Granted, Harley tries not to be self-serving, willing to share the wishes in such a way that others might benefit. Nor is it all mischief-making on her part – though Diana’s reaction to a pantless GL is priceless. And yes, there are guest-stars, such as the JLA and Power Girl.
Sadly, the endless schtick of wishes gone wrong wears thin, much like a Kevin Nealon bit from SNL (look him up). And like an SNL skit turned into a film, the premise fades rather quickly, begging the question, “Why are we here?”
Not that this
a bad story – I just don’t understand why it was presented in this format. It
easily could have been presented more effectively within the pages of the
mainstream Harley title.
But the art is spot-on perfect, with Conner & Co. getting help from Chad Hardin, Otto Schmidt and Ben Caldwell. One might expect it to be a bit jarring, to have multiple art styles, but their placement within the wish sequences makes it work.
7/10 (despite the length)
