    Normally I'm quite a fan of throwaway adventures that devote most of their attention on being lighthearted fun. However, this issue is almost too pedestrian in its approach, and as such the sections of the issue that focus upon Dinah's adventure are positively dull. On the other hand, the sections that focus on Barbara and her guest manage to develop the tension quite nicely, and there is an element of mystery to the man who has taken Barbara hostage, as he claims to be the original Killer Moth, and he also appears to be well aware of the fact that Barbara was the original Batgirl. His ability to circumvent Barbara's impressive security is also worth a mention, as it suggests the man is far more dangerous than the average thug. In the end though my disappointment with the Black Canary material left me a bit cold on this issue, but the impending arrival of Gail Simone has me quite excited. Read Full Review
