More mayhem and hijinks with Harley. She still has a bunch of assassins trying to kill her. It's a little inconvenient.

Terrible and overrated character. So many others deserved an ongoing more than her.

@redwingx: Overrated? You might not like the character but she isn't overrated, lol! Not sure why you even write a comment here if you already knew you wouldn't buy it or read it.

I... I love Harley Quinn..

I love this series. Its fun and has a little bit of the old Harley we know and love. Not everything has to be so serious at DC and this book gives the company some much needed variety in tone.

@redwingx: comics aren't made by who's most deserving it's what people will buy and like it or hate it people want a harly quin book. which i think that does make her deserving of her getting her own book.

I have to wonder if Harley actually "deserves" a series, or if its just because she is a Bat-character people get it. If she were the side-kick of the Prankster, & not the joker, whould she have made it to issue2?

& its all well & good if her book is a success. I just dont like them turning female villains ,or villains at all for that matter, like her, Catwoman, or Poison Ivy into heroes because DC needs high profile female characters for diversity. But it also just shows that DC allows its corporate owner suits to just exploit the bat & superman franchises at the expense of everything else. From comics, to the movies, to the cartoons to until 3 years ago TV. After all, the only reason they made a GreenArrow show is because he is kinda sorta just like batman. O & yeah, they have made a new bat-show.

@redwingx: truer words have not been said in forever. I eff'n hate this character, but she sells, what's DC going to do?

@cobramorph: You wanna Know why Bat-characters keep on getting books?

The simple answer is that Batman's rouges gallery and supporting cast are so iconic and so interesting they can support there own books. Because batman is boring without them there the ones with personality. They work together in a viscous cycle increase the popularity of both batman and his supporting characters. Case in point robin doubled the sales of detective comics.

Agreed. Somehow this book puts Avengers to shame when it comes to sales.

@fallschirmjager:

She is Harley, she always been the same Harley. What people want? Her to be punching bad for The Joker?

@cobramorph

Poison Ivy was neutral character and continues to be neutral character, her dealing with BOP was just for case, but she continue because she liked the team until she was kick out of team.

Harley's pretty hot in that outfit, hubba hubba

Was that a Tarantino reference within a Tarantino reference?

Posted by Saint_Wildcard

I hope it doesn't disappoint. The SDCC issue was too much for my taste but this looks good. Fingers crossed

@fallschirmjager: Because people need to learn to stop judging a book by its cover .
