** Issue #2 of Volume 3. The green alien that become a cow (and cause a ZombieApocalypse) is a reference to famous ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' story with the Skrull hypnotised and turned into cows.


Added DiffLines:

* ZombieApocalypse: Volume 3 start with "Coney Island" invaded by zombie. Their origin? An alien named Vertigax crash-landing on a farm and disguising himself as a cow, who accidentally gets butchered. After the meat-process, we see that Vertigax has been shipped all over as various meat products (particularly Coney Island hot dogs), contaminating everyone who eats him. This, naturally, results in zombies.

** Dan [=DiDio=] shows up in the Comic-Con special, where among other things he mentions that the next New 52 September event will have 4-D covers - basically 3-D, with the 4th D standing for [=DiDio=], as he'll be in the background of every issue - that involved mining one of the most remote places on Earth and melting part of the South Pole in the process, and that DC will be launching a line with ''no'' editors to overlook the content which they don't expect to sell at all, so they're giving them a low print run.
** Harley's comic faces rejection at Comic-Con because DC isn't looking for anything new or original.
** In #8, Harley launches a barrage of dog poop with the Scatapult at the DC office, where a "Gnu 52" reboot (where a villain forces Zatanna to turn everyone into antelope and wildebeest) is being pitched.
** The name of the boss demon in ''Harley's Little Black Book'' #3 is [[SdrawkcabName Nad Oidid]].



* TheBusCameBack: Captain Horatio Strong, an obscure character from the '70s ''Superman'' comics.

Near the end, she picks up a comic, not realizing that it's her own. If you look closely, you can see that it foreshadows how issue #0 will end.

* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: Issue 30, the last before the ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' relaunch, is something of a commentary on ''Rebirth'', with Harley refusing to let things be changed and standing up for the past, and Ivy finding a solution that combines the best of both worlds, in line with ''Rebirth'''s intended ethos.

In June 2015, it got a SpinOff miniseries by Palmiotti and Conner, ''Harley Quinn/Power Girl'', recounting a lost adventure set during the duo's partnership in the main series, featuring Vartox of ''Power Girl'' fame. In December of the same year, DC launched a second spin-off called ''Harley's Little Black Book'', again by Palmiotti and Conner, a ''Comicbook/TheBraveAndTheBold''-style team-up series that features Harley partnering with a different DC hero or villain in each issue. In April 2016, it got a third spin-off, the miniseries ''Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys'', written by Palmiotti and Frank Tieri.

* AlternateSelf: The Power Girl who shows up in the series is the Kara from Conner's pre-''ComicBook/{{Flashpoint}}'' series, not the New 52 Kara, saying in ''Harley Quinn/Power Girl'' that she's the sole survivor of her timeline and had that whole Earth-2 thing happen. How she ended up crashlanding near Harley is left mysterious, but ''Convergence'' allows for her to have travelled between Earths somehow.
