Undercover Punker 2 starts with the skull bags getting ready for their set and worrying because they only have a few songs and are asked to do more to give Purple Satin time to appear.

Turns out they were right to worry as they are rubbish and the crowd let them know EXACTLY how bad they are. Harley stops the gig and drags a crowd member onto the stage and kicks the crap out of him to excite the baying mob and also Purple Satin who are really impressed by her next shocking stunt which you HAVE to read about!

Harley’s antics had the desired effect as after their set she is invited to hang with Purple Satin. She forms a plan to find out their hideout and have the Skullbags search it for the missing parcels. Once Harley meets up with the band she notices Jellos soap necklace and instantly recognizes it as her present from the Joker leading to a flashback to her days as Harleen Quinzel and her therapy sessions with Joker specifically the one where he first gave her the necklace.

As Jello and Billy Blood fight over who will ‘spend the evening’ with Harley on the way to the party the rest of the Skullbags are discussing Eggys origins (turns out he is half Chinese). Jello, Billy, and Harley reach their destination and after a little resistance they end up downstairs somewhere that Harley will be in her ELEMENT!!

I seriously love this arc and think Harley looks amazing as a punk! Tony, Eggy, and Red Tool are funny as a triple act and the look of the comic is brilliant especially in the flashback as the artwork turns almost watercolour which really contrasts the sharpness and vibrance of the rest of the tale

About Martin Cameron

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
