‘Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity #3’ (review)

Written by Kami Garcia
Art by Mico Suayan
and Jason Badower

Published by DC Comics

 

This is a really cool series that has a great take on Harley Quinn and the Joker. Kami Garcia brings a bit of a fresh take that is very interesting and not always successful.

Still, this book has amazing art and a lot works with the comic itself. Some stuff, however, just doesn’t.

The book starts off with the image of the Joker developing a picture. Then, we get to learn about a boy that is missing.

We hear a bit about the investigation behind it all. Harley Quinn is on the boy’s trail and she isn’t giving up.

Somehow, the Joker was involved with the boy’s disappearance and some truths start bubbling to the surface. It is a pretty intense beginning.

We then flash back and see the young boy. He is at school drawing and seems to be  a bit of an outcast. Harley continues her search for him in the present day. She stumbles across some roadblocks but she remains undeterred.

Things then get a bit strange.

Harley doesn’t stop investigating but some of the people she comes to meet are a bit weird and generally icky. This all leads to a revelation at the end that changes the game a bit.

The story is interesting enough but it does drag a bit. The art is good and a tad jolting. Suayan is very good but Mike Mayhem is no longer on the book and it is noticeable. Badower isn’t bad and does his best however.

Overall, it is a decent issue. I just wish it would hurry up.

RATING: B
