#BookReview Harley Quinn, Volume 3: Red Meat by Amanda Conner @DCComics

Harley Quinn, Volume 3: Red Meat by Jimmy Palmiotti
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

The Suicide Squad's deadliest member continues to wreak havoc all across the DC Universe in the latest installment of her best-selling graphic novel series in HARLEY QUINN VOL. 3!

Harley's managed to carve out a kind of peace with New York's corrupt mayor...but once she gets wind of his plans for the city's homeless population, the deal is most definitely off! She'll have to take the fight to City Hall--but who will be her ally in her most desperate hour?

The writing team of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti join artists Chad Hardin and John Timms in their New York Times best-selling run with HARLEY QUINN VOL. 3! Collects HARLEY QUINN #14-16 Full issues, and issues #17-21 (main story only).


**********

Harley Quinn is BACK! And, this time she has to deal with a megalomaniac alien that she set free after opening a door underground (see the previous volume), cannibals, a bat-fan from the future, and old foe, and her parents! Well, the parents not so much, she was busy trying to keep bat-fan off her back.

Anyway, it's a lot of things going on in this graphic novel. I was a bit doubtful at the beginning when the alien got free, but the story turned out to be better than I had anticipated. Still, I found this volume to just above-average, with now and then some funny bits. The action sequences were good and as usual is my favorite crazy chick wreaking havoc wherever she goes. On the plus side is the art straight through lovely! Favorite part? Hm, nothing really comes to mind, no story that really shined more than the others. Perhaps Red Tools part in the bat-fan story, it was a good twist.





I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through NetGalley for an honest review!
