Harley Quinn: Night And Day by Karl Kesel, Terry Dodson and Pete Woods (graphic novel).

This second volume, ‘Harley Quinn: Night And Day’ by Karl Kesel, Terry Dodson and Pete Woods, covers the 2001 version in Harley Quinn # 8-13. The result of Harley being pursued by employees of Jack Hapi has given the idea to Gotham’s underworld that she has a price on her head and are determined to bring her down. Of course, that means war but, after being knifed in the arm, Harley resorts to a different tactic and disguise. I mean, no one is dressed like the original Batgirl anymore.

Of course, there are objections from the Bat-family leading to some hilarious encounters and a certain Bat doing his own investigations. This story is a roller-coaster and you should make sure you have a good hour to sit back and read in one go or you’ll be stopping and starting to fit it all in.

Oddly, this book ends on a Jimmy Olsen story, according to the indicia, is Harley Quinn: Our Worlds At War # 1, where ‘Superman’s Pal’ becomes ‘Harley Quinn’s Pal’ when he lands in what appears to be a different reality. Olsen effectively lies that he is due to marry Talia Head and gets Harley’s help to protect and get him to Metropolis.

I suspect this is more a matter of completest but you would think the ‘Our Worlds At War’ would fit in its own volume. Then again, maybe it’s a matter of filling pages before the final volume three.
