Harley Quinn’s bills are piling up. With everything she’s done recently and all the destruction she’s caused, Harley is going to have to make some serious money to pay people back. Her solution; a Jack-Ass style reality show on the Internet featuring herself doing dangerous and possibly illegal stunts for the adoring eyes of the Internet faithful. Unfortunately, she’s not the only one with that idea.
The daughter of Major Disaster is tired of not measuring up to her supervillain father and she is determined to do something about that. She creates her own Disaster Dial but when she goes to test it, she finds out that it really just induces minor annoyances and embarrassment. It might not bring her internet fame and fortune, but she could use it to cause some chaos in the life of Harley.
This story looks like it might be another fun interlude in the life of Harley Quinn. The last two arcs have followed the same theme of being relatively low stakes fun that teaches Harley something about herself as well as give her a sense of family with the people she chooses to spend time with. Humphries does a great job of making those stories both interesting to read, but fun and light enough to keep readers returning.
Werneck does some great art in this issue. There are some really well done panels in this book that showcase great detail and character. I really enjoyed the contrast in panel layout between Harley and Penny. Interested to see where this story goes next.
