    Black Canary was an utterly unique experience that lent itself to being pulled apart and examined in a way that few other comics ever have. The lessons it has to impart about storytelling and form will remain evergreen, and if it gets its proper due, will live on with the same kind of cult status imbued on Elektra: Assassin, Batwoman: Elegy, or Flex Mentallo.

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Jun 13, 2016

    Black Canary is about to embrace part of her legacy by co-starring in the relaunched Green Arrow, and Fletcher, Wu and Jarrell leave us in no doubt that they've restored the kick-ass history of one of DC's most powerful female leads. While it might be a shame that Canary no longer has her own series, having never made it past a dozen issues of a solo title, this perfect mashup of music and comics plugs straight into the mainline of everything that has made Black Canary an essential part of the DC Universe for almost 75 years.

    For a book so defined by fun and hope, this is one bleak and depressing issue. Fans of this series will find a very unsettling tone as this story goes on, as we see the entirety of Dinah Lance's life to come pass in a very soulless fashion. Read Full Review

    Really easy to follow along on this weird, wacky, time-jumpy journey. An postive off-the-wall end to the Black Canary series. The last 3-4 issues of this series were fantastic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jun 9, 2016

    This issue's concept was cool and handled fairly well, despite a clunky story about Dinah's mother and some demons that need to form like Voltron. Well, a two-piece Voltron, anyway. Maybe they form more like Firestorm. Annie Wu's return this issue is felt in the creative captioning, expressed as handwritten notes in the header margin, but it doesn't make this superfluous arc seem necessary. Some interesting artistic choices throughout this run will probably never be seen due to its relative banality. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a decent issue. The art is fantastic for the most, I like what is done for Dinah's character and there some creative concepts. However, certain elements go on too long which results in others not having enough time to completely work. Ultimately, I would recommend waiting for the trade on this one. Read Full Review

    This final issue gets a 6, but it is in part paying for the sins of its fathers. In reality, I enjoyed Fletcher's end to this series quite a bit, and I wish he could have found this late-coming quality sooner. If I'm being honest, I won't likely read this run ever again; but I can just as truthfully say that I had a good time with it here at the end. Read Full Review
