It's time for a change in the Birds' outfit--and the writing is on the computer screen that at least one member of the team will be moving on. With issue #100 just around the corner, now seems the perfect time for a reality check.

    In The End: While I wasn't entirely thrilled with this issue I can't say that I disliked it or point out too many problems I had. Gail is a fantastic writer, and she has really made this book her own. This is one of the few books that survived the purge I made of my pull list a few weeks back, and I am truly glad that I stuck around. Gail is a good enough writer to know when to shake things up, and this was the perfect time to do so what with the hundredth issue coming up. I'm not entirely sold on Huntress's new costume, but that is another matter entirely. It will be interesting to see who the new member of the team will be, and I hope that at some point we'll see Dinah again in the pages of this title. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Hervé St.Louis Nov 12, 2006

    The artwork in this issue sucks. The cover is hideous and inking throughout is irritating. There, I said it. Raiz can't draw a character the same in every shot. Sure, sometimes they look good. But it makes everything inconsistent. I can't describe well what I loath about the inking but I'll try. Instead of covering the hyper realistic artwork of Raiz with a good dose of smooth lines and large shadows, it highlights the bad proportions and facial disfigurements of the characters. The lines are so crisp that the characters look at you straight in the eye with no nuances. The reader doesn't get a break. It's all in your face. Read Full Review
