Writing: 3.75⭐️/5 
Alright, so it’s a fun collection, but it falls victim a bit to some sexist tropes and a bit of unnatural dialogue. I liked the way Harley Quinn’s thoughts were written, and I enjoyed the writing overall.

Artwork: 4.5⭐️/5 
I mean, I can’t really say too much bad about the artwork. Maybe the female characters are not proportioned correctly, which is pretty standard in comic books, unfortunately, but it’s a beautiful comic with beautiful art.

Characters: 4⭐️/5
I love Harley Quinn. I love her stubbornness, her tenacity, and even her obsessions. I would have loved a bit more about her and the Joker’s relationship, but even then the characters are well-fleshed and fun.

Plot: 4.5⭐️/5 
The plots of the comic books are fun and I enjoyed reading them.
