Some thoughts about Harley Quinn #17
Several homeless people are disappearing over the town and is up to Harley to see what's happening. However, this could put her life at risk.
Once again, I appreciate all the different plot-points.
Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner bring a new chapter where they continue to focus on the different stories they're developing. There's the main plot of Harley facing a gang of cannibals who are hunting people around the city which includes several interesting moments of characterization including the classic Harley moments where she implements her background as a psychiatrist. Plus, the sub-plot about Harley Sinn continues to progress nicely.
John Timm's artwork is perfect here once again by being able to depict the character and violent moments perfectly.
Not only that but this marks the beginning of Paul Dini's side story where he focuses on the early days of Harley and the Joker where he shows how their relationship could have been good at one point but if you know something about them is that this can't end well. The story could have had more content though.
Bret Blevins handles the artwork here and is pretty reminiscent of Bruce Tiimm's artwork thanks to his cartoony style.
Solid overall, hope the next one offers more of everything.
