"The fast-paced plot enhanced by Harley's trademark style of speech examines the impact of gentrification, and Harley's character development follows a redemptive arc that will have readers rooting for her and her colorful family. A riotous read." --Kirkus Reviews
"Mariko Tamaki's voice is absolute perfection in this altogether
refreshing spin on a young Harleen Quinzel's beginnings. Anchored
by stunning art by Steve Pugh, readers get to revel in a Gotham
City that has drag queens fighting gentrification, a familiar-named
practical activist going against an all-consuming corporation, and
an endearing delinquent just trying to find the fairy tale that
fits her remarkable life. Shantay you stay (on my bookshelf for
decades to come), Breaking Glass."
--Sina Grace, GLAAD Media Award nominated author of Iceman "Breaking Glass is a standout achievement that demonstrates the unique blend of words, pictures, and color that comics offer. With its diverse cast and respect for the essential natures of long-beloved characters, Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass should appeal to comic book newcomers as well as longtime fans." --Foreword Reviews
"A modern, funny, and satisfyingly fresh take on the origin of a superhero revolutionary." - School Library Journal Anna Murphy, Berkeley Carroll School, Brooklyn
