    This series is great and already has so much to work with. Taking a character like Harley Quinn and making a book about just her would sound like a hard task normally. Does one make her a villain? a good guy in her own mind? The way the writers have approached this character is simply amazing, and it's pretty much the reason I subscribed to it. Harley's not out for blood in the issue, but she certainly does a bang up (get it) job dealing with the zombies. It fits the action and wackiness we've come to expect with Harley these days and it makes its' case well for the potential one can see in it. It's one of the more unique Rebirth titles since it doesn't have a triumphant return or dark return. It's just a zany little title, which suits me just fine. Harley is back with a bang, and it's safe to say that'll continue right into issue 3! Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn #2 provides such a wonderful detour from the seriousness of most of the other rebirth titles. The flavor of this book is like a bright sour candy that brings joy to your heart and a smile to your face. You can't have a bad day and read Harley Quinn. I dare you to try. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 17, 2016

    The plot thickens into a viscous paste as zombies continue to run willy-nilly all over Coney Island. An attempt to capture one lands Harley in the middle of the fray, but a surprise by an old friend might just turn the tables! Or it might result in Zombie Harley, we'll have to see next issue. John Timms picks up art duties for the second half of the issue, and provides some incredible, dynamic splash pages that are practically worth the cover price alone. It's the poop jokes that give it full value. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Aug 17, 2016

    The re-read value on this book is in appreciating the depth and craziness of the artwork from Bret Blevins, Chad Hardin, and John Timms on this one. There's a lot going on in the big splashy action sequences (which constitute the majority of this book), and so many details worth lingering on. Harley Quinn is always a fantastic example of how to make the most of conventional comic book storytelling: the marriage of wit and whimsy in both the writing and the images elevate this book beyond mere eye-candy or fan service, and Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti always seem to find the balance between cheesy treacle and gross-out goodness–without devolving into totally brainless boobery. Long-term consistent quality like this is a rare and marvelous thing. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Aug 17, 2016

    While the horror is real, there's still a lot of fun to be had thanks to the titular character. The tone reminds me more of Zombieland or Dead Rising as opposed to Resident Evil or Dawn of the Dead. The DNA of what we have come to expect from a Harley Quinn story by way of these creators remains, so hopefully the charm isn't lost on new readers who weren't expecting a zombie tale to kickoff the new volume.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Aug 17, 2016

    Harley Quinn #2 is a fun issue. It suffers in a few areas for sure, but it was a fun time like it always is. If you are just looking for a wild ride that won't require a lot of depth or thinking, this is the comic for you. Hopefully you're not tired of zombies yet. Read Full Review

    If you can’t seem to get enough of Harley Quinn in the Suicide movie, then you definitely need to pick up this issue. Its pure crazy Harley goodness and you wont be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Aug 19, 2016

    The series will no doubt be discovered by its previous audience quickly " the Rebirth behemoth cannot be stopped! " and I'm sure said readers will be relieved at the series' consistency in both writing and art. Though the crude and immature humor, combined with zombie-killin'-violence, may not be everyone's cup of tea, the series is committed to its silliness and never deviates from its irreverence or its jubilant (if gross) sense of humor. Best of all, it's not shy about the tangible love of its eponymous anti-heroine. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 17, 2016

    Given how cluttered and poorly paced the previous volume of Harley Quinn could be at times, there's something to be said for the more simple, straightforward approach this relaunch is taking. Issue #2 isn't particularly deep, but it offers plenty of entertainment value as Harley and friends fend off the ravenous undead. It's just a shame the series is already relying on fill-in art. Maybe the switch to the twice-monthly schedule wasn't the best move? Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kaleb Hebert Aug 17, 2016

    The artwork was solid like the first issue. A lot of vivid colors and textures. The fights were displayed very well with excellent detail. I am not surprised that the art is solid, the entire first was excellent. To me, it is what really gives this issue the interest that would keep a reader interested. The dialogue was dry while the art was exquisite. I am looking forward to seeing what the artists do in the next few issues. If the dialogue matched the art this would be a good contender every other week for one of the better DC issues. Without the consistency in writing, this Harley Quinn series just falls short of being a good read. All in all, I would recommend reading this issue, but I don't think it is quite worth the $2.99 selling price. Read Full Review

    With the exposition out of the way, there's a little more time to focus on story"except for multiple splash pages which, despite the pretty art, is once again heavy on exposition. Read Full Review
