Harley's on to the next stop on her quest to find out how the Joker is haunting her from beyond the grave-and that's the 51st state of Atlantis! Sure, the city under the sea is all Starbucks and water-logged hipsters now, but since Aquaman was the last person to see the Clown Prince alive, can the King of the Sea provide Harley with some much-needed answers? And will they come in time before the Laughing Boys make their ultimate move?

    This series again and again has enthralled me and made me sit back like I am reading a Where's Waldo book looking so avidly trying to spot all the different references they use. Every issue there is more and more to look at and humor that makes you laugh. This is a series that so far has had it all and I am gearing up for just what this team has next! Read Full Review

    It's not all fun and games though. The artwork on the Joker fish is horrifying in the best way. Oddly enough, it's the giant whale mouth agape that's the most disturbing thing on the page. And then there's that close-up on the Joker himself on the very last panel. This series may be funny, but it's never lost just how big the stakes are.I feel like I'm repeating myself on every review of Old Lady Harley, but it's really just so good. I'm sad this mini-series is about to come to an end, but I know it's going to be one fantastic finale. Read Full Review

    Old Lady Harley #4 takes the story to true dark comedy status. It provides some necessary answers and takes the time to set up the series final issue remarkably well! Read Full Review

    Old Lady Harley (2018-) #4 moves the story towards its conclusion in typical outrageous fashion. I'm looking forward to next issues conclusion. Read Full Review

    I am still onboard with this alt-timeline Harley story filled with inappropriate gross-out humor, but I hope next month's finale is more like the first two issues rather than the last two we have gotten.  There have been less chuckles lately as Frank Tieri rushes to the finish line, but there still is Inaki Miranda's art to hold things together and the cliffhanger promises a crazy ending.

    Come for Mayor Lobo, ignore the bad neon tackiness, and stay for a truly interesting step forward towards finding out what the heck is really going on with the Joker. Read Full Review

    There's nothing in this story that we haven't seen many times before and nothing that stands out as a good Harley story. Read Full Review

    This is Harley Quinn. So therefore it sucks.

    It had an oddly Marvel feel to it, but some of the jokes were actually not too bad.

    This short series slowly comes to an end, and very similarly to Gail Simone's Plastic Man from last year, it doesn't seem to lead anywhere. Yeah, I get it, it has and idea, which is Harley being old in a dystopian future, but that's about it. There's no substance to it I can see, no end goal worth waiting for. Each issue feels like a meaningless filler episode of a soap opera - and the same can be said about Harley's regular solo series.

    And the sad thing is, I like the overall concept. I do, I pointed this out while reviewing each and every one of previous issues. I think it has potential, and if only it was competently written, it could have been a great piece of satire. Maybe someone will pick up the idea once this run is over more
