This one I was a little hesitant on, because I really wasn’t a big fan of Erica Henderson’s Squirrel Girl and other Marvel works, but art wise, it was really solid. Between this and the OGN she had come out a few months ago “Dracula Motherf**ker”, I feel like she’s at her best with more realistic/moody pieces than straight comedy.
Writing wise? It’s…okay. I dunno, it’s Harley doing something grandiose and things turn on fire and Ivy is torn between hugging Harley and strangling her. It just feels like it’s doing a lot of things I’ve seen before, and not in a way that feels all that different.
This was a fun story. The idea of this crazy subway train at night is one of those things that epitomizes I think what makes superhero comics great, where they can take some real world concept and twist it to the point where it feels more ridiculous and yet more true. Also, I’m fairly certain this is taken from Grant Morrison’s “Seven Soldiers: Manhattan Guardian,” where he has to go through a group of subway pirates, but it could just be a coincidence.
Also, the art is STUNNING. I’ve loved Marguarte Sauvage’s work since I first saw it in DC’s Bombshells, and it’s cool to see her doing a version of Harley again.
Joe Quinones’s mix of Harley & Ivy meets Indiana Jones was a lot of fun. The writing was surprisingly solid for someone who from what I understand hasn’t written much before, and the art is just…superb. I love the redesigns that Quinones gives for the characters, especially Ivy and Batman, who seems like a combination of '89 and BTAS.
LOVED this story. I never heard of Dani Strips until reading this story and I love her style, it reminds me a bit of Sin City era Frank Miller with it’s use of negative space and black and white coloring. The story was also really solidly done – more gritty and gringier than some of the other stories, but works very well for Harley.
