  1. I don’t know if this is one I’d enjoy (though I strongly suspect I would), but I absolutely LOVE the cover art. I’m tempted to go looking for this one. Where it’s an origin story, do you think I’d be fine with it given my lack of knowledge of much of the DC universe? I know high level things, like Batman and the Joker, but I know nothing about Harley Quinn except what I’ve read here. Great review, by the way!

    1. I can only highly recommend it, Todd. There’s so much to appreciate from this. The edition alone is worthy of any bookshelves, if you ask me! And absolutely. You don’t need to know anything about the DC universe to enjoy this. To know, will mostly help you appreciate his take on those characters/elements, but otherwise, he makes everything easy to understand even for newcomers. Thanks for reading, Todd. I appreciate it a lot!

    1. Right? I love what they did with the dust jacket and the cover art. Genius! The original origin story of Harley Quinn is in the animated Batman series and was then presented as a comic by Paul Dini but it never went into as much detail, in terms of character, world or story, like Stjepan Sejic does. His art style also makes this much more “realistic” than the more bubbly and caricatured portrayal of the character in the past.

  3. High praise indeed my friend! I like Sejic’s art (the stuff he did on Aquaman was great) and wondered how he would fair as a writer as it isn’t always the case that a strong artist can also script a good narrative so it’s heartening to hear this succeeds on both fronts – another one for the list then!

    1. Oh man, Chris. Of anything I’ve reviewed so far, this is definitely one that I highly recommend to you! I’d really love to hear your thoughts on this one when you get the chance. Even this edition is 100% worth all the money in the world. Really hope you enjoy it when you get the chance! 😀
