    Harley says her farewells to the Joker and there's nothing equivocal about it. If you've been rooting for Harley to stake her independence, this is the flag planted firmly in the ground. If you've been hoping she'll go back to that horrorshow of being a battered sidekick, you'll want to see why that's just not going to happen. The best part about it is that no matter what side you're on, writers Conner and Palmiotti will likely have you nodding with approval for how this all shakes down. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Emma Houxbois Feb 17, 2016

    It doesnt take much to pick up this issue and understand why Harley locking herself in a cell with the Joker and beating him bloody is remarkable. This is a watershed moment for the character that many longtime fans, myself included, have waited twenty years to see. Its an issue that everyone, regardless of their opinion of this particular run, who has any interest in Harley Quinn needs to see. That said, the longer youve been on this ride and the closer you scrutinize it, the greater it is. Read Full Review

    The normally fun Harley Quinn takes a heavier turn as she confronts the Joker and her past. It's intense but shows how Harley has grown as a character. Mason has been saved and they even managed to stay on the good side of the Bat. I loved seeing her return to Gotham, but it would've been nice to see her return to the current Gotham. I understand why they did not choose that option though. Read Full Review

    This series showcases an evolving Harley that is no longer The Joker's henchgirl/punching bag. She's her own woman. THIS is the Harley I like. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Feb 17, 2016

    “Harley Quinn” #25 is a big issue for the character, not because of the issue number but because of the way that it finally liberates Harley from the Joker. It's a fantastic issue that proves that this series is able to do bigger things than make us laugh. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Feb 18, 2016

    I am not going to even pretend to be objective about my rating for this issue. I don't like Harley together with Joker and it was very satisfying to me seeing her lay a beat down on him. I much prefer the relationship she has with Ivy and we got a very good slice of that here. I thoroughly enjoyed this issue and look forward to what looks to be a remaking of Harley's look. Hopefully she won't get skanked up but we will have to wait and see. Read Full Review

    The moment so many of us have been waiting for!Harley Quinn #25 is an easy recommendation, but I highly suggest you go back and catch up on the series before she starts fresh next month. I know this will be an arc that I'll be snagging once it hits as a trade paperback. The message that this issue is pushing is one that really elevates the bookand also allows some of the minor gripes with the issue to fade away like Harley's past. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 20, 2016

    I can see why there were a few fill-in artists in the last few issues, to give Hardin all the time and energy he needed to blow this one away. This is almost Amanda Conner-level art. With great art, great Harley and Ivy moments, and a great Harley vs. Joker fight, this is a landmark issue of this popular series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 17, 2016

    It's unfortunate that this series can't seem to shake its pacing problems, because otherwise this is one of the strongest chapters of Harley Quinn in the past year. Harley's showdown with Joker was worth the long wait, and her interaction with her supporting cast adds a lighthearted counterpoint to that dramatic reunion. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 17, 2016

    Still, this is the first Harley Quinn comic I found myself enjoying in a real long time. I just wish the art matched the story a bit more, it'd be one hell of a comic if that were the case. Read Full Review
