Digital Release Date December 23 2020

“The Morning After”

Harley is absolutely determined to give Boxing Day the over-the-top celebration it deserves, and small considerations like “knowing what Boxing Day is” aren’t going to get in her way. But when a low-down crook steals an entire orphanage’s worth of presents one day after Christmas, you’d better believe she’s gonna get in THAT guy’s way…

Review: Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red #17

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red #17

DC Comics has done an amazing job with Harley: Quinn: Black + White + Red. The digital comic series has been a wonderful idea and breathe of fresh air in many ways. Each issue has delivered a new set of voices to deliver their take on the popular character. A new round of holiday theme digital comics has been released with Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red #17 celebrating Boxing Day! Yes, Boxing Day!

A crime has been committed and packages have been stolen that were supposed to go to orphans. Harley and Poison Ivy team up to find out who took them and save Christmas Boxing Day for the kids.

Writer Liz Erickson delivers an entertaining story that’s fun and goofy in all of the right ways. Opening with a fantastic poem, my only criticism is I’d like to have seen that carry through the entire issue. I’ll admit, it was a bit of a letdown from the issue opening with two pages of Christmas poetry to then shift to normal dialogue and storytelling. There’s a decent amount of humor and action mixed into the comic but overall, it plays things a bit more straight than some previous releases. That’s not a bad thing at all. It just shows how varied Harley Quinn can be and it’s still the character and her crazy antics.

Tom Derenick provides the art with lettering by Josh Reed. It’s again a different style and take on Harley and Ivy keeping each release from the series unique. There’s a bit more “realism” in this version toning down some of the crazier elements we’ve seen from other digital releases. It sticks to the three color look which works really well and overall delivers a bit more of a crime/action comic vibe to the visuals.

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red #17 is another solid entry into the digital series. It delivers another style and voice to Harley and really show how varied the character can be in the look and tone of her adventures. It’s also the rare comic celebrating Boxing Day… there should be more.
