I went to the moon to eat cheese and fight aliens...and I'm all outta cheese. Actually, there wasn't any cheese. I think that's a myth...but aliens, hooo boy, do we have aliens! Horace Reginald Giger would be proud! What? No...I'm positive that's what H.R. stands for. Anyway, this alien-monster-thing might not get a chance to devour Task Force XX, because we're probably gonna kill each other first. What'd you expect, sendin' a buncha angry villains to space without any cheese? I warned ya! The Harley Quinn and Task Force XX space event you've always needed continues here. Cheese not included.

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 16, 2022

    Harley Quinn #20 gives a space horror story the clown treatment. Phillips combines a genuinely disturbing and scary plot with one of the most powerful characters in terms of personality, and it is a superb mix. Its a new setting for Harley but she would be a livewire anywhere in the universe. The art gives the comic an unsettling edge whilst also keeping that cartoonish element. That signature, impeccable dialogue and narration will always give this comic an emotional heart unlike any other. Read Full Review

    The third part of this monthly event has two artists on board, and that's part of the reason it doesn't work quite as well as it could. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 16, 2022

    Harley Quinn #20 reads like a semi-serious 80s alien horror movie starring Task Force X. Harley is barely a player in her own title, but in this case, that's a good thing. The art is serviceable, the ridiculous action is okay, and the issue ends with a respectable cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 24, 2022

    In Hollywood terms, its Aliens meets Suicide Squad. Its also a crossover to the Metal family of DC comics, so Phillipss work is...pleasantly derivative. Just toss a few things together and have some fun with them. Harleys march to Issue #30 of her current series is respectably enjoyable without trying to go for anything too deep. Its kind of a disappointment after the weird mix of things that found Harleys mother dying of cancer not too long ago, but its the right kind of fun. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - kcscribbles Aug 16, 2022

    Final ThoughtsHarley Quinn #20 is a weak continuation of the Task Force XX story, with most of the characters not feeling right, a potentially great combo of Harley and Grundy being wasted and a plot thats been used way too many times in the past.Hopefully, given the cliffhanger, things will improve next issue.

    Overall, this isn't a bad issue, but it just isn't great and feels pretty crammed full of things that don't really have anything to do with Harley. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Daniel Goldberg Aug 17, 2022

    As the story arc continues, the weekly nature of the book is wearing me down along with a Harley narrative that I don't find appealing. Certain Harley fans will still find something to appreciate, even if I am not among them. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Theresa Campagna Aug 16, 2022

    This entire Task Force XX plot line is a disappointing series to do for Harley's 30th Anniversary. The Luke Fox plot feels forced, the tone is all over the place, the jokes are terrible, and Harley doesn't even feel like the protagonist. I'm really looking forward to Harley's 30th Anniversary special, hoping it provides some better stories to celebrate the character. Meanwhile, I think we've hit rock bottom in terms of her writing in this solo.Score: 3.5/10 Read Full Review
