Stop the Suicide Themed Comic Contest

This petition had 2,863 supporters

DC Entertainment, the comic book publishers of heroes like Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman have announced a contest in which artists are to submit a 4 panel depiction of a character trying to kill herself in what are supposed to be funny ways. The last panel of the strip is most disturbing. From the contest rules, "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."

DC, a company famous for their iconic characters, is holding a contest to draw a naked woman killing herself. This contest needs to be pulled and an apology made. So many families and friends have lost loved ones to suicide. Don't let DC ever think that this is a topic to take lightly or make jokes about.
