If you like the wacky and the bizarre, the silly and the sexy, dark humor and light humor, I fully recommend the purchase of this book.
And if just the contents of the humor and story arent enough to convince you, maybe the art will. While it does have a main artist throughout the series, nearly every, if not every comic, has a guest artist in some sort of dream sequence or other such nonsensical event. It is an enviroment where the artists are all allowed to just go crazy with their art, drawing what they want how they want, with Harley quinn breaking the fourth wall about the art in an amusing way on multiple occasions. There is also a noticable lack of artist shortcuts, such as tracing, copy and pasted objects or limbs, and minimal repeated frames.
I give the art a 5/5
I give the comedy a 4.5/5
I give the story a 4/5
100% a definite buy for any collection, worth every penny.
Harley gets an apartment building and has zany adventures with her new friends. Harley seems to have her heart in the right place but she does go a bit too far sometimes.
There's several moments where I laughed out loud and the comedy is actually good....although a little adult for my liking but there's no toilet humor for the most part.
I'm trying to get into comics again and this is an interesting place to Starr reading comics
Great deal for a nine issue book. Chad Hardin's art is excellent. For fans of comics with ant-hero(ines) with a likes of the absurd and comical, this can be a fun read.
