HARLEY QUINN: FUTURES END #1 Review

What will happen when Harley and Mistah J reunite? Read on to find out.

The official description from DC Comics:

Harley and The Joker make it legal at last! Follow the happy couple to their secret honeymoon spot, where it’s literally till death do they part!

Harley Quinn Futures End #1 3DHarley Quinn and the Joker. A relationship that has been full of love and hate over the years, and one that readers like myself can’t get enough of. Though the absence of Mistah J has allowed Harley time to blossom on her own, it is nice to finally see him enter the series, with this one-shot Futures End tale being the perfect opportunity to do so without affecting the series as a whole.

Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner have been giving us fun issue after another with Harley Quinn, as though there have been time were the plot itself hasn’t always past muster, the humour has always been there. I do however feel the duo have created their best script yet, harnessing the characteristics of both Harley and Joker perfectly, giving some great dialogue along the way. I also loved the entire tribal island setting, with God-King Jo-kaa and his soon to be wife Harley having a sticky outcome at the end of the book.

Chad Hardin as ever does a fabulous job on the artwork, with his detailed, fun art allowing this energetic tale to pop of the page. Between his dynamic layouts and quirky facial expressions, Hardin really manages to give an exciting edge to this strange tale, with the scenery adding atmosphere throughout. Hardin also gives us a mixture of the old and new Joker, going for a more classic look, whilst showing the scars of recent events. This ultimately works very well, matching the fun tone, whilst paying homage to established events. Rounding everything off we get wonderful colours from Alex Sinclair, with his vibrant palette and toning giving a sleek finish to Hardin’s art.

Harley Quinn: Futures End #1 is a fun tale that fans of Harley and the Joker will love, being as crazy and quirky as the two characters involved. Highly recommended.

I am a nerd, and nerds are cool. Why? Because they get to go to magical places, and enjoy wonderous stories that could never happen in real life. In particular I've always had a keen interested in comics, having accumulated a vast collection over the many years. I eventually decided to utilise my vast knowledge of comics as well as my many opinions and become a review. This is were UTF came in, as after spotting my blog reviews they offered me a spot on their elustrius review team. One that I have been more than joyous to fill and have loved being a part of ever since.
