Review by Philip Clark
After a vacation from hell, Harley ends up on Apokolips. The perfect planet for her chaotic, wild personality. That is, were it not for the fact that she doesn’t really do too well when people try to control her. Going along with Granny Goodness’ wishes is all when and good, especially after Harley was given a sweet hammer. But when Granny wants her to do something Harley doesn’t like. Well, we all know how Harley likes doing her own thing, and that doesn’t sit too well with Granny Goodness.
This comic run is just crazy fun. Harley Quinn, on Apokolips, doing Harley Quinn things. What more could you possibly want? It’s just pure chaotic craziness, and it’s great! The colours are big and bold, just like the character the title is around. The supporting characters compliment Harley wonderfully.
Humphries and Timms have done a fantastic job with this issue, and this run in general. I love Timms’ art style, the way he draws Harley really brings her outlandish personality to life. Humphries also does an excellent job at bringing Harley to life. The way he writes the comic, it’s like I’m hearing Harley as if she’s in the room with me.
The pair do a great job at managing Harley’s personality, all aspects of her personality. I especially enjoy the way she goes from happy-go lucky to completely sincere. Everything about Harley’s character is just brilliantly portrayed by Humphries and Timms.
Like I said in the previous review, the story just doesn’t really feel like it should be a Harley Quinn story. It feels like a story much more suited to an intergalactic character. While the story is fun and entertaining, it just doesn’t feel right with Harley at the centre of it.
Overall I am enjoying this run of Harley Quinn. I look forward to reading what kind of crazy chaos she gets up to on Apokolips. Personally, I just hope it doesn’t drag on too long, and that she gets back down to Earth.

It's very rare that the worlds of geeks and music collide in a powerful way, but Professor Elemental has made that happen.
'School of Whimsy' sees Brighton's finest export solidify his career with his strongest album to date. Over a ten year journey Paul Alborough has helped create the phenomenon of Chap-Hop, a mix of hip hop and a tongue-in-cheek take on English gentry.
The character of Professor Elemental has allowed Paul to push the boundaries of his music, as well as allowing him to show the world his love of anything nerdy. His songs are littered with references to superheroes and comics, and have a huge underlying message of positivity.
Luckily, Fantastic Universes' resident music ninja Scott Hamilton managed to chat not only with Paul, but also with the crazy genius that is Professor Elemental. Here's part one where we talk to Paul about his musical career, his love of comics and what we can expect from the Professor in the future…
I make it no secret, readers, that I love two games more than the air I breathe. Dungeons and Dragons, and Magic: the Gathering. Despite being made by the same publishing company, Wizards of the Coast, they've made almost no crossed streams.
The talk of Wizards wanting to publish a new setting for their supplemental campaigns left many wondering where we can go. This is no mere Plane Shift - like those of Zendikar or Kaladesh, leaving us with races and statistics, and prompts on where to go. This is a full, world guide. And it's RAVNICA!
Next to nothing is known about this supplement. It appeared on Brazilian Amazon then later on an American version of the site. The product description features very accurate portrait of the Acumenopolis in the heart of every Magic player. All we can do is speculate.
As an avid player of both games, I have exceedingly high expectations for this supplement. It needs to deliver new races seen on Ravnica. Goblins of…
