In Review: Harley Quinn & the Birds of Prey (2020-) #2

Over the course of her illustrious and very high-class career, Harley’s met pretty much every super-villain who ever worked in Gotham City. Some hate her. Some love her. But none of that’s gonna matter once they see how many zeroes there are on the bounty The Joker’s offering for her head!

Synopsis: Over the course of her illustrious and very high-class career, Harley’s met pretty much every super-villain who ever worked in Gotham City. Some hate her. Some love her. But none of that’s gonna matter once they see how many zeroes there are on the bounty The Joker’s offering for her head!

 

The Story

Picking up from the last issue. Harley Quinn is essentially homeless due to her not being on time with her mortgage payments the corrupt moneylender she owed money too burned her home down. Now Harley is out for some serious payback and knows just where she can steal the money to rebuild, but the talk will not be easy because it involves stealing from her homicidal psycho ex-boyfriend. The Joker. Lucky for her Detective Montoya and the Birds of Prey are going after Mr. J for other reasons, which will be just enough to create a bit of a distraction.

 

The Artwork

Amanda Conner provides the art for this issue and it is very much in keeping with the manic style and look that you’d expect from a Harley Quinn story. Of particular note is the image of the Joker’s vault and the killer robots he had protecting it.

 

Overall

The team of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti managed to give us a compelling and fun continuation of the story, which not only highlights Harley Quinn but also gives us a little more action from the Birds of Prey and Detective Montoya. The action is so fast that you are not quite sure how things will pan out from moment to moment, which is a big part of the fun.

I loved the ending of this issue, which sets things up for what I am sure will be a killer third issue. Especially given that Joker will not be working alone when he goes after his ex-girlfriend.
