Review of Harley Quinn Vol. 5: The Joker’s Last Laugh

Harley Quinn, Vol. 5: The Joker’s Last Laugh by Amanda Conner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ms. Conner and Mr. Palmiotti delivered one of the best volumes to date. (And, yes, I realize I’ve read things out of order. I read what I get when I get them) Harley’s confrontation with the Joker is everything it should be – and probably not what most people would expect. The emotional (and psychological) growth is phenomenal. You want to cheer (and then scream all the more when you realize those silly “Harley Loves Joker” volumes appear in the Rebirth collections). And to cap things off with a Harley-version of the “three wishes gone wrong” trope? Priceless. It settles the world down – particularly for those of us who know what’s coming next. (And, seriously, the flaming dogs running around the loft – how do you not burst out laughing?)

I speak the thoughts rattling around in my brain, sharing topics I think other people want and should hear (or are afraid to talk about themselves). I bring my personality and quirky state of mind to everything I write; serious topics shouldn't be devoid of humor. That includes my blog and freelance work (part of my charm). I've been writing for as long as I can remember. It's a source of solace and enjoyment for me. I'm lucky enough to call what I love my career - so it's NOT work! I live in Virginia with the Minions (four cats and a Greyhound) and my wonderful husband, who ensures I stay fed - no cereal for dinner - and as close to sane as I can get.
