Harley Quinn is great at kicking jerks in the face. Paying her taxes? Not so much. Things turn from bad to worse when Harley's new accountant, an ex-con called the Hambezzler, runs into trouble with his old crew and they come to Coney Island with one thing on their minds: payback!

    Harley Quinn #69 is a light-hearted, on the go, bit of fun. It was well-done and thoroughly enjoyable break from the norm. Lots of fluff with tender moments sprinkled in fits into Harley Quinn's world nicely. I loved all the nice touches, like the chibi versions of the characters on their individual narrations. Personally, I think this is one of the best side stories ever to venture into the nonsensical made reality. You can get your copy here or at your local comic shop. Read Full Review

    As a one shot I found this issue to be a lot of fun. Russell did a great job crafting a collection of both wacky and loveable new characters, who I wouldn't mind showing back up later. It also has some moments of depth, and gives Harley a chance to be more than an exasperated landlady in need of her taxes done. This issue is a lighthearted read that you'll chuckle at, and enjoy going back to for all the little jokes you missed or details you didn't quite catch the first read through. Read Full Review

    Even though the execution isn't quite up to Humphries' level, is there a better title to tell ridiculous stories like this? Read Full Review

    It's refreshing and fun and funny and a great way to close out one year and enter another. Read Full Review

    This issue isn't going to win an Eisner, but Sam Humphries making fun of Mickey D's and fast-food in general was good for some fun. Sure, there wasn't a lot of Harley in it, but the art was really good and it is worth a look for a few laughs. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 8, 2020

    The issue reads like a fevered dream and I'm a bit surprised Harley doesn't wake to reveal the whole thing was nothing more than idle fancy. Instead, Harley takes out the other old coots fairly easily, bands together with them and her new tax man, and gets some justice for the entire group by looking for the real crooks of the operation (including one that looks an awful lot like Mayor McCheese). If the characters didn't turn out to all be criminals, one might expect an issue to come with every Happy Meal. For fans. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 3, 2020

    Mark Russell and Sami Basri have some fun with a fast-food flavored caper that's a send-up of the McDonald's corporations various characters, but as a Harley Quinn story it leaves something to be desired. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn #69 reduces Harley to a background character in her own series in an attempt to explore washed up fast food icons. They can't all be winners. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 6, 2020

    The series continues. Harley has come down from a hell of an adventure at the end of last year. Not every issue is going to be utterly brilliant. This one seems to be a muddle between possible high points. Harley just engaged with the cosmic end of the DC Universe before dealing with the death of her mother. Here shes loafing about with a weak joke. At least shes not hanging out with an even weaker Joker. Its nice to know that some standards are still firmly in place, even in the least inspired issue of her current series.  Read Full Review
