Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, a.k.a. Harlivy, a.k.a. the DCU’s most favoritest couple.
They’re inseparable, right? Right? Well, maybe not. While Ivy focuses on prepping for her new job with the Legion of Doom and Harley dives mallet-first into her role as a member of the Bat-Family, the DCU’s most favoritest couple find themselves stretched thin. But are they at their breaking point?
Dark Knight NewsThere are a lot of things established in Harley Quinn: The Animated Series – Legion of Bats #3 that give readers hints of what’s to come. The matter of whether Harley and Ivy can make it when they’re on opposite ends of the spectrum is intriguing, and Bella brings in a different level of personal matters to attend to. While Ivy has her own secrets, Harley’s no innocent. I’m looking forward to seeing how this all plays out.
The Fandom PostThis series continues to be a pretty dense one as there are a lot of things going on in each issue, a lot of dialogue, and a lot of panels. It works well because there is so much happening and that it feels like the show without it trying to be active in the same way. Franklin definitely gets that it's two different mediums and rules and is using the comic side to its advantage to tell its own story but also complement the show. It again looks great with Mikel stepping in for the artwork here and delivers something delightful within the larger Harley framework.
The Comicbook DispatchHarley Quinn The Animated Series: Legion of Bats #3 is another fun issue of the series, with some great plotlines for Poison Ivy and Harley, and some great action. Harley’s new Bat-themed identity is hilarious and there’s a great setup for next issue.
Geek DadOne of the best parts about this series is the way Tee Franklin is pulling in some real deep cuts from DC history. (...) The main strength of the animated series is Harley and Ivy’s offbeat connection, so keeping them mostly apart here is setting this story back.
Batman-NewsHarley Quinn: The Animated Series: Legion of Bats! #3 is unfortunately a step down from previous issues in the series, both in writing and art. The plot feels directionless and the art style has lost the stylistic liveliness that used to tie the comic to its TV counterpart. There are entertaining segments of the story, but it's all so disconnected that it's difficult to form a coherent vision of the whole. It's not terrible, but it's not especially good either; it just feels like it's there.
