It's the grand finale of "Harley vs. Apokolips"! Harley's trapped on Darkseid's homeworld, having failed to become a Female Fury under Granny Goodness' tutelage. Trapped in a "reeducation chamber" that threatens to destroy her free will, Harley must dig deep to throw off the alien shackles and get back to Earth. She just needs to escape a super-max alien prison, fight off a planet full of super-powered psychos, defeat a New God, then steal a spaceship and fly it home. No problem-o!

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Aug 1, 2018

    Harley Quinn #47 is rollercoaster ride through Harley Quinn's mind and out of Apokolips. Writer, Sam Humphries, keeps the pressure on Harley Quinn as she figures out who she is, hero or not. Timms' artwork brings the whole issue together, with intense fight scenes and Harley Quinn's struggle with her inner selves. Read Full Review

    Harley's adventures on Apokolips come to an end in this issue, and while the conclusion is just as bonkers as anything you'd expect from Harley Quinn, there's a serious quality to the way things wrap up with Granny Goodness. Read Full Review

    That changed this issue as, come the end of the comic, I found myself thinking that there wouldn't be anyone else more suited to ending Granny Goodness' badness. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - John Hagmann Aug 1, 2018

    The writing was witty and whimsical while still conveying a sense of importance. Harley seemed to develop a sense of self and a path forward. Additionally, Humphries presents moral dilemmas well despite far-fetched scenarios. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Aug 1, 2018

    Overall, this is a solid issue with plenty of great standout moments. There's also a fantastic cameo toward the end that's better left discovered on your own. With a few laughs and fun action, you just can't go wrong, and this issue certainly delivers. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 1, 2018

    This is the conclusion of the current 3-issue story arc, which is fine with me. In the hurly-burly world of Harley, staying too long in one place only allows the humour to wear thin. It devolves into an SNL skit thats gone on too long. It is best for the writer (whomever it may be) to remember she works best as amoving target. Keeping the audience guessing helps keep things interesting. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 1, 2018

    Timms' artwork is sublime. It's one of the best renderings of the character of Harley Quinn I have seen and Timms does a great job of framing a panel both for comedy and action with some incredible exaggerated action panels. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Aug 1, 2018

    Harley Quinn reverts to form and saves the day, but not without a lot of silliness and violence along the way. This story, which sounded ridiculous when first solicited, wound up being a lot of fun. This just goes to show, you can't judge a comic book by its solicit. Strangely, you can judge a comic book by its cover. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Aug 5, 2018

    This is an enjoyable conclusion to Humphries' first arc on the title. While I don't care for the meta jokes because they seem too random to me, I think Humphries has certainly demonstrated that he has a good feel for Harley's voice and I appreciate that there is at least some focus on her character development.

    Why am I even doing this to myself? That is reading these abominations of comics?
    I love what Harley used to be before she was ruined by the New-52 reboot, and absolutely loathe what she was ever since. Rebirth fixed plenty of issues, and with Harl, they were purely cosmetic - she's got blonde locks back, so at least she looks right, but underneath she's still the same unfunny, annoying, and painfully stupid Deadpool clone.
    The entire New Gods arc could have been decent - there's some genuine potential in it, but with no good comedy and jokes that would actually land, and most importantly with no heart, it's all in vein.
    Get Sean Murphy, Bruce Timm and Paul Dini to write Harley's comics, or anyone who actually understands the more
