Finally some Harley Quinn action in this last volume. Harley decides that enough is enough and breaks into Arkham Asylum to kill the Joker...how it goes...well...you chose if you want to see the spoiler or not...;)

(view spoiler)

There was of course also some action for Ivy and Catwoman, including one issue that just concerned Selina and her sister. It felt very out of place since Harley is hell bent on killing the Joker in this volume, but let Catwoman have a whole issue just dea

Very fascinating read that takes the Harley Quinn character and paints her into an entirely different and more dangerous light.

I've really enjoyed Gotham City Sirens, and I'm still sad that the title got canceled when the New 52 came in. But I did find the ending here pretty satisfying. At least it's an actual ending that explains why the entire series had to go away, instead of just an abrupt one. Everything to do with Harley and her Puddin' was spot on. I especially liked how the first part of the story let Harley's psychiatric skills shine. The Maggie storyline was odd, and came to an abrupt and not exactly natural ...more

The fragile alliance of semi-reformed bad girls - Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn, the Gotham City Sirens - fractures for good in this book as Harley goes to Arkham to face down puddin' and winds up inevitably falling for him all over again. Ivy and Catwoman fall out over going back to save Harley and the girls have a showdown in Gotham.

The book is kind of a novel idea of putting the three characters together and making them kind of heroes especially as only one could really have a claim

I don't know how to rate this. Mostly, I just wanted Harley, Ivy and Selina to play house together forever, being adorable and stealin' stuff bestie-to-bestie...-to-bestie. But alas, all good things must come to an end, or something. They'll work it out though...right?

I think it was a pretty decent ending for these guys. You knew they couldn't stay together forever...

I think the story with Catwoman and her sister was probably the worst of the bunch. It was part of a larger story line in Batman: Gotham Shall Be Judged, and wouldn't make much sense to someone who hadn't read that title. In it, Azrael picks Batman (Dick, not Bruce), Red Robin, and Catwoman as sort of champions for Gotham. If one of them passes the test, he'll spare the city from God's w

This is probably one of the worst endings I've ever read. Just when I thought DC was doing something right -- conquering sexism and misogynistic tropes -- they fail. Epically.

1.5 stars for Poison Ivy.

All of the Arkham Asylum/Joker/Harley sequences are wonderful, prefect, interesting, well written and fun.

The wrap up between Catwoman and her psycho sister Maggie is pretty lame. To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of religious zealots or exorcisms or plots that don't make sense. Catwoman is forced to choose to either kill her sister to save gotham, or....just save gotham??? Gee, what's a girl to do? I didn't quite understand why Catwoman needed to kill her sister as a penance, and I don't think t

This is the way to go out on a bang! I had to give this final volume an extra star just for saving this whole series from being an utter waste of paper. And Dini finally writes Harley in a way that makes sense in the non-cartoon world: she's utterly psychotic, cunning, and actually murderous (it was frankly shocking to see her kill, and yet it shouldn't be!). Her rampaging break-in at Arkham was full of the suspense that the whole series had been lacking: here's an event that could actually have ...more

For the entire series so far, Harley Quinn was usually just the comic relief in the group, with most stories featuring either Catwoman or Poison Ivy. That all changed in this, the final volume, and it's also what leads to the eventual break-up of the group. I guess the break-up was inevitable given the unstable personalities of all 3 girls. A good enough way for a series to end (although it was probably forced due to DC's New 52 "reboot"). This series won't go down in history as a milestone in ...more

3.5 -- A solid ending to my beloved Sirens. It's hard to accept in some cases that this series is over considering how it had the perfect balance of humor and seriousness. I loved that it played with all the pairings, and you so knew that Harley would never have it in her to kill the Joker no matter how hard she tired. I loved that in the end, they decided they need each other, regardless of the things that keep them a part. Great stuff, hope to read more Sirens in the future.

I thought these were great stories. They showed Harley Quinn at her best and baddest as she tried to break into Arkham to put and end to the Joker. They also showed that no matter what Poison Ivy is a loyal friend and how tough Catwoman really is. These were the last stories in the series before the reboot.

CReo que es uno de los comics mas importantes que hay que leer para comprender a Harley Quinn, su obsesión con "Mistah J" y su relación con Poison Ivy. Lástima que a mitad de esta compilación haya un tomo sobre Gatúbela y su batalla cn Azrael que no tiene NADA que ver con la historia principal y termina rompiendo por completo la lectura.

One of the real shames about the New 52 is that this series had to end. In this final volume, Harley has a confrontation with the Joker, and all those things that have niggled Catwoman throughout come to the surface. It is a true ending, but I really wish it didn't finish. The characters are a joy to read and the stories are engaging. A very good read.

If this were a movie the tagline would be: "there's a thin line between love and hate..."

I'm starting to doubt the usefulness of arkham asylum/prison. perhaps they should relocate it underwater or something.

(issue #20-26) Though the end is predictable by the title, I wish the sirens would have continued. Nonetheless, I enjoyed their journey and growth from time together. The inclusion of issue #22 from Judgement on Gotham has me just confused enough to look into it in the future.

3.5 i thought the ending didn't make a whole lot of sense but still good. i just keep shipping Harley and Ivy more and more as i continue to read comics with both of them.

Fantastic volume of stories about my three favourite Gotham women. Gets right to the core of their relationships with each other and their motivations.

Characterization of Harley was fresh, and there are some interesting two-page spreads in there. But the story could've used some quieter moments and clearer artwork. It just felt messy and rushed.
