    Overall: Convergence Harley Quinn is something that every Harley fan NEEDS to have in their collection! It's an amazing representation of how broad she is as a character, while delivering everything you could ever want from a Harley store: great laughs, entertaining action, and a lot of crazy.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 7, 2015

    This is another example of a Convergence book that better served the character than the Event they were thrown into.  Steve Pugh gets to unleash Harley Quinn and Captain Carrot in an amusement park for a winner takes all battle royale and it's as fun as you'd imagine.  While I wish the ending gave us more of the sane Harley of the first issue, I was just glad to be along for the wacky ride. The art and story were just pure fun and I'd recommend this issue (and the last) to anyone who likes to smile. Read Full Review

    Seeing Harley Quinn like this combined with a surprisingly moving and tragic ending is enough to elevate this issue and make the whole better than the sum of its parts. Theres a darkness permeating the entire thing that doesnt always feel like it has a place, but the characters are consistent and the storytelling is ALWAYS interesting, making the issue feel at once fun and powerful.

    The end of this book feels a little abrupt, which can lead to some confusion, but this is the kind of Harley I want to see more of. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green May 8, 2015

    Also in this comic is a preview for the upcoming Section Eight series. I think it was a smart idea to include it with Harley Quinn as both have the same zany characters and dialogue. There wasn't really much of a story to relate, it was mostly just an introduction to the ‘heroes'. I look forward to trying out the new book. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 6, 2015

    It's just unfortunate that the issue can't transition back into Harley's personal life more smoothly. By the time Harley's battle with Captain Carrot is over, there's precious little time to wrap up her doomed romance and tie up loose ends. The transition is awkward and the ending abrupt. Even so, there's a sense of tragedy to the way things play out that is appreciated. And even if the script can't quite blend these two elements together, artist Phil Winslade offers a sense of unity. He channels all the hyper-kinetic vibe of Harley's fight while also nailing the more subtle emotions at work in the quieter scenes. Had this series been given more than two meager issues to grow and flourish, it really could have been something. Read Full Review

    The only downside to it all is that we are left hanging with so many questions. What's next for the Sirens? What becomes of Harley's copper buttoned beau? Let's just hope that it all gets wrapped up somehow in the end, somewhere. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 11, 2015

    Is this high art? Certainly not. It's also not trying to be. "Convergence: Harley Quinn" #2 is silly with a dash of slapstick tossed in. This is a cute book, and its primary goal is clearly to just have fun. Mission accomplished. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 18, 2015

    Convergence: Harley Quinn #2 teases a dangerosly dark New 52-ish twist, but thankfully Pugh and Winslade know their audience and allow the issue not to end on a dark note but with Harley and the Captain sharing a moment of camaraderie together that's as strange as every other piece of this issue. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    A strange setup, structural issues with the story, but some fun art, rounding out to a puzzling whole. Read Full Review
