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!”
