Review of Harley Quinn: No Good Deed

Harley Quinn Vol. 1: No Good Deed by Stephanie Nicole Phillips

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ms. Phillips? You are my new hero.

I was nervous about a new reboot for Harley, wondering where the plans would take her. Previous writers have thrown her character all over the map. And while faithful readers always hope for “bigger and better things,” we’re not in charge of storylines.

But this? Pure beauty and genius. It’s everything one could hope for the continuation of Harley’s journey. Ms. Phillips retains the best qualities of her character while introducing a new take on Gotham. You get to see the further evolution of Harley Quinn, and it’s glorious.

(I just want to throw in there that I’ve been using the card suit symbols for my logo since 2020 – before the 2021 publication copyright. I LOVE the new look, though – well, obviously)

Everything from the story arc to the emotion – and the return of a solid fourth wall narration – rings genuine and fresh. I’m head over heels in love with it, and I can’t wait to stalk release dates!
