Over the course of her illustrious and very high-class career, Harley's met pretty much every super-villain who ever worked in Gotham City. Some hate her. Some love her. But none of that's gonna matter once they see how many zeroes there are on the bounty The Joker's offering for her head! Sorry, Harley-it's just business. Your next of kin will understand, right? Meanwhile, Cassandra Cain finds herself in the unenviable position of being Harley Quinn's bodyguard...but this could be her opportunity to learn a little about, y'know, loosening up? If she's currently wound too tight, then just sit next to Auntie Harley. more

    This is a really fun issue. I love the tone and the attitude. The plot is fun and interesting. And the art is great. My only issues is that I wish Huntress and Black Canary had more to do. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn and The Birds of Prey #2 followed up the first issue brilliantly, though I think I actually enjoyed this one more. Not because the first issue wasn't good, but because this one expands on Harley's plans. It also explains just what it will take for her to fix her home and help her crew. The team has given us Harley's greatest [email protected](# you to the Joker, in a way that is actually detrimental to him. I look forward to seeing what issue #3 of Harley Quinn and The Birds of Prey has in store for us, now that more players are joining the fray! Read Full Review

    After a longer-than-expected wait between issues, Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner's R-rated revival of their Harley Quinn run returns with a second issue that somehow manages to be significantly crazier than the first " and that's saying something. Read Full Review

    I loved the ending of this issue, which sets things up for what I am sure will be a killer third issue. Especially given that Joker will not be working alone when he goes after his ex-girlfriend. Read Full Review

    Amanda Conner's art is fantastic. There is a lightness and energy to the art that engages the reader and the action is exciting to see. Read Full Review

    Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey #2 feels like yet another quintessential Quinn story. Read Full Review

    There's certainly some of the back-and-forth between Harley and Renee that could have been whittled down in the over-sized issue. The story also races right by giving a proper introduction to Harley's gal pal Elementia (who helps her both get away from Montoya and break into the Joker's vaults). Other than Harley messing around with the Joker's robot guards, there's not a lot of action here, although we do get a short sequence of Bat-suited Cassandra Cain taking on the Joker, but there's plenty of Harley being Harley.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jun 25, 2020

    Harley Quinn & the Birds of Prey #2 delivers some great, funny moments, but it also has portions where the book really feels as though it drags. Thankfully, the slower moments are earlier in the book, so by the time you reach the half-way point of the issue, all that's left is a fun, crazy adventure! No, this won't be everyone's cup of tea, but the title doesn't hide what it is, so it gives you a fair warning before you ever even open the book. Despite some shortcomings, I found this issue to be quite entertaining and funny, and I'm looking forward to the next chapter. Read Full Review

    A generally fine comic with some gorgeous artwork is brought down by so many weird continuity inconsistencies. They just smash comic and movie continuities together to tell a story that doesn't feel all that interesting. Read Full Review

    For someone who has Harley set as the avatar, I have very low tolerance for her post Paul Dini self. Aside from her reinvented regressed personality and sheer bloody stupidity, the overused accent is an important factor in making me want to punch a wall every time I read her dialogues.
    After reading the first page of the comic I was mildly annoyed. After reading the second I was growing progressively more tired and hopeless. But boy, oh boy, was there a surprise for me waiting on the third page... specifically one line: "I wanna go pontoon boatin' with Powwa Girl an' Wonda Woman".
    Kill me. Just kill me.

    No doubt DC's greenlit this book, alongside Azzarello's monstrosity filled with racial and sexual insensitivities, on more
