    Harley Quinn: Black, White, and Redder #1 gives a slew of amazing artwork and stories to enchant. Plus there is a whole other book still yet to come. If this book is any indication of what is to come, bring it. I would disappear with these stories any day. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 24, 2023

    Harley Quinn is hit-or-miss. She can be a lot of fun if shes caught at the right angles. Its really, really difficult to do so, though. Shes such an erratic personality. What works well with one writer might not necessarily work really well with another. The cool thing about an anthology is that if one creative team doesnt necessarily have a fun relationship with the clown girl, theres a good chance that shes going to get along with at least one of the other two. In this issue, that connection is made quite well with Maguire and Zdarsky. Read Full Review

    Despite my blasting the last story, I will say that it was nice to read a Harley book where I could recognize that I was reading Harley Quinn. Noticeably, every writer so far has chosen to write Harley as a villain here. That shows how people are still viewing the character apart from editorial constraints. However, we can still see the confusion about who Harley is even supposed to be as a character. We can also see that DC just doesn't have the greatest pool of writers to pull from right now.Score: 6.5/10 Read Full Review
