Review of Harley Quinn: Gang of Harleys

Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys by Jimmy Palmiotti

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mr. Tieri and Mr. Palmiotti did a fantastic job of giving the Gang of Harleys their own individual niche, carving out their personalities a little more. (Not to mention filling in that gap in the storyline I knew I was missing to make sense of the Rebirth volumes) There was more to this installment, though, outlining that the majority of the villains Harley and her group tangle with aren’t one-dimensional. There’s pain taken to delve behind their actions, giving them motivation for their actions and personalities (not unlike the driving forces of the Gang, actually). And while you still won’t find yourself cheering for them, you can’t hate them 100%, either. It’s a balance that few writers manage to get exactly right (and why I love this series so much). Definitely an important addition to the shelf for any genuine Harley fan.

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.
