I guess Harley Quinn wasn’t invited to the usual DC Christmas With the Super-Heroes, so her title featured her own holiday hootenanny. It surprises me that Harley celebrates Christmas, as I always assumed (perhaps unfairly) that she was Jewish. Blame it on the New York accent.


The Quinn’s are in town – the ‘rents and three brothers, all of whom have their own issues that shed insight into Harley’s own mental instabilities. But it’s a bittersweet reunion, as a yuletide tragedy strikes the Quinn family – and we aint talking about a ruined holiday dinner, though that is part of the menu.


John Timms returns to the drawing board for this issue, seemingly modeling his Harley after actress Evanna Lynch. It’s taken me the better part of 50 issues to suss this out, and even though Lynch is Irish, she certainly looks the part. Perhaps when Margot Robbie moves on from the role…


But this is merely a brief interlude before greater things, as the story ends with the return of a beloved DC character – assuming it’s who it looks like to me (I haven’t kept up with recent costume changes). The next few issues promise “cat-astrophic calamity” followed by a “bat-tastic team-up.” Draw your own conclusions as to what that means.


Rating: 8/10
