Harley Quinn…and that OTHER Harley Quinn, well, they got a problem. Somehow, someway, one of these Harley Quinns rode off in baby Kal-El’s lil’ rocket ship before he could leave Krypton way back whenever that was. She also, just MAYBE, distracted Barry Allen before that lightning bolt could hit, and don’t get me started about all the other heroes. So now the whoooole DC Universe is all screwed up and these two HQs gotta figure out a way to put baby Supes back in the rocket before Krypton goes boom, Barry back in front of that lightning bolt, and stop that other Harley before…well, you get the picture. It’s going to be bananas.


Harley Quinn is back to cause more havoc in the multiverse today with the release of Multiversity: Harley Screws up the DCU #3. The latest issue of the Frank Tieri penned title is further pulling back the curtain to reveal and tease plenty more of what’s going on as the Harley’s attempt to rescue this messed up Earth from Starro.

Things are a little different this month. We kick off during a very familiar scene on Krypton as Jor-El and Lara attempt to send baby Kal to safety. It’s a moment we’re all intimately familiar with but not like this. It seem that Harley is losing the “time-nesia” and is beginning to remember what happened during her joint across the multiverse. The results of which are, of course, utter chaos.

As if Tieri wasn’t already having fun with this messed up Earth. Now he literally gets to go in to the origin stories of each of the Justice League and dream up ways for Harley to royally screw things up.

But Harley Screws up the DCU #3 isn’t doing this just for fun. Tieri is starting to tease more of what might be going on here. There are hints that Starro-Earth Harley is working with a mysterious figure. Could it be the benefactor who left our Harley the time-machine and caused all this chaos in the first place. I wouldn’t put it past Tieri to make the entire storyline a paradox. We might end up with infinite Harley’s caught in an infinite loop. But wouldn’t that be hilarious?

Much like the previous two issues, Tieri has a wonderful knack for pulling all of the comedy but without compromising on the heart which makes Harley a compelling character. The naivety as she learns of her own misfortune in killing off the Justice League is both hilarious and heartbreaking.

At this stage I’m genuinely falling in love with Logan Faerber’s artwork. In a parallel universe there’s a far more ordinary war to approach this book. Something with run-of-the-mill artwork which plays Harley Screws up the DCU far for more straight. But thanks to Faerber’s unique style our universe has a book with much more impact and I can’t fault it for that.


Harley Screws up the DCU is having some major fun this month. Twisting the legendary origins of classic DC characters and finding ways for Harley to screw them up. Tieri’s playful storytelling and Faerber’s kooky visual style continue to work together to create dynamite reading.
