Goodreads Synopsis:

Harley Quinn has a tough road ahead: travel through time and space to fix all the continuity errors she’s created in her many misadventures. Luckily, she’ll have help, because riding shotgun is none other than special guest star Jonni DC, Continuity Cop! Good thing, too, because if Harley fails, it means her own mom will be lost forever. Hey, that sounds more painful than funny! Learn more in these tales from HARLEY QUINN #50-54.


These Harley Quinn comics keep getting better and better. This one had me laughing out loud.

I love it when Harley reads her own comics in the story. She finds one that is telling the story of her current life, doing exactly what she’s doing. That causes a continuity problem, making the entire DC universe explode. Superheroes from the Golden Age of comics, decades ago, start appearing in her modern world. This was a funny way of creating a mess for Harley to clean up.

The final comic was separate from that storyline. Harley is allergic to cats so she starts giving away her neighbour’s cats for free. This causes an uproar in the pet industry, which is run by men. They believe pets should only be sold to men, by men. It’s an absurd rule, but many of our gendered aspects of society don’t really make sense when you think about it. This was a great comic!

I loved this graphic novel! It was hilarious and entertaining.
