    Paul Dini is undoubtedly one of the all time great Batman writers He gave us the Batman Animated Series, the first and best two Arkham games, a bunch of awesome Batman comics and, probably his most significant and lasting contribution to the world of Batman, co created Harley Quinn That said, he s not infallible and has written his share of forgettable drek which unfortunately includes this first volume of Gotham City Sirens There s disappointingly little in the way of story Things get off Paul Dini is undoubtedly one of the all time great Batman writers He gave us the Batman Animated Series, the first and best two Arkham games, a bunch of awesome Batman comics and, probably his most significant and lasting contribution to the world of Batman, co created Harley Quinn That said, he s not infallible and has written his share of forgettable drek which unfortunately includes this first volume of Gotham City Sirens There s disappointingly little in the way of story Things get off to a very shaky start as Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn join forces to become the Sirens and subsequently end up not doing much else but bicker for a few issues A tangible, but still weak, storyline emerges in the second half as Harley s ex puddin Mistah J gets a dose of the jealousy bug after seeing her going out with Bruce Wayne secretly Tommy Elliot Hush, standing in for Bruce while he was time travelling back from caveman times see Grant Morrison s The Return of Bruce Wayne and decides to kill them both It s momentarily interesting until the anticlimactic reveal which features a very obscure for a reason Silver Age character The book reaches its nadir when Scott Lobdell NOOOOOO takes over for an absolutely pointless issue featuring Dick Grayson Batman and the Riddler, who at this time was trying to go straight as a private investigator in a dreary storyline that failed to no one s surprise I m glad it was only for an issue but the unmemorable case of these two stopping some nobody serial killers added nothing to the volume and could ve easily been left out to no effect Guillem March s art is pretty good, if a bit ass centric the ladies almost always have their backs to the reader , and some of his character designs are questionable The bookseller from the Lobdell issue looked like she d beat home in a strip club And, while he may be lacking ideas in the story department, Dini writes all the girls well It s not nearly enough to recommend checking this one out though Gotham City Sirens, Volume 1 Union is a wearying slog through one boring comic after another Nuh uh

    This was such a fantastic volume and I m so excited to read the rest of the series Harley, Ivy and Catwoman make the best girl gang ever and it was great to see them working as a team It was also cool to see them have ahuman side to them like when they were all trying to convince Harley to get over the Joker The group worked really well together and it was just super great to read The twists and turns within the story kept me wanting to carry on reading and I loved how the story progres This was such a fantastic volume and I m so excited to read the rest of the series Harley, Ivy and Catwoman make the best girl gang ever and it was great to see them working as a team It was also cool to see them have ahuman side to them like when they were all trying to convince Harley to get over the Joker The group worked really well together and it was just super great to read The twists and turns within the story kept me wanting to carry on reading and I loved how the story progressed It was also pretty cool to get to meet Harley s actual family and see how the way they are made her who she is today Haven t read a comic series this good in a while and I can already tell it s going to be one of my favourites

    So Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn move in together and try not to break too many laws It s campy in a very fun way, it has nice art, and it s written by Paul Dini What s not to like Ok, so there s a bit too many fan service panels for me But it is Paul Dini, and it s Harley, so I m going to love it And campy fun it may be, but the characterization is good anyways Maybe not worth a buy unless you re a big fan of one Harley or all three of these ladies.

    Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn decided to work together, which, well, not work too smoothly, not when the first thing Ivy and Harley decided to do is to tie Catwoman up and try to make her tell them who Batman really is But what is a little tying up between friends They are soon best buddies again, and out to fight bad men and rescue Harley that gets kidnapped by Bruce Wayne I like this series, Ivy, Catwoman and Harley are hilarious together And it s fun to see the three main women of Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn decided to work together, which, well, not work too smoothly, not when the first thing Ivy and Harley decided to do is to tie Catwoman up and try to make her tell them who Batman really is But what is a little tying up between friends They are soon best buddies again, and out to fight bad men and rescue Harley that gets kidnapped by Bruce Wayne I like this series, Ivy, Catwoman and Harley are hilarious together And it s fun to see the three main women of Gotham team up and kick asses and perhaps one day Harley will get over her obsession with Mr J Well perhaps not

    DC Comic s three best ladies in my opinion move in together and of course, crazy antics ensue.There are clearly some things I missed jumping into this one however, it was nothing that the comic didn t review so you knew what was going on.Catwoman will always be my favorite.The artwork was spot on.

    actual rating 3.5 stars You re about to learn in no uncertain terms what it means to mess with me and my girls I m kind of in a reading slump right now, so I decided to pick this up I ve read some comics but never really in the right order I know, what s wrong with me This did make things difficult for me, because I was often really confused I love reading about female friendships I m so glad there s never any tension between the girls Well except sexual tension between Harley and Ivy actual rating 3.5 stars You re about to learn in no uncertain terms what it means to mess with me and my girls I m kind of in a reading slump right now, so I decided to pick this up I ve read some comics but never really in the right order I know, what s wrong with me This did make things difficult for me, because I was often really confused I love reading about female friendships I m so glad there s never any tension between the girls Well except sexual tension between Harley and Ivy It s nice that we also get to see these characters when they re not working I do think Harley s mom is really harsh She fucks up but she used to be a good person It s not her fault The Joker tortures her It was so odd to see her in normal clothing I m glad Selina didn t wear her outfit in every scene Let s face it it s sexualised But she wore a pantsuit in the last issue of this volume, and she looked FABULOUS One of the reason I m not giving this a higher rating is because in one issue, the women were only in it for one page AND I LOVE THE CHARACTERS I d also like a bitaction When I look back, I don t remember that many things that happened And like I already mentioned it was confusing.This is certainly something I ll continue reading Each comic is very short which is positive And I m glad there s a story and not just a different case every issue

    This is one of thelighthearted Batman comics In all actuality, I prefer it to Hush or anything by Jeph Loeb It combines humor the thing I love about the Batman villain line up with violence And that s what I think most Batman comics are missing something to balance out serious Batman And I have to say, I m liking this team up between Selina, Harley, and Poison Ivy Their characterization isn t half bad and they re actually portrayed in a pseudo positive light without the self righ This is one of thelighthearted Batman comics In all actuality, I prefer it to Hush or anything by Jeph Loeb It combines humor the thing I love about the Batman villain line up with violence And that s what I think most Batman comics are missing something to balance out serious Batman And I have to say, I m liking this team up between Selina, Harley, and Poison Ivy Their characterization isn t half bad and they re actually portrayed in a pseudo positive light without the self righteous, am I good or evil and we can t kill people bullshit you get with hero team ups If you prefer Rose Wilson Wonder Woman style hero morality to boyscout Superman whinging, you ll enjoy this.The story itself is a bit slow, especially when Hush and Edward Nigma are introduced, but whenever the main players interact, it really shines As for the art There s a bit too much fanservice, but if you like Jim Lee or Michael Turner, you won t notice

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Before reviewing this I have to admit that I am a hardcore Harley fan I have perfected my Mista Jay , and have an adorable figurine sitting by my computer This is all very embarrassing to type out, but that being said, I am very critical of not only how she is portrayed personality wise, but how she is drawn as well I am happy to say Harley shines in both aspects in this graphic novel Her playful psychotic cuteness just beams from beginning to end I will never be a fan of catwoman I m afra Before reviewing this I have to admit that I am a hardcore Harley fan I have perfected my Mista Jay , and have an adorable figurine sitting by my computer This is all very embarrassing to type out, but that being said, I am very critical of not only how she is portrayed personality wise, but how she is drawn as well I am happy to say Harley shines in both aspects in this graphic novel Her playful psychotic cuteness just beams from beginning to end I will never be a fan of catwoman I m afraid, but she plays a minimal enough role in volume 1 that I m not grumbling under my breath.In this collection of tales, we find our lady villians of Gotham City are teaming together for good in the varying shades of gray good always is in this perpetually overcast town Gotham City Sirens seems to catch the girls right after the Hush situation in Gotham If you haven t kept up with the fact that Bruce s childhood friend took his FACE, ripped out catwoman s heart, is now successfully posing as the wealthy playboy, never fear, Paul Dini does a good job here giving an adequate back story, at least enough to still make this enjoyable if you are just tuning in for the sirens Harly and Ivy are found living with a near comatose Riddler compliments of Ivy with little funds left of their own Ivy of course has all but given her money away to one rain forest project or another, Harley shops a lot to compensate for boredom and lack of her sociopath lover to keep her entertained, and it seems catwoman is the only one with any money sense so everyone ends up shacking up with her in her newly renovated fab pad complete with toyroom This Graphic Novel is great With other great characters gracing it s pages like the Riddler, embittered little gaggybut I wont give away all the surprise guests, I ve said too much already It s dark, funny, the art is fantastic, and you don t want it to end So don t be like me and wait on the 2nd one in case the 1st one wasn t worth it, buy volumes 1 2, curl up with some candy and be immensely entertained
