It's Fury vs. Fury in a furious showdown! Harley's tasked with bringing in Petite Tina - except, turns out, the reason she failed as a Fury is that she's not furious enough! She's kind, good-hearted and oppressed - and now Harley's the one oppressing her. Harley's caught between a rock and a hard place: give up her amazing superpowers and free Tina and the other oppressed Lowlies, or keep bashing stuff with a super-hammer and having fun. What's a girl to do?

    Overall I am enjoying this run ofHarley Quinn. I look forward to reading what kind of crazy chaos she gets up to on Apokolips. Personally, I just hope it doesn't drag on too long, and that she gets back down to Earth. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jul 27, 2018

    Humphries and Timms display why Harley Quinn is so loved and adored by so many fans, new and old, while also bringing her closer to the rest of the respective universe. This run is off to a promising start, as Harley continues her romp on Apokolips, earning the respect of readers and on the verge of subjugation to Darkseids will. Read Full Review

    Let's just say that it doesn't look like Harley's taking the next flight off Apokalips any time soon, and I don't mind " this is the most entertaining the book's been in a long time. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Jul 18, 2018

    Another solid Harley Quinn issue, Humphries creates a great pace in the issue between action and information weaving in plenty of Harley Quinn's over-the-top personality. Timms visualization of Apokolips has a kind of vintage video game feel, with its vibrant colors and interesting settings. Read Full Review

    That's Entertainment - Ash Jul 23, 2018

    Is it my favorite Harley story? No, but it is one of the best multi-issue arcs I have seen all year. Paul Dini's 'Harley Loves Joker' fell flat. Issues #43 & #44 lost it's steam before it was wrapped up. Simultaneously, Harley is caught up in a spat with the Joker in 'Batman: Prelude to the Wedding'. With all these plot lines, this new issue of Harley Quinn has got momentum to carry it forward, and beyond. Let's see where it goes from here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jul 18, 2018

    Harley's struggling with her first day at Female Fury school, and the results are hilarious. Giving Harley this Fourth World hammer is the best thing to happen to the character since she got that taxidermied beaver that she talks to all the time. Granny Goodness may have met her match.

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Jul 18, 2018

    Harley Quinn #46 was a wild, non-stop ride. Admittedly, I prefer more grounded tales and this story was anything but. Still, the setting didn't stop Humphries and company from adding layers of depth to its titular character. Artistically, the issue was filled with splash pages and action. Yet, it still conveyed a delicate beauty. For my taste, the issue suffered from a lack of breathability. However, it was enjoyable and moved the narrative to an interesting place. I'm intrigued to see where this one goes next! Read Full Review

    Now Harlmust suffer the wrath of her granny. Goodness, its enough to make a girl plotzright there in front of Darkseid and everybody. Never fear. Granny has a gadgetthat will remove any embarrassment, and is all too eager to use it on her failureof a Fury (Hey! Alliteration without a hint of sexism. Yay me. Im evolving.) Read Full Review

    There is a fine line between letting Harley Quinn be herself and turning her into a discount Deadpool, and, unfortunately, Harley Quinn #46 leans a little too hard into the latter. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Jul 18, 2018

    That being said, the saving grace of this issue is the jokes. There are some pretty good one-liners in here. I particularly enjoyed Harley's short recap of the previous issue while she's fighting Petite Tina. Now that Harley's against Granny Goodness, hopefully we can start seeing a little more action and conflict. Read Full Review

    It's not strictly a bad comic, but it certainly leaves much to be desired in terms of strong characters and a convincing villain. Read Full Review

    Nihilist Jul 18, 2018

    There's a golden rule with Harley's comics - if the first panel she opens her mouth contains forced Brooklyn accent, so obnoxious and overused since New 52 started, the entire issue will most likely suck. You can call it the Nihilist's law, which this issue proves, just like its predecessors.

    It's bad, and honestly I hate to hate it, because despite me loathing Harley Quinn comics, I love the character. I mean, aside from her New 52 redesign, but that's a different story.

    Humphries tries to sneak some sad moments here and there to give Harley some personality she clearly lacks these days, but it feels flat and bland compared to, for example, Paul Dini's Kind of Like Family, specifically its last few, bittersweet, pages more
