Creating a relatable anti-heroine is a difficult task, but this frenetic origin story features a protagonist who is unpredictable, bighearted, naive, and a little bit dangerous. Writer Mariko Tamaki captures the characters' distinctive speech patterns and devises for Harley a story that's fast-paced, exciting, funny, and touching. Artist Steve Pugh's beautifully garish illustrations are perfect for this project, giving Harley room to strut her stuff in an environment that pulses with energy. Harley doesn't follow the straight and narrow, but her heart's in the right place. Readers will find some laughs, some danger, and a touch of poignancy in this vibrant graphic novel.
