Harley gained powers beyond those of normal humans when she was the subject of Poison Ivy's experiments. But every gift has its price, and now Harley faces the consequences. When some of Gotham City's bottom feeders have something of Ivy's that Harley desperately needs, it becomes a race against time to get it back before Harley's health disintegrates. You've never seen Harley this desperate, or dangerous. Plus, Harley and Doc discuss love.

    Following on the heels of a story arc that I found to be unfocused & too dependent on some rather shaky plot devices, I was pleasantly surprised by this issue, as not only is it a solid done-in-one affair, but it also holds up fairly well as a clearly detailed bit of action. Now the humor is still sorely missed, and there are times where I feel the book gets a little too graphic in it's violence, but for the most part I found this issue to be a highly enjoyable bit of crime-fiction. I also like the basic premise of this issue as it borrows its plot from one of my favorite film noir flicks (the original D.O.A.), and it offers up a climax that is equal parts thrilling & comedic, as one almost expects the Three Stooges to join in on the fun. The idea that Harley is so dependent on a chemical she can only obtain from Poison Ivy is also an interesting Achilles heel for the character to be saddled with. Read Full Review
