Since Death of the Family, the Joker has been missing, presumed dead. And Harley herself kicked off the New 52 by starring in Suicide Squad.
Last month, Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti gave Dr. Quinzel her own book in the form of an anthology introduction, Harley Quinn #0 with too many guest artists to even fit on the cover.
This month, the story takes off as we recommend Conner & Palmiotti’s new Harley Quinn #1 with series artist Chad Hardin. Harley rides a Harley into her new apartment in Coney Island left to her by an Arkham patient.
The series is off to a great start, and plenty of action and storytelling in this debut issue.
A Danzig lookalike Big Tony helps get her acquainted to the neighborhood just as she finds out she’ll still have some responsibilities in the building as landlord, mostly financial concerns. She applies to become a doctor in residence at a nursing home with some dangerous patients, and on the next page she is pwning a roller derby team tryout!
Fun stuff to watch Harley start over in the New 52, and also to explore her therapeutic side as she rekindles her practice.
But also this is fun because she hits people with a big wooden mallet.
Excited to see where this goes!
