Power Girl and Harley Quinn are off on a Space adventure involving many rings, cosmic organs, wife-eating giant pugs, purple cats, talking pizza, accountants and Harley’s need to point out PG’s rather bountiful assets many, many times.
The writing is once more absolutely fantastic. Witty, full of one liners, and sass, Amanda and Jimmy once more have found a way of taking what could have been a very dry space story and making it a barrel of laughs. Unlike other adventures in space in the DC comics of late, this had a start, a middle and a rough end with a “”to be continued” that usually means we will actually get the “to be continued” next month. These writers are reliable, sure bet. The artwork was just as fantastic; a lot of PG’s panels had a lot of strength while not making her looks overly masculine or butch. The eyes are beautifully done, face expressions executed well and the colourations especially in the panel with the ship in space was just beautiful.
The only thing I can think is that for some readers, this may be seen as an over the top Harley Hallucination type issue.
Harley is the one issue I am always so excited to have come out each month and the light hearted humour and colour really does brighten up a long work day. It’s a breath of fresh air and joy among a lot of heavy storylines among the other comics I read and it’s a great series where even if you know nothing about Harley or the DC universe you can pick this up and just enjoy it.
This is one I am definitely putting in as a stocking stuffer for even my non-comic book friends to pull them in.
This is a team that is magic and I can’t wait for next month!
