    Last issue was a watershed moment for the character that anyone with a passing knowledge of Harley could participate on equal terms, and following that up is the perfect entry point for anyone who was still fence sitting. Read Full Review

    Strong social messages, well balanced and paced storytelling with fantastic dialogue makes this a winner from beginning to end. Bar none this is how character writing should be. On top of that it's very new reader friendly. Read Full Review

    Harley's got another spin-off series coming to a comic store near you (and don't forget her Little Black Book is also concurrently running), but nothing beats the original real deal. This book is just as much fun as a one-off guilty pleasure as it is a long-stretch journey full of fun turns and fabulous fancies. Some weeks I shake my head and wonder at some of the books on my pull list, but this is never one of them! Read Full Review

    As I said earlier, this is somewhat of a transitional issue, although it doesn't make it any less entertaining. The character has gone through a lot lately and something like this is welcome. I'm expecting the Red Tool aspect to make for an explosive final two issues before we get to Rebirth. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Mar 24, 2016

    Though this issue didn't measure up to the last one I still enjoyed it. If you are a Harley Quinn fan I'd wholeheartedly recommend this issue. If you are thinking of getting into the title it would be a good one to start with as it is the beginning of a story arc, though keep in mind it does do a bit of housekeeping after the end of the previous arc. All in all it is a solid issue of a good comic. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 26, 2016

    Like a lot of issues of Harley Quinn, this one is all over the place, but in the usual good way. This issue is made up of a lot of little scenes, almost all of which work nicely and make for an entertaining comic. I liked Harley on the beach, I like her new hair style, I like her in the roller derby; it's all good fun.I've never been a big fan of this disjointed story structure, but it still works just fine. And Harley remains a thoroughly interesting and entertaining character, even when she's feeling melancholy. We've all been there. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn is back home, but Gotham never really lets go once it has a hold of you. This issue is a lot of setup for the new status quo and a new villain. It's mostly character building and fun times with a few action beats involving our mystery guest. A fun issue with nothing truly consequential happening. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 23, 2016

    Harley Quinn has been a fairly frustrating read over the past year. There's a lot to love still about the character and her portrayal, but the book is constantly suffering from odd pacing and storytelling choices that serve to always make Harley feel like a character in flux. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 29, 2016

    I guess we can call this Harley Quinn pilot episode, take two, because this book is more or less an epilogue to the previous arc that re-establishes the silly, murderous status quo of the titular character. The art is great, but the comic is a little wordy for my tastes. If you've been looking for an entry point to the series, this is as good issue for it. But really, unless you're unnaturally confused  by concepts like taxidermied talking beavers and sentient egg-people, then you could probably pick any old issue and jump on whenever.
