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?)
