Harley’s Little Black Book

It’s the sensational debut of a massive team-up series in which Harley meets (and almost certainly annoys) the greatest heroes and villains of the DC Universe! Harley is pairing up with the greatest heroes of all time, featuring adventures with Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and more! But can she keep up with superheroes of this caliber?

Celebrated Harley co-writers Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti take on this monumental series, spinning off of the best-selling HARLEY QUINN series. Collects HARLEY’S LITTLE BLACK BOOK #1-6.



I’m admittedly a Harley fan. I know her mental health isn’t perfect and she makes ethically questionable choices (and I’m being nice with both of those descriptions) but I love that she embraces who she is with no apologies. She may not be one of the best role models but she’s a strong woman who stands up for herself and others albeit in a tendency that could be morally and legally questionable – but at least she does it!

In this desperate to be politically correct yet still offending everyone world I desperately enjoy Harley because she is completely NOT politically correct, NOT even trying hard to be, NOT caring who she offends and I LOVE IT. It’s my escape from the social justice warriors, feminist warriors, and every other warrior currently gathering in the US like a political tornado cause you just don’t see that same level of epic infighting about EVERYTHING anywhere else on the planet. Harley lets us just breathe for a bit.

These stories are all great ones to have and read many times over. I wish they would make a series on Netflix or something based on these stories. You have to admire her spunk and devil may care attitude, or complete lack of respect depending on your POV, when it comes to how she interacts with the ‘good’ guys like Wonder Woman. You can’t take anything away from Wonder Woman, my daughters love her, but there also has to be a place in this world for Harley because not everyone can be a WW – we need the opposite too just to keep things interesting. Her messing around with the lantern rings had me shaking my head and laughing – cause you know, only Harley. Harley trying to be good in her own way but never quite pulling it off.

Along with some well told stories thankfully the artwork measures up. You get an insurgence of color, detail, activity, and emotion swirling together to bring the battles to life as if these were playing out before you and Harley becomes even more outrageous and impressive than she already was designed to be.

This series was just another win in my Why I love Harley column.

Thank you to Netgalley and DC Comics for allowing me to review this book.
