    Get Your Comic On - Michael Brennan Apr 23, 2024

    This issue of Harley Quinn stands as a powerful testament to the character's lasting allure, weaving together humour, heart, and a touch of madness to craft an enthralling and delightful story. This issue masterfully captures the chaos and charm of Gotham's favourite mallet-wielding clown, promising a journey as unforgettable and unpredictable as Harley herself. It offers a delightful peek into Quinn's life, entertaining in its own right, yet it's the buildup to something even more monumental that ensnares you. Quinn and Mr. Freeze are on a collision course, and this issue skillfully begins laying the groundwork for what promises to be an epic showdown. Read Full Review

    I could do without the new police officer who's obsessed with the idea that Harley is still a criminal (which she kind of is), but this might be my favorite installment of this run. Read Full Review

    Other than Harley Quinn #39 feeling a little on the long side, this issue is actually pretty good. This feels like the real Harley, part chaos, all heart, doing both good work and creating problems all at once. Read Full Review

    The art and colors are fantastic and fits in with the story. Trini Howard is becoming one of my more favorite contemporary writers. Her range is notable when comparing her work on Catwoman and Harley Quinn. Two very distinctive types of stories with two very distinct artists. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn #39 sets up a chilling beginning to Harley discovering her way and finding success. What Freeze is up to remains to be seen but the moves he is making may leave Harley with no choice but to join him in his work... Read Full Review

    I'm not sure what happened; this run was going pretty well for a while. We want Harley to be zany, but we also want some level of coherence. This approach worked in the multidimensional stuff with S. Boo art, but nothing about this new arc makes sense. We can't hold comics to a serious standard of realism, especially this one, but the level of buffoonery here with respect to how police, probation, jobs, apartments, and therapy work just took me out of the story way too much. The whole point of Harley is that she's goofy in a somewhat more serious world. If the whole world is as zany and nonsensical as Harley, what's the point of her? She has no foil. And if we're abandoning the concept of stakes and consequences to lean into comedy, why isn more

    Unfortunately I'm probably not the target market for a comic like this but I did try to read it and not going to lie , I gave up before my will to live deserted me. I love cartoons and as a Darkwing Duck and Negaduck fan I thought badly to myself this would be fun. Sorry but this was the worst comic I have read in forever and by the time I finally put it down it got me to wondering who the target market actually was. The art is simple to blah , the script makes no sense , the speech is a labour to read and the whole idea this should exist at all makes me wish to be an editor as I would have took this muddle of crap and dispatched it into the nearest garbage bin. On a lighter note it does save me $4.99 next month..... JM
