Book Summary: “EAT TO THIS BEAT” part two! Harley’s carving her way through the rock underground of New York City, looking for the brutal criminals who hurt someone she cared about…unfortunately for Harley, one of the crooks in question has fallen in mad love with her.
Book Review: In this comic, we pick up where we have left off. Harley's working the rock club scene trying to find the people who killed someone dear to her. There she makes contact with two people who could possibly be the killers. Unfortunately for Harley one of them is wearing a soap heart once given to her by the Joker when she was working at Arkham. Of course this angers Harley a bit and she wants it back but she knows she cannot blow her cover at the moment. For now, she will have no choice but to let it slide.

This one was a bit amusing. Harley trying to sing was hilarious and her song was even worse. Still I like her spunk and her determination to get to the bottom of things and find out who killed her mailman.

The one thing I don't care for is the art. I don't know why but I am not a fan of it.

Still I enjoyed this issue immensely and I look forward to seeing more of Harley to come.

Book Summary: “EAT TO THIS BEAT” part one! There’s been a string of brutal robberies and slayings up and down the East Coast, and the assailants are…knights on horseback?! Harley’s got a lead on the men behind the iron masks, but to find them she’s going to have to go undercover in the strangest place of all…New York’s punk scene!
Book Review: I'm sure you are asking yourself: Is still going backwards with this comic?

In the famous words of Phineas and Ferb: Yes, yes I am.

Our issue opens with Knights on horses chasing after a mail truck. These are the same guys that are responsible for the brutal robberies and slayings across the eastern coast. This time they have targeted a mail truck out on delivery. The crooks stop the truck right near Harley's apartment and the sound wakes her up. As she heads down to find out what the sound is, she is stunned to find that it is her mailman that has been hurt and those Knight thieves are raiding his truck.

Of course Harley is now out for revenge and when she is given a lead, Harley heads into the lion's den to find the culprits responsible for the death of her mailman.

I really liked this issue. Harley has changed from the puppet of the Joker into someone trying to set on the right path. As always those paths are not always going to be straight and narrow. There are going to be bumps and temptations of off-beaten paths that could tempt Harley to come. Still I am looking forward to seeing how this plays out and the storylines flesh out even more.

Book Summary: “108 MILLION WAYS TO DIE!” Even though she hates to leave Coney Island as it rebuilds after the zombie apocalypse, Harley must set out on a journey that will take her around the world-and into the clutches of a bizarre robotic enemy! Too bad her Mecha-Harley suit didn’t fit in the overhead bin…
Book Review: We open with the end of the whole Zombie thing on Coney Island. Harley is having her moment of reflection on both Red Tool and Ivy. She has asked the latter to move in with her but there are always excuses from Ivy.

Here she meets the Nate's Hot Dog man and makes a deal with him. She tells him she will help him resurrect his business by showing that hot dogs are not dangerous by going around eating them in front of people. Of course he agrees and she does her job even going as far to hand out hot dogs to locals.

Later we catch up with Harley on a plane with Bolly on the hunt to find out who is behind those IRS scam calls.

I loved this one. I even found myself giggling when she was spanking that little boy who was controlling the robot. That was just something I actually see Harley doing.

This one was good and sometimes I wish I was not going backwards on these comics but I cannot help it whatsoever.

Book Summary: “DIE LAUGHING” part 3!

In this concluding chapter, Coney Island threatens to collapse completely under a tidal wave of zombies! Harley’s got a lead on a cure-but what’s it going to take to administer it to a thousand flesh-hungry fiends? Here’s hoping Poison Ivy has an idea…
Book Review: Harley and Ivy.

These two are becoming one of my favorite DC couples. I absolutely love and adore them to pieces. <3

This issue opens with Red Tool in the hospital after having his arm severed from his body. How it happened? I don't have a clue but I'm guessing from a previous issue that Harley had something to do with it. Intentionally done? I am not quite sure as I am going backwards with the issues.

We do find Harley and Ivy holed up some place. Unfortunately for Harley, the only food in the whole building is pet food and Harley is not having it. She likes to pig out on food and having none is not going quite well with her. So she and the others head off in search of food and a way out.

Again I loved Harley and Ivy in this one. They made this issue. I loved the humor and banter between the two of them. You can feel that there is something very special between those two and I hope to see even more of the pair together. I would really like to see Harley completely rid herself of Joker's influence.

Book Summary: “Die Laughing” part two! As the plague of zombies on Coney Island continues to spread, Harley must rescue one of her own from the undead hordes…and try to uncover the cause of this corpse-y catastrophe!
Book Review: The zombie apocalypse is in full swing.

And the cause of this zombie apocalypse? A runaway adolscent alien who was unfortunately introduced into the food chain via hot dogs on Coney Island.

Now Harley and her gang of misfits are trying to fight to keep themselves alive and also find a way out of there.

But when they find themselves cornered, someone comes to their rescue - Ivy!

It was great seeing Ivy pop up in this issue and that it was she who saved the ragtag band of misfits belonging to Harley.

This issue was fun and drama-filled. Harley seemed to be enjoying herself a bit there as she took down zombie after zombie. I mean who stops for a moment and eats a soft pretzel - only Harley could.

Seriously I am liking this series and I am not a fan of Harley!
