I have always been a big fan of Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Catwoman and the Riddler. So, lucky me, this book did not leave me disappointed! I am craving the next book in this series wildly – now I’ll just have to find it.
This ensemble works well together and are quite amusing. Yes, there are some aspects of this book that I didn’t like (*cough* their body types *cough*), but you get what you get with comic books. I don’t like that Harley isn’t very smart, but that seems to be her portrayal often in the media (before Suicide Squad, that is). She also doesn’t seem to be the main focus, which is kind of sad. Harley Quinn is just as important as the other three, and probably more well known at this point.
The plot and overall storylines are amusing and easy to follow. I like that each comic leave it open to continue, but also closes the story so if you wanted to stop you could.
I do have to say, this book has left me with a high expectation for DC comics. I’ve read other comics since and have been left disappointed because of this book. To me, it’s a high end, fun story arc that should be read by comic fans wanting a little fun in their life. It’s definitely not one of the darker DC arcs.
I like the art style of this book – it’s bright, it’s beautifully drawn and there’s lots of details in the background.
Overall – I loved this book! Five out of five stars! I want more!
