The improbable Red Tool is coming after Harley...but is this a personal vendetta? And more important-what can she do to stop him when he seems to shrug off everything she throws in his path?

    Harley and the Red Tool work out their differences–sort of–and come to an understanding with the new Chief of Police as well. Is this match made in hell headed for something more serious? Or will Harley for once in her life learn to slow down? As far as a potential team-up partner Red Tool has his charms, but does he really have what it takes to keep up with the likes of the crazy Quinn girl? Guess we'll just have to keep reading to find out. Not that I'm complaining! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills May 21, 2016

    It's a nice little romance, and I hope it goes somewhere, because I never really bought into Harley's romance with her last boyfriend. When Conner and Palmiotti slow things down and focus on the characters over the zaniness, like they did all throughout this issue, it really drives home why this book is so good. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway May 18, 2016

    Conner and Palmiotti pull a dirty trick on the reader and make a throwaway, parody goofball like Red Tool into a likable character with whom we can empathize. There are some new developments at the police department that spell a new status quo for Harley Quinn, but she is able to take it in stride due to her very high-cut booty shorts. They allow her to stride, you see? Get maximum extension of her legs? Ah, jokes are lost on you. The art is great, which you've already guessed if you read Harley Quinn. So pick it up if the mention of "booty shorts" is enticing to you. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn has often struggled to regain its footing in the past year, but this latest arc, while brief, has helped to put things back on track. The amusing dynamic between Harley and her new admirer is a big part of this, but it's also a matter of the series slowing down just enough to find its focus again. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green May 19, 2016

    I was slightly disappointed by the previous installment of HQ because I thought that Red Tool's feelings for Harley kind of came out of nowhere. Since that was already established last time I was able to orient myself into the plot and really enjoyed it. As I said above, I liked seeing Red Tool's affection for Harley. Her response to his overtures was predictably wary but then she began to warm up to him. The relationship arc was very satisfying, I hope we see more of Red Tool in issues to come. Read Full Review

    I'm still wondering what to make of the final page. One thing is for certain: the scatapult is primed and aimed squarely at a giant fan. Expect it to deploy in kind next month. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn is some crazy $#*% but it's the good kind. This series is ending but it's more like a renumbering after Rebirth drops, for now Red Tool seems like a fun little parody of Deadpool but please for the love of baby Jesus, you ebay scalpers who are trying to make a quick buck with "Red Tool first appearance" don't forget to put the toilet seat down in your parents' basement after you flush...
