Book Summary: “Red Meat” part two! Harley’s managed to carve out a kind of peace with New York’s corrupt mayor…but once she gets wind of his plans for the city’s homeless population, the deal is most definitely off!
Book Review: Real Rating: 3.5

Squee! I knew I noticed that art of Joseph Linsner! I have always loved the way he drew women especially from his Dawn series. I had not seen anything from him until now and it was a nice treat to be able to take note that I knew that art from somewhere! xD

Okay, okay with that out of the way...

I was confused with this whole storyline. First we were introduced to a young wrestling woman who seems to be gunning for Harley. The reasoning, I suppose, will remain a mystery for now. Then that entire squad of bad guys being up to something. Then you have the alien guy, who I have yet to figure out if he is going to be bad or good because it seems to change from moment to moment like some sort of mood swing. >>

And did I mention Power Girl shows up?

This has a lot going on but where a new storyline is starting, the other two are nowhere near the end of the line. So you have multiple somethings going on but no ending in sight and I can see why a lot of people would become frustrated with this. I know several times I became confused by the going ons.

This book, once held my interest, but now I feel that my attention toward is waning at best. I want to keep up with it but there are so much I can enjoy about it and then there are things I find that bore me to tears. I am going to stay as much as I can and hope that it goes in another direction that will once more renew my interest.

Book Summary: “RED MEAT”! Red Tool lives up to his name and Poison Ivy drops by as Harley investigates what is happening to New York’s disappearing homeless population!
Book Review: Real Rating: 2.5

Normally I have enjoyed the Harley series but this one I just could not like whatsoever. Maybe it was the many storylines going. We had an organization at the beginning plotting something against the homeless. Then we have ant-like alien creatures bringing up some sort of God-like creatures cocoon only to have it open and turn on them, killing them all. And last but not least we have a new hero show up and take Harley on a ride to find that creature, only find it has found them.

Yet according to the blurb to this we were suppose to see Ivy but I did not see her anywhere in sight plus we were suppose to see a bit of Red Tool but correct me if I wrong but did I miss him? Did I miss Ivy?

I am still going to continue this series because I like Harley. I like how she has grown and changed since being the beginning of this series. Plus I want to see this new heroine and what she has to offer. Maybe she might stick around a bit. :D
