Harley is about to cross the line from wacky to just plain insane. Bishop, the cop who sworn to take her down for killing his partner, has unknowingly met her under her fake civilian guise of psychiatrist Jessica Seaborn. Now, Harley has accepted a date with this not-so-fine example of Gotham's finest. And just to keep Harley on her toes, Cupid has sent a certain psychotic ex-paramour to turn this into the strangest date in the history of love. Can you say...The Joker?

    This issue is amazing, because you see Joker and Harley Quinn out on a date and even at some point of time, the Joker is a bit jealous of a Gotham policeman and Harley Quinn teases him about it. Joker completely denies it and Joker doesn't even seem himself, because of his strong infatuation with Harley. Harley says to Joker at the end..."I hate you Joker!' Joker says amusingly: "What's hate, but love with some friction?" Read Full Review

    I can't say I cared much for the issue's use of the Joker, as the character comes across as far too subdued and low key, which acts to undercut the entire point of using the Joker. I mean out of all the characters in the DCU who I expect to bring a wildly demented feel to a book, the Joker has to be number one on the list, so his flat performance in this issue was very disappointing. Now I do like the idea that Harley has arrived at a point where she's starting to wonder if there might be more to life than being a costumed villain. Now from a story telling sense I seriously doubt A.J. Lieberman would be silly enough to have Harley settle down to live a normal life, as that would make for a mind numbingly dull book, but I do like the idea that she is having doubts. I also enjoyed how the Joker was able to appeal to the less than sane elements in Harley's mind, as it does make for a solid character moment when she is thinking about how much she enjoys the thrill of being a super-villain.
