The main story has the detective guy asking Harley and her gang to look into why homeless people are missing in New York and the dialogue was very funny. It seems that this series is a hit or a miss for me and this issue was a hit. The back up story by Paul Dini and art by Brett Blevins doing his best Bruce Timm – it reminded me so much of the old Batman: the Animated Series from when I was a kid it brought a smile to my face.

The main story of the cannibals eating all of the Homeless is so sad but somehow they manage to write it all off as a dark comedy while not being offensive. That takes balls. The back up was filled with more Batman: The Animated Series style Harley and Joker goodness. This is a fun book to read again.

Harley and her gang defeat the cannibals in a very amusing conclusion to this arc. I like the idea of Harley becoming a secret hero for New York I think.  The back up was fun too. The Joker is so mean to Harley and she is always clueless about it.

Harley’s relationship with Chief Spoonsdale is interesting. I am growing to like the guy. There was some hilarious moments in this issue including Harley’s friend asking her if they have ever have one day without madness and Harley says maybe 2 years ago and Harley calling the girl from the future “fake bat-bitch” and calling Batman “the Bathole.” The back up was more fun with Harley and Joker as they check into a motel and the Joker almost tells her he loves her before she falls asleep…but I have a feeling he has something up his sleeve.

We learn Red Tool’s true origin as coming from an alternate future in this issue, the same alternate future the Davani Kage lady comes from. Apparently he was sent back to kill Harley too and realized Harley never killed Batman in this timeline. Or at least that is what he tells Davani…he could be making it all up. The back up was amusing as always.

In the main story Harley’s parents finally come to visit and she manages to convince them for now that she leads a normal life although I wonder how much they know about her villainous identity at all. The back up was a lot of fun as Harley hires the Carpenter to build her new hideout with the Joker.
