    This really is a good one folks, a fight scene that balances emotion with excitement, character development and of course, actual story progress. My one complaint would be that this story takes place before current issues of Batgirl, so her state here doesn't exactly line up with where she is in her own book, and because I've been enjoying that title so much lately, that took me out of this one just a little bit. That's a personal gripe though, chances are it won't effect your enjoyment of the story. Read Full Review

    I think Talon fans can probably hold off on buying this one, but they won't feel like they wasted their time or money if they do decide to pick it up. All the characters sound like themselves and I thought it had some very dynamic illustrations. But while everything here is well executed, there's just not very much substance. Not a whole lot happens. Comic readers know the routine: when one hero character with their own comic must kill another hero character with their own comic, they fight to a standstill, eventually come to an understanding of each other's situation, and decide to team up. It's what happens after that which will be the most interesting and we don't see any of that play out here. Read Full Review

    The plotline is set to continue in Talon #9, but it's hard to feel motivated to pursue this story any further than this. Hopefully, Birds of Prey will find its wings soon, but as it stands, the title is in danger of falling even deeper into its rut. Read Full Review

     When a tie in to a book that I enjoy every month doesn't do anything to spur my confidence, something's wrong. In the first post-Starling issue, all the problems are clear, there's just nothing interesting about this book anymore. Black Canary as a character seems lost, Batgirl is just there, screw Condor, and Strix can't even talk. This issue wasn't Ann Nocenti Catwoman #0 bad, but ultimately, it's just depressing. I see no point to this story, and what they're trying to convince me of mattering, is falling flat. A romance between Black Canary and some no-name is pretty much the exact opposite of what I want... at least the art was nice. Read Full Review

    Their fight scenes are stellar again, but overall, this issue is a misstep that a lower-tier series like this can't afford. Read Full Review
