Harley and failed Female Fury Petite Tina go road-tripping! With their lives a roaring dumpster fire, Harley and Tina decide to get out of town for a mini-vacay, and wind up driving each other crazy instead. An unplanned detour leads them to run afoul of a new baddie called Minor Disaster, whose so-called "Disaster Dial" only causes small calamities such as texting your ex and pooping your pants. Harley and Tina must now put their differences aside to stop Minor Disaster before she spells disaster for them both!

    I feel like I dote on this series so much but to be fair it has been able to draw me in like few have. Each book is seriously a joy to read. If one character has been getting the justice due her this year, it's Harley. From the covers, to the side stories, she has had a year to beat all and I have no complaints. 10 out of 10 fully and easily earned. I am so excited for the Christmas issue!Images courtesy of DC Entertainment Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Jaimee Nadzan Nov 21, 2018

    Harley Quinn (2016-) #54 pushes Harley closer to hero status as she flexes her diplomatic muscles, putting aside her personal arsenal. Sam Humphries adds depth to the character with a test of mind for Harley Quinn, showing off Harley's character development. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 21, 2018

    Equal parts social media satire and a surprisingly deep musing on getting out from under a terrible parental figure, Harley Quinn #54 is another strong installment in Sam Humphries' excellent run. Read Full Review

    Lucas Werneck's art is great in this issue. His art complements the tone of the story and works brilliantly with the plot and dialogue. Read Full Review

    An entertaining conclusion to the Minor Disaster arc, Humphries and Co are in fine touch on the Harley Quinn title. This run is improving at a steady pace. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 28, 2018

    Humphries seems to be centering the story a bit less on the title character. This being said, Harley is trying to figure out who she really is. As she searches for her own identity after supervillainy, theres added depth in Humphries focus on the lives of others she comes into contact with. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Nicholas Osborn Dec 6, 2018

    Harley Quinn #54 is far from boring, with plenty of family drama and action-packed devastation, but it loses some of the core aspects of Harleys character in all of the developments. Despite this, there are some important and defining moments for Harley that fans will be interested in. Read Full Review

    It's a lovely read, and it's even nicer to see Harley continue to evolve in a real and meaningful way. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Dec 3, 2018

    Im sure itcould be fun story, viewed through the proper lens. I just dont happen to haveone. There are too many story elements taken for granted, in my opinion. But infairness, a broader canvas (i.e., more pages) might have enabled Sam Humphriesto flesh them out more, perhaps provide a more ambitious alternative. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 21, 2018

    I don't know what Sam Humphries wants this book to be but it is just unfunny and boring.  Harley seems lost in her own book and no character, whether old or new has enough personality to make anything here worth reading.  I am a Harley fan.  I am not a fan of this book. Read Full Review

    DC, you can do better than this for one of your greatest creations. A female writer, perhaps? All proper respect to Mr. Humphries, he does not seem to understand why we all love Harleen Quinzel. Maybe Gail Simone? I can dream... lol

    Well, I didn't care for this issue, but I loved seeing Major Disaster so offended by a challenge by Guy Gardner.

    Why would anyone have any hopes for this issue? Its cover features Harley with a selfie stick in her hand, which perfectly sums up how bad this comic will be. It's like the LJN rainbow logo on old NES games, or Activision/2K/EA logos on modern ones. You instantly know what you're dealing with. A turd.

    And while the comic itself fulfilled my expectations, or the exact opposite of any to be precise, I gotta say, it was slightly better than the previous one. At least it gave both Harley and her antagonist, Minor Disaster, a sad scene to show their human emotions. It's just few panels among otherwise unreadable garbage, though, making abominations like Gwenpool look half decent.
