    Harley Quinn #28 is another knockout issue from a knockout team. Palmiotti and Conner show us why we fell in love with Harley Quinn 25 years ago, and how she'll be just as popular 25 years from now. Vibrant, tough and fun,Harley Quinn is easily one of DC's bright spots. Read Full Review

    I have really been looking forward to this issue, and Im excited to see what Harley plans on doing. Right before her big announcement, she did murder a bunch of people. They were criminals, but Im expecting DePerto to bring Harleys body count into contention. Im also interested in seeing if the following issues draw on real world events, like the 2016 election, to provide commentary on how politics are conducted in the real world. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Patrick Ross Sep 20, 2017

    Harley Quinn gets back to the task at hand in issue #28 as Harley makes her campaign official. With a unique angle, great writing and a tantalizing cliffhanger, this story arc is headed in the best possible direction. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Sep 21, 2017

    Amanda Conner's beautiful cover alone is a selling point for this issue which will kick off Harley's race for the mayor's office. But the innards in this book are fun too, as always. Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti balance a somewhat cracky caper with further plot advancements concerning Harley's ongoing way with the corrupt and terrible Mayor DePerto! So get ready to hit the campaign trail because this is apt to be as wild a ride as Harley ever could hope for! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Sep 21, 2017

    Always a strong character with a strong sense of identity, the continued evolution of the character since the New 52 into Rebirth has been one of the best things to happen at DC. The bid for Mayor is certain to be both rocky and wildly entertaining for both the long term and newer Harley fans. This truly is a book to look out for every fortnight! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 23, 2017

    This new story has a lot of potential, and I'm excited based on the fun and hijinks in this issue. But the last page reveal of a surprise villain was a letdown. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Bill Bodkin Sep 21, 2017

    Well, I think Harley has a good chance of winning. I'm sure the citizens of New York have no clue what their current mayor is into. But, Harley's past and present are an open book. She's been hailed as a hero in the media multiple times, and Cobblepot is mayor in a different DC world. So, anything is possible. Harley Quinn continues to be a fun and entertaining read.

    Love the art, and it is a funny story. Its a great opening to the rest of the arc, just nothing really crazy happened. Thats how it is for most beginnings though. One thing is for sure, Id definitely vote for Harley! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Sep 20, 2017

    After an issue's journey into the mind of Frank Tieri, and a 25th Anniversary issue that had nothing to do with the current plot, we return to our regularly-scheduled programming for Harley Quinn, and it feels pretty good. The narrative stays on task while Harley ties up a few loose ends before she enters a public life. How she ties up those loose ends is pure Harley Quinn. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Sep 20, 2017

    After abreak of the past issue or two, the team that creates the Harley series is backin form, clicking on all cylinders. It may not the wacky Harley Quinn we mayhave come to expect, but entering the political arena could just be theenvironment for this former Joker moll to flourish. Especially given theage-old axiom, Power corrupts. After all, its not like Harley has far to go. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Sep 21, 2017

    As much as I loved the "Harley Loves Joker" backup stories, the main Harley Quinn title has been improved since it no longer has to fight for space in its own book. Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner have been able to write full-length stories again, and the extended page count has helped the story feel less inconsequential. Read Full Review
