Harley Quinn: Black + White + Redder #4

The anthology series featuring Harley Quinn in black, white, and red continues with three more tales. "Harley Quinn and the Seven Sidekicks" is a wacky, if melancholy, tale of Harley Quinn getting her own crew in the form of seven juvenile delinquents who provide some momentary fun for our protagonist but eventually leave her on her own once more.

"A Voice Traveling" is a little more fun, and far more vengeful, featuring Harley running into an old colleague who points her in the direction of a college bully now working as a low-rent gang leader in Gotham City. It's easily the best of the bunch and most notable for Harley's line about her support animals. Finally, "Golden Years" gives us a Harley as a senior citizen who springs to action where alien shenanigans make it impossible for her to watch her favorite soap opera. The comic your average anthology issue, but given the exceptional level of stories in the previous few issues, the series feels like its returning to the mean.

[DC, $4.99]
