    Leaving us on an intriguing cliffhanger, the comic with its own fictional band continues to be one of "DC You"'s most interesting experiments until the very end. Read Full Review

    Unlike some other DC books that are seemingly just spinning their wheels until Rebirth comes along, Brenden Fletcher is using these final months to catapult Black Canary through an epic story exploring the hero's past and a mystery involving her mother. Read Full Review

    This is a very strong issue. The action is fun, the mood is creepy and it's simply a fun read. If books tend to be mainly action, it's a little less enjoyable than others for me. It's still fun but it is mainly a big action scene. Despite that, I definitely recommend it. Read Full Review

    I liked it! I genuinely detested what came before, but I'm thrilled that it seems like we might end things on a high note. Fletcher stops pelting his reader with accounts of what happened elsewhere and elsewhen, and instead hones in on a captivating conflict and some genuine shockers at the end. I'm actually excited about the next one. Well done,TeamBlack Canary. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 27, 2016

    A clunky first half of the book gives way to some ooky spooky action in the second half, that might be worth the initial ride to a lot of people. The artwork looks a bit rough, but does the job okay in a punk rock book like Black Canary. Though if Black Canary was really punk rock, it wouldn't be published by a subsidiary of Warner Bros. It would be a Xeroxed mini zine, sold in boutique shops and via mail-order. And most of it would just be collages of people's faces clipped from the newspaper with an Anarchy symbol drawn over it in magic marker. And then years down the line, you would find yourself barred from employment at the investment firm of your choice because your name popped up as being on a counterculture mailing list during a routine background search.

    This book has been all over the place, and this issue was basically just a holding pattern for what was teased at the end of last issue ALSO being teased again at the end of this issue. there was some good fighting, but not much in the way of “good dialogue” plus an editorial oversight caused a color swap for Batgirl and Black Canary’s hair, so that it looks like DD is holding Batgirl’s phone when Frankie calls and is asking HERSELF about her own aunt Rena. i know i harp on these things a lot, but it just really bothers me, because i am certain that editors are being paid a WHOLE LOT OF MONEY to editorialize and to catch these sorts of things that we all pay money for, and the fact that we are giving these companies money for books that pay editors to edit them when they don’t actually DO THAT just is infuriating. add to that all of the mess involving the higher ups and their disregard for the editors that actually have established history with a company, or to commit to long-term coverups and making business moves to continue employing an alleged sexual harasser. aside from all that other malarky i just don’t like when editors don’t do their jobs, and they obviously won’t really do their job is they are too busy harassing female coworkers. so maybe we need a rebirth across the board in editorial, ALONGSIDE a rebirth of creative teams and books? because these things are just silly, stupid and EASILY FIXED. so maybe, fix them before they go to print? since it’s your job??? or not, and just keep doing whatever else you do to collect your paycheck and continue to harass or cover up harassment of others, because there is no way that will ever come back to bite you...
