Comic Book Review: Harley Quinn: Welcome to Metropolis (2014) TPB

Harley Quinn: Welcome to Metropolis (2014) TPB
Author: Kesel, Karl
Publisher: DC Comics
Pub date: 2014


Having played out every trick on the fine citizens of Gotham City, Harley Quinn - the Joker's former girlfriend - decides that another city deserves her attention. 

After all, why menace one city when you can menace two? Especially if the second has a Man of Steel guarding it. Harley high tails it to Metropolis, with ally Poison Ivy.


This was a very fun Harley book with her personality still very much BTAS/Dini-inspired instead of the crazy Suicide Squad/New52 version. 

The art by Terry Dodson in the majority of the issues stands out with very vibrant and sexy style, while the latter half by Craig Rousseau, while serviceable is just not as lively or attractive that a Harley/Ivy combo book needed to be.

Kesel stands out by going ahead and having fun with the book with Harley taking on a new personality to infiltrate the Daily Planet and mingle with the likes of Jimmy Olson while still vamping it up around as Harley and chasing around town with Poison Ivy her pal.
