Rumor has it that Dinah Lance a.k.a. Black Canary killed a man with her sonic scream, and she's been running from the law ever since. But it wasn't a mere punch that shattered the victim's skull. Now, something far more dangerous than the law is hell-bent on taking down Black Canary: a cunning enemy who knows her every weakness, both physical and psychological. The only things standing between Dinah and certain death are her friends and teammates: Batgirl, Katana and Starling. But will they still want to protect her after they learn the truth about what she was up to for the past three years?

    "Birds of Prey" has consistently been one of the best and most surprising books of the re-launch with lovely art, smart storytelling and good character development including the introduction of a brand new character in Starling. As a reader, I worry about it getting swallowed up in the "Night of Owls" crossover, but mostly I hope that it helps get the word out to other readers about what a strong and intelligent book this is. It absolutely deserves a bigger following. Read Full Review

    Solid stuff from pretty much the only all-female team title on the stands, with Swierczynski finally starting to answer questions we've had all along. Read Full Review

    Birds of Prey is a solid book, but it really needs to get moving and stop drawing out the various mysteries introduced so far. Read Full Review

    The finally few pages really seem to drop the ball on what was a very fun, engaging story filled with ample amounts of action and internal monologue. It's still worth a look but ends on a rather disappointing note. Read Full Review

    But getting back to what actually happened, like I said, it was good and fun. Entertaining, and certainly made you feel like you were in the middle of a clusterfuck. So there was that. I mean, good issue over all, but still... just a bit confused. Read Full Review
