    This issue was amazing! I want to know what will or what can the ladies do in order to stop Ivy's madness. The artwork was excellent as well as Swierczynski's writing making for excellent storytelling. This is a series that readers definitely want to keep on reading. Read Full Review

    You know, I was as confused as hell for some of this comic, but once I figured out what Catman was doing with his triple-cross, I realized that I REALLY enjoyed this issue! A lot! Like more than any issue of BoP since it's relaunch! So what did I like? Well, the fact that this issue spotlighted Huntress sure did help, plus there was NO Hawk or Dove in this comic... I think THAT'S what bugs me the most about this series, the fact that those two are a part of things. For me, they just haven't fit in yet. In my opinion, all you really need in this series are Oracle, Black Canary and Huntress. Jettison the dead weight, Gail Simone! Read Full Review

    Foreman was still here as well, and his stuff was good, but his last few pages started to dip into that territory where it just sort of looks weird to me, with people's heads just having odd shapes to them. Read Full Review

    Never at a loss for action, but meandering where the story is concerned. We haven't had a fully played-out plot in a long time, and it can't really wait that much longer. Read Full Review

    The story's climax is more convoluted than I'd like, but I actually like this pair together. It's also nice to see the screwed-up but still noble side of Catman that's been missing since before the storyline involving the kidnapping his son. I also quite enjoyed the final conversation between Catman and Deadshot. Their friendship (something else I've been missing from Secret Six lately), definitely deserves more page time. Worth a look.

    Birds of Prey is running on all cylinders right now and it isn't slowing down by any means. BoP remains a quality character-driven book. Recommended to all. Read Full Review

    I've read enough of this series to want to know how this latest development with Ivy turns out, but new readers will have to look past the artistic distractions to enjoy the story. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Jul 18, 2012

    Duane Swierczynski's frantic script is unfortunately neutered by the artwork here, leaving his usual time-jump pacing to be a detriment to the story rather than a boon. The time frames are too confusing without a proper visual aid, and the sameness of the locations (due again to lack of environment detail) does nothing to combat this. It's unfortunate because without these severe technical problems, Swierczynski's Birds of Prey #11 has some of his strongest character work, particularly in the dynamics between Poison Ivy and the rest of the team. Starling also shines (again), but the entire product suffers because of the weak visuals. Read Full Review

    This issue might turn out to be an unfortunate blip. A new series artist is slated to come on board soon and Swierczynski could still take the story to a lot of interesting places. Still, this issue soured me some on the book. Many of the qualities that made "Birds of Prey" different from the rest of the DC lineup -- Swierczynski's slow, moody pacing and subtle character development, skillful art by Foreman or Saiz " are disappointingly absent in this issue.
