Review by Kendra Hale

Multiversity: Harley Screws Up The DCU #2 is finally here! When last we left her, the Mistress of Mayhem had just returned  to Coney Island. After collecting her mail via Red Tool, Harley discovered that she’d been left a warehouse full of old magician’s show staples, including a “Wayback Machine”.

Upon use of the mechanism, she found herself in another universe ruled by Starro… and was rescued by another Harley Quinn. Her rescuer let her know this was all happening because of her choice to use the machine, which caused the heroes to *poof* out of existence in this universe.

There’s so much goodness in this issue, let’s jump right in… the water’s fine!

Sea Star CPAP

The Harley from this Starro infested world opens the issue with how the invasion happened and snippets of how she escaped the monster’s grasp. Both of them realize they each have a mysterious benefactor who has led them to not only meet but seems to be helping the pair fix what’s gone wrong. As they both soon discover, the sewers aren’t safe and Starro’s bent on stopping them from trying to fix the timelines.

Another thing is to fix the superheroes who helped to prevent the invasion from ever being successful, but there are no friends among a hive mind, so not everything’s as it seems. Starro’s being a smart cookie and trying to predict all pathways to success. Of course, this is Harley Quinn’s we’re talking about here… surely two of them can take on whatever happens… right?

Booster Mold

Frank Tieri, Logan Faerber, and Ferran Delgado have given us a very intriguing comic book. Not only is there humor and camp, we also get treated to some amazing sequential art scenes, and probably one of the most gruesome tributes to the Alien movies, that I was not prepared for, but LOVED!  There were so many moments that were genuinely just so enjoyable, and they spanned the entire book.

We get no bonus story this go time… but the covers! Let me just say that seeing Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti team up for a wicked cover always brings a smile to my face. We also get variants from Vasco Georgiev as well as John McCrea and Mike Spicer. Each of these covers is so great in their own right, from the high camp of two Harleys fighting the Starro babies, to the beautiful vortex of DCU references, as Harley floats in the center. My favorite is, hands down, the McCrea and Spicer Cover that has Harley taking down Flash with soap attached to his feet and Superman with 10 tons of Kryptonite.


Multiversity: Harley Screws Up The DCU #2 is pure fun. I cannot wait to see what remains to be uncovered. Frank Tieri, consider your promise of greatness fulfilled.  I will gladly await the next issue from you and the team with patience.  From the wonderful lettering choices, the unique art style that captures the eye, to the guilty free fun writing… pick this series up!
