    Dark Knight News - Kendra Hale Apr 4, 2019

    This one is the easiest ten out of ten I have possibly given. It earns all of it and begs for brownie points. The growth they consistently show you with Harley Quinn and the breath taking beauty in the artwork this issue, coupled with the variant make it a must have. We get what looks like a break next issue but with the hint of what is coming next for Harley, pins and needles for the next tale is hardly correct wording. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 3, 2019

    Harley really has some kind of serious breakthrough this issue.  Humphries, Basri and Sinclair bring together a really complicated world for Harley to inhabit that feels every bit as complex as Harley herself. On the surface, its a fun little sci-fi adventure, but there IS deeper dramatic energy lurking beneath the surface of it all for those who are interested in something deeper. This issue continue to exhibit the sharper elements of Humphries era of Harley Quinn, delivering a good story that works on any level a reader wants to engage it on. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 3, 2019

    The trial story is going on a bit too long, but I like how Humphries uses it as background for Harley's personal struggles. Only the Batman team-up arc has really nailed that dynamic in the last few issues, but the story as a whole remains compelling. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Apr 3, 2019

    You want some excellent sequential art in your collection.You like cosmic/psychedelic visuals.You're into action-packed, fast-paced comics with a touch of science fiction. There's great artwork in this issue and, even though not all of the jokes work for me, the ones that do are witty and on point. This issue is also filled with action scenes, monsters, aliens, laser guns and hallucinations, all of which makes for an entertaining issue. While it certainly helps to know what happened previously in the Trials of Harley Quinn arc, I think that there's enough here to enjoy even for those who came in late. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 9, 2019

    For many readers, Harley Quinn has been an acquired taste as a book - and as a reader who was less enamored with previous volumes, it's nice to see Humphries bringing a tighter rein on his plotting and pacing for a character that has been known to meander. And partnered up with an art team as solid as Basri and Sinclair, there's a lot to like just by taking in the imagery at play. That all said, there's still plenty of room for improvement for this book - giving Harley a deeper personality might lend a little bit more weight behind all those zero-calorie one-liners.

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Apr 4, 2019

    Not a great issue of Harley Quinn, as Sam Humphries' run is starting to feel decidedly average and lacking in anything special. For completionists only. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Apr 3, 2019

    Like much ofDCs output these days, the emphasis seems to be on spectacle, an immensecanvas of cosmic events that would shake the universe. But its been going onso long, its hard to discern the highs from lows, mainly because the only lowsthat exists are in the cinematic DCU, with all its grim and grit. DC seems tobe trying to turn that around, but the fact is there is no magic formula tomeet the needs/wants of the audience. If they truly want to climb to the top,they should do it one good story at a time. Read Full Review

    This issue is ok, but also quite confusing& doesn’t really have a plot. Harley is breaking in Star labs to find a cure for her mother. I don’t like the relationship with her mother, since she also ignores, that Harley is a psychotic mass murderer, not a teen, who drank too much. The scenes with Joker& Batman were the best, but that’s really it. They had no real purpose. The plot of Harley having to pass some tests als seem kind of dumb, but then again this series never really had much logic.
    The art is great though.

    Underwhelming, empty comic equivalent of a Michael Bay movie - flashy and desperately trying to be as spectacular as possible, while also being quite illiterate and devoid of much, if any, substance.

    I do appreciate building Harley's relationship with her mom, but it's quickly overshadowed by empty action - and I mean EMPTY. It's as hollow as the last issue of Batman, or Heroes in Crisis, with one page dedicated exclusively to Harl shooting enemies, each panel from different angle.
    Then, demons from her past begin to haunt her. We see Joker, for some odd reason not having any damn eyebrows like the parody from Suicide Squad movie (which also bastardized Harley herself, having some idiotic scribbles on her face there, looking more

    I have almost entirely forgotten this issue at the time of writing this. Can we please get a Harley reboot more in line with the Animated Series version?
