    Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity #2 made me eat my words,but in a really good way. I asked for shocks and awe, and got them in droves. I was pleasantly surprised by every bit of new information we received, and am so glad the teaser tells us we'll be getting even more in the next issue. The artwork alone makes every second of waiting worth it. Bravo! Read Full Review

    If you liked the first issue and were worried that the momentum would not maintain into the second, you can put those fears down to rest.  This issue continues to be amazing and my favorite Black Label book so far.  With realistic logic applied to a well-written story showcased by fantastic art, this is a book well worth the read.  Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 1, 2020

    A good second issue that gives us plenty of the Joker. This is one of the freshest takes on Harley Quinn you'll read. The crime procedural angle works perfectly with these characters. Don't miss it. Read Full Review

    The story is pretty standard although it does have some nice twists and turns. The artwork by Mayhew and Suayan is the best part. These two artists have created one hell of a look for this piece. I look forward to seeing what they come up with next in this story. Read Full Review

    Despite a misstep, this is still a solid mystery comic putting a unique twist on the classic Harley Quinn and Joker relationship. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Jan 2, 2020

    To my eye, I definitely felt like there was an improvement in this issue from the previous one, though I only really felt it the second time I read it with a clearer head. I think it can grow into something quite good, and it's quite possible that the entire story will be better than the sum of its parts " but I think some clichs and ineffective storytelling methods currently hold it back, at least for now. I'm glad to see it's getting more people into crime stories, though! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Lizzy Garcia Jan 1, 2020

    So far, the series is wildly different from anything else currently taking place in Gotham City. Even though it features classic Batman character, Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity is a hyper-realistic series that fans of criminal investigation series and true crime will still enjoy.

    This series is definitely adding something interesting to DC Black Label, and we'll just have to wait and see if it sticks the landing. Read Full Review

    The art in this comic is great, but the story is quite slow.
    Harley‘s investigations bring her closer to the murderer& I don’t know if I am going to like this version of Joker. It might be the art, but he reminds me a lot of Leto Joker, what is bad. However we havent seen much of Joker yet, so it’s too early to judge him I guess. We also see some camoes by other villains like Scarecrow & Zsasz, which I enjoyed. Harley working with Gordon is also interesting to read. The beginning of the story also reminds me a little of the Hannibal TV show, but Harley just doesnt feel like the character at all. I know this is still Harleen, but it was mentioned in many comics, that Harleen wasnt a genius, but a cheater. This comic tries to por more

    Too bad this comic couldn’t steal compelling characters while it was busy stealing clichés and ideas from every crime drama it could find.

    -The opening page as well as the murder in general was really creepy and well-done.

    -Mayhew's art is still really impressive.

    THE BAD:

    -This series went downhill really fast.

    -The black and white art took a turn for the worse.

    -The pacing was ridiculously bad here.

    -I've lost all interest in the story and characters.

    -Joker's origin story was really weak.

    -Ew. The design of the Joker is really bad.

    This is a good story that really doesn't benefit at all from being tied to Harley and Joker.

    I enjoyed the first issue more, but a good read IMO. Art is still phenomenal and I’m enjoying the more realistic take on the characters so far. Not the typical Harleen, no, but definitely an intriguing take.

    I read the first issue: Boring af

    This issue I haven't read yet, I saw the Joker's design. I am not gonna read this. He looks like some high school bully in clown make up, like what the fuck? He looks great on the cover.

    This isn't very good. This is an original story with DC characters pasted over it. If that story was extremely good, I wouldn't mind all that much. But this story is mediocre and slow.
