You know those real cheesy rom-coms where two unlikely lovebirds lean in for the same book and knock heads in the poetry section of the school library and fall madly in love? Well, this story is nothing like that. For starters, Kevin met his new muse in the middle of Scarecrow attacking Gotham (how’s that for a meet-cute?). And second, despite his planning the most perfect and romantic date night with Ivy, it seems like she might have something else on her mind. Love is in the air-errr, wait…that might be toxic gas…this is Gotham!

    If there is an issue of this series that one would be very sorry to miss… it's this one. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Dec 28, 2021

    Harley Quinn #10 is a love story to rival the greatest. This appears to be a transition issue between arcs, but it is in no way filler. There are incredibly important events that occur in this chapter that will change the course of many series to come. Phillips dialogue is so engaging to read, the art is fantastic, and the notion that they care about these characters is evident. Read Full Review

    While I never disliked the character, I never really thought that a Harley Quinn title would be one of my favourite comics. Stephanie Phillips has added more depth in the character of Harley than I though was possible. And Harley Quinn #10 is a perfect example of this. Read Full Review

    An emotive issue filled with character depth and the most gorgeous, playful art. Let's see where this goes and hope that at the end isn't a long-lived situation. Read Full Review

    The developments involving Keepsake happen a little too fast and were probably the weakest part of the issue, but the ending was a perfect note for Harley/Ivy fans. Read Full Review

    In life, there are rarely storybook endings to chapters and that's the case here for these two but this issue shows us a Harley who is finally strong enough in her sense of self that she is able to help the person she loves find that same clarity"all while setting the stage for what is likely to be a very exciting and action-filled story to come.

    This is a terrific book. Phillips is changing Harley Quinn before our eyes, and I love this version. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Dec 28, 2021

    Harley Quinn #10 is a bit nonsensical to matter much and feels like an excuse for Stephanie Phillips to force the issue's ending. Laura Braga's art is very different from Rossmo's bewildering funhouse mirror style for a more relatable visual experience. Still, there are issues with movement throughout, making for some confusing panel sequences. Read Full Review

    KEVIN, NO!

    I loved this issue, and it makes total sense for these characters. I just hope we really do get to see Ivy go on a path like this. But that's the thing with UNIVERSES, we many never get to.

    But for this arc, this version, this title, it's honestly the emotionally strong thing to do.

    This is not queerbait. Queerbait is hinting at, but not explicitly showing, a same-sex relationship or some other form of LGBT representation. They definitely show the gay here. I'm not in that "take what you can get" mindset but let's be real, DC only recently started showing Harley and Ivy actually kissing on page again. I get the frustration of yet another break up of this couple, but this time, it didn't seem nearly as corporate as it did in the past. Not to say it wasn't, as this is almost certainly DC freeing up Ivy for her own stories coming this year. I just think the writer did a better job than most when it comes to this unfortunately common story.

    Harley & Ivy splitting up! Glad to see DC always has fresh new ideas for their most famous queer couple.

    In short: Stephanie Phillips reunited Harley and Ivy just to break them up in just a few panels. The only reason the issue exists is for the worlds fastest first date and breakup. It's pure queerbait, avoid it. I was very supportive of this run but unfortunately neither the book nor the writer deserves my money anymore. Tee Franklins book is a better choice for anyone who wants to read a fun Harley story,
