    I don't know why I keep thinking if a comic has a girl as the main character, it won't be sexist. You'd think I'd have learned by now. I don't know why I keep thinking if a comic has a girl as the main character, it won't be sexist. You'd think I'd have learned by now.

    A bit of a mix bag for me! So This book saw Harley in her own solo series, a few years before The New 52, back in the days when she wore her jester outfit and not her new designs(Which I like either way!). So this is 7 issues, each kind of being its own self contained story, and that's kind of where it falls flat, the stories are either hit or miss for the most part! Their is one pretty cool issue where she has a slumber party and invites a variety of different female villains such as: Catwoman A bit of a mix bag for me!

Artwork is another mix bag, on the one hand, Harley looks like something out of Jim Lee's sketch book as well as some other characters, but then their other characters who just look choppy. In the end, while their were some good moments, overall this was okay at best!

    This seems like it was a Batman comic that was supposed to be geared towards girls (because, you know, there's a ton of female characters in it so of course girls will like it or some sort of bullshit explanation like that) and it hit all the teenage cliche's it could. This comic is bad. Simply bad.

This comic is bad. Simply bad. Everything that makes Harley Quinn an interesting and intriguing character is somehow just not talked about and instead, it is all about her going and getting together with all the "girls" and having some parties and gossiping in between maybe fighting a villain or two. I tried to find a redeeming trait of this comic but lets just face it, Karl Kesel failed at writing an interesting plot line and holding a voice of a character. This seemed more like a ploy to entice women into the comic genera and if anything, it's keeping them away. Have faith that your readers have a little more intelligence, comic book author. A good story is a good story. Male or female, a reader is going to understand that.

Never mind she had the police on her heels before that, she knows how to keep on making crazy decisions hahaha With a good plot and a good drawing, we see lots of old faces, as there is an array of people to accompany Harley, such as Ivy, Catwoman, Oracle, Bruce Wayne, Two Face, Barda, The Riddler... This is a fun read, I really recommend it :)

    Harley Quinn: Preludes and Knock Knock Jokes by Karl Kesel, is the story of everyone's favorite sidekick, Harley Quinn, and how she is trying to make a name for herself as an actual supervillain, rather than just a lackey to the Joker. With the hilarity of a breakup between the world's most famous comic book duo, and a slumber party for the ages, this was a clever story with insight to a character that may not have been realized before.

    This is my favorite Harley story to date. From hanging with the Joker to build a rollercoaster to having a slumber party with the baddest girls in Gotham, this comic was everything I could want and expect from a Harley comic.

I loved this and can't wait until I can get my hands on volume 2!

    I was hoping for more Harley/Ivy, but I guess I got my share in the beginning... It was nice to see some of Harley's vulnerability in the beginning, but as it went on it got more action-focused which isn't always my cup of tea. And I know she used to do gymnastics, but some of those poses are a bit too much (ass). Hoping for more Poison Ivy in the next one!

    I really don't know how to feel about this book. I love the character of Harley Quinn but I found the stories lacking. The artwork however was good throughout and I did like how everything looked and the use of colour. Overall though, I'm kind of disappointed. I really don't know how to feel about this book.

    4 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Despite Harley being my second favorite DC character her comics are so hit or miss. This one was good though. I liked the artwork a lot and Harley's characterization was great. She wasn't too ditzy or stupid as most comics tend to make her which was great. She was loveable and slightly ditzy and just as funny. While I enjoyed this entire comic as a whole my favorite part was the party that Harley threw with the other female villains. It was hilarious and such 4 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Despite Harley being my second favorite DC character her comics are so hit or miss. This one was good though.

    I really wanted to like this after seeing it be held in such high regard, especially against the likes of New 52 and Rebirth, but I just... didn't really. Everything after the first issue just felt like meaningless filler, and while there was some backstory built for Harley in between, the plots of the issues were so plain I've already forgotten what most of them were about. While I haven't read a good Harley comic I've enjoyed some runs just for being fun, but this just didn't do it for me.

Much like All-Star Superman, if this is the best Harley gets then I really don't have high hopes.

    2.5 stars A lot of wasted potential here (Harley leaving Joker, hanging out with the girls... only to hire a bunch of guys and do pointless stuff with them??) and - to be perfectly honest - it's Ivy who's the real star here but it's not not entertaining and some pages are really a pleasure to look at. 2.5 stars A lot of wasted potential here (Harley leaving Joker, hanging out with the girls... only to hire a bunch of guys and do pointless stuff with them??) and - to be perfectly honest - it's Ivy who's the real star here but it's not not entertaining and some pages are really a pleasure to look at.

    So I've got a bad habit of adding things to my currently reading list and never taking them down and writing reviews. I love all the old Harley Quinn comics, and it is high time I wrote this review. Suicide Squad had Harley all sexed up, and there is no denying that's an aspect of her personality. She slept her way through university psychiatry and defines herself by her (impression of her) relationship to the Joker. Even still, there is something more underneath the clownish cat suit that speaks So I've got a bad habit of adding things to my currently reading list and never taking them down and writing reviews.

She slept her way through university psychiatry and defines herself by her (impression of her) relationship to the Joker. Even still, there is something more underneath the clownish cat suit that speaks to the fundamental ego of someone who perpetually clings to bad relationships. While the comics are as goofy and full of POW! KABANG! SPLAT! as most superhero monthlies, but it feels like it fits Harley Quinn's perspective of the world, and that there is another layer of psychological reality here. I really love Lewis, and Harley's henchmen as a whole. It is neat to see Harely on her own and in a position of power and respect that has nothing to do with her sexuality. Poison Ivy is a great foil to Harley Quinn, and the comics know to use her sparingly and make her appearances count. I'm probably reading way too much into these comics, but I really appreciate the picture they paint, even if it is under a heavy coating of traditional superhero action and the writers are going for most puns per line of dialogue.

    Just as the blurb promises- 'It's a love story gone horribly, horribly wrong'. I got this one as I told myself I can't do Batman all the time, I should let in some more characters. And boy should I have saved myself for the Batman Metal v2 that was on its way at that time. I decided to start with the negatives as they really outweight the positives on this one: - HQ exsists so she can love Joker. That's her personality.

I got this one as I told myself I can't do Batman all the time, I should let in some more characters. And boy should I have saved myself for the Batman Metal v2 that was on its way at that time. I decided to start with the negatives as they really outweight the positives on this one: - HQ exsists so she can love Joker. That's her personality. Shouldn't she be interesting to watch roam around without her toxic partner? All she really does is act like an idiot and have men do things for her. Did I mention she just flexes her assets all the time? Because she does. There are some inconsistencies in her background as well- I am pretty sure somebody mentioned she has basically slept her way throught the degree, but other times she is again that GIANT BRAIN GIRL. ( Edit: I have done some digging and guess what, it's right there in Mad Love" -Harley's original, definitive origin story, written by the creators of the character, Dini/Timm) Also worth mentioning she tries to sneak around but is dummy thicc... Ok, I guess at this point you know what I am trying to say here. Onwards to the next point! - The art is awful. I understand- to each their own, but should it be really bouncing around from "standart comic style' to 'chunky figures that resembles something' without warning back and forth? It is beyond saving, makes the whole thing even harder to read. - The story involves a lot of other heroines, which is good becasue together they can make more seductive poses, hurray! In my short-ish run with comics boy, have I noticed that DC has problem with female characters, but this is just really unnecessary. It could have been a really cool "Girls just want to have fun but also girls rule the world' kind of a tale. Yet it wasn't. Shame. - This edition contains 7 episodes loosely conected to one another and that's where it looses me (lol are the terrible puns contagious or what? I will mention the jokes in their own point, worry not). They are really, really,really uneven. As mentioned, the art sinks some of them further. I think the title should go from ' Preludes and knock-knock jokes to 'Preludes to far better stories and things that are supposed to be jokes but don't deserve to be a knock-knock jokes, really'. Rolls of the tongue just right, I know. There were some really interesting concepts left to rot- like that one guy who fell for our girl and started acting just like she does for mr.J. - The jokes. My oh my. Every single dialouge has to contain a " GOT EEEEEEEM' moment so painful, that it would tire a 9 y.o having a diss. I tried to insert an example but the only frame I could find was long gone from tumblr, and that says a lot. Or maybe the joke was on us all along, you decide. Positives- I really tried to hold on to some that I had in my mind, but having started writing this review they just vanished. I guess "what doesn't kill us make us stronger'? At least I tried something different? Now I know that sticking to heros instead of heroines is a smart decision and a good money saving tip. I am going to leave Harley right where she belongs- on weird fetishized arts and on craigslist, because there's no way I am keeping this one. Btw. I suppose you could argue that this is a deep story, as Harley is just a lost soul, who tries to win over somebody she loves by degrating herself and doing everything for that person, but is this all that deep or is it simply dumb? Long live the Quinn with Joker, because on her own, she really can't do it.

    Preludes and Knock-Knock Jokes is a welcome addition to the Harley Quinn oeuvre. I like when writers give her a story where she has a life away from the Joker. In this collection Joker is locked up for most of the stories, so Quinn has a chance to show what she can do all by herself. In one story she decides to become a crime boss. In another she throws a party for all the bad girls of the crime circuit.

In another she throws a party for all the bad girls of the crime circuit. What I liked about her character in Preludes is that it differentiates her from the other criminals in the sense that she really has no agenda. Most everyone else is seeking revenge or riches, but Harley Quinn doesn’t give a fuck about anything except having fun and maintaining an unhealthy obsession with the Joker. She’s impulsive, rambunctious, and sarcastic, but sometimes these feel like a front that disguises an evil genius that lurks beneath all her bravado, as if she’s playing a character that she’s always wanted to be. The stories in this collection highlight this quite well without feeling too ridiculous. It seems like every book about Harley Quinn that I read tries to reinvent her past. Or tweak it, at least. To be fair, her past has always been a little flimsy. While I like the idea of a psychiatrist falling in love with a psycho obsessed with causing havoc and destruction, when the comics try to show it, it rarely sells me. Mad Love came the closest because it hinted at the Joker’s seductive charm rather than trying to play out the scene. The only major misstep that Preludes makes is a brief mention of Harley drinking a potion made by Poison Ivy that would give her super strength. That part felt like a bad excuse for how she is able to knock out guys three times her size. I look forward to future Harley Quinn adventures. I think there’s a lot of potential for her character that hasn’t been explored in the stories I’ve read so far.

    Erm well this was disappointing. I think this is the first graphic novel I have struggled to finish. I normally find the artwork to be the savior of a bad story line and although the art in this is admirable the story was just so dire nothing could rescue it. The dialogue was all over the place and fragmented to the extent that I was a bit unsure of what was happening at the best of times.

It was supposed to be a Harley Quinn story but they crammed just about every DC character they could think of into it and failed to make Quinn a likable character. I get that she's a bad guy but if they have their own 'one shot'comic I expect there to be some understanding of the characters actions and there isn't. There is some kind of investigation into her motives that in the end isn't even resolved which is ridiculously disappointing. There was a chance here to introduce a genuine hard ass female villain into the Gotham fold but instead they made her a weepy womb face, heartbroken over her male counterpart the Joker who is portrayed as a superior villain even in her freaking comic! Why even make a Harley Quinn one shot? I don't get what the intention of this comic even was? Boo Hiss! I am so over this sexism shit!

    let's face it: this is a character who was defined by her relationship to the joker. you take mister j out of the equation and really, what do you have left? gymnast dingbat in a silly clown suit. terry dodson is the best artist for this series. the figures, the facial expressions, and the environments are all larger than life and let's face it, harley belongs in the animated series from whence she came. kesel manages fun storylines, but overall it's just too goofy ~ she's not credible in this wo let's face it: this is a character who was defined by her relationship to the joker. you take mister j out of the equation and really, what do you have left? gymnast dingbat in a silly clown suit. terry dodson is the best artist for this series. the figures, the facial expressions, and the environments are all larger than life and let's face it, harley belongs in the animated series from whence she came. kesel manages fun storylines, but overall it's just too goofy ~ she's not credible in this world; she's a walking toon. i would really like to see an honest crack at making her work in comic book gotham (i'm just pretending the suicide squad thing isn't happening right now). while this outing is good for a few laughs, in the end it's just cheap, weirdly oversexualized, and if it's going to be silly, it lacks the appealing punch & judy horror/hilarity of her and the joker trading punches ~ which is what made her a hot commodity in the first place.

    Oh Harley Quinn I do find you hilarious. I really do like seeing her without the Joker, because with him she really is just a lackey. I really love the artwork in this book and I definitely prefer Harley in her classic outfit. The funniest part is when she teams up with Two-Face, she also says some really important things about ladies and consent when Two-Face goes after Anya/Dana. The only other thing I've read with Harley on her own was the current New 52 Suicide Squad, and the way they write Oh Harley Quinn I do find you hilarious.

I wish someone would've told me to read this one first so I could get to know the better version of her character in this one. The only thing I didn't really like was how the two wrestler girls were written at the slumber party. Their characterization seemed like it'd only be made up in some guy's head, it could never exist. I'll definitely be picking up the next one I want to see how Harley evades capture from Happy Jack's team again.

    5.0 I have never in my life read a Harley Quinn comic until now. I've always been a fan of comics, but usually when I need to learn a huge arc (such as A Death in the Family), I look up videos online instead of reading the comics. I've also always been a huge fan of Harley Quinn, ever since I sat down and watched the animated series. Harley is a delightful character in this comic, and makes it an easy and quick read.

    I didn't realize how much I was going to like Harley Quinn! This graphic novel starts off with Harley breaking out Mister J and the escapades only escalate from there, in the first book. I loved the brutality of both, Harley and Joker, and the disintegration of the relationship. The rest of the stories gave more insight into Harley, yet the continuing story did taper. She is cruel and really doesn't care about the Havok she reaps. Humor was well-paced, but some characters felt out of place. Riddle I didn't realize how much I was going to like Harley Quinn!

And, my heart goes out to her and her doomed life-like.

    So the old continuity Harley, bcak in the days when she was just learning to be independent. I do like these books even if they changed some major Harley points (like her backstory and how she and The Joker got aquainted) I still think that they did a good job expressing who Harley is as a character and of course keeping the story light and funny to stick with the Harley vibe.

    Funny and light-hearted Harley Quinn with more of the gags than manic episodes. Nice to see her go out on her own and seeing her with her own henchmen was entertaining.

Feigning illness, the Clown Prince of Crime manipulates his gal pal Harley Quinn to do his dirty work for him. The Joker really just wants to get her out of his hair. But with this new batch of responsibility, Harley starts to feel independent and gains a new sense of worth-while. Thus starts the beginning of the end of the relationship of Harley and her Puddin'. I was very excited about finding the volumes that reprint this entire first series devoted to the Joker's girlfriend. I've been a Harley Quinn fan since day one and I really want any and everything of her's in terms of comic books and trades. These are among some of the most difficult and not cheapest ones to find. The Final Night's Karl Kesel does a really excellent job here. I thought only Paul Dini was able to write definitive Harley Quinn stories. I can now add Kesel to that list. As for the art, I was really impressed with the work by husband and wife team Terry and Rachel Dodson. They add a very soft ink whimsy to Harley. It's a stark contrast to Bruce Timm's very sharp curves used in Batman: The Animated Series. Yet, the Dodson touch works! Volume One was a wild ride. I can't wait to see where volume 2 goes next!
