Format: Paperback
The fragile alliance of semi-reformed bad girls - Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn, the Gotham City Sirens - fractures for good in this book as Harley goes to Arkham to face down puddin' and winds up inevitably falling for him all over again. Ivy and Catwoman fall out over going back to save Harley and the girls have a showdown in Gotham.

The book is kind of a novel idea of putting the three characters together and making them kind of heroes especially as only one could really have a claim to that label and even then very shakily. That said, with nothing really major happening that the usual hi-jinks you'd expect from a Batman spin-off book, the book feels a bit flat and the tension a bit contrived. You know no one character is going to die so all the fighting seems a bit forced.

That said, Peter Calloway introduces an interesting idea into Ivy and Harley's relationship - does Ivy love Harley? When the characters begin pairing off with their respective halves (Batman/Catwoman, Joker/Harley, Alyce Sinner/Black Mask) Ivy is noticeably alone. It doesn't go further than an insinuation but development of the idea might make Ivy's character that much deeper.

"Gotham City Sirens: Division" is a decent read if you enjoy the Batman universe like I do, putting in the spotlight side characters who normally don't receive this much attention, but it's not essential reading to all but big fans of Gotham.

Nothing great…Just another tale of some psychotics of Gotham 4 April 2014
By Attidude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the first time I’m reading a “Gotham City Sirens” title (and definitely it’s the last time). The main characters are Catwoman , Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, who have (or rather had) become like a team. When I bought this book my feeling was that Ivy and Harley had reformed ( Catwoman was never a bad guy according to me) and that they take on some bad guys. But sadly it was nothing like that. It was like Ivy and Harley have hardly reformed..they’re still the same psychotics that I remembered them to be. Morever, it was disappointing for me to see that despite the true nature of these two, still Catwoman has a soft corner for them. Though I’m not a huge Catwoman fan but from what I recall from having read about her, she would never team up with psychotics. In fact, she would hardly team up with anyone, for that matter . I’ve been reading Batman comics since decades. I have NEVER seen /read any story before to indicate any kind of friendship between these characters. These three have been brought together just for this book/title. And I must say it’s a poor concept.
There are still some more things about the story that I didn’t like. I’ll mention them below but since it will include spoilers, I am putting a header for the same.
SPOILER ALERT – BEGIN
Issues # 20 and 21 are mainly based on Harley Quinn and are told from her perspective. In the beginning of the story , it’s indicated that Harley wants to take revenge on the Joker, that is, kill him. Yeah, right. As if that’ll ever happen. It was just a nonsense concept to make into a story. Any one reads Batman comics knows that Harley will do anything to make the joker happy and here it was being trying t show (briefly) that Harley wants to kill the joker.
More than this, I found another part of the story disgusting. When Harley breaks into Arkham Asylum to reach to the joker, she is stopped by Aaron Cash, head of Arkham security. And when Cash tries to stop her, she tells him that Joker was the one who killed his first-born. Cash gets shocked and allows Harley to go, thinking that she’ll kill the Joker. But does that happen. Of course not. I got angry with this part because Cash, who never knew before that Joker had killed his first born, allows Harley to go thinking she would kill the Joker. And also, the reader, till this point, because of the narrative, gets almost certain that Harley would kill the Joker. But the minute she opens his cell, they hug each other. Disgusting. Maybe since the whole story is about psychotics, it’s not right on my part to expect some justice here. Anyway, it was disappointing for me.
Issue #22 is about Catwoman. Now this was the most confusing part of the book for me. In this issue, suddenly it seems as if a new story is in progress and there is no proper exposition provided as to what exactly is going on. It is said that Catwoman has to face two super-powered individuals (Azrael and Crusader) and pass one test. And the test? Her sister, Magdalene, asks Selina/Catwoman to kill the former. Selina refuses and so fails the test. And then Azrael, Crusader and Magdalene quietly go away. Ridiculous story.
In Issues # 23 and 24, Catwoman and Batman go inside Arkham Asylum to capture the convicts. We see the Joker happily chopping off limbs of security guards and Harley happily enjoying it. Then, we get to see that Alice Sinner, director of Arkham Asylum to be in love wih Jeremiah Arkham (current Black Mask). And later, it is never shown what happens to these two? Do they get away? Or are they both arrested? And do the Police ever get to know about Sinner’s alliance with Black Mask? This was overlooked in the story.
By the end of issue #24 Joker, Harley and Ivy are all captured by Catwoman and Batman. And in the next issue itself, Ivy manages to easily escape from prison. And she takes Harley along with her. Surprisingly, in the previous issue there was a fight between Ivy and Harley where Harvey beats Ivy up and now Ivy is still willing to forgive Harley. Insane.
In the end of last issue, Catwoman lets Ivy and Harley escape. And Batman, though very much present on the scene and near to Catwoman, does Nothing! That was bad story-telling. And the fact that Catwoman literally let Ivy and Harley go away because well, maybe because they were oncefriends or whatever, is bit difficult to digest. The Catwoman I remember would never team up wit psychotics.
SPOILER ALERT – END
There should have been a “Parental Advisory” on this book as it’s no suitable for young kids, especially as it has a scene where Joker is chopping off limbs.
I really felt the story in this book disgusting. Don’t waste your time and money on this one. Maybe those who love psychotic characters might like this book.

Sirens is one of the greatest off-the-wall series' I've read. I am a HUGE Ivy fan and Harley/Catwoman are not far behind. These books are all fantastic.
Great Ending to a short series 2 Nov 2013

The story was pretty great. I thought that the ending was suitable, although I'm still very sad that Guillem March stopped doing the inside art.
