Rub the sleep outta yer eyebulbs, ya lazy berks!

It’s the start of a whole new arc of my book, and it’s off to a bang!

After dealing with multiversal shenanigans for so long, a girl has got to get back to her roots (by which I mean taking her nontalking hyenas on walkies, bagging up their poops, and then having a superbo birthday party with her girlfriend and best pals).

It’s the start of a whole new arc!

Plus-ola: You like cartoons? I’ll give ya some dang goshed toonz! My disbarred personal trainers Brandt & Stein present the Troo Harleywood Story™ of th’ time I got embroiled in a battle of wills and wits with Gotham’s foremost high-flyin’ kite aficionado Kite-Man!

    Harley Quinn #38 is an excellent example of a character showing true growth after trauma. I, for one, will be here for it.

    Until then readers, one fun fact. Did you know the E. In Wile E. Coyote stands for Ethelbert? It is the small things sometimes. Until next time!

    It’s a fun back-to-basics issue, but also ends with the arrival of another big player in the Gotham crime scene.

    After many uneven issues, Harley Quinn #38 feels like Harley Quinn again as the series gets back to basics with Harley getting back into herself and what makes her tick. It’s a great example of how the character has grown and changed while still exploring the idea that she fits into a space that is neither villain nor hero as it sees her examining what she really wants on, of all things, her birthday. This leads her to start exploring her real passion for analysis and leads to not only a pretty fun caper but also the arrival of a major Gotham villain by the end of the issue. It’s solid all around, including art making this one a real winner.

    After seeing Harley’s blissful home life, a tonal shift back into familiar habits of characterization feels like having a rug pulled out from under me. And not in an exciting way.
