    I won't spoil the exact challenge Harley faces this issue, but the book stands as a beautiful reminder for readers to embrace who they really are as opposed to what others think they are. It's a powerful message, and it's beautifully done. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 6, 2019

    Humphries issues of Harley have been strangely erratic in kind of an appealing way. Traveling off into some weird Kafka fugue for 20 pages seems to fit the kind of weirdness that the title has been engaging in of late. It makes perfect sense in context even if it seems like kind of a departure from everything shes dealt with thus far a strange, little dream of an issue thats not without its charm. Read Full Review

    There's still some good stuff in this issue, and Mirand'r is an intriguing addition to the plotline. But overall, this is the thinnest issue of the series and I'm hoping the remaining challenges in Harley's quest have some more interesting subtext to them. This is a rare weak spot in an excellent run. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Mar 6, 2019

    I've enjoyed this issue quite a bit. Of course there are things here that I critique, but on the whole I appreciate that this issue spreads a positive message and that the artwork is of good quality. I just wish that more information about the Lords of Chaos and Order was revealed and that we're given a better reason as to why Harley has been chosen by the Lords instead of someone else. Because we're missing this information, the entire premise of this arc can be questioned, and that's never a good sign. That said, we'll just have to wait and see how the creative team is going to further develop this story, because these answers might still be revealed in the future. I just hope that by then it's not too late. Read Full Review

    A slightly clever and fun issue which plays with some neat if obvious themes. The Trials of Harley remains one of the better Sam Humphries Harley arcs. Read Full Review
