Review: Harley Quinn #42
[Editor’s Note: This review may contain spoilers]
Writer: Frank Tieri
Review by Philip Clark
“Old Lady Harley” takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. Harley’s been out of town for a few years and New York has been turned into an apocalyptic hellhole. The Gang of Harleys have split and each taken a part of the Big Apple, meeting together to see who takes control of the city for good.
Harley certainly hasn’t lost her touch in the years that she’s been gone. Tieri continues to provide stories that blend the crazy and the heart-felt brilliantly. This story is a one-of issue, but leaves you wanting more. Tieri drops multiple names and situations while going through the exposition. After reading this issue, all I could think about was how great it would be if we got a story arch leading up to these events.
This issue fast-paced and action packed. Tieri and Mauricet give us everything we need in a filler issue. The artwork supports the writing and pace of the comic fantastically. I’ve read the issue at least five times, and I’m sure that I’ve still not got every reference thrown in.
There is a lot thrown into this issue. From all the references that Tieri makes, to Mauricet putting some references into the art on each panel. As I said previously, I’ve re-read the issue multiple times and every time I find something new. This can be a little too much if you’re just looking for a quick pick up read.
“Old Lady Harley” is a great one-off story. It offers a nice respite from Harley’s main timeline. This comic is crazy, weird and wonderful. Much like the main character herself. A definite pick up for those hardcore Harley fans, or those that enjoy an apocalyptic adventure.

Interview panel led by Steve J. Ray, with a gathering of Comic/TV Media Journalists. I've spoken to some amazing people over the last couple of years; writers, artists, costume designers, and actors from some of my favorite TV shows. It's no secret that I'm a huge comic-book fan, and one of the TV series that's based on and inspired by a comics title - but has gone on to be so much more - is The Walking Dead . At a recent Comic-Con in London, I had the great opportunity of leading a panel where some fellow journalists and I spoke with Madison, Matthew and Macsen Lintz, three siblings who played Sophia and both iterations of Henry on the show. The eldest, Madison Lintz (born 1999) played Sophia Peletier - Carol's daughter - in the first two seasons. She's also well known for playing Maddie Bosch in the Amazon series Bosch . She started acting at the age of six, filming commercials and voice-overs. Matthew (born 2001) took over the role of Henry from
SUBMITTED FOR YOUR APPROVAL… The Twilight Zone , a television series that shows no signs of letting up, is still going strong 60 years since it first debuted on CBS in 1959. Created by the already popular writer Rod Serling, the show became a series with an infinite lifespan. The Twilight Zone is now 60 years young and still has a massive appeal to those who love a bit of twisted, comedic, moralistic and, at times horrifying, science fiction. I have been a fan of this show for many years, from the original to the latest version by Jordan Peele. It was probably in the 1980’s that I first came across this show and I was amazed. Back then, just a teenager, I thought black and white shows were old and ‘fuddy duddy’ (as my kids would say nowadays). That was until my late mam (who was always there when I found my love for various things as a youngster) turned on the tv and an episode of the TZ was showing. I always remember the first episode I saw being "Ti
The Spider-Man Clone saga is one of the most reviled story lines ever. It featured the return of Spider-Man's clone Ben Reilly, but also dragged Spider-Man through one of the strangest, series of conspiracies and narratives that the franchise have ever seen. But... is it really as bad as the internet would have you believe? Come with us as we review the Clone Saga story arc by story arc as we uncover how one of comics' most infamous series holds up today.

So far, the story has been relatively easy to follow and engaging for the most part. However, "Ka
