Review

It’s just your run-of-the-mill, everyday heist to steal cancer drugs. What could possibly go wrong? Harley Quinn (2016-) #60 is an impressive battle of the wits. Whose wits you ask? Why Harley Quinn’s, of course!

Sam Humphries adds more pressure to Harley Quinn, this time toying with her emotions. In Harley Quinn (2016-) #60, Humphries pits Harley against her own worst fears, including a surprise guest. Between fight scenes with inter-dimensional creatures and Harley’s own mental projections, the issue has a lot to offer readers. All the while, Humphries keeps up the Harley banter, which moves the issue along at a clip pace. Just like Harley, readers will find themselves slightly off-kilter, wonder what the heck is going on!? This is not my favorite of the trials, but it was highly-entertaining. Humphries’ talent for writing Harley Quinn is present in every panel, especially those Harley one-liners.

Sami Basri’s art stole the show, so to speak. With action galore, Basri captured every kick-ass Harley moment. The inter-dimensional bugs had a kind of Alien vibe I really enjoyed, and the giant otherworldly brain was inspired. As for Harley’s special guest, well I won’t say much, other than it’s good to see a classic every now and again.

The Bottom Line

Harley Quinn (2016-) #60 is an enjoyable and entertaining read.  Sam Humphries and Sami Basri continue to produce a terrific story arc.
