Exclusive Preview: Harley Quinn #57

Harley Quinn’s been down in the dumps since spending Christmas with her family. Harley’s brothers made a mess of everything, but she was really devastated by the news that her mother has cancer. Even in the DC Universe, that’s a diagnosis that can’t easily be brushed off with comic book science. But in Harley Quinn #57, the former Clown Princess of Crime is going to get the chance of a lifetime.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview of Harley Quinn #57, Sam Humphries and artist John Timms reintroduce Mirand’r, a Tamaranean who represents the Lords of Order and Chaos. And if Harley Quinn can pass her upcoming trails, she will be cosmically empowered. Perhaps she’ll even be able to save her mother’s life.

Here’s the official description from DC: “There’s been a murder in Gotham City, and all evidence points to just one suspect: Harley Quinn! Batman hunts Harley down on Coney Island, where they come to blows…but did she actually do the crime? Meanwhile, the Trials of Harley Quinn begin! The Lords of Order and Chaos send their harbinger Mirand’r—the ghost of a young, Earth-obsessed Tamaranean—to find a champion to complete their seven trials and become the Lords’ archangel of retribution…and Harley Quinn is their new contender!”
