**I received a free eARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

This volume is all about Harley standing up for her loved ones and, oh boy, you don't want to mess with Harley's people all right, she'll do the craziest things just to get them to safety.

Mason Macabre is having an awful time in prison and Harley needs to rescue him. Things get even worse when he's transferred to Arkham Asylum, and you all know who's there too.

Not only are there some really good Joker references that made me feel incredibly bad for Harley.

But he also makes an appearance, and it makes for one hell of a reunion between these two! Not pretty at all, and with a lot of tension.

After all this drama, there's another story included, where Harley finds a genie in a lamp and gets all the wishes she wants, however ridiculous they may be. And most of them are ridiculous all right, it's Harley Quinn we're talking about. She even pulls a prank on the Justice League with these wishes.

And don't you just love how this woman always ends up befriending her enemies? It's endearing.

This volume was great and I loved that there was so much art included as well! I especially enjoyed seeing the sketches, so we get to see part of the process that goes into creating these comics.

I just hope we get to see more of Harley interacting with the Joker in the future.

What do you think of Harley and her relationship with the Joker?

Thank you for reading! ♥


  1. Actually this is not my taste, I suppose though I did enjoy your review.

    1. Haha yeah, I can see why this wouldn't be everybody's cup of tea :P

  2. very beautiful pictures

  3. It must have been so interesting to see that reunion go down and all the tension that comes with it. Their relationship definitely is interesting. And from the pictures you've included here as well, I do like the looks of the artwork! Great review :)
