Harley Quinn, as a book, has struggled to find its tone, but it’s slowly coming into focus, especially now that Harley has dual jobs in roller derby and… er… psychiatric counseling for the elderly. This issue gets into that part of the life of Harley Quinn with predictably disastrous results.
One thing the book hasn’t struggled with, though, is artists: It simply has impeccable taste in art. The first three issues were done by Chad Hardin, who particularly enjoyed drawing the puppies Harley surrounds herself with, and this one is by Stephane Roux, who DC particularly loves to use for covers; you might remember his run on Birds of Prey and his interior art on Zatanna. Roux rarely gets to show off his skills beyond drawing superheroines, so it’s fun to see him get to stretch a bit.
Harley Quinn #4 will be on the stands next week. But for now, enjoy a preview of Harley singing and possibly wrecking another family’s life!
