As Harley finds herself sailing through a plate glass window head first, she has time to think about the actions that led her to this moment and how she brought it on herself when she messed with continuity and trapped Captain Triumph in the present. Harley attempts to escape the rampaging Triumph while trying to reason with him, but he isn’t listening. Without the ghost of his twin brother guiding him, he is both lost and alone. A prospect that haunts him as he prepares to do something he can’t come back from.
After Harley finally gets through to him, the two go on a journey to find a way to reconnect Triumph to his brother and maybe get him home. Something that the Continuity Cop Jonni DC would like to happen because the responsibility of it is Harleys. As Harley takes Triumph to a location that connects him to his past, a new threat to Quinn emerges.
This issue was fun. Humphries does a great job of wrapping up the Triumph storyline as well as creating something new for Harley to confront. Humphries conveys a message in this story as well regarding the trappings of nostalgia vs the reality of the world and it’s very well done. The story does a great job of mixing both heart and humor and it blends them in a way that makes the reader feel for both characters.
The art by Sami Basri is fun. I loved many of the panels and the art does a great job of complementing the story. A very fun and funny issue.
