    Action has always been Molenaar's strong suit and he doesn't disappoint here, even if his lady characters still suffer from the dreaded Same Face Syndrome. Jonathan Glapion's inks and Chris Sotomayor's colors add a saturated sense of depth to the visuals that works nicely with Mr. Freeze's icy antics. Now that Strix has thawed out some, we'll hopefully have a chance to get inside her thus far enigmatic head next month as Marx promises an epic Talon on Talon showdown. Read Full Review

    Ok, so when you get right down to it, Birds of Prey isn't a bad book, and issue #20 certainly isn't a ba issue. For me it wasn't great, at least not until the final reveal, but it was definitely net resting and I'm looking forward to seeing how the story progresses. I should note though, that the imact of the reveal at the end is of course entirely dependant on how much you recognize of care bout the revealed character. Read Full Review

    This remains an underrated book, but I hope it breaks new ground moving forward. Read Full Review

    As you can see by my post on the preview, I was not happy with this coming in. I expected to not like it at all, but came out of it having liked it more than I thought I would. I still have major problems with how some of the things went down, but I can at least buy into what happened. I only hope that we actually get an answer to why, but wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't happen in Birds of Prey... Hopefully Starling shows up in Suicide Squad (due to the Waller connection), or I feel like the heel turn will be yet another mystery never answer. Read Full Review

    I don't remember the last issue of "Birds of Prey" I read before this, and it is pretty safe to say I'm not going to remember much about this one. I came into this issue with minimal expectations, but those dropped on the floor, largely thanks to flimsy characters and adequate artwork. Knowing that Starling is now working with Freeze is enough to top my disappointment sundae and "Birds of Prey" #20 is likely to be my last issue of this title for a little while. Read Full Review

    With the next issue crossing over with Talon (a book I have been enjoying quite a bit), Im pretty torn about where to go next. Should I keep the title, holding out hope that the book featuring some of my favorite leading ladies gets back on track? Or should I drop Birds of Prey, knowing that nothing changes so long as readers continue to reward poor creative decisions with our dollars? Im honestly torn. Read Full Review
