Harley Quinn & Powergirl Issues 1-3

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.
