    Overall, HARLEY QUINN #9 is a fun issue to read. It's going to be extremely difficult for me to wait two more issues, as the next issue is a holiday interlude. Nevertheless, I am eagerly looking forward to seeing how the Clown Princess handles yet another crazy twist in her life. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Dec 8, 2016

    This is again one of those transition stories as Harley returns to Coney Island and tries to pick up where she left off before her vacation with Ivy. I love these slice-of-life/every day adventures in comics, so this is just my cup of tea for a cold winter day. Add in some outstanding (and fun) dream sequences, and the promise of a visit from the Joker, and I'm all in! It's only a little bit of a shame we'll be interrupted by a holiday special before we see what happens next–but then the holidays are always fun with Harley too! Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - David Finn Dec 8, 2016

    This issue was another solid entry and I felt it played a bit experimentally with the format in a good way " I found it a lot more rewarding on a second read through. This series goes from strength to strength and draws me further and further in as a reader. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Dec 30, 2016

    Harley is one of the most popular comic book characters across the world right now, and DC are definitely taking advantage of that. But they're not wasting her talent either. They're constantly developing her in a brilliant way. And this latest direction will surely shake things up a bit. Unfortunately, the ending ofHarley Quinn #9 won't be resolved until#11. It's a great place to leave off from though, as it's a huge revelation. Not just for the Clown Princess of Crime, but the DC Universe as a whole. If you're a fan of Harley Quinn, you need to be reading this solo series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Dec 8, 2016

    This issue may be a bit scatterbrained in focus, with two separate dream sequences interspersed between a roller derby battle and various other set pieces, but it does the trick as far as conveying just how depressed and adrift Miss Quinn has become. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Konrad Secord-Reitz Dec 7, 2016

    This issue was really fun to read and there are a few touching emotional moments that make the reader really feel for Harley. She is a character that I know I'll be sure to follow and you should too! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Patrick Ross Dec 7, 2016

    Shit's about to go down in Harley's world, and this issue does well to set that up. She's hanging onto reality by a thread and it's only going to get worse for her, and better for us, the readers. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 7, 2016

    This is a Harley Quinn comic book. You see some characters that haven't been around in a little while, and there's some fantastic artwork as always, but nothing of special consequence happens and there are no action-packed moments. Actually, knowing Palmiotti and Conner, the most innocuous thing in this issue will prove to be important later on. I have no great complaints nor any huge praise for this issue. If you've liked Harley Quinn up to this point, then I suspect you'll enjoy this one as well. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 10, 2016

    The newest issue of Harley Quinn doesn't delve into the good stuff as much as I'd hoped, instead floating by on trippy dream sequences and the usual random vignettes of Harley stuff. Read Full Review
