Goodreads Synopsis:

NOW HIRING: ASSISTANT HARLEYS!

What with working full time as a psychiatrist, managing an apartment building full of needy tenants and rambunctious pets, skating in the roller derby and trying to start up a new romance, Harley Quinn has precious little time left over for her mission of do-gooding. Time to expand her operation with her very own team of assistants!

But only the best can trusted to spread Harley’s values of honor, trustworthiness and insubordination. The hiring process will be competitive…and bloody!

And that’s not all! In this volume, Harley also breaks into Arkham Asylum to save her bestie Poison Ivy, falls hard for dashing millionaire Bruce Wayne and spreads her own unique brand of holiday cheer.

Review:

This is another entertaining story featuring my favourite villain, Harley Quinn.

As you can tell from the cover, Harley encounters Bruce Wayne aka Batman in this story. Harley enters an auction to purchase a date with the millionaire. Of course, he knows that she’s Harley Quinn, but she doesn’t know that he is Batman, and the nemesis of her ex-boyfriend, the Joker. That made a very funny and one-sided situation.

Like other Harley Quinn comics, this one refers to the artists of the graphic novels. Sometimes, Harley had daydreams which are illustrated by different artists. She says it’s to give the artists a break so they can continue to draw the rest of the story. I love these funny comments on the creation of the graphic novel.

At the end of the story, Harley has recruited some personal assistants who will become her gang of Harleys. I look forward to seeing these new characters in the next graphic novels!
