She’s a Manic
Harley has gone undercover to try and help figure out who has been killing off the homeless. Unlucky for the cannibals that were hired just to do that, she finds them. In a blood and gore fest of kick-assery, Harley Quinn shows that you don’t have to be a cannibal to be a psychopath. After bringing down the hosue, she picks up an injured Red Tool and gets ready to head home, to popcorn, hotdogs, and cotton candy.
Yes! This is how I like to see Harley. Just full on crazy with a hint of just being a boss. The art is fun as it should be, I’ll even ignore the fact that everyone has super long legs. The pages of the bloody fight with Harley running her mouth just felt so true to her character. I have to be honest I have not liked this book in the past, but this issue just might make me change my mind. It was fun, outrageous, and very Deadpool-esque, and I really liked it. The classic-looking story at the end was also a nice little nostalgia trip to add at the end of each issue.
She’s a Man Eater
Well she’s not a man eater in this case, this time it’s the man that is the eater. Heroes tend to take themselves somewhat seriously, so it’s nice to let loose and have anything go when you read a Harley Quinn comic. She’s a popular character right now and everyone is taking a free reign in how they interpret her. As long as she can hold her own, talk your ear off, and plays with her sanity, your interpretation will be good in my book.
