Some thoughts about Harley Quinn #18

Harley's battle against the cannibals continues.

The Mayor is ecstaticnow that he has learned that the gang he hired is getting rid of all of his problems, including Harley but Red Tool might have other opinions about it.

Another issue, another fun entry.

Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner deliver a new chapter where they focus on a couple of segments, mainly the one in the present about Harley's encounter with the gang of cannibals. The humour continues to be on-point but some characters like the Mayor stopped being characters and have become more of parodies, this time making fun of Donald Trump obviously. Still, the story is well-paced and the second segment about the future continues to progress satisfactorily.

John Timms and Joseph Michael Linsner handle the artwork and they both do a pretty job during their respective segments.

There's once again another story written by Paul Dini suited in the past focusing on the relationship between Harley and the Joker which is pretty fun and on-point as you would expect from the writer. Bret Blevins' cartoony artstyle is also quite fitting for the story.

Entertaining overall but is a shame that the main story has become shorter due to the addition of the second section.
