Review by Kendra Hale
When we left Book Six, Harley was in a forced confrontation with John Kelly, who had moseyed his way into GCPD with the express purpose of a conversation. Both sides of the table were dealing with a lot emotionally, none of which was easy in the slightest. We were left on a cliff-hanger and Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity #7 puts us in a race against time. Let’s dive in!
Questions are being answered, but the crescendo’s far from over as Harley tries to hunt down Kelly, as he prepares for his grand finale. Front row tickets included.
There’s a lot going on in this issue, to say the least. Everything’s coming home to roost. Will Harley be able to live with her decisions? Only time will tell. She’s certainly in foreign territory, and events are hitting close to home. The GCPD are struggling as the body count continues to rise, and watching the pieces fall is fascinating to say the least.
We’re winding closer to the end, and edge of my seat doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel about this series. The team have given us a lot of layers that make the story flow, and twist. It’s stunning, to say the least, as the trauma rears its head. The part that’s struck the deepest chord with me is the determination Harley has in this issue. After Kelly’s back on the streets, she’s almost giving herself a pep talk in order to justify her choices. It’s a deep and personal moment, and it was lovely.
Mico Suayan and Jason Badower continue to impress with their artwork styles, that honestly seem made for this story. It never ceases to astound me with just how they express so much between their line work and Annette Kwok’s beautifully subtle colors.
The suspense just keeps building and Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity #7 is setting up big things to come. I’m curious to see what Kelly has planned and, with the end in sight, events are sure to wow.
I’ve loved this series from the beginning, and this issue just builds the anticipation.
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
“ Off The Clock “ Writer: Katie Cook Artist: Butch Mapa Color Artist: Protobunker Letterers: Christa Miesner and Valeria Lopez Review by Steve J. Ray Some of my favorite comics are those that honor and follow the style of movies and TV shows. Comics like The Batman Adventures , for example. So, you can only Imagine my delight when a knock on my door resulted in my being handed the latest package from Penguin Random House. The box contained a copy of Marvel Action: Avengers : “Off The Clock”. This gorgeous little trade paperback collects issues #1-#3 of Marvel Action: Avengers , and is one of the most fun comics, both in terms of story and art, that I’ve read featuring these particular characters, in a long, long time. Synchronicity Strikes Again Recently I helped promote a couple of fan films which gave us a day, and a night, in the life of a superhero trying to get some time off. By some amazing quirk of fate, this book shows six Avengers (at first… ) trying to cope with some H.R.
Article by Paul 'Professor Elemental' Alborough When DC comics laid off so many of their staff the other day, I was devastated*. Another little piece of joy taken away, more fantastic creative people losing their jobs, another big conglomerate stripping creativity for parts then crushing the scrap, and a much reduced chance that my proposed ‘Ambush Bug VS Plastic Man’ crossover mini-series script would ever be approved. It goes without saying, but 2020 is as bad as the Marvel Swimsuit comics from the early 1990s. That’s bad. Social media being what it is, (that is to say a huge purple monster, hell bent on sucking the joy out of life, spreading division and destroying Metropolis,) has given DC comics a bit of a kicking over the last decade or so. Never quite seen to be as hip and cool as Marvel, DC rebooted with their "Rebirth" in 2016, which saw the original comic book line return to its roots. Many said this was just a cynical ploy to shore up its fanbase, and cla
