Synopsis: In Part 1 of Batter Up, Harley Quinn’s friends try reaching out after she isolates herself while having a rough time. However, when she hears from the gang and locals that he gets abducted by a Bat, and not a member of the Bat family, she has so choice but to interact and try and save him.
What You’ll Need To Know: The awesome Frank Tieri has taken over writing! Harley has a hard time and blames herself for people close to her getting hurt. Her new love was murdered by her enemy Mayor DePerto a few issues ago.
In This Issue: Some things are the same and pick up from previous issues but it is starting over in a way so they can have more material to work with. It takes place the most at Coney Island pier, and we see how Big Tony goes missing. Him and Harley have been tight since the beginning, always having each other’s backs, so of course she snaps out of her funk. She encounters this Bat, ironically, with a bat! But she does this very badass-ly. It is awesome to see a Batman villain (Kirk Langstrom behind it all, or.. almost) in this issue but with the Harley Quinn twist. This was written well overall and could pick the series back up again.
