"Who Is Oracle?" conclusion! The new Oracle has put the Birds in an untenable position-do what Oracle wants, or their whole lives get made public! So how do they turn the tables? And now that Huntress has Fenice in her sights, can she pull the trigger? She's never hesitated to kill why now?

    The best part about this book is I have no idea what to expect next month. The issue's ending leaves plenty of room open for several directions and my mind is racing considering the possibilities. To me, that is the sign of a great story, regardless of the medium – it provides pleasure as you read it and as you consider what comes next. In that regard, Batgirl And The Birds Of Prey is a great story. Read Full Review

    Admittedly the "Who Is Oracle" storyline has dragged in the past couple issues, but it comes to an emotional and well-rounded conclusion here. Each character is given their moment to shine, particularly Huntress, who had the most notable and conclusive arc out of our three main heroines. The series is not without its flaws, but the hilarious interactions and wonderful characterization of BATGIRL AND THE BIRDS OF PREY are well worth reading, and definitely worth coming back for more next month.

    This was a great character driven conclusion to an opening arc that continued to improve issue to issue. The Birds of Prey are back and have bonded in this Rebirth era whilst keeping intact most of the dynamic that worked so well in their pre-Flashpoint incarnation. Read Full Review

    Though it never reaches the heights of the Dixon and Simone years, this Rebirth arc of Birds of Prey is worthy of its name. Read Full Review

    While I liked the artwork, I have to severely criticize the use of black palms in the colouring. The new Oracle is black but his palms should have no melamine and hence not coloured brown. Colourist Allen Passalaqua should pay attention. Read Full Review

    While pretty much everything with Huntress is decent in this issue, that's about as far as I can go with complimentary aspects to this book...... well, that and most of the art is okay, but even that has problems throughout and overall, this story just seemed to be here to get the Birds team to constantly fight some Snake-Men and crack wise about the situations they were in.  I really hope this series gets better because I really want to like it, it's just hard to right now.

    AIPT - David Brooke Jan 11, 2017

    The story wraps things up, but not well enough to make it an enjoyable experience. Overall it's a bit dull as you never feel as though the characters are in danger and they don't jive with each other like they have in the past. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Jan 14, 2017

    Batgirl And The Birds of Prey #6 is bad, and the cumulative effect of this series is worse. Which is sad, since this series should be good and used to be good. It may have been created with the best of intentions, but the handling of it is so inept that just reading it hurts. It's a pathetic finale to a dismal story, and there's nothing about it which can be recommended. Read Full Review

    Each month, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey comes off more and more as an afterthought. As in, the writers put most of their time and effort into the television job, and just throw together what they can to get by with their comic" And that's pretty crappy for the fans and the readers.
