Review – Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red


Black, white, and now READ for the first time in print!

One of the crown jewels of the DC library is the inimitable, Harvey Award-nominated Batman Black & White–innovative short tales of the Caped Crusader, told purely in primal black and white. Unfortunately, now Harley Quinn wants in on the action…and she’s got her red pen, and some notes.

In Harley Quinn Black + White + Red, 19 tales of Gotham City’s craziest clown princess are presented in nothing but black, white, and bold splashes of red. See how Harley’s story unfolds in worlds beyond the DC Universe, in the alternate timelines of Batman: White Knight, Harleen, and the Harley Quinn animated series! Witness her darkest hours and her happiest moments! Wait, did she just…win an underground rap battle?!

An incredible array of award-winning talent from across the comics industry (like Stjepan Sejić, Sean Murphy & Katana Collins, Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti, and many more) have put their reputations in jeopardy to bring you these stories–so show a little gratitude, will ya? (And hey, not for nothin’, but they got nominated for a Harvey Award too. Anything you can do, Harley can do better, Bat-brain!

This volume collects Harley Quinn Black + White + Red #1-17, alongside two all-new, never-before-seen stories–from Veep writer David Mandel and superstar artist Adam Hughes, and from Harley’s co-creator, Paul Dini, with Batman: The Animated Series legend Kevin Altieri!”

From serious, heartbreaking stories (like Harleen: Red by Stjepan Sejic, and Black, White Knight, and Red from Katana Collins, Sean Murphy, and Matteo Scalera), to more fun and silly stories (like Red Ink by Patrick Schumacker and Eleonora Carlini, and Fashion Victim by Mirka Andolfo), Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red has something to offer for every Harley fan. Whether you love classic, the new Harley Quinn animated series, Suicide Squad, or anything in between – this collection is guaranteed to have a story you’ll love.

I’m obviously very partial to Batman: White Knight Presents Harley Quinn – and luckily for me, there’s a tie-in story that gives me a little bit more of that story! The same goes for Harleen. Having a little extra bit of story to that book brought me so much joy.

I can’t think of a single story I didn’t enjoy. The fun ones were a blast. There were a few here and there that took Harley very seriously and showed off who she could be as a villain. One broke my heart with a series of Joker boobytraps. All around, it’s a perfect addition to any fans shelf!
