    Overall, this was fantastic and I loved every minute of reading it. I had a couple of tiny nitpicks, but they were only nitpicks, not real problems that hurt my enjoyment in any way. I wish all of the Talons in the other tie-in books were this scary. Read Full Review

    This was Travel Foreman's first issue, and while the style is vastly different than Jesus Saiz, it's still really awesome in it's own right. Saiz fit the book so perfectly, but I think I'm really going to like Foreman's art going forward. Read Full Review

    Birds of Prey is like a warm blanket, you just curl up and enjoy the moment. Gail Simone is a comic writer of the old school, meaning she writes for the month. There is no Big Event lingering in the back ground, her stories stand on their own and aim simply to be entertaining and showcase true heroes doing what they do best. Read Full Review

    It's almost inevitable that an event asinclusive as the Night of the Owls would produce a square-peg-round-hole situation such as the one that crops up in Birds of Prey #9, but it's not nearly as bad as it could have been. Travel Foreman does a great job of creating a cinematic aura to the book with nicely choreographed fight scenes, and the team resets for an exciting new direction centeredon Poison Ivy. If you don't expect this one to knock your socks off, you'll probably end up enjoying it. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 17, 2012

    "Birds of Prey" feels like it's in good hands with Swierczynski being joined by Foreman; this is a book that's continued to be fun month after month since the re-launch, with a spark that was missing from the title for a while. I'll miss Saiz's depictions of the characters, but I'll be sticking around and pleased with this revised creative team. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen May 22, 2012

    A rare underwhelming issue from Swierczynski, a result of a predictable crossover plotline. It has its entertaining moments, and I imagine even more once the series returns to its normal course. Read Full Review
