Review – Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red

Credits:

Black, white, and now READ for the first time in print!

One of the crown jewels of the DC library is the inimitable, Harvey Award-nominated Batman Black & White–innovative short tales of the Caped Crusader, told purely in primal black and white. Unfortunately, now Harley Quinn wants in on the action…and she’s got her red pen, and some notes.

In Harley Quinn Black + White + Red, 19 tales of Gotham City’s craziest clown princess are presented in nothing but black, white, and bold splashes of red. See how Harley’s story unfolds in worlds beyond the DC Universe, in the alternate timelines of Batman: White Knight, Harleen, and the Harley Quinn animated series! Witness her darkest hours and her happiest moments! Wait, did she just…win an underground rap battle?!

An incredible array of award-winning talent from across the comics industry (like Stjepan Sejić, Sean Murphy & Katana Collins, Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti, and many more) have put their reputations in jeopardy to bring you these stories–so show a little gratitude, will ya? (And hey, not for nothin’, but they got nominated for a Harvey Award too. Anything you can do, Harley can do better, Bat-brain!

This volume collects Harley Quinn Black + White + Red #1-17, alongside two all-new, never-before-seen stories–from Veep writer David Mandel and superstar artist Adam Hughes, and from Harley’s co-creator, Paul Dini, with Batman: The Animated Series legend Kevin Altieri!”

The bestselling Batman: White Knight and Batman: Curse of the White Knight series written and illustrated by Sean Murphy spin off on a new take written by international bestselling author (and Murphy’s wife) Katana Collins, starring the one and only Harley Quinn.

Batman: White Knight Presents: Harley Quinn takes place two years after Batman: Curse of the White Knight. Azrael has wiped out criminals in Gotham, Jack Napier (formerly The Joker) is dead, Bruce Wayne (Batman) is in prison, and Harley Quinn is adjusting to life as a single mother, raising the twins she had with Jack.

But as new villains arise, Harley is forced to dance with madness once again and confront her own past with The Joker and Batman while helping the Gotham City police and an eager young FBI agent uncover the truth behind a series of gruesome murders.

This collection also features a chapter from Harley Quinn’s newest digital first series, Harley Quinn Black + White + Red, told in a traditional black-and-white format with the color red uniquely shaping Harley Quinn’s story.
