The plot/storyline was better than the book

Harley Quinn inherits an apartment building in New York City and starts a new life for herself in this first volume of a solo series for the character. Where this precisely fits in with Suicide Squad is another matter, given that the other series depicts her as being in a jail cell when not out on a mission. Here we have her finding new friends, getting a new line of work (or two), and getting into all sorts of trouble along the way. The tone is raunchy at times, but the creative team get the character's zany nature right as they go along.

First off, I am INCREDIBLY protective of Miss Quinzel as a character. When I saw the sketches of The New 52 design, I was less than enthralled with the route that was taken. Suddenly, my quirky little psychiatrist transformed into some sexpot derby girl. Baring that in mind, I did not have high hopes for this first volume. I will be the first to admit I was wrong. not only did we get new insight to our beloved little psycho, but we get to see her without her paramour, Mister J. One of the best bits in this volume, is that we get to see the dynamic between Harley and Poison Ivy. (This is an added touch of "are they together together?" I vote yes.) This volume really focuses on the best part of Harley's twisted personality- she's just downright fun. I actually found myself laughing out loud numerous times.

I should also add that the only "true" Harley for me is the Bruce Timm design- he actually illustrated a page in the volume in a segment devoted to different artists' depictions of our crazed cutie. So, give it a shot. If you like it, there's more! If you don't, eh, Preludes and Knock-knock Jokes it is!

Took me a bit of time to get through. Just couldn't get into the story as there wasn't really one. The main storyline of the volume was only 4 issues long. To its credit though, the reveal wasn't obvious until the 5th issue. It was a mediocre run with a few good nuggets and references in there. I wouldn't recommend it, but I would't go out of my way to tell anyone to not read it either.

I'm an avid fan of Harley Quinn and the comic shows her crazy attitude to the letter. If you follow this character in the DC comics or DCU in general, then it is worth a good read for the jokes and the offbeat mess she gets into.

I thought it was corny, didn't smile or laugh once. The art work was..ok i guess? Standard mainstream american comic faire, you know like chrome and boobs and hair and all that. But the story, just wow, who thought this was funny? Or interesting? I predicted the twist ending right away and there were so many unnecessary sex puns it looked like a kid who just watched American Pie for the first time in his life wrote this.
