We get into Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #4 as the issue sees the gang try to save their leader.

It’s weird. Very very weird. But it certainly comes across as a companion issue to Harley Quinn #1, as most of the main characters in this issue appear in that too. It’s great to see Harley outside of the Suicide Squad and away from the more obvious DC Characters in a solo adventure. But it still manages to stand on it’s own two feet without needing the support and structure that other well A-list characters need. Don’t get us wrong, there’s story structure in the issue – but it has the freedom of being absolutely insane.

We’re also loving the fact that DC are acknowledging that The Joker and Harley’s relationship was incredibly abusive and toxic. She’s seen throughout basically telling a Joker hologram where to shove it. And also slaps him. So there’s that. Harley’s aspect of the story is completely bonkers, including a robotic shark, Harley Sinn (no, we didn’t spell Quinn wrong) and a Mayan temple on a creepy island. It wouldn’t be a Harley based issue if it wasn’t completely insane now, would it?

The Gang of Harley’s get their own part of the story, as they’re also tracking down Harley Sinn, and although their detective work is a little messy – it makes for great reading. Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #4 is hugely enjoyable, and doesn’t stick to the constraints of the mainstream continuity. It’s an excellent companion to the other stories that Miss Quinzel features in, and still manages to be just as fun.

Fans of Harley Quinn will love this series.
