Writer Stephanie Phillips reveals the quirky circumstances surrounding the genesis of one of Harley Quinn’s newest characters, Waffle Dog.
Stephanie Phillips shed some light on the beginning of one of Harley Quinn’s freshest characters, the charming canine alluded to as “Waffle Dog.”
The essayist gave an entertaining history to the beginning of the four-legged companion during a board conversation at the current year’s virtual Comic-Con International. As indicated by Phillips, Waffle Dog came about when craftsman Riley Rossmo could at this point don’t contain his energy for the possibility of drawing a canine and a bear.
“Quite a while past there were things that Riley disclosed to me he was truly eager to draw, one of which was a canine and one was a bear. Thus we figured out how to have an issue [of] Harley Quinn that has both a canine and a bear. What’s more, the canine’s name is Waffle,” Phillips related. Developing how the person created, she uncovered, “Harley can’t exactly understand a canine named Waffle, so I think what you’re sporadically seeing is her envisioning the canine in some way or another transformed with a waffle now and again.”
As verified by board arbitrator Ben Abernathy, Rossmo’s presenting via web-based media of Waffle Dog’s picture created sufficient interest in the person that fans are asking about its appearance in the series. “I think Waffle Dog is likely going to stay close by in ensuing issues, as well… We preferred Waffle Dog,” said Phillips.
