Harley Quinn #33

I'll admit picking up this comic only for the opening few pages which take place on Earth-26, the reimagined anthropomorphic Earth-C of my childhood, featuring the greatest heroes in the Multiverse. Our story involves someone targeting Harleys across all dimensions which leads to the death of Harely on Earth-26 and her girlfriend Python Ivy. Sure, the fact that when relaunching him no one bothered to see that Captain Carrot was a brown bunny rather than a white rabbit still sticks in my craw a bit, but the issue does give us his classic alter-ego in artist Rodney Rabbit.

After being warned by freelance multiversal private investigator Lux Kirby, the rest of the issue deals with Harley attempting awkwardly to keep Ivy out of danger and being investigating who might want her dead leading her to the Library of War and an attack by corrupted Brother Eye minions. While my interest waned the further I got away from those first few panels, the comic does present a concept which could lead Harley into unexpected places.

[DC, $4.99]
