When Harley Quinn finds herself hammer-deep in a paranoid spiral, the last thing she needs is for someone to blow up her favorite bodega! Worse, the only clue she finds seems to indicate Harley herself was the actual target of the attack! What's a girl to do when she's pushed all her friends away just as someone decides to kill her?

    I loved this issue ofHarley Quinn and look forward to Sebela's run on the comic. The story is fantastic. The artwork is beautiful and compliments the writing style perfectly. All round this is an excellent read, I would recommend you pick this up now. I can only imagine how good the next few are going to be! Read Full Review

    Overall, it's a fun issue to open a new arc. It still leaves a lot of questions unanswered, and I have to admit: I kind of miss Harley hanging out with her pals. Granted, she has Bernie the Beaver with her, but he's mostly there as a voice of reason. Read Full Review

    A darker, more somber take on the Harley mythos, which pushes this title into exciting and slightly confronting regions. Overall this is a bold tun for the Harley Quinn title – watch this space to see how it develops! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 6, 2018

    Modern Harley Quinn is back in the saddle, and she's out of her gourd. Just the way we like it. Unfortunately, that alone doesn't make for a very compelling story, and this feels like a paceholder for the actual story that commences next issue. Ah well, that's what you get when you double-ship a comic book. Read Full Review

    The issue raises some interesting questions for next issue, but on its own, it didn't really grab me yet. Read Full Review

    Harley said it best, "Ya want the good crazy? Well, this is the ugly crazy that comes with it." Harley Quinn #43 was a bit of the bad crazy. It was a mess. But, the mess was endearing in ways, just like its titular character. Here's hoping the next issue brings more of the good crazy. Read Full Review

    While not a title that has been on my pull list, I really enjoyed reading Harley's adventures and have to admit, I really want to know where the story goes next. I'll be checking out next issue for part 2 ofOne of My Turns. Read Full Review

    The artwork byMirka Andolfo is enjoyable, more so than that of cover artist John Timms. Notthat hes a bad artist, but I dont believe Harley Quinn was a suitable vehiclefor him. Id prefer to see him on another title; Batwoman, perhaps. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn continues to be a character that I like but that I struggle with. I do find her better in an ensemble and often in the various non-continuity series as her time in Bombshells and other projects have been regularly fun and interesting. Sebela has the start of a storyline off to a decent start here but I felt a bit disconnected from Harley from the start and couldn't quite get on the same page with her, even as I enjoyed some of the antics. The big win for me here was just a full book of great Mika Andolfo artwork. It simply looks fantastic and has such a sense of fun and energy about it that each panel was a treasure to take in with all of its detail and design. That alone made it worthwhile. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jun 6, 2018

    Christopher Sebela continues the recent trend of keeping the Queen of Quinn relatively untethered from her Coney Island gang in this new storyline that features a hallucinating Harley, a curious new ally, and he promise of some potentially intriguing villains. But it feels like mostly promise and very little payoff for the moment. Read Full Review

    There's no way to put this other than bluntly: Harley Quinn #43 is a mess. Read Full Review

    You know what's the point of changing the creative team behind a dying comic? Fixing it, and making it appealing once again. When Brian Michael Bendis took over Superman last month, the change in tone and storytelling was immediate - and that's great, I appreciate a new direction for the character, and for now Bendis did nothing to make me not like his work at DC. But then, there's Harley - ruined by the New 52 reboot, and never properly fixed. Rebirth changed her atrocious looks, but personality and story wise, she remained exactly the same mess she was turned into in 2011, missing the best possible chance to course-correct her solo series.

    Palmiotti and Conner proudly continued it instead, and no surprise, derailed it complete more

    So close, yet so far. I liked that Harley was considerably less annoying in this issue, but it still struggled to deliver anything but a passable read.
