    While not as strong overall as the first two issues, the third installment of the new volume of Birds of Prey is still an excellent read. Gail Simone's writing is topnotch throughout as she twists and turns her way through this thrill ride, though the shortcomings of the art do hold it back some. Still, when taken as a whole, the highest definitely outshine the lows and you get an issue that should not be missed. Read Full Review

    All in all, Birds of Prey #3 is a fun, engaging read. Simone has a great skill for writing the characters, and her ability to embrace the sexuality of the art without making it overtly crass is a great strength, further helped by talented artists. She even sneaks in a little commentary. Im looking forward to Endruns conclusion. Read Full Review

    It doesn't help that regular penciller Ed Benes isn't in his finest form, and once again bows out while Adriana Melo handles the issue's last handful of pages in an entirely different but just as unpleasant style. I recall a time when DC's high-profile relaunches didn't resort to fill-in artists in their debut arcs. Read Full Review

    Next month's conclusion of this first story arc should be a doozy. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Oh, most importantly, Cliff Chiang's cover for "Birds of Prey" this month? Gorgeous. Any time he wants to draw another cover for the comic, I'm all for it. (Hint hint, DC.) Read Full Review
