Special Harley Quinn Sized Issue!


We start this review out with me having to write a shit load of artist's names.  Please don't do this to me again.  Plus I had no idea how to write a review for a issue like this, but I think I put to much thought into it, and realized I just had to keep it simple stupid.  So here we are, starting our Harley Quinn solo experience in the style only these artists could give you.  I'll explain to the best of my ability, but this issue is pretty much out there to give your eyes an orgasm.  So go out, get it, and check it out.  

Explain It!:

This is normally the part of the review where I explain the issue to you, and try to add some humorous content.  Emphasis on the try.  But for this strange, meta, fourth wall breaking issue I'm just going for something short and sweet to explain it the best way possible.  Since the story is broken up by pretty much each page becoming something new, and Harley just looking for the best artist to give her life what we get is.....

Remember the Daffy Duck cartoon where he's just waiting for the show to start, and the artist keeps fucking with him?  Well that's what we get here, with the only exception Harley seems to be in control of whats going on around her by suggesting to the artist what she wants.  Or where she complains to the artist enough that a new one jumps in.  We get different styles, a lot of laughs, the creators making fun of themselves, and even laughs at how low certain book's sales are.  

In the end, after all the madness, and creative depredation we see that Harley was left a property in Coney Island, and I guess this is where the book will pick up for issue #1.

Bits and Pieces:

While not being ones conventional comic, this was a great way to pull fans in.  Guess what everybody.  I think I found my new fun book.  In a DCU where everything seems to be dark, and miserable, this title with all the murder, and chaos, that this character is bound to bring could be the light hearted delight I was waiting for.  So see you next month, and we'll find out if the merriment continues.

9/10
