Harley Quinn #12 is DDelightful, puddin’

Harley Quinn #12 with Power Girl

The casually murderous Harley Quinn and the still-clueless yet good-to-the-core Power Girl are a match made in heaven/hell in Harley Quinn #12, from writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, and artists John Timms and Chad Hardin.

Comic Review: Forever Evil #7 worth the forever wait

Forever Evil #7 DC Comics cover by David Finch

And the drama has picked up, as the creepy clown Kazu and his band of tracksuit Draculas make their final play to get their hands on Clint’s apartment building.

Angela and Gamora Guardians of the Galaxy #10 cover Kevin Maguire

To quote Peter Quill, Guardians of the Galaxy #10 is a “spa day” for Gamora and Angela.

So how do the most dangerous woman in the universe and the most dangerous angel from another universe treat themselves on a “spa day?”

They kick alien ass.
