"FUTURE KILL" part one! You've seen her story begin to unfold in prior issues...who in the world is Bat-Fan, and why does she think Harley Quinn must die to save existence itself?! And in the backup story "Harley Loves Joker" part four, Harley's mistakes have forced her to hide out with The Joker in a low-rent motel...unfortunately, they've had to bring their entire goon squad-and a pack of very poorly behaved hyenas-along!

    This issue is fantastic, fluid, and fun. Packed with laughs, punches, teddies, and dog shit, it is a fun ride! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn May 18, 2017

    Another great issue of Harley Quinn. Is this the best Rebirth title? It's up there with Greg Rucka's Wonder Woman or Detective Comics, swinging for a completely different set of fences. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinncontinues to be one of, if not THEE, funnest titles on DC's lineup. Our main character is a blast. The side characters are fun. And the plots aren't too complex and move along at a brisk pace. Oh, and the backup is written by Paul Dini. If you're not on board, this is the perfect time to jump in. Read Full Review

    This entire rebirth of Harley Quinn has been amazing. The story keeps going in great directions. Harley is very well developed. And, Im in love with the Harley Loves Joker tales as well. Any Harley fan will appreciate this series. This issue was filled with a good balance of plot and action. Im excited for where the stories are headed. Read Full Review

    Come for the carnage stay for the cuddles. Harley's got big trouble on her horizon as a convergence of family, past problems, and future follies threaten to undermine what little might be left of her sanity. Meanwhile, the Palmiotti/Dini "Joker Loves Harley" feature of this week's issue is the whole reason a cult of Joker & Harley even exists in the world today. Even with both of these stories only being half the pages of a full book, the buck/bang ratio on Harley Quinn seems incapable of disappointing. Read Full Review

    A new arc kicks off explosively, and multiple simmering plot threads should finally start to pay off. Read Full Review

    Jimmy and Amanda hit their stride with Harley Quinn and have managed to keep the pace. This is the start of a new story arc and is a great place for new readers to jump on. In fact, any issue of Harley Quinn is probably okay to jump on - as arguably DC's most popular female character this book highlights the comedic side of comic books with plenty of risqu jokes and adult content that make it a fun easy read,but definitely not kids'stuff!

    The Brazen Bull - Evan Kiick May 17, 2017

    While I enjoyed Harley Quinn #20, I didn't get enough of anything. The back feature cuts the issue in half and then the remaining half is split up amongst three different stories. It feels more like I read the condensed pitch for an issue instead of the issue itself Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway May 17, 2017

    This begins an arc I've been waiting for, and maybe the anticipation was too great on my end. All the nuts and bolts of comic bookery are in place, it was just a slow starter. I think this story could go places, and I hope it gets there sooner rather than nine dollars from now. Read Full Review

    The backup tale is by far the best part of the book. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti May 17, 2017

    This issue falls flat with the little story it provides, and what story it does provide simply isn't interesting or hasn't since the beginning, such as Harley Sinn's whole job. The art change bugged me a little too. Read Full Review
