Harley Quinn Loves Booster Gold… To Death?

Yesyerday, I looked at an interview that Sam Humphries gave to DC Comics media partner CBR about yesterday's new issue of Harley Quinn, which featured quite a getting-to-know-you between Harley and Booster . With Humphries saying he was inspired to bring them closer together after what he detected as a frisson in the Heroes In Crisis series. So I thought it might be fun to compare and contrast yesterday's Harley Quinn #72 by Sam Humphries and Sami Basri with a few scenes of Heroes In Crisis by Tom King and Clay Mann. See how well they smoosh together. Whether it's getting a bite or a drink to eat…

Couples with a little self-realisation about who you really want. Or rather what you want to do to them with any implement to hand.

Well, Harley, if that is true, one way or another Booster Gold may regret this. After all, what was it you said to him back in that first issue of Heroes In Crisis?
