Harley Quinn #6 - Better Nuthead Than Red Review

5

How crazy does this issue get? How about insane?

The Good

Whenever a new issue of HARLEY QUINN is released, I know I'm going to have a fun time. Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti and amping up the wackiness in the life of Harley. Mixed up with a former secret government agent, determined to tie up loose ends. And by "tie up," we're talking about killing them off. Harley partnering with anyone is pretty crazy. These two together are something you need to see. Their approach to each target and methods will bring a smile to your face as you start shaking your head of how absurd things can get.

And that's a good thing. HARLEY QUINN has become my feel-good comic. Each time I read an issue, I'm left with a big old smile on my face. I'll admit, I was unsure of Harley teaming with Syborg but this has been quite the adventure. We're seeing Harley in a new light. It may not be exactly how she's behaved at times in the past but it feels completely right with where this series is going.

Chad Hardin and Alex Sinclair are another amazing duo. They capture the essence of Harley from the script and bring it all to life. The visual gags and scenarios might be hard to pull off by others but these two make it all look so good.

The Bad

I can't complain. Sure, I'd like to see more on whoever put the hit out on Harley. That's coming up. I just enjoy reading this series month after month.

The Verdict

It's another fun and exciting issue by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, Chad Hardin, and Alex Sinclair. Just when you think Harley's adventures couldn't get any crazier, she ends up in a helicopter, crash landing, on the way to the zoo. This comic allows readers to escape the other events in the New 52. You never know what you're going to get except you can bet it's going to be a blast to read.

I weep for the real Harley Quinn, crying the the corner far away from this abomination.

Well except for her clothes, this title actually makes Harley Quinn the way she used to be, "fun"

I wasn't impressed with the New52's take on Harley Quinn and was significantly less impressed after she senselessly murdered hundreds of children for little to no reason. I seems that it was purely for the sake of attempting to make her edgy, followed swiftly by pretending that nothing happened. Like, how do you go forwards with a character and pretend that something of that scale didn't happen; then proceed to have no one in the entire DCU react badly to it.

Oh and completely killing the character doesn't help either.

Putting her appearance aside, he's an improvement over Suicide Squad and Villains' Month Harley. But this still is far from the Harley I want to see.

We will never get over it. Ever. I will curse N52 Harley with my last breath.

I see it the other way around, I also see Shaco as LoL's Joker & Zyra as their Poison Ivy :3

It's very sad how Harley Quinn has her own book.
