You read that right. It’s Harley Quinn vs. Apokolips. The whole. Entire. Planet. Wait… what? A new era for Harley begins here in Harley Quinn Vol. 1, as writer Sam Humphries takes charge!

While on a tropical vacation, Harley Quinn is kidnapped by two Female Furies from Apokolips–and they’re making her an offer she can’t refuse: join the Furies, get super powers and do anything she wants! It’s a sweet deal, and all Harley has to do in return is hunt down rogue Fury Petite Tina. The bad news: Petite Tina is anything but petite!

Harley Quinn’s story starts a new era in this brand-new graphic novel! Writer Sam Humphries jumps behind the wheel, beginning with this all-new Vol. 1 jumping-on point. Collects Harley Quinn #43-49.


This volume is the start of the current series of Harley Quinn comics. Harley is one of my favourite superhero characters, so I was so excited to read this graphic novel!

This was a great story. Harley faced a few different villains in this book, including Granny Goodness. This book had three different storylines, so it was full of things to read!

I love when Harley reads comics and refers to the writers of her comics. It’s a great way of breaking the fourth wall, by recognizing that you are actually reading a comic!

I loved this graphic novel! I can’t wait to read the next one!

  1. I have yet to read any DC Comics as I have been caught up in Marvel for the past year but I do like Harley Quinn and this sounds like something I might enjoy reading. She’s my favorite character to fight with in Injustice 2.
