"The secret to this book's surprisingly sweet appeal is Amanda Conner." "Newsarama"
"[Conner's] work is so irresistibly beautiful and evocative." "Craveonline""

This is not the dark, evil Harley Quinn of Suicide Squad and is potentially aimed at a more casual audience than some of the other batman universe spin offs. She is portrayed here as a witty, kind hearted soul that is still an absolutely brutal killer.
The artwork is bold and eye catching, bright without being garish. The storylines move along at a good pace and there is enough here to keep the reader engaged without ever seeming too heavy going.
It's a very good example of an alternative character arc that does not rely on the reader having read the entire new 52 backlog. The book isn't necessarily a must read, more a complimentary piece to fans of the character but that's no bad thing.
This could be a good entry level book to new comic readers, and, at the price it's going for on kindle it's worth a go.
I'll be reading book two.
Because while the series starts on a high with the #0 issue where multiple artists draw the comic and Harley has a brilliant back and forth convo with Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, each issue gets progressively worse so that it became a real struggle to make it through the last chapter.
But let’s talk about the good first half because it really is good. Harley’s sat in her storage locker, reading comics and eating junk food before going into a sugar coma where she imagines herself as different things – a rock star, a ninja, a giant robot, etc. – with each page being drawn by an amazing artist. I won’t list all 17 but you’ve got legendary artists like Walt Simonson, Bruce Timm and Darwyn Cooke rubbing shoulders with Becky Cloonan, Tony Daniel and the main artist on this title, Chad Hardin, with the co-writer of the series, Amanda Conner, contributing pages too. Suffice it to say this is a great looking comic and, with Harley breaking the fourth wall a la Deadpool, really fun too.Read more ›
Excellent artwork really brings Harley to life with her unique zany style epitomised through the stories and dialogue. As a bonus the opening chapter sees a host of DC's best writers take on the character in different styles of artwork.
A great character and a great book.
