Highly recommended for fans of the series.

In this issue, suddenly it seems as if a new story is in progress and there is no proper exposition provided as to what exactly is going on.

Format: Paperback
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 to that label and even then very shakily. That said, with nothing really major happening that the usual hi-jinks you'd expect from a Batman spin-off book, the book feels a bit flat and the tension a bit contrived. You know no one character is going to die so all the fighting seems a bit forced.

That said, Peter Calloway introduces an interesting idea into Ivy and Harley's relationship - does Ivy love Harley? When the characters begin pairing off with their respective halves (Batman/Catwoman, Joker/Harley, Alyce Sinner/Black Mask) Ivy is noticeably alone. It doesn't go further than an insinuation but development of the idea might make Ivy's character that much deeper.

"Gotham City Sirens: Division" is a decent read if you enjoy the Batman universe like I do, putting in the spotlight side characters who normally don't receive this much attention, but it's not essential reading to all but big fans of Gotham.

This is the first time I’m reading a “Gotham City Sirens” title (and definitely it’s the last time). The main characters are Catwoman , Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, who have (or rather had) become like a team. When I bought this book my feeling was that Ivy and Harley had reformed ( Catwoman was never a bad guy according to me) and that they take on some bad guys. But sadly it was nothing like that. It was like Ivy and Harley have hardly reformed..they’re still the same psychotics that I remembered them to be. Morever, it was disappointing for me to see that despite the true nature of these two, still Catwoman has a soft corner for them. Though I’m not a huge Catwoman fan but from what I recall from having read about her, she would never team up with psychotics. In fact, she would hardly team up with anyone, for that matter . I’ve been reading Batman comics since decades. I have NEVER seen /read any story before to indicate any kind of friendship between these characters. These three have been brought together just for this book/title. And I must say it’s a poor concept.
There are still some more things about the story that I didn’t like. I’ll mention them below but since it will include spoilers, I am putting a header for the same.
SPOILER ALERT – BEGIN
Issues # 20 and 21 are mainly based on Harley Quinn and are told from her perspective. In the beginning of the story , it’s indicated that Harley wants to take revenge on the Joker, that is, kill him. Yeah, right. As if that’ll ever happen. It was just a nonsense concept to make into a story. Any one reads Batman comics knows that Harley will do anything to make the joker happy and here it was being trying t show (briefly) that Harley wants to kill the joker.
More than this, I found another part of the story disgusting.

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 have to read it to see...;)

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 dealing with her family problems...at least Ivy knows where her priorities lies...

Unfortunately this was the last volume, I would have loved to read more...
