Ah yes, another Harley Quinn graphic novel. It's no secret that Harley Quinn is my favorite character. So when I saw the new Harley Quinn collection was coming out, I had to scoop it up.
I wasn't left disappointed. I really like the artwork in this volume. It's weirdly bright and colorful; two words that one wouldn't normally associate with Gotham's residents. Nonetheless, I like the change, since I tend to find other Batman-related comic books way too dark and murky for my liking (I know, I know).
The writing itself was okay. I felt like Harley Quinn is kind of coming into her own a bit in this volume from where she was in the previous volumes, and I liked that about her. This collection contains two "normal length" comics and throws in three short "specials". I actually really liked the specials, and I'm glad they were included. They were a nice surprise added to the expected issues.
It was enough to make me excited to read the next installment to see where things go from here. If you're a Harley fan like me, I'd recommend checking it out. If you're a diehard fan of the darker artwork associated with Batman/Arkham/Gotham, then this might not be the series for you.
I received a copy from DC Comics in exchange for my honest review. Thank you!
