Review

Harley Quinn is on her most serious mission yet. Unfortunately, nothing goes easy for our anti-hero and Harley Quinn finds herself in a precarious situation.

Sam Humphries walks the line between humor and horror in Harley Quinn (2016-) #63. As he moves Harley into the final stages of her trials, the stakes rise significantly. However, as aspects of Harley’s life intensify, Humphries throws humor into the mix. As was the case with the grim reaper this issue. Instead of depicting death as scary, Humphries hits you with nostalgia, bringing readers back to the lost days of video stores.

Bottom Line

Sam Humphries hits you with all the feels in Harley Quinn (2016-) #63.  The issue combines nostalgia, humor, and a touch of sadness in Harley sized doses.
