When Harley's first Christmas without her mother proves more difficult than she anticipated, she leaves Coney Island and heads to the most holiday-free zone she can imagine: Los Angeles!

    The story itself in the episode is honestly a little thin"but it's perfectly fitting for the absolutely bonkers adventures the book takes readers on each and the parts of it that pack a punch do so in precisely the way you'd expect a holiday tale to. The art is what wins here with a bright and beautiful holiday display, Harley style. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Tony Dillard Dec 7, 2019

    Citizen Jack's Sam Humphries took over the reigns for this series earlier this year from Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti and Chad Hardin. They were the best group to handle Harley since she was first crafted by creators Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. So, I was a little cautious that Humphries' holiday take of Harley Quinn just wouldn't be the same. But like I mentioned earlier, this issue was a home run. Thus, Sam Humphries really knocked it out of the park! Read Full Review

    Even if you're not a Christmas or Harley fan, this issue is fun, funny, and heartfelt. It's a fantastic Christmas story, and provides a much needed lesson during this season. Really, just go pick it up, you won't regret it. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 4, 2019

    It's the perfect holiday special for a book that's alternatively hilarious and uplifting, but this title is a little hard to place in terms of an overall run. Humphries takes a wide left turn with the ending that seems to come out of nowhere " but I predict it'll somehow come together into something fascinating. Read Full Review

    I adored Harley Quinn #68, it was a really good way to end out the year and ring in the holidays. I like the character development done this issue and there are some moments of action that are just beautiful. Happily, recommend this one with 9 out of 10. I am fully looking forward to seeing if they go forward with the great teaser at the end of the book for issue #69. Guess we will have to wait and see in 2020! Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn #68 is a fun one-shot Christmas story that is very much on brand for the series, full of clever holiday puns and wacky chaos only this character can deliver. Read Full Review

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

    The sudden shift from Christmas to an entirely new theme in the last couple of pages is a bit jarring. Humphries really seemed to be building up to something with the death of Harleys mom towards the end of this year. One might hope that Humphries has broader plans to deal with Harleys ongoing psychological life. One might expect that Harley might want to avoid deeper issues as they generally arent too much fun. Time will tell who wins out in the end. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 4, 2019

    Sami Basri has an beautiful, detailed style in the art that not only makes the characters and action look great, but also conveys emotional brilliantly from one moment to the other. There are panels where the depth of Harley's emotions change from one to the other and Basri captures that in ways that keep me coming back to this book. Read Full Review
