What's that you said? We couldn't quite hear you. Did you say "Boy, I sure would love to see Harley fight giant transforming robots"? Well, that's definitely what we heard! So we're delivering!

    Conner and Palmiotti have taken Harley Quinn to another level, that I've been impressed with for a while now. They know how to take a big character like her and really give us every possible scenario. Something crazy like Harley popping some rockets out of her bottoms is totally normal. Totally.

    With this being the penultimate issue of Harley's New 52 adventures, I'm glad the creative team hasn't decided to phone it in while looking forward to the relaunch (hey, some people do). There's a reason I keep saying this is one of DC's best books and I feel as though I'm proven right month after month. And, if you've ever thought to yourself, "This book doesn't have enough ass missiles," this might be the issue for you. Read Full Review

    Here's a one-shot issue of Harley Quinn that is really entertaining and very well-drawn and nicely plotted. What gives, anyway? It's almost as if this comic book has achieved a consistent level of quality by being apart from the general DC Universe and being allowed to do its own thing. I really appreciate this one-and-done story, too many comics write in long five- or six-issue arcs to fill trade collections, when they could be writing two- and three-issue stories and use single issue plots to fill the gaps. This probably would be a good issue to jump on the series if you're so inclined, because it provides a lot of backstory and will let you know up front whether this is something you might enjoy, or something you think is unbearably stupid. Me, I think it's joyously stupid and I look forward to next month, when a new arc begins! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 25, 2016

    This is the sort of cut loose and have fun issue that makes Harley Quinn a very fun book. There isn't much in the way of character or story depth, but I can't imagine Conner and Palmiotti were too worried about that. It's just Harley having fun and killing people in an oddly Harley-themed giant mech suit. The fun is in the details, like how the suit comes equipped with cluster missiles that fire out of the robot's ass. Good times. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Jun 23, 2016

    I'm loving the fact that with Harley's Gang occupied in another book we get her with Big Tony and Bernie. Even Poison Ivy makes an appearance. These are the characters I prefer to see her with these days. Since this issue is pretty much a one shot, with just a few references to other issues, I'd recommend you pick it up if you are looking for a quick fix of Harley. It isn't her best issue but it hits all the usual buttons. Read Full Review

    This issue features a particularly bizarre combination as gangsters mesh with anime-style mecha warfare. It's a story that would only work n Harley's bizarre little corner of the DCU. Read Full Review
