Harley Quinn here, still narrating my solicit text! My war of wellness with Hugo Strange kicks into high gear this issue, and things are gonna get ugly. Hugo is about to send his right-hand man-child Lockwood, Arkham Asylum’s most sadistic guard, after Kevin and me at our first support group meeting. Folks, some things in this world are sacred, and I am not gonna stand for this. Hugo Strange never picked a fight with someone like me before, and he’s not going to like the results. Buy this issue-it’s a real gem!

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker May 25, 2021

    Harley Quinn #3 is another energetic delight. There are layers within this comic that leave the reader wanting to go back and find more. This is a fun and humorous book, but there are sad scenes that show just how in-depth Harley is as a character within her own series. Phillips explores every aspect of her personality; the clown, the tortured soul; the friend; the fighter; the psychiatrist. The art style gives the comic a unique world to live in that compliments the title character beautifully. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn #3 feels like a violent Saturday morning cartoon in the best way possible. I had the best time reading this issue, and I eagerly look forward to the rest of the series. Read Full Review

    While I don't dislike the character, I never expected a Harley Quinn title to be one of my favourite books. I am quite enjoying Phillips' take on Harley and I look forward to seeing where this story is headed. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott May 25, 2021

    Rossmo uses a creative and fun drawing style highlighted by the bold and brilliant color work of Plascencia. The tone changes based on the characters. And there is a marked difference between the dizzying world of Harley, and the muted affairs involving Strange. I really enjoyed the art in this issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw May 27, 2021

    Harley Quinn #3 isn't the strongest issue in this series yet, but it's still a solid entry. Rossmo's artwork continues to knock it out of the park, and if Phillips can rein in the inner Snyder and let the narrative breathe, this series could have staying power. DC needs more innocence in its line, and Harley Quinn is a good step in that direction. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 25, 2021

    Harley Quinn #3 only works if you're comfortable accepting Harley Quinn is superpowered and dumb as a box of rocks. If that's the Harley you want, this is the book for you. Read Full Review
