"108 MILLION WAYS TO DIE!" Even though she hates to leave Coney Island as it rebuilds after the zombie apocalypse, Harley must set out on a journey that will take her around the world-and into the clutches of a bizarre robotic enemy! Too bad her Mecha-Harley suit didn't fit in the overhead bin...

    For the Ivy-Harley shippers, of which this reviewer is very much on board with, Harley does make a one panel reference to Ivy and her "excuses" for not moving in, and Harley feels that maybe she has been pushing her too hard. She looks forward to their vacation, so let's hope it happens shippers, they truly are one of the best relationships in comics. I feel confident we will see this issue play out. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Sep 27, 2016

    As we said, it does make some bold choices on where the story winds up – and the finale does feel a little bit weak compared to the mammoth journey she makes to get there. Maybe we were expecting something a little more grandiose after a giant robot, but that's just us. Harley Quinn #4 is a fun issue that has no problem embracing the bizarre and the eccentric to help create a truly unique series for the Clown Princess of Crime. Although how they're going to top the craziness of the past 4 issues is beyond us. Aliens, zombies and giant robots… what's next? Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 24, 2016

    Harley Quinn #4 is the height of Harley lunacy. She travels all over the world in the span of a single issue just to pursue her own insane, but heroic, agenda. I like when Harley Quinn throws in some legit drama, but madcap adventures are fun too. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Sep 21, 2016

    It's a one-off issue after an opening story arc! Do my eyes deceive me? You mean this won't be unnecessarily padded with meaningless scenes and overwrought dialogue? Hooray! And I'll tell you, this issue is chock-full of stuff, all done in the name of justice! And sometimes hot dogs. This is a real solid issue in the series, and I do hope we see more single-story issues to break up the formula a little. If ever there were a book to do that, it's Harley Quinn. Read Full Review

    Do you like your Harley stories straight-up crazy? Because "108 Million Ways to Die" qualifies. In her attempt to "do good" and render her life meaningful, Harley takes her nutsy sense of justice to Mumbai (and then Moscow) to mete out punishment to thieves who have hurt her patients and countless others. It's a bit of lunacy tinged with schadenfreude: so all-in-all, I'd say pretty typical amusing Harley fare. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Patrick Ross Sep 21, 2016

    Harley Quinn #4 does what this series does best: it puts you in the passenger seat to observe a day in the insane life of Harley Quinn, from eating possibly alien-infected hot dogs to battling mechanical baddies in Mumbai. The pacing may not appeal to everyone, but if you've been enjoying Conner and Palmiotti's take on Quinn thus far, you'll continue to enjoy it here. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Sep 21, 2016

    Despite the script taking some leaps forward at times,Harley Quinn#4 tells a very good one-off story. I'm not sure if this will play into the larger scheme of things, but it's quite rare Conner and Palmiotti let ideas go to waste or leave plot threads hanging. Although this will be awarded a slightly lower score than previous issues, it's still one of the safest ways to spend $2.99 this week. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Konrad Sep 21, 2016

    Overall, Harley Quinn #4 has some frank discussion, some great humor, and a funny scene that is a small commentary on call centers. You'll enjoy this issue and like me, you won't be sure why. Read Full Review

    It's still wacky and entertaining in the series' familiar way, but the plot could have been structured much more efficiently. Read Full Review

    Pop Culture Uncovered - Adam Frey Sep 21, 2016

    There's some pretty art by Joe Linser (and where's he been lately, anyway?), but this book is playing the "self-aware" thing too hard to notice its own structural flaws. Read Full Review
