Publication Date:  August 8, 2017

Format:  Ebook



Goodreads Synopsis: 
It's the sensational debut of a massive team-up series in which Harley meets (and almost certainly annoys) the greatest heroes and villains of the DC Universe! Harley is pairing up with the greatest heroes of all time, featuring adventures with Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and more! But can she keep up with superheroes of this caliber?
Celebrated Harley co-writers Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti take on this monumental series, spinning off of the best-selling HARLEY QUINN series. Collects HARLEY'S LITTLE BLACK BOOK #1-6.

I missed the first few issues of this series in comic form so I figured I would just wait for the graphic novel to come out and the New 52 was slowly getting more eh in my opinion. I still read them but they weren't my favorite. This volume collects issues 1-6 of the little black book series and they are all one-offs so I could have jumped in wherever but I didn't realize that.

The series is like diary entries by Harley, many are in flashback format and they all can be read in any order. They each feature a different guest appearance - like Wonder Woman and the Green Lantern, and they are don't but a variety of artists.

I think my favorite issue in the bunch was the Green Lantern one, Harley is her evil self again, not trying to save anything, and the lantern rings are a very cool addition for a Harley Quinn comic. The one I liked the least was the last one and the story wasn't bad, but I sadly did not enjoy the artist on that issue.

Many of these issues had a lot of sexual innuendo  and some had it right out there, so these are definitely adult comics/ graphic novels. I felt like there was actually more sex themes than violence - it was not what I expected, but don't get me wrong there was still a lot of violence as well. 

I am happy to have read the series to this point, I think if you enjoyed the New 52 Harley series and enjoy guests popping in, these are issues for you.
