Fangirls, I’ve been putting this issue off. I’ve been worried about Harley going anywhere near the Joker, and I knew that would be a big part of this issue (he was in the last issue and he’s on the cover of this one). I didn’t even feel up to the challenge today, but I finally got off my bum and read it. And it was far more satisfying than I expected.
Alright Fangirls. We’re back on the horse with Harley, and she’s on the mayor’s Back. This issue starts strong with HQ demanding to talk to the mayor. She thinks that he ordered the hit on Mason while he was in prison. After trying to save him, if you remember, she decided it would be best if he went to Arkham instead. But maybe that’s not the best idea.
Fangirls, the Clown Queen of Crime is back on the case of Sparrow, and remember who just entered? Deadshot. He’s there to collect some bounties, but Harley is not happy after he kills of her cowboy. And she isn’t afraid to let him know.
Fangirls, I’ll always have a sweet spot in my heart for the Gotham City Sirens. I like the way they play off of each other, their goofiness, and how badass they are (both individually and together). So when I saw that there was a one-shot of their road trip, how could I refuse?!
Fangirls, our favorite flipped out fruitcake is back with issue 20! After her road trip with the other two sirens (an issue I can’t seem to get my paws on), she’s on her way to LA to go after the daughter of one of her coworkers at the nursing home. As she travels across the country, we learn that Harley is terrible at flying; she’s fidgety and grumpy.
The other day, Fangirls, I sat down to read Harley Quinn, and started to have a feeling that I was reading the wrong one. I was looking at 20, and thinking to myself, this cover doesn’t make sense…shouldn’t she be going after the captain? When I looked up Harley’s covers, I realized that somewhere in my travels and vacations, I had picked up issue 20 before 19, and went into a panic. I wasn’t going to make it to a comic shop before today, and I didn’t know what to do. So I went onto DC Comic’s website, to see my options, and was reminded that digital comics exist! So I bought issue 19 on iTunes, and here we are!
Fangirls, I haven’t been to comic shop in about a month, which really stinks. But it also means that I don’t have the most recent Harley Quinn issue to review for you, so today it’s being substituted with Harley Quinn and Powergirl issues 1-3. I’m going to a shop at the end of the week for a Pre SPX party, so I’ll be able to pick up the current stuff then, but until then we’re sticking with HQ & PG.
