Review by Philip Clark
Summary
“We’ll All Be Home For Christmas!” This is an excellent one off story that pits Harley against her biggest threat yet. Her family at Christmas! The chaos that ensues in this issue is something that most families can relate to, especially around the holidays.
Positives
I mean, just wow. I take my hat off to the creative team behind this issue. This has got to be the best issue of Harley Quinn I have ever read, and could even be one the best comics I’ve read in the last few months.
I am genuinely in love with this series right now. It is one that I have seen grow over the last couple of months. Humphries is doing wonderful things with Harley Quinn. All of the characters and plot lines that the writer has introduced have fit so well into the comic. What I mean by that is, sometimes characters get introduced and they don’t really fit the vibe of the comic. That’s not the case with Harley Quinn.
I have only seen the artwork go from strength to strength as well. This comic is going places, and I love being along for the journey!
Negatives
I don’t want to spoil anything for those that haven't yet their hands on this week’s Harley Quinn issue, but... Merlin’s Beard! Humphries pulls an absolute cracker (see what I did there?) in this issue, and I feel that we are all, Harley most importantly, deserving of an apology.
That's all I have to say on the matter.
Verdict
This issue is perfection. The best thing is, I can only see the comic getting stronger and better. All we need is a permanent artist on the title and I think we’d have one of the best DC comics on the shelves.
