Harley’s pursuit of the Golden Age killer gets personal. Still in the fog of her discovery about Hector’s obsession, she relives her darkest memory of Jack’s transformation into The Joker-and her own early evolution into Harley Quinn. With Bruce’s counsel, she grapples with the guilt of her past and makes a choice that sends her straight into Starlet and the Producer’s den for an expertly staged showdown that will either crack the case or end her life.

    There isn't much I can say about this series that I haven't already. Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn #4 continues giving us the greatness that we expect from a comic series, and it's without question my favorite book currently on the market. I look forward to reading it and I miss it as soon as I finish the issue. As a comic reader that's all I can ask for; for a series to haunt me. Read Full Review

    Sean Murphy, Matteo Scalera, and Katana Collins are hitting all the bases in the series. With every turn of the page, you get Easter Eggs, homages, but better yet…the Harley this character has always needed to be. DC should be praised for allowing Sean Murphy to not only expand the Batman Universe, but to allow other artists and writers play in this Murphyverse sandbox. Now…let's get Two-Face and Catwoman involved in this! Read Full Review

    What comes next is anybody's guess. I for one can't wait to see what surprises Collins has in store for the penultimate issue.   Read Full Review

    Scalera delivers some beautiful imagery throughout this issue. The characters look fantastic and the way moments are framed adds to the emotion of certain scenes. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Jan 28, 2021

    As White Knight Presents Harley Quinn crests the middle section of its tale, our heroes confront the villains directly for the beginning of their major conflict. Art and writing continue to improve in this well done spinoff of the White Knight universe, maintaining the strength of the Harley Quinn characterization and developing new characters with great potential.

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Jan 27, 2021

    The way Collins and Scalera set it up places more emotional stakes to the conclusion than most endings that question a story's uncertainty. It can go either way, which I can't wait to see unfold in next month's penultimate chapter. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 26, 2021

    Batman: White Knight Presents: Harley Quinn #4 continues its run with consistently great art and excellent character writing. The big reveal of Starlet's identity and motivation was satisfying enough, but it felt a little vanilla. Thankfully, there's enough wonkiness with Hector's messed up mind to keep readers invested for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Corbin Nelson Mar 2, 2021

    Overall, White Knight Presents: Harley Quinn #4 doesn't feel as bloated or crammed with unnecessary/immediately-resolved plot beats as #3. Though the flashbacks still fail to pack the same emotional wallop as they did when the series began. The villain is" exactly who it was telegraphed to be. Harley is less sad. The Joker had yet another origin, but at least the art was good. Duke exists. Sigh. This series better start blowing things up. Read Full Review

    While not as strong issue like the previous ones, I still liked it a lot. And I'm interested to see how Ivy will be explored in this universe and her relationship with Harley.

    Harley's White Knight solo series immediately charmed me with its story and characters, continuing what Sean Murphy already accomplished. One of these two is still here in this issue, in its full glory, but the other began to significantly lack the consistent quality I'd expect from it, and I sure hope it's just a single misstep, and everything will return to its usual high note next month.

    Character-wise Collins already proven herself to be more than capable to write compelling protagonists, and this comic is not an exception. The titular heroine goes through a lot emotionally and we witness, experience that, while also not being overwhelmed by it. It's a good balance, keeping this comic engaging and yet also entertaining.

    At first this was terrible : another Joker origin re-telling, Duke being featured as a character who is not from the Dark Multiverse and then Montoya got snarky as to pick things up and Harley got choked out by rolling film for the grande finale. Originality saved this issue as it came to a close. I just hope the next issue puts a period on the White Knight universe.Oversaturated is an understatement.

    If you give this comic a bad review or say anything critical about it, Sean Murphy will cry on social media.

    I'm so sick of this AU. So far removed from canon it's hard to read. Joker's characterization is possibly the worst that could have been done. All for the sake of a romance nobody really cares about anymore, and nobody ever needed.
