So, Harley is back in Coney Island, taking a break from the madness. It’s hardly a tale about Harley relaxifying, though, this DC Comics Multiversity Harley Screws Up The DCU #1.
Yes, she’s back on the home front, getting hugs and slaps all over. Then things get weirder: an estate inheritance leads to time travel!
Writer Frank Tieri keeps it silly and loud, pointing the slap and tickle “ovah heah” and “ovah dere”. We dig the groovy threads, the splashes of colour, the dayglo-everything-everwhere-all-of-the-time (art by Logan Faerber) plus the many-many-charactered-main cover by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti.
There’s not a lot to say about this issue, I suppose, as it delivers the antics and madcap-back-and-forth, with a sincere wish to entertain. Perhaps we want a bit more meat in terms of plot or subplot, but the toppings are all there, the stage is lit, the actors are in position, and the ride has just begun, to be continued just in time, in issue two!
