Following Volume 1, in which Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti established the New 52 solo version of Harley, Harley Quinn Vol. 2: Power Outage offers more of her adventures. Conner and Palmiotti continue to portray her as a Deadpool-esque character, with frequent asides to other media and even her own writers. The longest stories in this volume focus on Harley's team-up with Power Girl and her metatextual visit to San Diego Comic Con International. The "Futures End" story, set five years after the current events of the comic, feels out-of-place, but it was part of a larger concept running through all the DC titles at the time. The "Secret Origins" story works well to rectify certain canonical issues, though it pales in comparison to Paul Dini's Batman: Harley Quinn special. While this particular series lacks some of the depth of the pre-New 52 run under Karl Kesel or Dini's Gotham City Sirens series, it continues to entertain and fans of the character can will find plenty to like.

The start of this TPB is the continuation of the skating team stuff. And it’s just as crazy (crazy good) as the stuff from the previous TPB.

Then we had Harley’s Future’s End story which was cool, and disturbing, and had some surprises in it. And then there was the main story. Power Girl crashes from space, nearly braining Harley to death. And when PG wakes up she does so without her memory, and Harley takes advantage of it in some quite hilarious ways. It was cool to see how the writers wrote these two ladies and how they interacted (not to mention Harley practically holding her breath every time PG got bumped on the head).

There was also a story where Harley and her friends/tenants went to the SDCC, and it was hilarious too, with lots of inside-ish hilarity and much ragging on DC authors and creators.

It was a fun TPB, and while it’s still not quite as awesome as Marvel’s Deadpool, it’s almost there with its off the hook zanniness.

I got this advanced galley through Netgalley on behalf of DC Entertainment. ( )

I continue to be let down by the current series run. Harley Quinn seems to be a dim reminder of what she once was and what she might have been. There's been too much time and energy under various artists/writers/series, etc, though. So this is the Quinn I'm stuck with.

Decent enough set of stories. The Mason one seemed to go nowhere. Not sure what that was about. The Joker one was kinda boring. The comic con one had a few decent moments. The Power Girl one though was good enough to keep the overall rating for the collection up at 3 stars.

Well, that's that. Another collection done. I'll probably look for volume 3, whenever it gets released. Quinn's basically the only DC Comic series I'm still following from the current set. Quinn and that combo Superman/Wonder Woman series (though volume 2 of that one died when I tried to buy it). ( )
