    This is my favorite Harley Quinn storyline so far, and that's saying a lot, considering I love this comic. It's got a great, fun twist, the characters are fantastic and the themes are as strong as ever. This is just so much fun to read! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - SHAY REVOLVER Oct 25, 2016

    Overall this issue will give you life and suck you back into the world of Harley Quinn. It serves to take the bitter taste out of readers mouth for the uncertain direction that it felt like Harley's character was taking, especially in the new 52s. This new path stays in line with the Harley as her own woman and an entity in love with but, separate from the Joker. The issue expands on the Rebirth of the Harley brand and although fleeting we get a glimpse at her and Red Tool and how their relationship is evolving. We also get to see a story line progress and make sense. Issue #6 continues to do right by Harley and it deserves attention. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Patrick Ross Oct 19, 2016

    Harley Quinn‘s always a blast to read. This issue felt like a step up from the last one, too–just as funny, but with a bit more to chew on and a situation we haven't seen her in before. I hope Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti write Harley Quinn forever. As long as they do, I'll keep reading it. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Nov 6, 2016

    Whilst ‘Purple Satin' seem like generic stand-in roguish types, they certainly lead our favourite clown princess-of crime in an interesting direction. With an ending that is genuinely quite funny, we can't help but wonder how it plays into the actual storyline or if it's used just for shock value. OverallHarley Quinn #6 is a fantastic entry into this story, and it's only going to get crazier. Hopefully the writers don't just use the wild nature of the series as a scapegoat to avoid actually crafting an intriguing story. Because so far, it's one of the most unique series to come out of DC Comics in a long time. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Oct 20, 2016

    In looking at this issue, I would say that this had a stronger through line than some issues of Harley which often rely on the quickness of the lead character, a layering of subplots and multiple activities split between sections of the book. That's extremely enjoyable, but I did enjoy feeling like Harley was kicking solo and running her own mission after she really made such an emphatic statement at the punk concert. As noted the art is uniformly excellent and effective and the flashback scene gave us a taste of something different while tying into the current story. It's hard not to love this issue and current arc and I have absolutely no intention of resisting such an emotion. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 19, 2016

    This story arc continues to be a lot of fun, and I'm enjoying the punk rock stylings of the Skull Bags. There aren't any shocking reveals or crazy twists that turn everything you believed to be true on its ear, but the jokes land and the art is great and it's terrific to see team Harley Quinn on such a tight focus. Now if someone wants to put some punk rock music to G.G. Harlin's lyrics about curdled milk, I'd be glad to give it a listen! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 20, 2016

    Harley Quinn has started a punk band. That's really all you need to know about the series' current story arc. The result isn't a terribly dramatic story. There's little sense of danger or conflict. The focus is simply on Harley and her friends making awful music together and looking to punish some wrongdoers who need punishing. But that's generally enough for right now. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Oct 19, 2016

    While I feel like this arc was off to a rocky start, the plot is thickening in interesting ways and even though this issue was short on good guy vs. bad guy throw-downs, I actually enjoyed the interaction between Harley and the punk scene (dog poop notwithstanding). It was also fun to see some interaction between Eggy, Red Tool, and Big T as her bandmates bonding over basketball. For some reason I'm thinking our mysterious Big Bad might not be who we're all assuming it is, so we'll just have to see how it all plays out. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Konrad Oct 19, 2016

    This issue is great. As a “head banger” myself, this issue does a good job at capturing the feeling of a rock joint while elevating it to the insanity of Harley Quinn. I just hope that Harley fans are ready to see her take the stage and beyond. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Oct 24, 2016

    Excessively violent, unnecessarily crude. Which is great, I suppose, if you're into that... Read Full Review
