Some thoughts about Batman: Prelude to the Wedding: Harley Quinn Vs. Joker #1
Harley is decided to end the Joker's plans to ruin Batman's wedding but what she doesn't know is that everything might be in his plans.
These tie-ins have come to an end and once again, Tim Seeley made the best from a bad situation.
The premise of this little story is something pretty typical and expected, is a classic Harley Vs. Joker encounter where she shows that she's over him and he doesn't have power over her anymore. That being said, Seeley still presents a few interesting ideas since this is not really a battle of strength but more of a battle of wits where both try to outsmart the other in classic Joker traps and twists which makes this whole situation more entertaining as a whole.
The characterization is also appropriate as well due that both show compelling moments that reflect their personality nicely while also exploring their dynamic in a pretty deep way demonstrating how strong their connection still is despite that both don't really love each other which is on-point considering everything that has happened between the two.
Sami Basri handles the art and I've been missing his work for a long time. The style is beautiful with a semi-cartoony look that creates really expressive characters and clear storytelling. I wish he would return to Power Girl.
Good read overall, sad we're back to King's run now.
