“101 Ways to Die,” by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, and artist Joseph Michael Linsner, definitely makes you rethink about heading down to Coney Island one last time before the summer is officially over. No one wants to eat alien chunk hotdogs. It also makes you one hundred percent certain that you do not want to be on Harley's bad side. Throughout the comic, it captures Harley's personality perfectly: between the way she just walks right in to the place and demands to speak to the people in charge, to how she takes down the robot, to the way she gets into the Red Horse Nightclub, to how before she leaves she takes a bottle of Bacon flavored vodka.
Harley is someone you want to have on your side because she has no fear. She's the first one to stand up to the robot; instead of running outside like Hari did, she defeats the men at the Red Horse Nightclub without hesitation. Of course, it wouldn't be a Harley comic if there weren’t humor in this comic. That's one of my favorite things about Harley: the humor that she brings to a comic. This comic ends where I'm not sure where the next one is going to start. Harley gets her main goal accomplished at the end, so maybe it will be her and Ivy on that Bahamas trip she was talking about. We all know that superheroes (and supervillains) can't take a vacation in peace!
The Verdict: This comic is definitely a Harley comic. There's action, there's humor, and there's Harley being a badass. I'm curious to see where the next issue takes us and what's next for Harley.
