mayoral bid is over before it’s barely begun. Blackmailed out of the race, she
has few options, and fewer still when her main squeeze Mason Macabre comes up
missing. Kidnapped by the henchmen of incumbent Mayor DePerto, he’s being held
as insurance against any future retaliation.
Harley has a whole cadre of cronies working for her, and is able to track down
Mason’s whereabouts. Oddly enough, she chooses to leave some of her closest
allies behind, while taking the near-homicidal Harley Sinn with her. Well, it
makes sense, doesn’t it? If you’re going up against a monster, you want a
monster of your own on your side. But will they arrive in time?
storyline in the latest issue of Harley Quinn has just about run its course. I
anticipate it will come to a close next issue, and that’s fine by me. It was
fun at first, but like many stories I think it’s time to wrap things up.
artwork is perfect, as always. It’s a charming constant in an industry where
most artists usually only run for a year or slightly more. Maybe it’s only been
slightly more than a year, but it’s so comfortable, it seems much longer. I’m
good with that.
