    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 2, 2022

    Harley Quinn #18 is a new start on many levels. The new art team carries that same soul that this book so proudly kept, with energy and enthusiasm constantly adding a smile to the face. But the story is massively changed, taking Harley out of her world and sending her to something different. The exposition is heavy, but it does give both Phillips and Harley a brand new and exciting adventure with a team full of chaos. Read Full Review

    As always, the illustration is in a dizzying modern styling perfectly matching the vibrant temperament of Harley. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn #18 sets up a grand adventure to come, but the issue fumbles in handling the supporting characters and throwing in a long fight scene when one wasnt necessary.The prolonged battle would look great in a film, but here, it just comes off looking like a way to pad the issue.

    Dark Knight News - Kendra Hale Aug 8, 2022

    Harley Quinn #18 doesn't disappoint with the artwork and the cover selections, but we'll have to see if there's any turbulence now that we've achieved take off, or if we will be left adrift in orbit. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Aug 2, 2022

    While the artist change-up for Stephanie Phillips' run of Harley Quinn probably won't save the series at this point, it does make the book a lot more palatable than before. I still think it was a bad choice to make this book go monthly though, since I don't think it has the clout or substance behind it to handle that. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 3, 2022

    Harley Quinn #18 jettisons (almost) everything from the previous seventeen issues in favor of an ill-explained and odd mission to send Harley to the moon to destroy an unstable, alien element. Changing the art over from Rossmo to Duarte is a step in the right direction, but the kookiness, lack of setup, and explanation to go with the nonsensical plot are too much for any artist to overcome.

    The Batman Universe - Daniel Goldberg Aug 3, 2022

    This is not the Harley narrative I am looking for, but fans of Phillips's Harley will no doubt find something to appreciate here. Read Full Review

    It's not the weakest book in this current Harley run, but it's just very, very mid. Read Full Review
