Harley's tried everything to avoid Lex Luthor and his stupid "Offer"-she's destroyed half a dozen of Lex's drones, she's changed her name, her cell phone number-she even faked her own death! Why won't this bald, pasty-faced weirdo take no for an answer? Harley Quinn takes on the crossover event of the summer in this comic-within-a-comic take on "DC's Year of the Villain"!

    Even if you dismiss Harley Quinn as too much of a jokey, goofy character, this issue is well worth checking out for seeing how Harley interacts with DC's big events for 2019. This was my unexpected gem of the week. Read Full Review

    I love it when a story becomes self-aware, and self-deprecating becomes the icing on the cake. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 7, 2019

    Somewhere in the midst of the issue, Harley makes bitter mention of crossover events that everyone complains about, but everyone still buys. Humphries is having fun with a bad crossover that hes clearly been cornered into. Its really satisfying to see Humphries manage to make the crossover fit so well into the ongoing drama of Harleys life. It all comes together so perfectly that it would have practically have had to have been planned by some sort of evil super-genius looking for the only way he could possibly wrangle the anarchic energies of a slowly-reforming clown-girl psychopath Read Full Review

    With Harley's mother now in a coma, and her friends and family gathering around her for support, Harley does all she can do"read an uplifting and hilarious comic and hope the stories and laughter will pull her mother through. But it seems there are other plans laid out for Harley. Read Full Review

    In closing of Harley Quinn #64, I hope that you readers are enjoying the series as much as I am. I don't truly know what will come for our Harley Quinn as Lex may have found the offer the Harley cannot refuse. What will Harley choose? Will it affect the trials she has worked so hard for? Would it be something her Mom would want her to do? I guess we will have to wait til the next issue to see just what is next for Harley Quinn! Please leave your thoughts on this issue in the comments below, I would love to hear your answers. Read Full Review

    Congrats to Humphries for poking fun at the Year of the Villain event in Harley Quinn #64, and making those of us who have heard about it get a good laugh for a change! I loved it when Bane said, "Luthor! Strip now!" Read Full Review

    Perhaps a little too inside-baseball for its own good, but good fun. An improvement for the Harley Quinn title. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Aug 7, 2019

    Despite having criticized this series for quite a while, I actually really like this issue. It's still problematic at times"particularly when nobody but Harley and her dad seem to notice or care that Harley's mom's on her deathbed, which takes me out of the story"but for the most part Humphries has written a layered story that addresses various aspects of comic books and the nature of shared continuity, and also respectfully and honestly talks about terminal disease. On top of that, the ending of this issue is quite powerful, and Sami Basri's artwork looks great. Recommended! Read Full Review

    I hate new Harley as much as the next guy, but this issue really worked. Sam Humphries is a good writer with a bad character and this issue showed him playing to the strengths she has.

    While Harley Quinn holds a bedside vigil for her mother, who is hospitalized with cancer, Sam Humphries takes the readers on a romp through the DC Universe (both stories and the streaming service) while giving voice to the (valid) criticisms of DC's recent continuity -- Year of the Villain, Tom King's portrayal of Bane and Event Leviathan, among others. The art is appropriately light-hearted, and I enjoyed the cartoony version of Apex Lex (Luthor).

    The fun stuff comes to a close with a poignant moment. Read to the last panel.

    This was perhaps the best DC book of the week. I usually don't give it the time of day, but I'dve read this one three times in less than 24 hours. Humphries nailed it.

    That was awesome! I don't much care about Harley Quinn but I saw the great reviews and picked this up. When Sam Humphries is great (this issue, Dial H for Hero, Green Lanterns) he's pretty darn great.

    This issue sure isn’t 10/10, but it had some funny scenes ( not that I wanted to know how disappointing small Bane’s dick is, but at least this issue is a parody of Bane walking around naked in some of Kings issues). However if this series would be more serious, it could be a cool villain turn for Harley. Sad DC will miss this opportunity to fix the character.

    I love Harley but I wish this was a more serious comic. It's written like its for kids only but then the things that happen or are discussed in it are more for adults. So it just comes across as stupid. Sad I really like this character just not how she is written in her own series.

    Did love the Bane jokes. Very funny.
