    This book hits all the right notes, including ones you didn't even know you wanted to hear. And if things weren't crazy enough in this issue, it ends with a cliff-hanger you'll want to return to. Can Red Tool out-crazy the Mistress of Madness? I for one am looking forward to finding out! Read Full Review

    More than many other books, when you read HARLEY QUINN, you know that this is exactly what it needs to be for the character at its center. This is not a side-Batman or Joker story. This is all Harley, and thankfully DC has corralled a strongly inventive team that understands how to make it all work, when it could be just another smut book of corsets and sex puns.

    Bringing in a Deadpool parody is a great way to pique interest, but make no mistake, Team Harley Quinn are building towards the future just as relentlessly as they did on day one. Read Full Review

    Fans of Harley this book is a no brainer. If you're on the fence or looking at an entry point I might pick up a trade, but if you just want to be entertained give this issue a go. Read Full Review

    Despite its flaws, this issue reads like something of a return to form for a series that's struggled to find balance in recent months. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Apr 28, 2016

    Next month's installment looks to continue the madness in an interesting way. I just hope that Harley is able to escape from her situation much like how Adam West's Batman once thwarted the marital machinations of Marsha, Queen of Diamonds. Read Full Review

    The Kliq Nation - Timdogg Apr 27, 2016

    Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti took a good-natured dig at Marvel with Red Tool. He does fit into the Harley Quinn story and doesn't feel shoehorned in. John Timms and Alex Sinclair's art feels like something out of an animation studio. Red Tool could be just a special guest star, but its clear the writers have more plans for him. He's left Harley with a special "gift" and is looking to take their new relationship to the next level. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 27, 2016

    In this issue, we learn the Secret Origin of Red Tool, and as Harley points out, it ain't much. Some decent jokes and nice scenes of bludgeoning and skull-cracking are ruined by really bad color work. A forced conversation with Red Tool brings out some nice Harley Quinn character moments as well as opportunities for silly, and if you're a fan of that wacky homicidal imp then you'll enjoy this issue plenty!

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 27, 2016

    The issue rolls along at a good pace with plenty of action, exposition, and interesting story elements. I wouldn't call Red Tool a smashing success who needs his own book anytime soon, but he certainly adds a certain element that'll make me come back next month. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Carl Boehm Apr 27, 2016

    Let's hope the parody ends quickly so Conner and Palmiotti can get back to making Harley Quinn the sadistic little temptress we all want her to be"minus the sour grapes attempt at jabbing the competition. Read Full Review
