Captain Malik and the crew of the Vihaan II harvest resources from the giant corpses of alien gods found on the edge of human space. While other autopsy ships race to salvage the meat, minerals, and metals that sustain the human race, Malik sees an opportunity to finally break free from this system by being the first to find a living god. But Malik’s obsession with the gods will push his crew into danger at the darkest reaches of space—unless the rogue agent on their trail can stop them first…

“Black, White Knight, and Red”
From the pages of Sean Murphy’s BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT, a sneak peek at the upcoming spinoff series BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT PRESENTS HARLEY QUINN! Harley looks back on the night of her first arrest by Batman. In the heat of one of her earliest escapades with the Joker, Harley’s high spirits are tanked and she gets a cold glimpse of the chaos to come when violence escalates and their heist is crashed by Batman and Robin. Forced to save face or take the high road, Harley makes a choice that will cement her unspoken bond with Batman for years to come.

Review: Harley Quinn Black + White + Red Chapter Six

Harley Quinn Black + White + Red Chapter Six

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Six is an interesting entry in the DC Digital First series. This chapter isn’t the first to be tied into something that has come out before. But, it’s the first chapter to attempt to get you to purchase something that’s coming out. It’s both a stand-alone comic and a prelude in some ways.

For those unfamiliar, this digital comics series is an anthology. Each chapter stands alone and features a different creative team. This chapter does indeed do that but it’s arguable how well it stands alone.

Written by Sean Gordon Murphy and Katana Collins, Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Six ties into Batman: White Knight. It also acts as a tie-in to Batman: White Knight Presents: Harley Quinn spin-off series. It’s a cute story that has Harley reflecting upon her first arrest by Batman as she sits with her kids writing Valentine’s Day cards. The chapter is full of humor and solid moments that truly make the issue.

Harley and the Joker are in the midst of a robbery as Batman and Robin show up to break it up. We get some action in a fight but much of that focus on the comic is about Harley’s actions during it and what she brings to the Joker. It’s an examination of the character from the perspective of the Detective instead of a psychiatrist. In that way, the issue takes a similar approach as previous chapters but from a different perspective and a different narrative structure.

Art is provided by Matteo Scalera and lettering by Andworld Design. I love this art style and the use of colors is fantastic. The “present” is presented in black and white while the past is red and white. The art style is so perfect and is reminiscent of Murphy’s own style though with a bit more of an animated Batman feel to it. There’s a lot of small details throughout that enhance Murphy and Collins’ story. Harley’s facial reaction or what she’s doing as the Joker threatens a guard are all small details that add to the character and deliver her demeanor. There’s a big difference in a character standing and watching a threat versus one jumping around like a small child in the background. One is cold while the other is a bit whimsical. It’s a simple choice but it makes all the difference.

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Six is a fine addition to the anthology and it’s one whose art really stands out. The story itself, as stated above, is an examination of Harley but through Batman’s lense. Harley telling a story too feels like we’ve seen it before. So in that sense, this chapter doesn’t quite stand out like previous entries. But, what’s presented is really good and entertaining and Harley fans should enjoy it. For those who want to pick up a one-shot they can read, it provides that option too. Overall, not the best of the bunch so far but a solid read with fantastic art.
