    Harley Quinn #7 is easily one of the best issue of the series to date. The story is great, the friendship and banter between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy is absolutely wonderful, the humor is fantastic, and the artwork is better than ever. If you are looking for a good comic that's actually funny this week, this is easily for you. Highly recommended and I can't wait to see where the series goes from here. Read Full Review

    This might have been a perfect score if I hadn't thought the Speedo bums were a bit weird (even for a Harley Quinn comic). If you haven't been reading this series, pick up this book! If you don't like it, then you know the whole deal is not for you because everything about the art, the characters, and the tone seem to be exactly perfect for what Conner, Palmiotti, and Hardin are serving up: sheer silliness with a substantial side of savagery.

    Harley Quinn #7 is the best issue of the series so far. It wraps up the current storyline with tons of humor and little shocking violence and great artwork. It's going to be exciting to see where this team takes Harley next. No matter where it is though, fans have plenty of reason to stay on board the crazy train. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 30, 2015

    Bringing this subplot to a close hits at pretty much the right time and it's a completely Harley kind of thing that happened, which fits in a lot of ways. This installment moves well and feels a bit more dense than I expected, but with lots of solid dialogue and excellent artwork and panel layouts, it flows well and the book feels like it's worth the money that you paid for it rather than a quick flipper. The pairing of Harley and Ivy continues to be one of the best things about it, though I'm wary of it being about the two of them on a constant basis, but there's just so much appeal about the dynamic between them that issues with them together just resonate all the more. A solid end to the contract storyline here and lots of silliness and mayhem. Which is what we want. Read Full Review

    I wouldn't mind if Harley Quinn took a page from Deadpool and injected a bit more drama into these comedic misadventures, but at least the book remains enjoyable. Read Full Review

    At least Harley Quinn is still adorable! Conner and Palmiotti have got that spark in spades! At times this series has been a little too wacky, but when they reign it in " like in this issue " the comic is just adorable. And it's adorable in its own special way. A lot of comics are adorable these days, like Ms. Marvel and Lumberjanes, but there's something wickedly playful about Harley Quinn that is uniquely its own. And Poison Ivy is an absolutely wonderful guest star. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 18, 2014

    Harley's story is moving forward. She may get some answers as to who put out a hit on her but that doesn't mean her problems are over. Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti have made this a series where pretty much anything goes. It's always great to see Poison Ivy here but we also see another member of Harley's supporting cast step up to offer assistance. If you've been waiting for some answers, you will get them. Chad Hardin's art is fantastic and the colors by Alex Sinclair and Paul Mounts makes it shine even more. Don't miss out on Harley's crazy adventures. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 23, 2014

    To be honest, any issue that features a plot point of Harley Quinn in her black-and-red flannel jammies too excited to sleep while Poison Ivy gets her a glass of warm milk is an issue that I'm going to be enamoured with, and this issue fulfills that promise. Given my worries about how dark and brutal Harley was at the beginning of the New 52 (Suicide Squad was not a book that seems conducive to the silliness of Harley's character), it's good to see that our hero is still the character that many of us remember her to be. Harley Quinn #7 has some issues with balancing funny and bloody, but is mostly a breezy, fun adventure with lovely art, and a few adventure hooks for future stories, earning a very impressive 4 out of 5 stars overall. I hope Poison Ivy remains in the supporting cast here, because the interactions between these two women really make this issue pop… Read Full Review

    While I continue to enjoy the cartoony slap stick exploits of Harley Quinn, I'm really just wanting a purpose for the character to be where she is.  I know this is her new start and we're experiencing her trying to make it in a world away from Gotham, but we seem to be just going through the motions, and not getting anywhere.  I don't know if that makes sense, I just think I need more out of this book.  A lot of people are comparing this series to Marvel's Deadpool which I also enjoy but something about this series seems to be lacking in regard to that kind of comparison.  Maybe Harley Quinn just needs a little more time to find it's place, and I'll continue to keep reading to see if it does, because like I said in the beginning it is fun, and I guess if that's all you're looking for this is the perfect escape for you.

    Some people might cry foul at some of the twists in this book, particularly the way that Ivy saves the day more than Harley herself, or some of the abruptness in the scenes featuring Tony, Harley's Danzig-inspired tenant. But, to use the "New Girl" reference again, Harley Quinn has become somewhat of an ensemble piece now, where readers should be coming in for the whole family - Ivy, Tony, even Bernie the Taxidermied Beaver. Some people won't like them, and they'll leave. Others will like the whole package, and they'll stay. Even if it's an imperfect read, even the attempt at humor makes this comic a rare commodity in the otherwise ultra-serious New 52. It may be an acquired taste, but would you ever really expect Harley Quinn to fit anyone else's standards? Read Full Review
