Harley Quinn may be crazy, but she’s not used to being this crazy busy. Working full time as a psychiatrist, a landlord, a derby girl and trying to date is running her ragged. Oh, and there’s also the whole thing where she really wants to win a date with Bruce Wayne and make time for Poison Ivy too. When it gets to be too much, Harley begins to outsource and bring in some of the toughest girls in Brooklyn to audition for a role as backup for our mad clown diva, women get a chance to kick the wicked butts of those around with bad intentions.
The Harley Quinn standalones make me love comics again. Whether it’s a random dream sequence with Bruce Wayne, a talking taxidermy beaver, or the sheer awesomeness of the Ivy/Harley relationship, it’s difficult not to love the quirky story lines and bright colorful art. For the first time in a while, I can get my weird comic and at the same time as satisfying my friend’s request to read something “funny and colorful.” The process of gathering the girls to work for Harley was hilarious, as was the search for a place for them to stay. Harley’s gorgeous outfits, especially the one for the Bruce Wayne benefit, are what I really wish people would cosplay.
Harley Quinn Volume #3 is funny, twisted and just the right amount of weird. It is now available from DC comics.
