"RED ROSES" part three! The tension between Harley, Poison Ivy, and Red Tool hits the boiling point! Who's gonna stay - and who's gonna go? And in the backup story, "Harley Loves Joker" part seven, Batman is back on the deranged duo's trail!

    I'm impressed again and again by the constituent quality on Harley Quinn and this issue continues that trend. A very strong entry, pick it up folks! Read Full Review

    A blast of an issue that acts as a microcosm of Harley's character at its core. Read Full Review

    You've heard me say it many times before and it requires repeating: Harley Quinn is one of DC's best. The book is consistently fun, funny, lighthearted and always carries a bit of sass. Hmm…just like Harley Quinn. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jul 6, 2017

    Mason and Madame Macabre have been rescued and Harley Sinn temporarily neutralized, but, as usual with a Harley Quinn comic, that doesn't mean our happy heroine is going to chill through the remainder of the pages of her own book. On the contrary, brace yourselves, because things are always craziest right at that moment when you realize that dinner with a talking goat may be the least weirdest and surprising thing! As usual, stay for the hijinx in the Paul Dini-infused villain's story as well: two treats in one! Both installments feel like bridges to bigger and better things, but you can't go wrong with either of them! Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Jul 6, 2017

    So, as you can tell this issue isnt action-packed. But, it definitely is setting up some awesome stories. The water is getting murky for Spoonsdale. And, Soon Ivy and Red Tool will be helping out Harley. Lets not forget that some conflict could come up between The Joker and Harley in Harley loves Joker. Im fine with story set-ups and waiting for butt-kicking. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jul 5, 2017

    And in ourback-up feature, its a return to the old days, when Harley was partnered withMr. J. Though in this storyline shes keeping a few secrets from him, mostlyconcerning their new digs and all the major renovations shes putting into it. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Noah O'Toole Jul 5, 2017

    A very wordy issue, the story jumps so much from Harley Sinn to the Mayor to Poison Ivy it can be a little overwhelming to read. A lot of the book seemed to consist of Harley Quinn and Goat Boy talking about the diversity of people while riding the subway, which lead to a less action-oriented issue than I had hoped.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jul 5, 2017

    Sometimes Jim Werner of Weird Science DC Comics Dot Com says an issue is "all set-up," and this one really fits the bill. There are four incomplete stories here, all in keeping with long-standing continuity but still ends up being unsatisfying to veteran readers. In firework terms, this comic book is an irregular Sparkler. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jul 6, 2017

    We're probably all starting to sound like a collective broken record here, but it's frustrating that, issue after issue, the main story in Harley Quinn is outshone by the Batman: The Animated Series-inspired backup tale. Read Full Review
