A new story arc from Frank Tieri, offering Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti a well-earned break. The writing team has been creating Harley stories pretty regularly since the series began. Though why DC would publish two issues a week apart – PLUS the Careful What You Wish For special – is something I can quite dope out.


Harley has returned to Coney Island, keen on enjoying some alone time to cycle through recent losses and defeats. Though she eventually came out on top, the victory was hard won. She has retreated from her usually entourage, but they, like true friends, are too invested in her well-being to respect her wishes.


So when her pal Tony goes missing, she’s determined to solve the mystery on her own. She follows Tony’s last footsteps, while the Harleys visit Arkham to have a chat with Dr. Kirk Langstrom, who may have a clue to share regarding the mysterious bat-creature responsible for Tony’s disappearance.


It’s been a while since I’ve seen Man-Bat, so a return engagement was welcome. However the truth was a little bit of a zig-zag of logic. Inaki Miranda’s artwork is serviceable, her inking a bit heavy-handed for my taste, but your mileage may vary.


Rating: 7/10
