Review: I had high hopes for this one, I mean what could go wrong getting Harley and The Joker back together. Yeah, we'll get to that... Anyway this starts off with Harley and Ivy going to the Bahamas and staying at a nudist colony. I don't know what the purpose of this was other than to let Harley and Ivy lez out nekkid. Yet she was also lamenting Mason, remember him her new boyfriend that Bat's put in Witness protection way back when. I have mixed feeling about this.
There's other nutso stuff that happens before we get to the very miss leading, meat of the volume. Here's where I thought it was going to get good. The Joker is back, and... wait what? Wants to change his ways? Um yeah something's fishy here. Not only that but he let's Red Tool beat the crap out of him with only a few jokes. I mean come on, Red Tool is a walking joke. Ugh! Really folks, there is a neat twist but still.
The last part of this book is nothing but Christmas themed filler in my opinion. I'll admit that I skimmed over it, completely uninterested in seeing Harley beat the crap out of poor mall elves.
Overall another disappointing installment. Here's hoping it'll get better.
