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.
