"Red Roses" part two! Poison Ivy's back in town, and she'd like to patch up the friendship with Harley that she damaged in the Bahamas...but sadly for poor Mr. Tool, Ivy's got some strong opinions on his courtship of Harley! And in "Harley Loves Joker" part six, Harley's sure she's got a foolproof plan to get back in Mistah J's good graces, but when have Harley's plans ever ended up the way she imagined?

    I hope DC has picked up on how much fun this book is. Great characters, great fights, great art and a great backup easily makes this one of the company's most enjoyable titles. Read Full Review

    This was a solid issue, start to finish with a glimpse of the past in two separate ways! It's a great time and Harley fans will love it! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jun 21, 2017

    The main Harley Quinn line continues on its complicated way, telegraphing a showdown between Harley and the mayor (we all know it's coming), but the bus ride to that battle is clearly fraught with potholes along the way and the addition of Harley Sinn is the most interesting one yet. This character started out utterly hateable, but seem to be turning an important corner. Meanwhile, Harley still loves the Joker and if you have been missing out on this secondary story, shame on you because it is just fabulous fun and deserves a book of its own! All comics should be this good. Read Full Review

    With the recent addition of the one and only Paul Dini to team Harley Quinn, (along with Bret Blevins on pencils and J. Bone inking) on we are blessed with a second story at the end of each issue with Harley loves Joker, a throwback to the original nineties version of our favorite clown girl and her beloved Puddin. Grown up kids of the era will feel nothing but nostalgia, practically tasting the otter pops as they flip through pages of this rare gift of a story. Read Full Review

    Every page of Harley Quinn is unpredictable. From dream-sequences to Harley fist-fighting in the buff, every page is full of surprises. Obscure characters and a strong (and hilarious) supporting cast make this book a fun and unique read every issue. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Jun 22, 2017

    So, not a lot of action happens in our main story arch, but we get lots of information. Its always cute and fun to learn more about Harleen. And, it sets up some crazy stuff for the next issue. Harley loves Joker is cute, funny, and charming in its own way as always. I really havent disliked anything in this DC Rebirth Harley Quinn run. All of the writers are finally giving Harley Quinn fans what they want with this. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Jun 22, 2017

    Another good, solid issue of Harley Quinn " after all the buildup the introduction of Harley's parents got off to a slow-burner but satisfying start. The storyline went fast and was slight but amusing. Doubtless the stakes will heighten as we walk deeper into the story. The Dini/Palmiotti collaboration in the back took the glow in this issue " always strong, the side story really sing this issue. Run don't walk and grab your Harley Quinn fix from your local comic book shop! Read Full Review

    A new storyline kicks off in the usual style, this one promising to be character-focused, which is always a favorite of mine. Read Full Review

    If it wasn't for the classic Harley backup, this issue wouldn't be on our reading list. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 21, 2017

    It turns out that a visit from Harley Quinn's parents is a lot like a visit from my parents, except less critical of my hygiene. This issue felt disjointed and like it didn't know what it wanted to be about. There's a few good gags, but not enough cohesive story. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jun 21, 2017

    Its thestart of a new plotline from Palmiotti & Conner. While Ive been criticalof their SNL-skit-that-goes-on-too-long qualities, I must give them credit forkeeping their story arcs relatively short and tolerable. Writing for the trade?Fuggediboutit! Read Full Review

    Missing vital story threads and presenting a plodding issue that feels mostly like filler, Harley Quinn #22 is easily skippable. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jun 21, 2017

    The only saving grace of this issue was Bret Blevins' back-up art. In all other respects, the issue was dull and boring, presenting storylines that aren't interesting in the slightest while ignoring plot beats ripe for awesome stories that can be a lot of fun. Read Full Review
