At last, the moment fans have been waiting for since issue #1--Batman guest-stars and the Joker returns with something less than romance in his heart. Harley may have renounced him, but did she really mean it? And given that this is the Joker, you know nothing is going to be as it seems as he launches a scheme that will have readers and Batman guessing until the end.

    If you enjoyed Harley Quinn back when she was a standout character in "Batman: The Animated Series", then chances are you'll find this issue a lot of fun, as the story is very much in the spirit of that period of Harley's history. Her interaction with the Joker is the amusing back & forth banter that made her so much fun, and her dealings with Batman are equally entertaining. The problem with this series is that it is so focused on having a good time that it forgot it's suppose to be set in the DCU. I mean both Batman & the Joker are almost toothless in this issue, and their relationship with each other has a Silver Age quality to it, as the book seems to have forgotten how dangerous the Joker is suppose to be. I mean this is the man who tore into Jason Todd with a crowbar, and shot Barbara Gordon, but this issue plays the character as an amusing guest-star. Still, this is an issue that I'm sure younger readers will enjoy. Read Full Review
