    This issue did everything needed for a nice conclusion. Harley's crew is back together and ready for the next adventure. The Batman villains will likely return to Gotham, and we can just sit back and enjoy the insanity that is certain to be Old Lady Harley. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Apr 5, 2018

    Overall another good issue of Harley Quinn – solid, interesting art makes up for a slightly predictable wrap-up to this story arc which has nevertheless been entertaining throughout. A cameo by Condiment King at the end is truly fun and cool! Harley fans are well serviced at the moment with this fortnightly title! Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a fine conclusion to the "Angry Bird" story arch. With Harley back in her old stomping grounds, with her crew back in toll and a lesson well-learnt. That she can't do what she does alone. Read Full Review

    Harley is generally not conventional in her approach to problems but this issue shows that we all need a helping hand from time to time. I always love when the artist show's a versus panel showcasing the entire team vs. team. You can almost see everyone ready to fight it out! Read Full Review

    Tieri's run has mostly been enjoyable so far, if not really a standout. He finishes up next issue with "Old Lady Harley", which should be suitably bizarre. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Apr 6, 2018

    My onlyissue with this issue is the artwork. Inaki Mirandas work feature some of themanic rendering one might expect from a book about an anti-hero with emotionalissues. But it also has a certain wild, careless style that is not myparticular cup of Earl Gray. I prefer a tighter, more economical line style,but thats just me. Moritat illustrated the latter portion of the book, and as much as I enjoy his retro-style, I'm not Harley Quinn is the best place for it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 4, 2018

    An unsatisfying ending wraps up this muddled story arc, whose main result seems to be a changing of hot dog purveyors on Coney Island. The quips are still there, and might be worth a read for the Harley Quinn fanatic. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Cat Wyatt Apr 4, 2018

    I'm still really not happy with Harley's latest look. I swear it was even worse in this issue " she looks more and more like a goth Barbie than the original Harley first introduced. I'm not saying change is bad, but in this particular case, I don't think the character migration was really needed. Her looks are matching her personality-less and less, which is a shame. Everything else in this issue, art-wise, was great, so I guess I can't complain too much. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Apr 4, 2018

    Harley Quinn continues to struggle with tone and direction issues under the new team of Frank Tieri and his band of merry artists (in this case Moritat and Inaki Miranda). For all her popularity, Harley is a hard character to write. Go too far into silliness and the book becomes frivolous throw-away Looney-Tunes. Go too far into the gore and it becomes Deadpool with pigtails. Neither really showcases what Harley can be as a character; she really needs a delicate balance of sweet and crazy to work. While the "Angry Bird" storyline struggled to achieve that, it had moments, so here's hoping the next arc will get us a little closer. Read Full Review

    I guess it's this time of month, when I self inflict some pain by reading new issue of Harley's solo series. As usual, it doesn't disappoint to disappoint, and features all the flaws that made the previous chapters so mediocre, if not plain bad: two distinctly different art styles by Inaki Miranda (with all these odd body poses, proportions and facial expressions) and Moritat (looking like an indie book style, but not necesarily in a negative sense. This approach could work, actually - abeit maybe not in Harley's comics), terrible storytelling, bland humor for the most part based on Harley's overrepresented Brooklyn accent gimmick, and generally wasted potential of her character.
