    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Daniela Mendoza Oct 5, 2017

    Fun issue, keeps you on your toes. I love seeing old Arkham villains in this series. The mix of art styles is cool since we see The Suicide Squad style. Its done tastefully. Sort of disturbing at certain points, so that REALLY brings the stakes up. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Oct 5, 2017

    The action is escalating in the Harley for Mayor storyline and with the appearance of Scarecrow, things are coming to a head FAST. The slick, amusing storytelling by Conner and Palmiotti is on display and gorgeous and little character payoffs make this one of the best Harley Quinn issues released this year – and thats saying something!

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Oct 4, 2017

    Mason Macabre aside, I am thoroughly enjoying this completely bonkers arc about Harley running for office in New York. We're seeing a lot of different threads coming together that have been balling up like yarn for a long time now: the corrupt politician, the do-good police chief, the crazy assassin associate to the mayor are just the tip of the iceberg.

    As usual, Harley Quinn did not disappoint. Whether her character has staying power as a standalone story is a whole other debate, but for now, the fun, bubbly and viciously murderous bad girl has a place in my heart, and should have one in your pull list, too. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Patrick Ross Oct 4, 2017

    Harley's initial foray into politics isn't off to a good start, but this arc is. The story is paced well, accomplishes a decent amount, and is a breeze to read. Despite having three (!) separate artists, none of which are series regulars, the artwork never suffers, either. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Oct 4, 2017

    You mightthink that three artists on this issue is a bit much, but when Harley gets awhiff of Scarecrows fear gas, it takes the psychofunkadelic rendering of MikeKaluta to properly convey its trippiness. Good to see him working in comicsagain, however briefly. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Oct 4, 2017

    Im a big fan of Scarecrow, and I was excited to see him enter this arc. I hope he plays a more active role going forward. Its clear his plan was to make Harley freak out in the middle of a debate to make her lose credibility. However, it seems simple enough to explain how she fell victim to fear gas. If anything, it seems like falling victim to Scarecrows antics would make her more sympathetic to the public. Of course, thats assuming there isnt more to Scarecrows plan we havent seen yet...

    The guest villain isn't doing this book any favors, but everything else about the new campaign storyline is going gangbusters for Harley Quinn! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 4, 2017

    A nice issue that creates enough drama to keep me interested. What else do you want in a comic book? How about Tom Derenick drawing psychedelic tormentors and villains? Okay yes, I want that. I want Tom Derenick drawing psychedelic tormentors and villains. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Oct 5, 2017

    Ok so obviously this issue doesnt have a lot of ass-kicking from our girls. What it does have is lots of heart. Many things that point out how much Ivy loves Harley, and how supportive Harleys friends are. Ill forgive the lack of violence that weve grown to love from Harley in this one. Because who doesnt love a classic batman villain appearance? Also the campaign is getting interesting. Pick up this issue at your local comic shop. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Oct 5, 2017

    The comedy bits are really good, but the ending means that we're probably in for something a little more traditional. That's not always this book's strength, but it was a better than average issue. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Konrad Secord-Reitz Oct 5, 2017

    While a gorgeous book with good jokes, great characters, and some real personal moments for Harley, it doesn't quite hit the mark. Read Full Review

    Promising storyline. Nice artists collaboration. The masterplan of Scarecrow is simple and straightforward. The Ivy/Harley vibe was neatly played upon. Geekery Magazine's Chelsea Stanford typed agreeable blurb. The pacing was slow in the middle. The fact that a month of campaigning has passed was undersold. Plus, the pigeon toeing of that evocative -if misplaced- backup into continuity is annoying.
