The Producer’s scheme is in motion, and the GTO is on high alert as Gotham’s hope of a peaceful new horizon begins to collapse. Rattled and recovering from a close encounter with Starlet, Harley examines whether her complicated past with villainy is a burden or a boon to her new identity. She weighs two final options: break all ties and retire to a quiet life, or embrace the chaos, risk, and responsibility of protecting the people and the place that created her. The choice itself may be fantasy, as a targeted attack on Harley ends in tragedy and drives Bruce to a reckless decision that could extend his prison sentence indefinitely.

    However, this issue had some many layers to it. Harley is a pearl strung together with Ivy, Joker/Jack, Bruce, her children….and her original children. You'll cry!!! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Feb 25, 2021

    The penultimate issue of White Knight: Harley Quinn increases the stakes and emotional payoff of this little spinoff that grew into its own story in a very organic fashion, giving us a real sense of intensity going into the finale of this very well-crafted series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 23, 2021

    Batman: White Knight Presents: Harley Quinn #5 tosses in a bunch of cameos and makes a lot of nice, but ultimately doesn't make much progress on the story. The art is good, and honestly, everything about the book is skillfully done, but cameos and Easter Eggs are a poor substitute for story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Corbin Nelson Mar 2, 2021

    Issue #5 of White Knight Presents: Harley Quinn isn't as frustrating or tedious as the past couple of issues in the series. And the art has started to mix things up a bit " even if it doesn't reach the beautimous heights of the first issues. The Starlet is still a wet plop of a villain, but at least this time around she catalyzes some melodramatic action. Still, unless there's some brilliant twist I'm not foreseeing, the series has squandered its intriguing mystery/whodunnit potential. And, sadly, there isn't much left to enjoy now that the intrigue is gone. Read Full Review
