Ready or not, Harley Quinn is in a race against time to end The Joker’s reign of terror. Can she do it before he wreaks havoc in the Gotham Arena…and kills thousands of music fans attending the Event Horizon concert? More importantly, will she do it without ending The Joker’s life-or can she live with the consequences either way?

    The drawings by Badower and Suayan are very detailed and engaging. They really make you feel apart of the story. The choice to use color panels for the flashback sequences, and black and white for the present is fresh and interesting. Also, the hints of Read Full Review

    This week's finale brought a worthy conclusion to it all, one that balances its bombastic violence with some genuinely meaningful character moments. Read Full Review

    I'm reserving a lot of judgement because I know there's more to come. Being honest though, of the series as a whole, this chapter isn't a top favorite. It does move the story forward, and there's Dinah, but something feels off, particularly given how much work's gone into the build up of this story, and its characters. There have been very elaborate crimes committed and while, yes, what happens this issue is horrible" it seems disjointed. Read Full Review

    The story by Kami Garcia fails to thrill. I wish it had a little more pep to it rather than just seemingly going through the motions. The artwork by Mico Suayan and Jason Badower is still the best part of the book. Both artists are very accomplished and do a great job. I hope this has a really strong or just crazy ending. I fear that it will just be a standard one, however. Read Full Review

    Despite everything " despite the tone, the violence, the murder and abuse and the overwhelming edge " Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity is a very safe book, with a very safe conclusion. It's able to wow you at points " and if you liked the first issue, it definitely continues to satisfy that itch " but it's not particularly interested in going in unexpected directions, or justifying why its characters had to be Joker and Harley outside of their aesthetics. If you're going to read it, do it in a collected edition " then get back to me on if you liked it more than I did. As it stands, the journey that I began in 2019 ends here: with an abrupt, underwhelming and thoroughly expected climax. Read Full Review
