    Harley Quinn's anniversary edition is a wonderful culmination of the history of Quinn and gives the reader a view of her current life. This issue would be a fantastic jumping on point because it will give everyone a glimpse of her friends and allies. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Heather Joy Aug 9, 2017

    “Harley Loves Joker” continues to be a delicious dose of nostalgia, getting stronger every issue. Its a little on the lighter side, adding a much appreciated coat of sugar to the somewhat darker portrayal of the Harley/Joker pairing that we remember from the animated series. Its easy to find yourself looking forward to this Paul Dini addition just as much to the regular story each issue. Its a delight. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Aug 9, 2017

    Well, our main story arc has been building up for quite a few issues. Not just the conflict between Harley and Madison, but the surprise party for Harley as well. Everything was executed very well. Plot points came together in both story arcs, and cameos from some of our favorite villains and heroes is always a plus. DC Rebirth continues its streak of strong plot points, humor, and bloody action. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Aug 10, 2017

    Conner and Palmiotti and Dini kill it in the writing for both stories in this celebratory 25th issue, and Chad Hardin's art brings back some series nostalgia for its early days. There's so much detail in this book and all of it is delightful and terrifying in turns. Both stories come to very dramatic peaks, so this is certainly a nail-biter of an issue, but in the best of all possible ways! Don't just pick this up because it will be a collectors' issue one day; pick it up because it's a joy to read! Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Aug 10, 2017

    Chad Hardin's return to Harley Quinn means that the opening story of the comic finally looks as strong as the backup story. Hardin's excellent character work and visual humor make this issue, but it can't do too much with the lead feature. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 9, 2017

    We don't get the rundown of dangling storylines in this issue, as we had in the last few, but this issue is still a non-starter. It could be a set up for some really funny dialogue, but precious little is to be found. Someone stick a fork in this series already. It's done. Read Full Review
