Goodreads Synopsis:

Harley Quinn’s crazy world on has gotten even more crazier when an unexpected, contagious enemy comes to town! Protecting her neighborhood just got a little harder, good thing they have chainsaws!

Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti continue their mammoth run on this New York Times best-selling title in Harley Quinn, Volume 1: Die Laughing!


I loved this graphic novel! This is the first Harley Quinn comic I’ve read. My only experience with her is from the movie Suicide Squad. I loved her in that movie. 

Harley is hilarious. I laughed out loud so many times. She’s constantly making mistakes and just throwing herself into the middle of fights without thinking about it first. 

The premise for the first couple of comics was so crazy. An alien came to earth and disguised himself as a cow. Then he ended up being processed and turned into hot dogs. Everyone who ate the hot dogs turned into zombies. Of course, they couldn’t find the source of their illness because how would they figure out that they ate an alien in their hot dogs? 

There were some graphic images, but they were so extreme that they just seemed ridiculous. It took away from the seriousness of the scene. 

I recommend this book if you like graphic novels. This is the first in the series.
