Review: Harley Quinn #62

Review: HARLEY QUINN #62
Writer: Sam Humphries

Review by Philip Clark

Summary

The game continues from last issue, only it’s no longer a game. Gotham City has been transformed by a spell performed by the Enchantress. That’s right, ladies and gentlemen! Enchantress is alive and kicking back!
Can Harley figure out how to save her friends and reverse the spell in time? Find out this week in Harley Quinn #62.

Positives

I love a good fantasy setting, especially if it’s an alternate universe to the one I already know. Alternative universes, or timelines, are my favourite things to read. This particular one is incredibly well written, and drawn.
I love how Humphries writes Harley Quinn. There’s so much depth to her, but it’s also simplistic. She just wants to help her friends and make sure that everyone is happy and enjoying themselves. This particular issue showcases that at it’s finest! Harley never backs down in her belief that she can help save Enchantress from herself, even after everything Enchantress did to get back at her.

Negatives

The only thing I’d say about this issue is that I felt like they could have pushed the story out a little more. I would have liked to have had more time fleshing out the world and the characters within it. Perhaps a mini-series could be made? I’d love that!

Verdict

I’m loving the current ‘Trials of Harley Quinn’ run, and everything Humphries is doing on the series. Not only has the writing been excellent, as has the artwork! Schmidt does a brilliant job once again in Harley Quinn #62, I really enjoy the cartoon vibe I get from him There are also different art styles in this specific issue in particular, which I loved reading through.
I’m loving everything that’s coming out of the creative team here.
