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!”Continue reading Review – Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red

Full steam ahead as we’re put on edge this week, giving us the conclusion to the math madness. Harley manages to save Kevin from Keepsakes catastrophic plan; Kevin was tied to train tracks, leaving Harley in a predicament, having to choose Kevin or Gotham City, she succeeds in saving both by defusing the bomb.
The run is doing a great job introducing new friendships and bonds between Harley and others. Some being familiar faces we all know and love, and plenty of new characters on the scene also. Personally, I adore the bond between Kevin and Harley; it’s the kind of energy I look for in a true friend.
Stephanie Phillips is fantastic; she understands a perfect balance in Harley’s tempo. Her thoughts and actions are exactly what you would expect from a character of her mentality. There is so much progress happening and much more room for growth and exploration of the character. Riley Rossmo’s art really coincides with the story and tone. He uses Harley’s bows to emote her so often, it’s my favourite aspect of any art he does of her. Such a unique and distinguishable style I adore anything he’s a part of. It’s playful and perfect for our favourite jester!
When you thought we were just getting settled; a new character is thrown into the mix. “The Verdict”. Now I don’t know about you but I thought Keepsake was a super cool villain and as bad as they come, but this new girl seems to be more trouble than most and I simply cannot wait to watch the chaos unfold!!
