DC BloodlinesOverall I thought this was a great little story showing the complex nature of Harley Quinn ... both the good and the bad. I love how it clearly intimated the respect that the Batman has for her as a foe. I was very entertained.
Major SpoilersIts an out of continuity tale that works no matter when you learned to love Ms. Quinn, and it does what a one-shot should do, in making you wish it was an ongoing series even as you realize it probably wouldnt be this much fun every month. The Jokers Asylum II Harley Quinn is a good outing for Harl, and earns a well-deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars overall.
Weekly Comic Book ReviewThis Arkham Asylum II installment isn't as good as the outing with Mad Hatter, but it does tell a fairly light and entertaining tale. Non-fans won't be missing anything by skipping it, but if you enjoy Harley and/or Joker, it's worth a look.
The Weekly CrisisI'm way more in love with the idea of this issue than I am with the actual execution of it. James Patrick puts together a nearperfect story for Harley Quinn, but fails to find the character's unique voice to flesh that story out.
