Product Description

Review

"The strongest aspect of this issue is Conner's character work. Like the script, her characters are expressive in all the right ways, understated, and inherently emotional." "MTV Geek"
"The secret to this book's surprisingly sweet appeal is Amanda Conner." "Newsarama"
"[Conner's] work is so irresistibly beautiful and evocative." "Craveonline""

I absolutely love Harley Quinn and these comics put her in a whole new light. She's modern, independent, fashionable and sassy. She's still an absolute goof-ball getting herself into tonnes of trouble with a crazy violent streak I will love and this is way worth reading! The art is fantastic, the story line is clever and well written and if your not already a massive Harley Quinn fan, you soon will be.

This graphic novel uses a unique, light hearted approach to give insight into an otherwise dark character.

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.

Looking at DC objectively right now, besides a great many other, bigger fixes, they need a few things: 1) with the Joker going AWOL at the end of Death of the Family, they need a prominent clown character as they’re kind of known for that, 2) they need a female character series to at least attempt to balance out the overwhelmingly male centric titles, and 3) they desperately need a fun character – too many New 52 titles are dark, grim, gritty and miserable. So it makes perfect sense to give Harley Quinn her own series as she ticks all of those boxes – and whaddayaknow? This is the first (non-Scott Snyder/Grant Morrison) New 52 title in a while that’s really enjoyable… or at least half of it is anyway.

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.

This great new addition to DC's New 52 reboot has given Joker's girlfriend Harley Quinn the platform for her own adventures. In the wake of the death of the Joker, Harley has embarked on a new life in Coney Island, NY. Finding herself surrounded by literal freaks, this collection sees her embark on a series of wacky adventures, that see her taking on an endless parade of hitmen, ageing KGB agents and evil animal pounds.
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.

The story running through issues #1-8 of DC Comics’ New 52 ‘Harley Quinn’ series is collected, along with issue #0, as HARLEY QUINN HC VOL 01 HOT IN THE CITY (Harley Quinn (Numbered)). This volume sees a new look and a new direction for Harley, as she says goodbye to her old-fashioned character and look as seen in such forgettable titles as Batman Mad Love And Other Stories TP, Harley Quinn Preludes And Knock Knock Jokes TP, and Harley Quinn: Vengeance Unlimited TP. Here we have high-definition photo-realist artwork (I’m not sure what the correct description is for this new-fangled CG art), extreme, graphic violence, and prominently-displayed talking beavers. Who needs subtlety when you have a huge fan-boy audience who just loved Kick-Ass and Deadpool? Well, to be honest, they do try to show Harley’s softer side, but the vulnerability and self-awareness that haunted her in those other titles is completely missing. Harleen is completely lost in Harley in this series (whereas in the current Deadpool series, for example, he really does have to face up to some horrible events in his past). Now, comic-books are an industry that has to follow the market, or else face cancellation, and if this is what the market wants, then this is what the market will get. I preferred the more ‘cartoony’ look of the character, because it looked right for her personality.Read more ›
