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.

The premise alone of a bulked-up, Bane-inspired badass Babs running a team of Batgirls should be enough to make you buy this comic, but the way it’s all pulled off makes it worth double the price you’ll pay for a copy.
