It's a whole new year of me, Harley Quinn! I've learned the ins and outs of Gotham's lovely sewage system, and I've even made some unexpected friends along the way. I mean, except for one very murderous new vigilante roaming the streets, a new homicide detective convinced I'm the killer, and the acclaimed Spice World (1997) film not being on a single streaming platform. Other than that...totally fine. Year two starts here with a new arc...brand new characters...and some all-too-familiar faces from my past who maybe aren't so happy to see me.

    With an onslaught of amazing and stunning covers created by folks like Mico Suayan, Rex Lokus, and of course Derrick Chew and Riley Rossmo, alongside new character development; as Harley fights to keep what ground she has gained, both physically and in her own mind, Harley Quinn #13 gives us a fresh take on just what defines being ahero. This comic displays brilliance in every way. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Mar 22, 2022

    Harley Quinn #13 is a re-energized delight. The book starts a new arc brilliantly as it flings Harley into an entirely different set of circumstances. And yet Phillips keeps the same themes running throughout the series in a way that revisits yet constantly reimagines. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Mar 23, 2022

    It is the perfect jumping in point for new readers. Personally, I found this to be my favorite issue so far. Phillips creates a dual narrative that is both dark and whimsical. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 22, 2022

    Overall, this is a fun issue but until we know more about Verdict it's going to be a little bit of a blank slate. Still, there's something very promising in a story about Harley being targeted by a vigilante gone way too far. Read Full Review

    While I never disliked the character, I never really expected that a Harley Quinn book would be one of my favourite titles. Stephanie Phillips has made me care about the character in a way I never really have before, and has me eager to read the latest chapter every month. Read Full Review

    I am glad to say goodbye to Keepsake, Dr. Hugo, and the Fear State. Although I liked lots about Fear State, I was never convinced it was the best vehicle for showcasing Harley, and I am interested to see how the framing of Harley for Verdict's crimes interacts with the darkness in Harley's journey.

    Harley Quinn #13 gets things a bit more on track after the rather unnecessary previous issue, but that doesn't do much to help the overall momentum of things, at least not until the final pages which presents something of a new challenge for Harley. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Mar 23, 2022

    Ultimately, Harley Quinn #13 feels middle-of-the-road; its not bad by any means, but it doesnt stand out, primarily because it features very little of the titular character. While its certainly necessary to set up what the arc will be about, this issue had too many pacing problems, with some aspects feeling dragged out and some too rushed. Combined with the often confusing page layouts, Harley Quinn #13 is a bit of a disappointment in an otherwise outstanding run.  Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 22, 2022

    Harley Quinn #13 slightly improves over the last few issues with improved art and a cliffhanger that could lead to some fun.  Unfortunately, the journey from the first page to the cliffhanger requires the reader to believe everyone around Harley is incompetent.  But, at least, Phillips is consistent.

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna May 21, 2022

    There's not a whole lot to say about this issue. It's just a little set up and filler for a new storyline with an already predictable ending. If Stephanie Phillips subverts my expectations and brings this arc to a different conclusion, I'll be happy. Read Full Review
