Harley Quinn Black + White + Red Chapter Nine

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

HARLEY QUINN: BLACK + WHITE + RED CHAPTER NINE

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red has been an interesting digital series. Each chapter has allowed a new creative team to show what they can do with Harley Quinn. While every chapter in the digital anthology has been different, nine chapters in, many of them share themes, plots, or small details. One thing that has been a thread through so many is Harley’s relationship with Ivy. Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Nine takes that common aspect of the character mixed with Indiana Jones in a vibe that’s very much Batman: The Animated Series.

Indiana Quinn” is by Joe Quinones who handles story and art duties with Clayton Cowles on lettering. The story has Harley messing up Ivy’s latest heist. Ivy wants to steal a document that’ll lead her to the Fountain of Youth. Unfortunately, Harley complicates that in many ways leading to some tension between the two and Harley wanting to make up for it.

What’s interesting about the chapter is Quinones channeling Batman: The Animated Series in the pacing and the overall feel of the comic. The chapter’s look would fit well in that world though Quinones’ style is a bit different. Quinones’ style is simple in some ways like the heralded animated series. But, the layout on each page is very complex with some pages featuring a layering of images that create virtual panels though none exist. The layouts too break from the normal four and three-panel grids playing with size and positioning. That helps create a flow and pacing of the comic that feels quick but entertaining. That entertainment is helped by the innocence of Harley who just wants to help but acts as a stumbling block for Ivy in numerous ways.

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red Chapter Nine is a fun entry in the DC Digital First anthology. While not the strongest released it’s still a fun read that’s well worth the 99 cents. What stands out is how it evokes Harley’s origin in Batman: The Animated Series while still doing its own thing. It’s an example of what the anthology series seems to be about. It allows creators to deliver their own spin and honor an iconic character.
