Yer pal Harley Quinn back again! Now, there might be a lot of new faces in Gotham, but it’s always nice to see an old friend. Okay, so Catwoman explicitly asked me not to call her my friend, but I know she secretly loves me under that tough, broody, leather-clad exterior. You’re not gonna wanna miss this one as we tangle with those boring Magistrate goons in Alleytown like a real dynamic duo! I smash a lot of stuff with my bat, and Selina does a bunch of flips and awesome things with her whip. She’s so cool.

    Harley may be biting off more than she can chew, but watching her handle everything will be a thrill. I have a feeling that we may be seeing a new facet of Harley that will continue to break through as this journey takes its course. That can be said of anyone who will be joining in on this Fear State ride as it's one that may change… everything. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Kellie Keener Aug 25, 2021

    Unlike in previous issues, as of Harley Quinn #6, it no longer seems like Hugo Strange is pulling all of the strings. Rather, Scarecrow has become a threat, potentially to Strange as well, And what of the mysterious Keepsake? Its unclear where his loyalties lie or what he wants from Strange. This issue set up a lot of plot points, and it will be interesting to see how they all come together.  Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Aug 24, 2021

    The drawing style switches up in this issue as Laura Braga takes on the mantle of series artist. This is a good looking issue filled with action and excitement. The illustration here is extremely detailed, and the color palette is bold. The realistic facial expressions and character movements are very engaging and I felt completely transported throughout the tale. Read Full Review

    Overall, Im more than impressed with this creative team, and the guest star narrative of this issue works absolutely in favor of it, even within Phillips larger narrative, to take a breath of fresh air that is gonna make a fan of any of the two characters smile. With cat/hyena metaphors and all. Oh, and the nod to Red in the ending is absolutely sweet. Can't wait to see that followed up. Read Full Review

    I honestly never thought that a Harley Quinn title would be one of my favourites. I don't dislike the character, but I've never been particularly drawn to her either. But Stephanie Phillips has managed to hook me into her story about Harley's quest for redemption. Even if you're not a fan of Harley, this title is well worth checking out. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 24, 2021

    Harley Quinn #6 is a fantastic start to a new arc. Phillips bridges the gap between what has already happened. But the expertly crafted double-act with Selina allows the story to stand on its own without the foreshadowing. The writer has an awesome style that makes any conversation stunning. The new art team settles in brilliantly. As Harley Quinn falls into the umbrella of the Fear State crossover, it will be interesting to see which direction this book goes. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 24, 2021

    After the plot-heavy first arc which pit Harley against the entire forces of Arkham and the GCPD, this done-in-one side story works nicely to dial down the tension and show how well Phillips writes Harley and her world. Hopefully this is leading to a full Sirens revival down the line once Ivy's status quo is more settled. Read Full Review

    The artwork by Laura Braga is well done. I like Braga. I hope she gets a regular series soon, but it is always a treat when her artwork shows up. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn #6 sees an artist change, with Laura Braga taking over for Riley Rossmo and while I wasn't exactly a big fan of Rossmo's art and I do enjoy Braga's work, it's a hard shift that feels a little unsteady with this next chapter of Harley's story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 24, 2021

    Harley Quinn #6 finds a new artist to improve the visual style of the book, but the reset is only half successful. The story is barely held together with scotch tape and dental floss, and the action makes no sense. I don't like being negative on a title to dunk or roast, but man, oh, man DC, what are you doing with this title?!? Read Full Review
