Maybe it's because I'm not as invested in the Harley/Ivy relationship as other people are but I guess I just don't really understand this massive amount of in-universe support and assistance they're receiving as a couple. Like, okay, they're a prominent and cute queer couple, but does that mean it's okay to help them escape (albeit overzealous) justice? I dunno :confused:.
I'm guessing it might also hint at how little they really they know they're known outside of Gotham and could be setting up some interesting interactions in other cities.

I feel like Babs' priorities get really mixed up when it comes to dealing with Harley...when she mentions Stephanie, does she mean Clayface Stephanie :rolleyes2:?
No doubt. Guess Clayface is still going to the university as Stephanie. lol. There's also another subtle callback to "Riddle U" in that Harley and Ivy put on that makeup to conceal their skin color for their date at Blud Garden.

The other cool nod was they went to the theme park Bludhaven Thrill Park that Psycho, Clayface, and King Shark went to in "Bensonhurst".

Hush kind of appeared out-of-nowhere. So his plan was just to harvest their organs? And he thought he could trap them if he flirted with them like discount Bruce Wayne? I mean, Hush is kind of a sleazy guy but it was still kind of random seeing him here o_O.
I guess that was to allude to his medical background origin from the comics. In HQ, I guess his shtick is to kidnap people and harvest their organs on the side to fund his activities. I think the joke was because they had their make up on to conceal their identities, he had no clue who they were at first and was just trying some Bruce Wayne pick up lines but it backfired and he snapped.

Uh...Carmine Falcone? Kind of random, but okay. I'm guessing Catwoman still scratched his face up :eek:.
Yeah, he's in Bludhaven for some reason? Guess he bailed when Joker's tower leveled Gotham and relocated there and set up his empire anew.

Mephitic struck me as a more disgusting Plasmus :ack:...

Oh hey, Cyborg :).

This version of Zatanna continues to not talk, even in comic form :p.

Harley and Ivy had more villain friends than I thought...not that it stops them from using said villains' place without permission after getting them incarcerated and having sex there :rolleyes:.

Ivy trying to be more considerate of people even when she's perfectly okay with murder, even using it as part of a plan...just remember at the end of the day these are Supervillains, not good people :shrug:.

Livewire and Nightfall? Uh...okay. I guess Livewire's not major enough that there was probably any pushback to making her into girls now (not that it would really contradict that much with other interpretations of Livewire) but it was kind of random. I guess Harley and Ivy aren't the only Supervillainesses with complicated romances. Nightfall had a lot of portraits of them together o_O.

Referencing the TNBA team-up between the trio :).

Nice showcase of Vixen! I'm glad she didn't job to Harley and Ivy and actually handed Harley her butt and fought off Ivy ;).

"As if I'd let them mosey past me after killing these CEOs - who deserve it." Jeez Mari, that's pretty dark. Like how can you unanimously write off actual human lives just for being CEO's? Maybe they didn't have the best business practices or harmed the environment, but still :sweat:.

Neat, as it was Nightfall's place, there was Fastball and Black Mass with her in one photo frame then at Cedar Evergreen Inn, there was Shatterfist and Maya. Nice hat tip to Cadre.

Ah, that explains why Nightfall wasn't at the wedding. Broke up with Livewire right before.

Loved the callback to Calendar Man's son Joey bringing in contraband, lol.

I'm gonna guess the Detroit PD may not appreciate Gordon's presence next issue.

Another fun issue. I liked a lot of the humor here and there (like Vixen's use of the giraffe and skunk abilities) and it was a nice expansion of Livewire, who was mostly a background character in the show. Cool to see some queer relationships with DC characters who aren't just Harley and Ivy in this show's universe.

I am a bit tired of the push-and-pull between Harley and Ivy, though. I don't feel like a lot has progressed for them, and we're almost done with the series. Mephitic has an appropriately gross design, but not much of an impression so far. I do like that Ivy suddenly caring about children and affected families comes more out of guilt over the wedding rather than just retconning her more ruthless side.

Referencing the TNBA team-up between the trio :).
I smiled when I saw that and made me wish we saw this version of the team-up.

Yeah, I did focus more on the easter eggs and the other characters in this issue because of that. It was a little weak sauce the fight with Vixen was only the last 3 pages.

I guess part of it is that it's trying to carry some "drama" when it seems like their relationship is going well in season 3, so it's trying to build up to that, when they can't have anything too plot significant happen...

If the fight had gone any longer the girls probably would have lost and ended up in prison :p.

I suppose but we had enough of that in season 1 and 2, imo.

True, and yes, #4 was basically used to set up Detroit and all its elements so nothing too drastic could happen or else #5 would be pretty boring. I think it probably plays better reading both back to back. And I guess #6 will finally reveal where Harley was planning to take Ivy.

Apparently, Nicole Dubuc really liked Gargoyles when she was a teenager. Maybe this was the catalyst of her collaborating with Greg Weisman on a number of projects.
