The first story arc of the new creative team comes to a violent close. Harley learns at long last who framed her for killing a police officer. She also learns who's really behind the attempt on her life. And, most important, she learns which of her very disturbed mental patients is trying to do her in...and wait 'til you see why. Plus, romance makes its way into Harley's life.

    A promising issue in that A.J. Lieberman proves he knows how to generate a dramatically intense sequence that really had me on the edge of my seat. However, the revelation that Harley Quinn can suddenly breath underwater as such a colossal misstep that I was left completely disenchanted. I mean the scene is basically the writer thumbing his nose at the reader, as it takes no real creative thought to introduce a new ability that provides the easy out for our endangered hero, and I have to say I'm quite disappointed that A.J. Lieberman felt this was the best twist he could offer to the reader. Now there are some solid moments of entertainment in this issue, as the interplay between Harley Quinn & the detective is quite engaging, and the villain's motive contained enough mixed up logic that it was rather endearing. However, this book needs to be a little smarter in how it details the material, and the red herrings need to be a little less obvious in their attempts to throw the reader off Read Full Review
