Synopsis: This month on ‘Harley Quinn & the Birds of Prey’. There was no way Harley was going to make it out of Gotham City without coming face to face with The Joker… and just as she’s taken all his money, he’s determined to take something that means even more to her!
Having stolen the joker’s money and caused no end of havoc across Gotham. Harley Quinn finds herself held captive by Mr. J. and his new squeeze Harley Sinn. Additionally, the Joker has also captured Harley’s one true love Poison Ivy. Ain’t payback a bitch?
While Harley is been tortured or is that tickled. The Birds of Prey find a battle royale against most of Gotham’s bad guys in their mission to rescue Harley Quinn.
Amanda Connor wastes no time in hitting us with the visuals. Firstly, we see a fantastic splash page of The Birds of Prey doing battle with Clayface, Two-Face, The Penguin, and tons of other well-known villains. It’s a page made up of violence and mayhem. Also, a touch of humiliation for The Penguin.
The action doesn’t end there. We get some crazy visuals of The Joker and Harley Sinn as they torture Harley Quinn. The final moments that take place in that room are really well-drawn. In fact, we see real growth. If you get what I mean.
Ain’t no doubt about it. Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Connor hit us with a fantastic issue this month, which has more wisecracks than you can shake a stick at. Seeing the Joker and Harley at odds was lots of fun. But seeing the reunion of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy was kind of sweet.
Bring on the next issue. I can’t wait.
