    So yeah, this book is crazy. There are times where I don't really enjoy all the WTF moments that aren't really explained, but this... yeah man, whatever, this was awesome. Missiles, plant monsters, Starling always having C4 on her, apparently. This issue had it all. This really is a fantastic team book, a group of distinct personalities, crazy action, humor, and plot twists here and there (yeah, Ivy ain't exactly innocent looking on the final page). This issue was just plain fun, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Read Full Review

    So begins new chapter in the life of Barbara Gordon. As Oracle she was becoming too conspicuous; she needs to go deeper into the shadows so the villains of the world can't see her coming. The Birds of Prey just became deadlier than ever. Read Full Review

    Enjoyable, but disjointed, and you can't really overlook that this series has been wandering around without a map for a while. Time to get our bearings. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Brian Salvatore Jun 21, 2012

    This issue is not the best of the series, but it is keeping the series on point, and allowing interesting stories to be told outside of the cowl in Gotham City. It also has 5 strong female characters at its core, and it never feels like a book that is pandering or attempting to tackle female issues a male writer isn't suited to cover. This is simply a good team book, where the team happens to be female. Neither Saiz nor Foreman draws gratuitous skin, but both allow the characters to be sexy without being sexpots. That is more than most female-centric/male-written comics can say, and they should be applauded for it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Jun 20, 2012

    Birds of Prey #10 was not my favorite issue of the series. It does, however, imply a new scale to the ladies' adventures that should be entertaining to experience. The deficiencies that I found in this issue are, by no means, enough to warn people away from the book. In fact, it's very possible that fans of the series and of Travel Foreman's work may come away with a totally different impression. Swierczynski and Foreman have both proven themselves able creators in the past, so, either way, readers should expect big things from the upcoming arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jun 25, 2012

    The action of "Birds of Prey" #10 can seem slow, but this may be related to how Swierczynski's writing emphasizes gradual character development. To that end, perhaps we'll see some villains with sustained depth at some point down the line along with further emotional insights into the team dynamics and each team member. Read Full Review
