    The artwork by Carmen Carnero is first-rate. I've not seen her name before, so I am uncertain how new she is to comics. Regardless, her work stand head and shoulders above the newer talent Ive seen lately. Read Full Review

    For me, the fun part of the book involves Barbara and Batman as they figure things out with what happened to her father and the connection to Kara. It does feel like Barbara should have had more of a role earlier on in relation to Kara and that leaves me a little wary with the larger structure of this series that I hope gets ironed out more as I catch up on installments. I like the time with these two but was less enamored of Harley and Larry because it plays between past and present in ways that leaves me trying to figure out the years, ages, and how it all works. There are fun moments to it because Harley is generally fun and I like seeing some Quinzel bits as well but not enough to salvage it. What helps make the book engaging throughout however is Aneke's artwork. Always good with layouts, especially in the digital-first format, and definitely with character designs. Lots of good stuff to be had here though I'm partial to the Barbara material. Read Full Review

    Gotham City Garage takes us back to the Garden for awhile before providing us a Harley origin story that initially felt tacked on but came full circle Tarantino style in the end.  The art, although it's changed throughout the series, gets its best showing yet in this issue. Read Full Review

    This month, the art duties go to Carnero and Mulvihil who do an admirable job with the interior art. Everything is crisp, clear and has some excellent visual storytelling going on. I’m really hoping these two get to work more on this title together. Read Full Review

    It seems like this series has a lot less to do with motorcycle action than expected, instead being mostly about a resistance to a dystopian cyberpunk future. It's not the smoothest read, but issues like this have a strong core to them that wins over the reader. Read Full Review
