Here we go again with another month with our girl Harley Quinn. Harley Quinn issue 7 is published by DC Comics and came out June 18, 2014. This issue is written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner. The art is by Chad Hardin with cover art by Amanda Conner.
In my past reviews of this Harley Quinn comic series, which you can find here at CtrlAltNerd.com, I have not been impressed. It took me a while to come around to understand that this comic isn't meant to be taking seriously. It's just a fun comic where we get the chance to see Harley be herself. It reminds me of the feelings I got while reading Gotham City Sirens. In no way am I saying this comic is like Gotham City Sirens, oh no. It just shows us a Harley Quinn away from the worries of the Joker. I'm just saying that this is a fun comic to read and enjoy and take us out of all the dark serious stuff that's going on in Gotham right now.
Poison Ivy has returned in this issue to help Harley once again find out who put the hit out on her. And we do find out and I warn you it's not a huge shocking reveal in no way, shape, or form. It wasn't any where near what I wanted it to be. I believe the writers could have tried a little harder than they did. I feel kind of cheated. Now I'm worried about the story line. The whole comic has been super slowly, I mean so slow I wanted to scream, leading up to the big reveal of "who put the hit out on Harley Quinn". So now what will the writers do? What will be next for Harley? I hope it's something better than that stupid hit out on Harley crap that fell so short.
What did you think of this issue? Do you feel the same way I do about the "big" reveal? Until next month Harley Quinn, until next month.
