Gotham City’s elusive serial killer, the Starlet, and her mysterious benefactor reach the pinnacle of their power, terrorizing the city and teasing the GCPD with strange clues and a famous new victim. Harley goes rogue and hunts down a shocking major lead in the case, but her ruthless style backfires and she puts herself at the mercy of Commissioner Montoya for a shot at redemption. When FBI Agent Hector Quimby becomes an ally in a crucial moment, he and Harley forge a partnership that will soon take them down a familiar and ominous road.

    Dark Knight News - Kendra Hale Nov 26, 2020

    I find it harder to find words to describe just how vital Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn #2 is, as it further proves that this is no offshoot or side story, but a genuine continuation of the world that has already been established. It sets a precedence for what a continuing story should be, and continues to blow my mind. I can't get over just how much I want more after the final page. Although the teasers for the next issue of Matteo Scalera's artwork are genuinely amazing, and do whet the appetite for a bit. Read Full Review

    Sean Murphy, Matteo Scalera and Katana Collins are hitting all the bases in this series. From a new origin of the Joker to a “Harley Fight” to hyenas playing with the kids! Oh…there's a murder or two to solve as well.  Read Full Review

    Mateo Sclera's art, paired with Collin's writing, presents a gritty, dark feel to this story, which is what I love about Batman stories. Read Full Review

    Two issues in, Collins and Scalera have created a series that feels like it shouldn't work, only for it to perform exceptionally well. Read Full Review

    Granted, this issue wasn't quite as strong as issue #1, but that's more because the series set a rather high bar right out of the gate, and issue #2 continues the book's winning streak. Read Full Review

    Strong characterization, excellent narrative tone-painting, and boldly gorgeous art lift the somewhat meandering plotting to an enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Corbin Nelson Feb 17, 2021

    The last few pages really salvage this issue, but I can't help but feel that it's spinning its gears a bit too much with unnecessary flashbacks and not focusing enough on the mystery " which, at least to me, should be the real hook of the miniseries. Read Full Review

    Murphyverse got me invested into its lore and character since the original White Knight book. I already said it more than once, but it's exactly what I needed, with characters acting exactly the way I'd envision them acting. It succeeds where the main DC continuity fails, and this spin-off series is the prime example of that.

    I am really liking the Murphyverse as it is something new and exciting and interesting and not just rehashing the same old ideas. While this issue wasn't as strong as the last one, it is still enjoyable enough.

    Other than some wonky drawings in the opening fight scene, the artwork is tightening up. The tea thing is stupid, but I like how evident the relationship between Neo Joker and Ivy is communicated through their body language in the artwork without the need to say a word about it. That's comic book artistry at it's best.

    So out of character it's painful to read.

    "White Knight Presents: Harley Quinn" goes for fan service over substance.

    There's just a lot of weird narrative choices that just turned me off which only was made to appeal more to some shipper girls on Twitter. There’s a strain of Harley Quinn fandom that creeps me right the heck out. It’s when they start idealizing and romanticizing her relationship with the Joker. They're not two people madly in love and united against the world. She’s obsessively codependent and he’s a sociopath and thinks of her as a mere tool. And the whole tragedy of Harley Quinn, the thing that makes her so easy to relate to and sympathize with, is her hopeless infatuation with someone who c more
