    Yet another strong issue from the creative team. Sebela writes an interesting story, with characters that are easy to relate to. The artwork is great in this issue as well. I thoroughly enjoyed the comic and look forward to where the story goes next. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Jun 20, 2018

    Harley Quinn (2016-) #44 is a solid issue; Harley Quinn kicks some serious butt while working through her own personal issues. Sebela and Andolfo craft a well plotted conclusion to Harley Quinn's tale of two cults. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 20, 2018

    Everything wraps up neatly in this low-stakes story about Harley Quinn's tendency to rush to judgment. Long-time fans of Gotham City might enjoy seeing some of its key players operating in New York, though in a very minor way. But that Bilquis Evely cover, though! Whew! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Jun 20, 2018

    Christopher Sebela finishes one of his own turns by wrapping up this two-part tale in which Harley fights mobs of maniacs and takes on two villains of varying degrees of insanity. The big question is Harley's own degree of crazy. In the past we've seen a balance of the psychiatrist and psychopath, but those scales may be going out of kilter if her behavior in this issue is any indicator! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Jun 21, 2018

    A continuation in the subtly different direction of Harley Quinn, there remains a lot to like about this book of DCs most popular and colourful anti-hero! Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Soozee Carmichael Jun 27, 2018

    I was expecting so much more from this issue. They could have gone a million different ways after last week, and I feel like it just fell a little short of where it should have ended. We've had some great Harley stories, and this one wasn't bad, it just wasn't as good as many of the others we've had lately. Also, Professor Pyg is a horrible monster that I really really disliked.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 20, 2018

    Overall, this arc isn't likely to stick in my mind once Sam Humphries jumps on board to take Harley to space, but it's an amusing diversion that serves its purpose to give Harley fans a quick, chaotic arc in between big runs. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Jun 20, 2018

    Unfortunately, it seems as though Harley has no intentions on taking her necessary doses. As such, the ending is a bit of a letdown. For a while, Harley has been going back and forth on needing her friends and not needing them. She pushes people away, but when they inevitably come back, she's delighted to see them. It makes sense for her slightly schizophrenic personality, but at a certain point, you just want her to pick one side or the other. At least Frank and June got a date out of this whole ordeal.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 11, 2019

    I like Harley Quinn as a character and have read her in a lot of books over the years but the drop-in I've done into this batch of issues just isn't clicking for me. There doesn't feel like there's a bigger focus at work and it's just kind of meandering and doing one-off bits that aren't interesting at all. Andolfo's artwork is great and I love her take on the title character and everyone else as well, but there's little here beyond that as it's filled with dark backgrounds and large shadowed rooms. This'll be a title I'll rotate out of interest and look for something else to get into instead. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Nicole Drum Jun 20, 2018

    The real threat that seemed so promising before feels too much like it was forgotten and by the time the arc ends, it's all so unsatisfying and lackluster that you can't help but wonder what the point was at all. Read Full Review

    Run of the mill conclusion to a 2-parter but much better than part 1 was. There was good art and a feel good ending. The Reaper was more entertaining than the superparanoia the plotpitch was trying to dump on Harley. Good-bye Frank and June, have a good life but don't come back.

    If for some reason you wanted to see love blossoming between an Ed Sheeran wannabe and a reject from Death's Scream Bloody Gore album cover, now you have a chance. If not, you won't find a good reason to pick up this issue other than its variant cover.
    Because yes, as usual, the only interesting thing about Harley's comics, is the album cover - you can count on Frank Cho. Other than that, the issue suffers from the very same flaws as any of its post Dini/Timm predecessors: overuse of Brooklyn accent, boring and uninspired plot, unfunny jokes, bland and forgettable characters and shallow, Deadpool-like violence. I already pointed them out one by one while covering previous issues, so there's really no point to do the same thing over and more
