Harley Quinn #14

Writers: Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti
Artists: Khari Evans and John Timms
Colors: Alex Sinclair
Letters: Dave Sharpe

Every action has its consequence:

This issue starts with a meeting of Vampires hired to take out the homeless to drive down the population. Elsewhere Harley Sinn has been released from Arkham and sent on a mission to kill two targets the first of which is Randy Houser. Now onto the main story, giant ants have busted a cocoon holding Zorcrom above ground and he has escaped it. After killing the giant ants that helped him escape he decides to make this world his, so Harley points him in the right, well wrong direction and he takes off. Now on the rooftop Harley explains how this might be her fault but he's a super problem now, Atlee shows up from the world Zorcrom came from to clean up the mess Harley created… Next Issue: The Bottomless Pits.

The Confessional:

This issue is full of comedy and I found myself laughing through most of it. I absolutely love the Trump reference when Harley is pointing Zorcrom towards the White House, comedy GOLD!!! That joke alone raised my score up one-star point alone. I have been told by a lot of people if you like Harley Quinn you'll love these books and if not you make just like them. If this issue is how they are running the whole series even people who may not be Harley fans will love it too. Now this issue had a little bit of setup for the future in the beginning and middle, honestly the Vampire part seems interesting enough, but the Harley Sinn section has me wondering who is the second target, who got her out of Arkham, and why did they choose her? Now back to art, these two artist are fantastic and you can tell a major difference in their styles, but both work well for this comic. The colorist is fantastic, it doesn't muddy down the art, in fact it enhances it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in a good laugh:
