It’s Harley Quinn-crazy cat lady! Seems one of Harley’s tenants used to be a small-time, cat-themed crook, but now is just a lonely retiree hoarding felines in his apartment. Gross! Harley takes it upon herself to find homes for the “cat burglars,” but in trying to get them adopted, she runs afoul of the local pet store, “Men O’Paws.” But who’s gonna feed the kitties while Harley fights this turf war? And more importantly, who’ll clean their litter box?

It’s a Harley ho-ho-holiday special! Nothing’s worse than spending the holidays with your uninvited, unannounced family-just ask Harley.

But the dysfunctional family dynamic masks a major secret that the whole Quinn family is keeping from Harley. Will the big reveal mean an even bigger family blowout, or can Harley’s clan end their squabbling and remember the true meaning of the season?

It’s Fury vs. Fury in a furious showdown! Harley’s tasked with bringing in Petite Tina – except, turns out, the reason she failed as a Fury is that she’s not furious enough! She’s kind, good-hearted and oppressed – and now Harley’s the one oppressing her. Harley’s caught between a rock and a hard place: give up her amazing superpowers and free Tina and the other oppressed Lowlies, or keep bashing stuff with a super-hammer and having fun. What’s a girl to do?

While on a tropical vacation, Harley Quinn is kidnapped by two Female Furies from Apokolips-and they’re making her an offer she can’t refuse: join the Furies, get super powers and do anything she wants! It’s a sweet deal, and all Harley has to do in return is hunt down rogue Fury Petite Tina. The bad news: Petite Tina is anything but petite! Hope that hammer got an upgrade, Harley.

Review: Harley Quinn #45

Harley Quinn #45 finds our favorite Brooklyn bad ass on vacation from all the drama back home. Writer Sam Humphries starts his story off with a phone chat between Mamma Quinn and Harley that by the end of the issue proves that sometimes Mamma does know best. We get treated to a cute little one page of teeny tiny Harley proving that she’s always been a bad ass who likes to dish out a good smack down to those who deserve it. We then get a visit from a couple of Female Furies, sent by Granny Goodness, to rain on Harley’s parade, or so she thinks.

John Timms artwork is sleek and on point. As usual, the stylized bubble gum aesthetic works well with the off putting violence, dark story, and blood tinged mayhem. The colors Gabe Eltaeb uses are dark and surround the pop art colored Harley making sure we know the focus of the story. He varies the shade just enough so we know when it’s a flashback, a dream, or the current truth, a simple yet effective technique. It’s a really pretty comic and the artwork alone tells a very compelling, page turning story.

The issue as a whole is brilliantly written, perfectly drawn, expertly colored and doesn’t waste an inch of any panel with erroneous information, fluff, or unnecessary silliness. Everything flows into each other so perfectly that they were to have ended the comic a page before they did it would have been a complete story but I’m not at all mad that they left us with a little something to look forward to. Even the last page is perfect and pulls us further into the story. Humphries and his art crew do a great job at keeping the reader engaged and making sure that even without words you know this is a Harley story and a good one at that.
