Quite the opposite actually, the numbers on the book dropped for three reasons. The constant delays, Dini leaving the book and the departure of Guillem March.
I heard my fair share of reviews disliking Dini's approach to GCS, until this very moment I didn't feel alone on this opinion
Sure, I'm the irrational one here, especially when Dini's work on the book was critically loved when it was coming out and it was somewhat a cult book, and the book only got negative reviews on the arcs that he didn't work on.
Nuh-uh ! That book did not receive universal praise, it ALWAYS had iffy rep.
And all of Peter Calloway's arcs were well received, specially the one with Talia's cameo.
And it was wasn't charicaturesque. Harley Quinn hadn't been regressed to an idiot yet, she was just a nutcase, and one of my major gripes about Quinn is that most writers forget that she was an accomplished psychologist.
Dude, I don't want to be contrarian just for the sake of it, believe me.
But, for what Gotham City Sirens was concerned, Dini did not give a royal shit about Quinn's background as a psychologist.
Harley Quinn was bumbly, cute, psychopathic little Harley Quinn, who paraded around in playful clothes, playing bimbo when seducing "Bruce", and who requested that her room had "lots and lots of toys".
If there was anyone who played to some effect her psychologist background, it was Calloway when she had Quinn manipulating Ivy's feelings of friendship towards her.
