When murder is your art, it's not enough to leave behind a body-the only true satisfaction lies in creating a display worthy of your genius. But elaborate crime scenes also lend themselves to analysis. While the GCPD might not find all the clues, forensic psychiatrist and profiler Harley Quinn is getting closer to the truth...and the killer. 8.5" x  10.875"

    AIPT - David Brooke May 5, 2020

    Given the way this book ends, most (myself included) are going to be dying for the next issue, especially with an irregular release schedule likely continuing with the pandemic unlikely to stop any time soon. The story is coming together nicely this issue and shouldn't be missed. The development of Harley as an expert forensic psychiatrist and profiler is an inspired choice that's paying off big time.

    Issue #4 of Criminal Sanity follows Harley as she gets closer than ever in figuring out who the Joker is. At the same time, he's seemingly leaving breadcrumbs that lead to him on purpose. Their inevitable meeting is getting really close. Read Full Review

    Kami Garcia's narrative and Jason Badower and Mico Suayan's art work together in complex harmony, and help tee up this miniseries for a compelling second act. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 7, 2020

    This series is pitch black, without an iota of light or hope. Is that something you want to read? That mileage will vary heavily, but those who delve into this bleak world will be rewarded with a pretty effective story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 5, 2020

    Overall I thought the issue was okay. It was not bad in any sense but it wasn't great either. You can read through it extremely fast but it moves the story forward slowly. Everything looks great. There were a couple of bombshells revealed kind of, great cameo, and nice nods. I think that this issue will flow well in trade but it was not anything spectacular by itself. I still think you should check it out. Read Full Review

    I understand that people have disagreed with me on my assessment of this series, but I hope I've been able to articulate how I feel about it; at least, well enough for people to understand where I'm coming from. While I'm still not a big fan, this issue gives me hope that I'll have a good time with the rest of the series " if it embraces the fact that the "realism" of the story isn't where I'm having fun.

    There is not much else. Hopefully Garcia has something big planned. Right now this book is lacking. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson May 17, 2020

    As we approach the halfway point of Joker / Harley: Criminal Sanity, I have to wonder where this series is going as it feels like it's just meandering. It's a very dry thriller with no real heart or emotion to it. Even though we're familiar with these characters " or at least who they are loosely based on " it's hard to invest in their story here as there's nothing to really grab onto. Read Full Review
