    Sam Humphries brings in the feels as Harley loses her mother. It's an odd dichotomy of melancholy and laughter as Harley mourns her mother while Humphries constantly skewers DC's big event Year of the Villain along with crossovers in general. I love how Lex Luther constantly harasses Harley to join them in their Doom nonsense. Harley also goes back in time to keep Crisis on Infinite Earths from starting all the big event hoopla in comics. If you at all know DC history, you are going to enjoy thi Sam Humphries brings in the feels as Harley loses her mother.

If you at all know DC history, you are going to enjoy this. Sami Basri's art is clean and spot on. I really dig it. Mark Russell then writes the last two issues and shows us how great a Mark Russell penned Harley Quinn book would be. I want this to happen so badly now! In his first issue, the Hamburgler gets out of prison after 30 years for embezzlement from McDonalds. It's hilarious. Then, Russell takes the Year of the Villain special issue seriously having Harley host a Villain of the Year awards show. Readers actually got to vote on who would win each award so Mike Norton drew pages for each of the villains winning each award. Those are all included as well.

    This book just keeps getting weirder and weirder, but I'm starting to enjoy it more. The fourth wall gets obliterated here, and we have a hilarious but really odd Supervillain Award Ceremony issue. There's still some serious drama related to Quinn's mother, but overall this the best way to describe this volume is "wacky."

    The absolute irreverence contained in this Volume alone should make you want to read Harley Quinn's titles for the rest of time. I laughed so hard at so many of these jokes, I'm still a bit bubbly as I write this review. Highlights: - First issue picks up with Harley's mom in the hospital being treated for cancer. You would think that this would be a somber moment with lots of tears, but instead Harley uses it to shatter the 4th wall and read her family (while hospital bedside) a comic book versi The absolute irreverence contained in this Volume alone should make you want to read Harley Quinn's titles for the rest of time.

You would think that this would be a somber moment with lots of tears, but instead Harley uses it to shatter the 4th wall and read her family (while hospital bedside) a comic book version of Apex Lex approaching her to be part of Doom (given upgrades - see Year of the Villain if you don't know) - Second issue, post-Mom's death (yes it happened anyway), picks up with the "Trials of Harley Quinn" storyline from the previous Volume. She passes the final test, "Bravery in the face of grief" and is taken to Lord Chaos and Lord Order to receive her cosmic powers - Third: After speaking with her mom's spirit, Harley gives her new cosmic abilities to Mirand'r, newly restored to life after helping Harley - As the Doom sigil appears in the sky, Harley is convinced she will not let a DC crossover ruin her book, so with the help of Booster Gold, she goes back in time to stop the first huge crossover "Crisis on Infinite Earths" from happening. (This issue is hilarious, seeing Harley interact with previous versions of our heroes.) - Harley tries to bring her family back together with a Thanksgiving meal, then a misadventure in the Christmas Hamlet. (So many holiday jokes and puns here...) - As if your sides weren't hurting already... we then get an issue where Harley tries to help an old man who got released from prison and gets drawn into a crime story using knock-off McDonald's characters. (so silly...) - We end with Harley's Villain of the Year special issue, which is written like a Villain awards show. See? Hilarity at every corner. Bravo Sam Humphries... you've proven this book is still hilarious and needed. Strong recommend.

    This volume is better than the previous one, but is overall a mixed bag of good ideas mixed with ho-hum story telling. Okay, I will admit that I am not found of the sappy Harley Quinn losing her mother to cancer story line. It is better in this book than the previous one, but it is still a drag to read. I want my Harley stories to be silly, funny, and demented. However, the stories with Harley trying to figure out ways to get through the holidays without her recently departed mother is insightful This volume is better than the previous one, but is overall a mixed bag of good ideas mixed with ho-hum story telling.

I want my Harley stories to be silly, funny, and demented. However, the stories with Harley trying to figure out ways to get through the holidays without her recently departed mother is insightful and shows that underneath the crazy outward appearance she has normal human emotions after all. The inclusion of past comic book story plots here and there as a way to relate to the current story is awkward and could have been handled much better. Especially, with Harley trying to go back in time to stop cross-overs and the crisis story lines. This needs to be done again, but in a longer trade or graphic novel style. The humor and inside jokes could be excellent. The parody story with the McDonald's characters and the bonus pages at the end about what if someone else would have one the Villain Awards ends this trade on a fun and hopeful tone that the next book will be better.

    Traditionally I'm into DC continuity and the more serious books... I've only drifted into Harley Quinn series from the New52 era... it wasn't bad but definitely wasn't inspired either... But I'm always willing to grab issues or trades of newer stuff as it comes along. I picked this cause its within the last couple years and it was sort of a center point. I can go backwards and read older stuff but there is also new volumes to check out... I did not expect much or to particularly like this.

But DAMN if this wasn't super meta, fourth wall smashing, heartfelt fun. The stories are all over and only loosely strung together. Doesn't matter! I'm totally in. The last time I enjoyed a ridiculous satirical comedic DC book like this was Major Bummer, my all time favorite reluctant hero... Harley Quinn and the string of guest as well as a journey down DC event history is a great big sledgehammer smashing hit. If you like wild and crazy mayhem with a heart, check this volume out!

    How do you cope with heavy emotional states in a character like Harley Quinn? It's a complicated question - one that plenty of writers have explored (at least, as far as I've read). And Mr. Humphries and Mr. Russell tackled it in one of the best ways I've encountered to date. While I wanted to throttle them for the opening of the volume (they went there; they actually went there), the handling of the final trial proceeded better than I imagined.

While I wanted to throttle them for the opening of the volume (they went there; they actually went there), the handling of the final trial proceeded better than I imagined. And instead of cycling down a whirlpool of half-choked laughter the way other writers have, they launched into Meredith's comic on comic book events. Which was so perfect and accurate, you can't help but laugh and feel at ease. They nailed the average reader's perception so perfectly, too. Because I HATE those stupid notes encouraging you to buy fifty different comics to comprehend a single plotline (and I don't do it - often leaving me with a vague idea of what's going on). Everything tied together perfectly. Well done, fellas.

    Another collection that's a little hit-and-miss as Humphries again overdoes the fourth-wall-breaking. The main story arc of the first few issues is the better part, contrasting the craziness with Harley facing a personal tragedy. The comic pokes fun at crossover events, here focussing on The Year of the Villain and, to a lesser extent, Event Leviathan, then culminating in Harley trying to undo Crisis on Infinite Earths. Plus a brief crossover with Justice League Dark and (view spoiler)[ Scooby Another collection that's a little hit-and-miss as Humphries again overdoes the fourth-wall-breaking.

After that we get Thanksgiving and Christmas issues that mostly work, a spoof on McDonald's that's just a bit too silly, and a mock award ceremony for DC's villains that's honestly rather dull.

    Public library copy. This wouldn't ever be a title I'd purchase or revisit, the artwork was fine and better than the book cover, however comedy and inside jokes about DC and their crossovers aside, there's not a whole lot here to make the reading experience memorable or stand out above other titles.

    A more mature Harley Quinn. Better for it? Well, better than the more banal writings but not the Harley Quinn we tend to look for. A good read (no pun intended) but may not be what you are looking for.

    As a devoted Harley fan, it’s always lovely to jump back into her adventures. 5/5 stars

    A strange holiday special mishmash. But the first issues were actually heartfelt before Harley rushes off on her grief-journey.
