While on a tropical vacation, Harley Quinn is kidnapped by two Female Furies from Apokolips-and they're making her an offer she can't refuse: join the Furies, get super powers and do anything she wants! It's a sweet deal, and all Harley has to do in return is hunt down rogue Fury Petite Tina. The bad news: Petite Tina is anything but petite! Hope that hammer got an upgrade, Harley.

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jul 11, 2018

    As the newest pillar of the DC Universe, Harley deserves the creative attention Humphries and Timms bring to the series. More than just cute pin up pictures and collectibles, Harley has a wholesome demeanor that can bring in readers of all tastes, as long as the work continues to speak for itself. Whether its the love of Harley Quinn or Jack Kirby, the adorable main cover or the stunningly gorgeous Frank Cho Variant cover, or the debut of Sam Humphries promising run with Harley, this issue has something for everyone.

    Harley Quinn works best as a character when she's allowed to simply be herself, and Harley Quinn #45 massively delivers on that front. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - SHAY REVOLVER Jul 4, 2018

    The issue as a whole is brilliantly written, perfectly drawn, expertly colored and doesnt waste an inch of any panel with erroneous information, fluff, or unnecessary silliness. Everything flows into each other so perfectly that they were to have ended the comic a page before they did it would have been a complete story but Im not at all mad that they left us with a little something to look forward to. Even the last page is perfect and pulls us further into the story. Humphries and his art crew do a great job at keeping the reader engaged and making sure that even without words you know this is a Harley story and a good one at that. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Jul 4, 2018

    This issue certainly warrants a read. The idea of Harley Quinn wreaking her own special brand of havoc on Apokolips is definitely intriguing, and I'm looking forward to what the next issues will hold. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jul 4, 2018

    Harley is on Apokolips, and she's fartin' up the fire pits! OK, not really...this is a pretty funny issue that should tickle fans of Jack Kirby's Fourth World especially. Others may be turned off by these Bronze Age trappings, but that's their problem. This definitely feels more like the familiar Harley Quinn of a few months ago. Read Full Review

    This book may just be setup so far, but it's a fun setup, and I highly appreciate that Humphries is putting his own spin on the series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jul 4, 2018

    Ive always wondered how non-powered characters (Harley, Batman, Green Arrow) manage to traverse the lethal terrain of Apokolips. But again, its comic books. Some things are better left alone. But Harleys vacation isnt over yet, so theres more to come. Read Full Review

    Even though I long ago learned Harley's comics offer nothing but cute variant covers by Frank Cho, for some unknown reason I keep wasting my time and money on them. And speaking of covers, this one sure doesn't lie - it is not the 1st issue. It's more of the same, to the point there's barely any difference between creative teams that worked on the series since New 52. Palmiotti, Conner, Tieri, Sebala and now Humphries commit the same mistakes and rely on exactly the same awful gimmicks depraving Harley of any depth and creativity she's got during her Dini/Timm days, and what Sean Murphy understood perfectly in Batman: The White Knight.
    Annoying, oversued accent? Check. Very little jokes that land? Check. General lack of any development more

    The bad: Harley Quinn's characterization remains the more obnoxious one we have come to hate and she is extremely annoying in this issue.

    The good: The concept of Harley becoming a Fury and anything involving Apokolips for fans of New Gods like myself. It is strange but I like the story and hate the character (since Palmiotti)

    Near the end of this, I exclaimed out loud "oh my god, it just keeps going?!". And I think that's indicative of how I feel about this issue.
