    Harley Quinn: Make 'Em Laugh #1 is a visual treat full of humor, overt insanity and wacky irreverence. As Gotham's most notorious villains continue to arrive, it quickly becomes easy to see that no one can steal the show from Harley. Read Full Review

    While I can't say I'm excited to have another series focused on Harley Quinn, the potential for this is certainly there. I'm admittedly hopeful for a rotating group of writers and artists so that people can do some interesting one-off stories but if this is the team I'm not going to be unhappy because this has a different enough feeling that I can get into its groove as time goes on. Russell's low-key Harley is amusing to watch while Braga's artwork is great as always, even if she has to deal with illustrating the weird characters that populate Head Shrinks world. It's an odd issue overall but it does leave me curious to see where it's going to go. Read Full Review

    I really wanted to like this. I really did. I was rooting for Russell to be somebody who got Harley's voice and could "make 'em (and me) laugh", but it was bad. The art is good, especially when it comes to Clayface, but Harley doesn't look like herself. She looks like a 23 year old Instagram cosplayer trying to get likes by using the character's popularity. I suppose the overall story concept is actually pretty good for a fun one-shot digital only issue, but everything from the dialogue and the way the story was told is just... not. Also, that museum is looking for a tragedy and a lawsuit in the children's section. Read Full Review
