Some thoughts about Harley Quinn #24
Trying to impress her parents with a new date might not go as well as she expected since criminals are going to interrupt dinner at the worst moment and that's the least of Harley's concerns.
Once again, this offered more content but with a price.
Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner deliver a new chapter about their ongoing story this time focusing on the relationship between Harley and her parents and it works solidly, the dynamic is charming and shows how despite how crazy all of them are, they still can get along like any family. Plus, there are other sub-plots being developed and I enjoy how the book transitions from story to story seamlessly.
That being said, while this issue had a lot of stuff going on, I feel like this was overwritten for that reason since it seems like the writers tried to pack too much info in certain scenes where the dialogue gets asphyxiating.
John Timms and Joseph Michael Linsner handle the artwork and they do a decent job during their respective scenes. I feel that Linsner is getting better in fact.
Paul Dini continues his second segment about Harley and Joker and is still funny in a classic cartoony kind of way. Bret Blevins' artwork is also pretty fitting for this.
Not bad but flawed, hope the next storyline is a bit better.
