Publisher’s summary: Harley’s tried everything to avoid Lex Luthor and his stupid “Offer”—she’s destroyed half a dozen of Lex’s drones, she’s changed her name, her cell phone number—she even faked her own death! Why won’t this bald, pasty-faced weirdo take no for an answer? Harley Quinn takes on the crossover event of the summer in this comic-within-a-comic take on “DC’s Year of the Villain”!


Review

While Harley Quinn sits at her mother’s bedside, comic book Harley goes on a crossover adventure of Harley-sized proportions! Harley Quinn will have to keep her wits about her if she’s going to navigate her way through this issue.

Sam Humphries crafts the mother of all Harley Quinn crossovers in Harley Quinn (2016-) #64. Somehow Humphries sends Harley through not one, but two crossover series, not including the Year of the Villain crossover Harley is currently in, while writing the whole story as meta content to Harley’s personal storyline with her family. Sounds confusing, yet Humphries flawlessly executes the script. In issues like this, Humphries demonstrates his craft as well as his understanding of the character.

In terms of story, Harley Quinn (2016-) #64 presents Harley with an impossible conclusion. Whatever happens next, Harley is in for some major changes. Side note, the City of Bane crossover was my personal favorite.

Sami Basri’s creates Harley Quinn (2016-) #64 with amazing artistic dexterity. As Humphries moves Harley through other stories, Basri’s art transitions between styles.

Bottom Line

Harley Quinn (2016-) #64 is an intense, yet entertaining read. Once again, Sam Humphries proves a master Harley Quinn storyteller.
