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.

This show is barking mad... and I love it. We left last week's episode on a cliffhanger, with the Decreator - a huge disembodied eyeball - high in the sky, disintegrating everything that met its gaze. Had our band of misfits failed, was Cloverton and the world doomed? Again? It's Snow JokeWith Jane and Cliff stranded in a magical realm inside a snow-globe (yes, you read that right) Larry, Cyborg, Rita and Kipling (guest star, Mark Sheppard) are left in a world that is slowly being, well... de-created.
Arch villain Mr. Nobody still has the Chief in his clutches, but how can his plans for world domination succeed, if there's no world left to dominate? Can this evil, bonkers, jigsaw-puzzle of a man put his …

"The Long Night" was arguably the most impressive episode in the history of T.V. I don't know what the budget or production time was for this episode, but it delivered a theatrical quality finish that has completely blown my mind.
There have been many movies over the years that failed to deliver close to the action or suspense we have just been witness to. Game of Thrones has grown into one of the biggest most popular franchises in the world, but let's not forget this is still a T.V. show. This is entertainment. The Night King and his Army of the undead where at the gates of Winterfell by the end of last weeks episode "A Knight of Seven Kingdoms." With this knowledge it's not a spoiler to assume this episode was going to be all out war. What I wasn't expecting was how much of the battle we were going to see, and from so many different points …
