Readers and head bangers alike will enjoy what happens when Harley finds herself on stage at a rock show. While investigating the not so shining white knights that have been stealing and attacking their way through town, Harley finds herself needing to dust of her vocal chords and give us a chorus or two.
Harley takes to the stage like you would expect, she loves it, there’s blood, gore, and other bodily fluids. At the end of her set the audience is cheering, even if they don’t know why and every onlooker that isn’t caught up in the insanity has a slack jaw.
While she hoots and hollers around with the mic in this issue, we also get to learn more about some of the other characters in her tight-knit group. Red Tool shows off some new skills, while learning more about his new arm. We also get to learn about Eggsy and his rather interesting and amazing past.
This issue is packed full of insanity and it is clear that the writing team has found their groove now and is ready to create a consistently “spectacular spectacle,” to quote Harley. They certainly have adopted a flair for theatricality and I look forward to what is to come in the future.
I don’t have anything negative to say about this issue. Harley is rockin’ it hard! This series has been a delight to read and this issue is no exception. We can expect many odd locales and weirder events to show up in this series and it will be a joy to read.
This issue is great. As a “head banger” myself, this issue does a good job at capturing the feeling of a rock joint while elevating it to the insanity of Harley Quinn. I just hope that Harley fans are ready to see her take the stage and beyond.
