Guest-starring Green Lantern! Black and red are kind of Harley Quinn's thing...so when the most unique power ring in the universe crosses her path, she has no choice but to put it on, right? Unfortunately for Harley-and everyone else-this hybrid ring is fueled by rage and death...and things are gonna get out of hand very quickly!

    When you want something fun and full of puns with a side of exploding heads, Harley Quinn is always going to be your girl! Her Little Black Book is shaping up to be a great bi-monthly romp with a big emphasis on its stellar guest stars, but also a nice bit of tethering continuity that links this series as well as creates ties to Harley's solo book. You don't need to read everything to enjoy this, though, and that's perhaps the real beauty of the fine tightrope walk that Conner and Palmiotti traverse. If you're skipping this book because you're sick of so much Harley Exposure, you're only cheating yourself. Read Full Review

    I am as surprised as you, my loyal tens of billionsof readers: I really enjoyed this issue. And I don't mean that as a slight againstthe comic, but more owning up to a personal epiphany about the character.Harley Quinn is a goof. She fights against and then teams up with Hal Jordan togreat comedic effect. Plus, you get to see a new Lantern ring, possibly themost dangerous one of all! I enjoyed the heck out of this silly comic. Read Full Review

    Harley's Little Black Book wasn't on my radar before but after reading this month's shippable adventure, I look forward to spending much more time with Harley and whoever is unfortunate enough to roped into an adventure with her. Read Full Review

    As for my rating, I have been a little hard on some of the Harley titles recently. With Conner and Palmiotti working on so many Harley titles I've felt that some of the writing was losing its zip. This issue however gets Harley back in top form with naughty humor full of pop culture reference. I am hopeful that now that they have completed Harley Quinn and Power Girl that they will be able to team Harley up with new characters and see what kinds of trouble she can get into.

    Harley's Little Black Book #2 is a light adventure tale with as much "Harley humor" added to keep the tone on target with what the reader would expect given the character achoring the series.  As with pretty much any comedy not all the attempts at humor will land on target with everyone, but in my opinion there were enough bits that worked to make it a fun experience.  The issue was for me a fun departure from my normal reading material and I found it worth picking up.  Four out of five lanterns.

    Standing on its own, this is a tough issue to justify a separate purchase outside the main title for folks on tight budgets, but its a fun romp that sits easily beside the most entertaining issues of the main title. If push comes to shove, Id skip this one for the promise of Zatanna next issue, which is a surefire hit, but this is the most fun Ive ever had reading a Hal Jordan appearance that he didnt die in.

    If you crave a little more direct interaction between Harley Quinn and the rest of the DCU, this new series fits the bill. It retains the light tone and charm of the main series while dragging various DC icons in for silly team-ups. Unfortunately, this is the second time in a row the series has ignored the opportunity to explore Harley's fragile psyche in greater depth. That sets a bad precedent going forward. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Feb 12, 2016

    This functions well as both a Green Lantern and Harley Quinn story and should please fans on either side. The two go together like oil and water, yet the story somehow works. I guess the only thing I really didn't care for was the inclusion of the London Legion of Superheroes, whom I could do without. Be sure to come back in two months when Zatanna joins the fun.

    Harley with the power of a Lantern ring is a pretty dangerous thought and we see exactly why here. This issue is a lot of fun and the creators continue to give us exactly what we want from these Harley books. The story works best when it's Harley and Lantern, but tends to lose steam when we spend time with the London Legion. Read Full Review

    this book was surprisingly good. Being that I read Telos first, and that featured a lackluster appearance by Parallax, I wasn’t holding my breath too much for this book to be anything stellar. But it was actually really good. I liked that Harley somehow has a ton of money to throw around on WeBay, and that she was OBVIOUSLY competing with Geoff Johns for an auction for a real-life power ring. The art was great, and Harley as a combo red-and-black lantern was equal parts terrifying and HOT. I liked how this book used her “holy power ring-a-rollee” line, but didn’t do the same tired and hack method of just butchering a rhyme to make things fit together. It felt much more natural for Harley in this book, and once again the London Legion of Super Heroes served ZERO point to the story. If they had been left out, and a dollar got lopped off the price of this book, I would have been happy, and probably gave this book a higher score, because they just bore me. And the fact that they use a drunk who crapped his pants as a way to “distract” and “outsmart” the TSA because the drunk cannot travel internationally due to what is very casually referenced as a murder, seems pointless and a waste. But the rest of this book is solidly written, and really well drawn. Harley’s Little Black Book isn’t just another black mark on my pull list, it is actually fun to read.
