Kevin here! You know, Harley’s sidekick, and your favorite new character? I know Harley usually does these solicits, but she’s a little tied up at the moment. Like, literally. See, there’s a new villain in Gotham calling himself Keepsake, and you know how Gotham villains are: definite psychological issues. So Keepsake kidnapped Harley, while trying to convince her to be his partner and help take over the city. Now, I don’t mean to imply that Harley’s not capable all on her own, but this time she needs a little help. Which means I’m teaming up with Solomon Grundy so we can visit Gotham’s worst criminals and figure out where Harle more

    What the Harley Quinn Annual 2021 did was solid. It's an integral part of the series that moved the story forward, and gave us insight into a background that demonstrated that this issue isn't merely a fluff piece. This is an amazing comic that adds so much to the series. It left me with a smile on my face and a craving for more. I'm so excited to see what's coming in Harley Quinn #7, as the full plan unfolds and readers get to take in what's still to come, for not only Harley, but Gotham as well. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 1, 1970

    Harley Quinn Annual 2021 #1 is a superb representative of the whole series. The book is fun and hilarious and meaningful and energetic. Phillips has made this character their own and is relishing the world they are creating. They are an awesome writer and the techniques and expertly woven dialogue show incredible craft. The interchanging of the art and the evolution of the visuals show a constant change within the comic that maintains interest. This comic has a personality and a soul that makes reading it a delight.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Timala Elliott Sep 2, 2021

    The illustration in this issue matches the playful vibe of the story. The colors are bold or bright and changes with the different locations of the story. So does the drawing style. However, the varying techniques serve to differentiate the nature of each major villain. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Sep 9, 2021

    The Harley Quinn 2021 Annual gives us an an interesting look at Harley's sidekick Kevin, while filling us in on Keepsake's backstory. It's an amusing tale that offers both laughs, but with an introspective undertone. Stephanie Phillips' take on Harley has made this a much more interesting and enjoyable title than I expected at first. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 31, 2021

    Many annuals make themselves side stories that don't really affect the main narrative of the story, making it easy to skip. Not so much for Harley Quinn, which is coming only one arc into the main series. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Daniel Goldberg Sep 1, 2021

    The annual doesn't quite soar, but the narrative structure is effective and we get most everything that is currently working well with Harley Quinn. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Duna Haller Aug 31, 2021

    A lot of great ideas but kind of directionless (or at least stumbling in its direction) issue, and Keepsake doesn't seem particularly scary, compelling or interesting for a villain. Read Full Review
