    "Birds of Prey" #12 is a huge step in the right direction, and almost feels like the "real" launch of the series. This issue has a much stronger and a more appropriate creative team, a smart terribly creepy storyline that's still full of humor and personality, and a cover that announces itself to the world in full badass mode.

    There are a few minor holes here I hope get filled in during part two. Why, exactly, did Tripe and/or the building come to Oracle's attention in the first place? That's never actually mentioned, and leaves me somewhat curious. On a related note, what did they learn that made them try the "help with a blackmailer" approach? I'd wonder how Huntress managed to track down Question out on the streets so easily, but all the Bat-family and the adjuncts seem to have the "find anyone in Gotham at any time" power. I'm also not entirely sure about either why Huntress knows who Junior is (did Catman tell her about their run in during some as yet unseen date?) or why she panics so badly on learning that's who the team is facing. Junior is a nasty piece of work, I grant you, but I've never seen anything to make me think that Black Canary, with both world class fighting skills and her sonic powers, or Dove, with her various abilities, would have anything to fear from Junior.
