Book Summary: “ANGRY BIRD” finale! Betrayed by one of the last allies she thought she had left from Gotham City’s criminal underworld, Harley’s in a corner in her battle against the Penguin...and that’s the most dangerous place you could possibly put her! Someone’s gonna get killed here, and it ain’t Harley...
Book Review: Harley's back!

...and she hasn't come back alone.

At her side Killer Croc has joined her cause in getting rid of the Penguin and his group of henchmen from taking over Coney Island.

But first she needs to make things up to the Harleys. At first the Harleys don't seem thrilled with her return. After all she deserted them. Harley tells them that she understands their anger towards her but she left due to the overwhelming grief she felt for Mason. The Harleys are unable to stay angry at her for long and the group hugs.

Let's get ready to rumble!

The island becomes a battle royale with cameos from Catwoman, Power Girl, and Poison Ivy.

In the end, Penguin is defeated and Harley gains back control over Coney Island.


This series looks more cartoonish than that of the last. The art looked messy and the entire ending of the storyline looked like it had been rushed. I understand that you want to finish arcs and set up for the next issue but rushing the art makes it look like you gave the paper to several children and told them to have it.

I am really trying to hang onto this series but it is becoming harder with each issue. I don't know why Amanda and her team were pulled from the series but I sure do miss them tons.

Well here is to seeing how the next issue with Old Lady Harley is going to be.

Book Summary: “Man-Batter Up” part two! Harley was sure she knew who was targeting her friends—but man, was she wrong! Or should we say “Man-Bat, was she wrong!”? And if you thought Harley had anger issues before, wait until you see her juiced up with Man-Bat serum!
Book Review: This issue is the second of the Tieri's takeover on Harley and it picks up right where the last issue leaves off.

Harley has been changed into a bat and is currently wrecking havok upon Coney Island. Her team of Harleys are doing their best to try to figure out exactly what to do with this new Harley but Harley isn't having it and she goes after them as well.

As for Red Tool, he has the easier job as he has headed off to search for a cure and the find the mad-man who made this serum that has changed Harley.

Harley continues to wreck havok upon the Coney Island pier and the Harley Quinns are doing their best to try their best to get through to the human part of her, even going as far as to offer her food in hopes of stopping the carnage but another female human-bat appears and sets about to destroy the Harleys with the hope of dragging them back to the lair and changing them.

It is at this very moment Red Tool arrives with the antidote and uses it on Harley. With Harley back to her old self, her depressive guilt of Mason's death comes back as well. She finds herself center of attention of those who believe in her but Harley's guilt is still fresh and the wounds of it have yet to heal.

Oh? And what is this? Could it be he behind it all? The suspense!


My Thoughts

I still find the storyline of the human bat still rather silly and stupid but I suppose it is needed. Harley is still in a funk and hopefully this may just pull her out of it. At least that is what I am hoping. I know she believes herself to be the one to blame and I am hoping that she will realize his death wasn't her fault. It belongs squarely upon the shoulders of Madison and I would love to see a rematch between these two women especially once Harley has accepted Mason is gone.

So I am looking forward to this one ending and we return to Madison and the crooked Mayor. Those two still need to be dealt with.
