What Just Happened:

Harley has been captured! After capturing Petite Tina, she continues to
do as Granny Goodness asks. But when Harley realizes that she’s sending people to their deaths, the “old” Harley comes back and puts a stop to it, thus landing her in a holding cell next to Tina to be “reprogrammed”.

This Week:

Despite the great effort Granny’s minions put into reprogramming Harley, it didn’t work and Harley was her unapologetic self. She broke out, asking Tina to come with her. After some hesitation, Tina joins her and they are on the path to break out of Apokolips! But first, Harley needs her new hammer.

On their way to finding the hammer, Harley discovers Granny’s creepy obsession with Apokolips and the master plan to use the Splinter of Destiny to take over the universe. I was feeling like this was a bit like Infinity War since this weapon would give them the power to take over planets without a fight, but as far as I could tell, no gauntlet is involved. Harley does find her hammer and has an inner struggle with herself once Tina tells her they need to save all the lowlives. Reluctantly, Harley agrees to help and they head back.

Jump to Granny Goodness overseeing the completion of her Subjukator. Suddenly, Darksied appears before them, telling Granny how he knows her deepest desires and that he has them too. This should have been a huge indicator that it wasn’t what it seemed, but Granny buys into it until Harley says something very Harley-esque and Granny figures out their ruse. She tries to take away Harley’s new hammer, but Harley holds tight and defeats her in the process.

My Opinions:

I am a word nerd, which I don’t hide well and is pretty obvious with my observations of all comics books. What I like about this book is the writing is witty and the art reflects that. I loved the little flashback to Harley and Joker when Tina was talking about being used. I think the combination of wit in writing and beauty in art on the panels is remarkable and so fitting for a non-traditional character like Harley.

Summary
Harley is such a breath of fresh air, which I know she would not like to be called, but it really is true. She so unapologetic about who she is and it’s amazing to watch her rediscover herself. This arc was well done and the story is something everyone can relate to. I loved it!
Good
  • Harley "finds" herself once again
  • The sing-song-y rhymes ended!
Bad
  • Granny wasn't as big a bad guy as expected
  • The whole scene in Granny's room
