Harley Quinn #70

Harley Quinn #70 kicks off a new arc with a fun issue that will turn serious in its final pages. The issue catches up with Harley Quinn working as a wrestler, tag-teaming with her roommate Alicia. The concept provides several amusing panels to open the issue, joining the pair in mid-match against Rosie from Demolition Team and Crux. There's also some nice moments of Harley at home interacting with Alicia and her daughter.

Trouble comes a calling when the promoter wants the pair to take on each other in the ring, and for Alicia to take a dive at the appropriate time allowing him to clean-up by betting heavy against the favorite. Harley takes some convincing, but despite going with the flow things don't turn out well for Harley's roommate.

Before the comic gets serious, there's a ton of fun to be had both in and out of the ring including a surprise cameo by none other than Booster Gold who proves he kills at karaoke and, at times, provide some good advice. Worth a look.
