It’s been a while since I read this, but Harley going to hell was a cool idea lol, Ivy’s knight terrors was my favorite so far, I just started the whole event from the beginning. This reminds me I should finish DC vs vampires too lol
You’re right. We’re here to discuss why Harley should 1: Steal Rip Hunter’s Time Machine, 2: Trick Mr. Terrific into modifying it, 3: Go to the Owl House universe, 4: Befriend the main characters, and 5: stick Odalia Blight into a blender.
-Regarding “Who Killed Harley Quinn?”, I found this less scary or spooky and more drama/character-driven which I really appreciate. A well-written story that has some weight to it
An interesting choice to focus on the Poison Ivy Knight Terror tie-in rather than the Harley Quinn one. But I recognize how Harley was used and found that it has strong ties to how Ivy is willing to give anything a chance - despite how much she might be opposed to it - if she is doing it alongside Harley. Utilizing that and then ripping that comfort away is a horrific thing to do to someone and I think it was well done.
-The Cursed Comic one-shot didn’t have any Harley in it. So a little confused as to why this was chosen. (My favorite is probably the Zatanna story)
-The one-shot relating to DC vs Vampires does try to show a Harley that, despite keeping her personality and general sense of humor, is still altered and impacted by the vampire apocalypse. And this story adds fuel to my theory that Catwoman has some sort of Poly set-up with Harley & Ivy. Anyway, revealing that something in Harley’s body is the key to winning this war was a clever idea.
-Not really scary since this is full-blown zany Harley Quinn we are dealing with. But I liked the idea of her starting off repeating the same scenario over and over and always ending in failure. That was a nice touch.
I did, some yes, but I went with DC vs. Vampires, because I haven’t read that series and went back to catch up. I liked it more than DCeased, but I prefer vampires over zombies, so that’s not a surprise! It had more suspense and better artwork, too. I don’t read one shot anthologies often, but Cursed Comic Cavalcade was a fun collection for the holiday.
As it goes for the ones I’ve read, Poison Ivy had one of the best and most haunting stories for all of Knight Terrors. G. Willow Wilson continues to impress with how well she understands Ivy and Harley’s role in her life. The story from Harley’s first series is one of my favorites. That’s around the time when the series started to get good all around. Who Killed Harley Quinn, as well. Happy Halloween!
