Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys by Jimmy Palmiotti
Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys (2016) - Jimmy Palmiotti,Frank Tieri,Mauricet

With mischief afoot and tricks to be had, Harley Quinn and her Gang of Harleys are loose and no one is safe! Battling villians or saving civilians, which side are they on, only the Harleys know!

The best-selling creative team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Frank Tieri comes this mini-series Harley Quinn and her Gang of Harleys!

Collecting: Harley Quinn and her Gang of Harleys 1-6

 
**********
 

Harley Quinn decides to test her Gang of Harley by pretending to be kidnapped, unfortunately, they find out that it's a test (after spending a lot of time "looking" for her), but of course, then Harley gets kidnapped for real by a real psycho. Now the Harley's have to save Harley for real...

 
I must admit that it has taken me some time to warm up to the Harley's, but now with this volume have I finally started to like them and I quite enjoyed reading this volume. Now, the villain, the psycho who kidnapped Harley is a bit pathetic, a rich wannabe Harley Quinn who is pissed off because she failed the audition to join the Harley's. Still, the volume was good, despite not having a cool villain to fight off, thanks to Harley and her gang.
 

 
I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through Edelweiss for an honest review!

Really wish there was more Deadshot
Suicide Squad (2016-) #25 - Rob Williams,Eddy Barrows,Eber Ferreira,Adriano Lucas,Giuseppe Cafaro

I'm finding him an... underused character in this, at least as of late, and it's disappointing.   I still find him one of the most dynamic character on this team and the fact that Killer Croc is in love with June Moon doesn't really make up for that, despite the fact that how that relationship will play out is fascinating to me as well. 

 

Still, nice to see this storyline wrapped up.   It was feeling just slightly drawn out and I'm annoyed at that in King's Batman already, which has dropped down to my the comic that I look forward to the least thanks to his overly extended storyline - a storyline that doesn't hold half the nuance or depth that his run on Vision did, so I'm also annoyed at that.   Which means that the other DC titles have been less appealing to me because I'm jaded by one of my favorite authors letting me down on one of DC's biggest titles.

Loving this series again!
Suicide Squad (2016-) #24 - Rob Williams,Eddy Barrows,Eber Ferreira,Adriano Lucas,Agustin Padilla

This is one that has highs and lows for me: I thought it had to go somewhere more quickly at one point, but when it's at it's paranoiac best, it really just works.   It gets super creepy, all the while explaining why Waller is acting so out of character, furthering Katana's character, and pulling the Suicide Squad together as a team again. 

 

Yay!

 

Also, some epic Batman fighting Killer Croc here.

My co-worker warned me this went downhilll
Justice League vs. Suicide Squad (2016-2017) - Joshua Williamson,Rob Williams,Tim Seeley,Jason Fabok,Riley Rossmo,Tony Daniel,Jesus Merino,Fernando Pasarin,Robson Rocha,Howard Porter,Giuseppe Cafaro,Christian Duce

I liked the first issue, but not enough to pay like four or five bucks for every issue.   (And then I'd have to buy the Justice League tie-ins, too.)   Also, I think said co-worker was right: this went downhill.   It because a convoluted mess with an unsatisfactory ending. 

 

Perhaps if they'd done some solid character work, but they didn't do that, either. 

 

The art was pretty, though, and the Killer Croc fight against Aquaman was funny.  I also didn't hate it.   Most of this made sense up until it didn't, up until it became a sprawling mass of why is this happening?

 

Glad it's over!

Better
Suicide Squad (2016-) #23 - Rob Williams,Eddy Barrows,Eber Ferreira,Adriano Lucas,Agustin Padilla,Gus Vazquez

Less directly said about the Croc/Enchantress relationship, and more focus on getting things done. In this case, Waller orders the team to go after Killer Frost and Batman - and they start with Frost.   Still, they all know this will get Batman's attention.   There's more about Killer Frost and Diablo, too, especially since Waller forces Diablo to go after Frost when he claims to be, and genuinely seems to be, sick.   

 

Katana, and how loyal she is, why she isn't chipped, and what she wants to do for the team versus what she will do if pushed are all in here as well, and that's more exciting character development, even as a bigger storyline unfolds - a storyline that ties directly into the last storyline, and will have some big implications in the larger DC world. 

 

Looking forward to the next issue.
