She is either amazingly well written and created in such an interesting way that you cannot put it down or she is unbearable and just too much. Fortunately, Harley’s Little Black Book fell into the former.I cannot remember the last time that I had this much fun reading a comic book, I was constantly laughing at what Harley had gotten herself into and how she went about getting out of the situations. Whilst some of the supporting cast were not as well developed as Harley, they did not detract from the events that occurred.Each issue is a ‘stand-alone’ story focusing on a different person who Harley interacts with; although overall they do flow from one story to another. The first story is Harley Quinn tries to become Wonder Woman’s sidekick, you can only imagine what goes through her brain in how she goes about this. Next up was Harley Quinn gets a lantern ring and ends up facing Hal Jordan. Third was Zatanna and Harley Quinn in what I can only describe as a crazy ghost-filled adventure. Fourth was Harley travels back in time to WW2 and joins the Bombshells in an assassination plot. Fifth is Harley Quinn vs Superman. Last, but not least, was Harley Quinn and Lobo get stranded on an planet.I won’t go too much into each storyline as with them only being a single issue long, I will probably end up explain gin everything. What I will say though is that each story, whilst connected, are very different and you should not go into this expecting an overarching plot like you would expect. Each story wraps up very well and not many loose ends are left. Treat each story as their own and you will enjoy this more.The art style for the first 5 issues were very similar and I cannot really fault it. The last issue with Lobo has a very different art style, that I initially found quite jarring after the pervious 5 issues being completely different. Whilst this change in art style initially shocked me, I actually ended up enjoying this one the most (and yes, maybe Lobo has something to do with this…).If you enjoy the character Harley Quinn, then these one-shots should give you a good taste of her wild personality.

    Harley Quinn is obviously hot lately. Even though the Suicide Squad movie wasn't as amazing as everyone may have hoped for there is no doubt that Margot Robbie brought Harley to life in a perfect fashion. DC did a smart thing following that movie last year releasing the first of this series of 6 one-shot comics. They are cute single stories where Harley meets up with some DC well known and lesser known characters. Many comic book gals (including myself) are very niche.

Even though the Suicide Squad movie wasn't as amazing as everyone may have hoped for there is no doubt that Margot Robbie brought Harley to life in a perfect fashion. DC did a smart thing following that movie last year releasing the first of this series of 6 one-shot comics. They are cute single stories where Harley meets up with some DC well known and lesser known characters. Many comic book gals (including myself) are very niche. I collect Harley comics, Grimm Fairly Tales by specific artists and some other miscellaneous on the side like Serenity; but the only major title I devotedly collect is Harley. So bringing Harley into the realm of some other heroes is a good way to give exposure to these other DC characters. Of the 6 there is no doubt I learned the most about Green Lantern backstory and the rings. I didn't know much at all and after reading this story went and looked up a bunch of info on the rings. Some good marketing there DC. Overall all of these are fun, silly stories; just like Harley always is. They are told using her post-Joker character (ie: new 52 Harley) and they tie in to her main arc in small ways if you pay attention. No Suicide Squad persona here; but if you want to know more about some other DC characters while enjoying Harley's antics this is a great compilation. It's even easier to fit into a busy life as each of the six parts is its own story perfect for a 15-30 minute sitting. To read this and more of my reviews visit my blog at Epic Reading Please note: I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. This is an honest and unbiased review.

Next Harley crosses Hal Jordan's path when she buys a combined red and black ring off ebay, like I said has to be out of current continuity. Then Zatanna shows up and they help some ghosts who are bound to Coney Island. These three stories are all pretty great and feature the regular creative teams found in Harley's regular book. Here's where things get wonky, Harley steals Superman's time travel balls (obviously made up for the book just so she can keep cracking jokes about Superman's balls) and travels to DC's Bombshells universe. Then they somehow talked Neal Adams to come and draw a spoof of his Superman vs. Muhammad Ali one shot. Finally, Simon Bisley draws a Lobo and Harley teamup.The Good: The first three issues work really well and felt like they could have been a part of the regular Harley book.The Bad: If they are going to put Harley in the DCU, I wish they'd ground her continuity in with the reat of the DCU. There are some very obvious gaffes that just annoyed the crap out of me.The Ugly: Lobo has got to be the worst character at DC. This issue felt like those 90's miniseries and had me wanting to poke my eyes out to avoid finishing the issue. I can't stand Simon Bisley's art either. I think he goes out of the way at times to make pages look awkward.Received an advance copy from DC and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

It is 258 pages if Harley being Harley, trying hard to be good but often her actions get misinterpreted.Art: The art is all on par with what I expect from Amanda Conner, John Timms, and Dave Johnson. Mauricet works the Green Lantern story with John Timms for some pretty impressive Lantern action. Joseph Michael Linser does the art for Dispirited Spirits, a beautiful Zatanna and the eerie supernatural. Billy Tucci shares the Bombshells with Joseph Michael Linser and Flaviano with plenty of that outstanding Bombshell style and double the Harley. No Pain No Sane features the art of Neal Adams it’s a riot of activity and color (Paul Mounts) the amount of detail is impressive. Bare-assed and Belligerent is probably the only one I didn’t like both art and story, I’m just not a fan of Simon Bisley’s art.Characters:Harley and her Gang, Wonder Woman, Zatanna, The London Legion: Double Decker, Tiffany Terror, Pub Crawler, Big Bad Ben; Green Lantern, A trio of unlucky ghosts and the demon that binds them to Earth, The Bombshells: Batwoman, Amanda Waller, Zatanna, Big Barta, Catwoman, Harley Quinn; Superman, Lois, Jimmy, and an unsuspecting Aliens looking for a fight, and LoboReview: Overall it was fun as are most of Harley’s adventures, silly and very, very not politically correct. Lobo’s story was the only one I really didn’t like, but I really don’t care for Lobo anyways.

    Did not finish.Couldn't even last ten minutes reading this. Thought it was a standalone title considering how it's marketed. Felt lost, bored, and confused pretty quickly. Where the fuck does a semi-dead beaver come from? Your British villain's name is Barmy Bugger? You do know what Bugger means in the UK right? Wait, you named the one person of colour "Harlem Harley"? Holy crap, what a mess and damn them for writing page after page of bullshit cockney.

    3.5.It was fun until that disgusting Bisley issue.World: The art overall is fun and over the top. It's just like the Harley main series, it's cartoony it's ridiculous and absurd, meaning it's perfect for what it's suppose to do. However, I will say that the Lobo issue is possibly one of the ugliest books I've seen in a while. I know Bisley did some Lobo in the past (not a big fan of Lobo either) but man it looked like a high school student's notebook sketches they did during class, it was just F 3.5.It was fun until that disgusting Bisley issue.World: The art overall is fun and over the top.

The pieces of the DCU that we visit with Harley was fun, there are better pieces than some but overall the world building is good.Story: The series is fun, it's stupid and over the top and absurd but it's fun. This is pretty much similar to Squirrel Girl defeats the Marvel Universe and Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, it's insane but you just enjoy it for what it is. It's Harley messing with people and for the most part it's good. There are some great issues like Wonder Woman, Bombshells, some okay with GL and Supes...then there are the terrible...Lobo. I liked the Powergirl series more but this is still fun. Don't take it serious.Characters: Harley is Harley, and the rest of the cast are caricatures of themselves in the DCU. It's fun. Supes was fun, so was Zatanna and Wonder Woman. Fun stuff. Not the most deep but that was not the point.A fun little series if you don't take it serious at all. Last episode was disgustingly bad in terms of art...Onward to the next book!

    I liked this! But first a little commentary.

"Harley's Little Black Book" brings back the insane violent Harley while keeping the lovable part. Six one-off chapters have Harley teaming-up with a popular superhero or even several. The "black book" in the title is figuratively referring to the fact that she knows a lot of superheroes. The first four issues in this collection of six were excellent. Harley was not just silly but her real crazy insane self. There was lots of violence (ie flying body parts) and tons of sexual innuendo while being endearing at the same time. Harley teams-up (not always by agreement ) with several superheroes including Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Zatanna. Running through the first three is a very light story arc of her meeting and having come to hers, the London Society of Superheroes, a rag-tag of British stereotypes. The last three stories surround her stealing Superman's "balls" and using one that transports her places. The next story up transports her to WWII where she teams up with the Bombshells. The final two stories were ridiculous and were really hard for me to finish. First Superman and her stop a world invasion and the story is so out-there it felt like a send-up of a Mad Magazine send-up of superheroes. And finally, the last story with Lobo was bad, verrrry bad. But Harley was the violent Harley with attitude that I liked so the book is getting 4 stars from me.

    'Harley's Little Black Book' by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti was going to be a bit of a challenge for me since I'm not the biggest Harley Quinn fan around. Since it was a team up book, I thought I'd give it a shot.This reprint #1-6 in the series and is a pretty big 256 pages. Harley meets and attempts to "help" Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Zatanna, the DC Bombshells, Superman and Lobo. There is a bit of time and space travel tomfoolery to get her mixed up with some of these characters.

She makes and meets friends along the way and generally makes a lot of inuendo jokes. This book is really not for kids.It was all pretty silly, as I expected, and that's fine, but at so many pages, I just got fatigued. It was all so much. I liked the Superman story the best. Maybe because Neal Adams did the art. The rest of it might be better taken in smaller doses rather than reading it in one straight shot.I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.

    This collection of New 52 Harley specials really is a curates egg. Some work, and are funny, well mapped out, and flow wonderfully. Others are weak, and tedious. I wasn't a huge fan of 52 Harley, and this reminded me why. Thankfully her Rebirth run is awesome and heading in a far more positive direction.

Yes, I strongly feel that there are too many characters in here, too many very big characters. As single entities, each volume works, but to combine them all into one collection, I don't think this is an enjoyable experience. There's six separate stories here, with the recurring appearance of the London Legion of Superheroes. Honestly, I could've just read a few volumes featuring them and been very happy. Well, them and Wonder Woman, obvi. The first story features she of the golden lasso, and it's probably my favorite. It's actually very simple, Harley is a major WW fangirl, and she...you know. Does what any fan would do. Drugs Wonder Woman, takes her clothes, and fights bad guys. It's really quite cute, you should read it. The stories get progressively more complicated and difficult to follow from here. Next up we have Green Lantern, a superhero who I know literally nothing about. He's very L7, a little too DC comic white bread for me. But I did enjoy seeing what his super powers are. I think? How accurate are these, anyway? I have no idea who Zatanna Zatarra is, though I have a vague idea based on googling. I literally have no clue who the last character is, I didn't see anything really googleable there. I'm sure someone can let me know in the comments, I just kept thinking he looked like someone from WWE.Is Superman always so jolly and happy-go-lucky? Is that why the internet is full of drawings of him messing with Batman? I like this. I would read Superman if this was a promise of more things to come. All the artwork is different for each chapter, a recurring theme in HQ books. The best art, in my humble opinion, is the one used for the Bombshell chapter. I love all those ladies, and this is set in Nazi Germany, with entirely ridiculous time travel phlebotinum and bathroom jokes that never appeal to me, ever. We also got Nazi Joker, and HQ taking down Hitler as only she can. Like I said, these stories are great on their own! Just...not all together. Too much. Way too much.

She may not be one of the best role models but she’s a strong woman who stands up for herself and others albeit in a tendency that could be morally and legally questionable – but at least she does it!In this desperate to be politically correct yet still offending everyone wo I’m admittedly a Harley fan.

It’s my escape from the social justice warriors, feminist warriors, and every other warrior currently gathering in the US like a political tornado cause you just don’t see that same level of epic infighting about EVERYTHING anywhere else on the planet. Harley lets us just breathe for a bit.These stories are all great ones to have and read many times over. I wish they would make a series on Netflix or something based on these stories. You have to admire her spunk and devil may care attitude, or complete lack of respect depending on your POV, when it comes to how she interacts with the ‘good’ guys like Wonder Woman. You can’t take anything away from Wonder Woman, my daughters love her, but there also has to be a place in this world for Harley because not everyone can be a WW – we need the opposite too just to keep things interesting. Her messing around with the lantern rings had me shaking my head and laughing – cause you know, only Harley. Harley trying to be good in her own way but never quite pulling it off.Along with some well told stories thankfully the artwork measures up. You get an insurgence of color, detail, activity, and emotion swirling together to bring the battles to life as if these were playing out before you and Harley becomes even more outrageous and impressive than she already was designed to be.This series was just another win in my Why I love Harley column.

A great collection that we hope to see more of in the future as Harley makes her way across the DC Universe with as big a heart as her violent tendencies. Always fun when Harley's leading her own stories.

It was crazy even for her to travel overseas in a barrel.There she befriends the Legion of Superheroes.I gotta say time traveling  storylines never get old. Harley meets herself and the bombshells during the war. I felt really empowered seeing these women fight for their cause. Harley actually got to fight Superman and a scrubb alien for the fate of the world. It was like watching a pay per view match!Lastly was my favorite team-up with Lobo the bounty hunter. His no nonsense attitude and her nonsense one is so entertaining. You could cut their sexual tension with a knife.

The stories were just meh when they could have been great, and the art ranged from solid to just atrocious (as with the Lobo issue). I just really didn't care for this, and my disinterest/dislike just grew as it went on. I wouldn't recommend this, even for the most rabid fans of Conner's Harley Quinn.

There's nothing I didn't like about this (not even Prick The Barbarian or whatever his name is from the last comic.) I laughed, I winced, I laughed some more. This was everything I wanted it to be and a whole lot extra on top (Harley in a Ghostbusters costume, anybody..?)Don't miss this, seriously.

    Thank you to the publisher and net galley for giving me the chance to read and review Harley's Little Black Book.This is a fun small run of Harley Quinn stories where she gets the opportunity to fight alongside some of her favorite Heroes. From Wonder Woman to Lobo. I thought it was a lot of fun! The art was great too.It does read more like a collection of one shots, so keep that in mind before you pick it up. I wouldn't call it a must read, but it's a fun little book.Would recommend to Harley Q Thank you to the publisher and net galley for giving me the chance to read and review Harley's Little Black Book.This is a fun small run of Harley Quinn stories where she gets the opportunity to fight alongside some of her favorite Heroes.

    Harley's Little Black Book by Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti et. al. is a free NetGalley e-comicbook that I read in early July.This is what would happen if Harley Quinn went full Brooklyn and had very convenient run-ins (think uniform switcheroos and common enemies) to fight alongside DC superheroes. The palette is blazing with glittering color and (I'm very happy to say) real-life feminine figures with healthy plumpness and natural curves.

    This was a mixed bag. They were all amusing, but some were extremely outlandish (which I understand is sort of the point) and involved characters that I'm really just not terribly fond of. That being said, I loved Wonder Woman and Zatanna. And the Bombshells. I guess I'm just more of a fan of female super heroes. Not a surprise.

    what is most remarkable is the way it shifts tone each issue in terms of story and art to match the character. like the move from silver age superman aliens and supertech to late 90s in Lobo sex/fight romp.

    Boobs bursting out of the suits, perky lips and explosions! I really hate Harley's team, they are too dorky for me and unnecessary. Harley as always manages to get in trouble, to be scolded and somehow disappointed in her hero or taught a forgetful lesson.
