    Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #3 is great serial story telling and a lovely-looking book, to boot. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Oct 13, 2016

    The combination of banter, action, and mystery in the Bird's life continue to be very enjoyable, but the Benson's skillfully layer in moments of genuine emotion and relationship. Read Full Review

    The Birds reads like any old crossover special rather than the superhero squad goals we spent decades pining for. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 12, 2016

    This series continues to be a fun character-soaked ride. If you dig character building–or just Black Canary in general–you gotta read this. If not though, the main narrative is so slow moving you could skip it and miss little. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Oct 17, 2016

    So… Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #3 is an improvement in some ways. Unfortunately, it also has huge flaws which need to be urgently addressed. As such, I still can't recommend this title and it's looking like a dud from DC. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 12, 2016

    The action and the dialog in this issue felt really off from the get go and we get really nothing to move this story forward from what's presented here. With all of that, the art in this issue isn't really to my liking either and ultimately I find myself just being disappointed with this series. Read Full Review

    Batgirl & the Birds of Prey is more of the same. If you've been enjoying the book, then you will continue to enjoy this title. If you're like me, and have been expecting more, then you'll most likely just grow more frustrated because more cracks are starting to form under the weight of the various plot threads. I'm still hanging in there, but just barely. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rebecca Henely Oct 12, 2016

    Ultimately, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey has parts of it I liked, but it's a bit too hard to love. I love the idea of reading about DC's most-prominent all-women team by a team of all women, but too much of it isn't landing the way it should, and that's a real shame. Read Full Review
