Harley Quinn/Gossamer #1
Words by: Amanda Conner & Jimmy Palmiotti

Harley Quinn gets matched up with Gossamer or the red hairy monster from the Bugs Bunny shorts. So how does Harley react to a monster that doesn’t talk? In the most Harley way possible.
From the get-go, the comic starts off with an actual hurricane and ends with questionable Batman and Joker jokes. The issue is all over the place and it’s enjoyable like all the other DC/Looney Tunes crossovers. There are even throwbacks to the Bugs Bunny shorts.
The big thing about this issue is the return of Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti. After being away from creating anything for a while, they are still able to nail the jokes and include the Bugs references seamlessly. It isn’t their best Harley work but it’s great to see them still understand Harley.
Pier Brito handles the chaos that is a Harley book. He is able to draw two stories in some of the panels which are impressive and doesn’t distract from the overall stories. This helps give Gossamer more personality when Harley is center stage.
Harley Quinn/Gossamer #1 is what you expect from a Harley Quinn book. The best part was that she was paired with Gossamer who not too many people know or remember. There were a few issues with the story and the art but they do not distract from the overall story.
