Hey, remember the panel gutter between panels 3 and 4 of page 20 of HARLEY QUINN #12? What? You DON'T? It's only, like, the most memorable panel gutter of the twenty-first century. Well, either way, have we got the miniseries for you, in which the full tale of that momentous and momentary pause can be told! It's a cosmic adventure beyond your wildest imaginings: Power Girl and Harley Quinn, stranded in a forgotten dimension, on the homeworld of the amorous warlord Vartox! They'll sacrifice anything they have to in order to get home...except their dignity! Kidding! That'll be the first thing to go.

    The unusual mix of Power Girl and Harley Quinn doesn't get old in this mini-series opener that lands our two heroines on a fallen planet in the midst of multiple levels of crisis. There's never a dull moment and artist Stephane Roux makes every page worth a second look. If you want to be entertained and Secret Six wasn't fun enough"and Gotham Academy is geared too young for your tastes"then give this adventure story a try! Read Full Review

    It's not exactly deep, but DC's new Harley Quinn spinoff is plenty entertaining. This issue proves there's more mileage to be had with this unusual pairing of heroines. However, the series needs to delve deeper into their dynamic if the formula if the series wants to maintain its momentum for six issues. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Jun 18, 2015

    As a Harley fan I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series, full of smart dialogue and irreverent situations. I am hoping that Harley's main book can find a relationship as effective as this one between Harley and Power Girl. It really ties the room together. Read Full Review

    Behind The Panels - Richard Gray Jun 17, 2015

    It's Power Girl and Harley Quinn running around the cosmos getting into fights and adventures. This really is a no-brainer: if you like either character (or better yet, both!), there will be very few reasons to turn away from this mini-series. Even if it doesn't have a scratch-'n'-sniff element to it. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Jun 18, 2015

    Harley Quinn/Power Girl starts off strong, as it pit the two highly unlikely duo together for a misadventure. The book is funny, but it doesn't quite feel the same as the main series. It's only a mini-series, and i'm not sure if the book can carry all the weights, but check it out if you're a fan of Harley Quinn. Read Full Review

    It's a fun, twisted little story which seems to touch on other timelines, as Power Girl herself speculates. Read Full Review

    A lot of setup, but some fun character work and the promise of future Vartox/Power Girl interactions, which are pure gold. Read Full Review

    If anyone has enjoyed the writers' works on "Power Girl" or "Harley Quinn" in the past, then "Harley Quinn & Power Girl" #1 is going to be exactly what the doctor ordered. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 18, 2015

    There's potential to do something I might like here, taking jabs at tropes. And while that might be what Gray, Palmiotti, and Conner are attempting, it just doesn't quite come off that way to me. Might be for you, but not I. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 18, 2015

    I love Harley Quinn and while Palmiotti and Conner's Harley and Power Girl arc had me laughing out loud, I barely cracked a smile here.  The forgettable story, missed jokes and safe art really let me down.  I hope the next issue is a huge improvement because time is already running out on this miniseries.

    Harley Quinn and Power Girl is a mess of a book that does a disservice to both the characters and creators involved. Read Full Review
