Harley loves a distraction and luckily for her shes Harley Quinn, and boy does she know how to get distracted.

While most people would throw themselves into work or a tv programme to take their mind off things Harley goes a little further. She goes on an intergalactic mission to become a demi-god by completing some massive trials to test the very core of her being. Yup, that will do it.

It could be the first test already revealing itself but she has also been framed for a murder back in Gotham sending Batman to chase her down which of course ends in an epic fight scene between the pair. Surprisingly Batman seems to hold back maybe, just maybe the greatest detective can see through Harley’s strong facade and can see she is hurting over her mom. Whether he believes in her or not it looks like a higher force is manipulating things so that they might have to team up and fight together to beat it. Could be really interesting to see the dynamics these two would bring as a team!

I love how these issues are seemingly chaotic and full of random encounters but in reality, the story flows really well and no matter how crazy the idea becomes the artwork is good enough to make it fit in seamlessly, love it!

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
