In The End: A new era begins! How often have we as comic readers read or heard that? Well, as clichd as it may be, it also applies here. Gail Simone has kicked off a new epoch for the Birds and a change in format that has a lot of potential. The cover of this book stated that this was a Special Extra Sized Anniversary Issue, and it was indeed special. Gail turned in a tight story that had the usual action, drama and suspense that those of us who like the series have come to expect in addition to a tender, character driven back-up feature. Even with the slight problem I had with Katarina, this was a truly great issue, and it generated a lot of excitement in me for the future of this series. Read Full Review
Overall, the lead story is a by-the-numbers rescue mission that gives the reader a chance to see how the new team is going to look. The jury is still out as to whether this is the right move or not, but it's promising. I like the addition of Spy Smasher to the book. I especially like Nicola Scott as the artist on this book. That, more than anything else, generated the excitement. This book is on the upswing now, and this issue is a very good jumping on point for new readers. Read Full Review
