Review: Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Ten

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Ten

DC ComicsDC Digital First series Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red have been delivering something new and exciting with each new Friday release. The anthology series has a who’s who group of creators each putting their own spin on Harley Quinn. The stories and the art shift with each release. It keeps readers on their toes and it’s always fun to see the new and different take on the character.

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Ten, “Sunshine Getaway,” has Harley on the rampage to get her beloved hyenas Bud and Lou back. They’ve been kidnapped while Harley is on vacation in Slaughter Swamp and she wants them back. Dani‘s story and art have a very “Tank Girl” punk rock aesthetic about it. While the plot itself is the Harley we know, the attitude and look is something that really stands out.

Visually, the comic is far different than the other releases, which have all varied. Dani’s style is Tank Girl meets Frank Miller and Victor Santos. Images burst out of non-existent panels on a page. There’s a grit to it that brings Harley into an almost “indie punk” world of small press comics. It’s a style and look not expected from DC and diverges so much from what’s already been released in the anthology it’s hard to not take notice.

There’s also a rather “mature” spin to the comic. While the series hasn’t exactly been kid-friendly, this entry delivers a bit more punch with someone being shot and some torture. This isn’t the “comedic” Harley but a character that is on the warpath to get her friends back. At its heart, the digital entry is an 80s action film where the hero needs to defeat the bad guys to get their kidnapped friend back.

Aditya Bidikar‘s lettering ups the action with emphasis that really boosts the emotional and action hits. But, the lettering is even more key in that it matches Dani’s “rough” styling. The lettering matches the art style in presentation.

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Ten does reference Harley’s relationship with the Joker. Far too many chapters have. But it’s someone else she’s in pursuit of delivering something a little bit different. There’s a grittiness in the art and story that’s a bit different than the releases so far. It again shows off how many different spins you can give to a character and it’s been entertaining to see what each creator delivers. Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Ten is another solid entry in an anthology series that is a stand out digital release of the year.

But what is the price of remembering that which you have lost?
