months to come.  I cannot support these changes right now.  I may in the future, but it will take some convincing.
As a writer, I like to see my characters evolve.  I like to see what they become.  Unless done right, rebooting a character can be the worse thing you could ever do.  You make the statement that all of this history, all of the stories, all of the memories are no longer vaild..
Thank you.

Suicide Squad #1, due out… today actually… or yesterday. Almost yesterday.  All I want to know is Why?  Why, DiDo?  Why did you have to change Harley in to some anime looking gothic lolita who got kicked out of the circus?  I’m throwing in with everyone else who is complaining about the DC Reboot.  The only boot in this ‘reboot’ is the boot you’re giving the fans.  You idiots are fixing something that wasn’t broke.

…quit try to be like Marvel…

…I want my money back…
