Harley Quinn And Power Girl by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, Stephane Roux and Paul Mounts (graphic novel review).

Looking around I came across ‘Harley Quinn And Power Girl’, based on the 6 part mini-series of the same name from 2015. Basically, this is a tangent series to when Sportsmaster and Clock King attacked the cruiser in the fourth ‘Harley Quinn graphic novel, ‘Surprise, Surprise’ or # 12 if you read the mini-series and briefly Power Girl and Harley Quinn were gone for a panel. I went back and looked at the mag and damned if I can’t see it, although it is shown here.

Actually, they were away a lot longer than that as they were teleported a long way away and needed to find another teleporter ring to return to Earth. Into this mix they find Vartox has been captured by Oreth Odeox but his and Power Girl’s children, you remember me mentioning that unusual tryst are now adult and equally confusing are also trying to help.

They have to sort out the planet Valerian’s problems, a still besotted Vartox’ infatuation with Power Girl and Harley has to use some energy gloves to create her favourite hammer.

Oddly, this time artist Amanda Conner is working solely as writer with Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Grey and artist Stephane Roux doing the art chores but you can hardly see the difference in their art styles.

It’s quite fun romp although you do have to wonder how there is a link to the Suicide Squad from all of these tales.
