    The Rainbow Hub - Emma Houxbois Dec 30, 2015

    What ultimately lifts Black Canary into being the best title of the year is that it isn't just telling a story, or telling a great story in a novel way. It's providing an experience, it's a vehicle for capturing the energy and intimacy of a great concert experience. There's a story being told, and it's a good one, but that story is in service to the art in a way that no other book in the mainstream is right now. Black Canary #3 and #6, especially, are incredibly immersive experiences that force you to slow down, take them in, and repeat the experience the same way your favourite albums do. Read Full Review

    Black Canary #6 is perfection on every level. Fletcher's writing is fast paced, action packed but still holds something back, while Wu and Lourhridge's art will leave you flabbergasted with joy. This series is not to be missed and this issue is another perfect example as to why. Music lovers and aspiring creators especially need to read Black Canary as it has so much to offer.

    In a time when the most talked about comics are stories of us versus them, it's refreshing to read something so good that presents the exact opposite view point- we're stronger as a team than we are as individuals-without losing any of the action that fans expect from superhero comics.

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Dec 30, 2015

    Leaving us on a cliffhanger in issue #6 (oddly enough, like quite a few DCYou titles have), Black Canary continues to be a study in how many ways there are to produce a compelling comic book that breaks the mold on classic super-hero adventure. Fletcher, Wu, and Loughridge have synced up to deliver a command performance month after month, and left me yelling for the encore with every issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Jan 1, 2016

    You should really read Black Canary. It's good, strange, affirming and unique. It combines a lot of different storytelling elements while still maintaining the spirit of the Black Canary character. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 30, 2015

    Black Canary #6 is a wonderful and surprising end to the series' first arc. While maybe a tad too much flash and not enough substance in one or two areas, the comic was a lot of fun and leaves off on a rather exciting note for the future. Overall, while the scheduling wasn't great for the book, this is easily one of the highlights of DC Comics' DCYou line. Hopefully the next year is just as great for this title. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Dec 30, 2015

    Bits and PiecesPoor pacing and lame plotcontrivances make this story somewhat of a dud, but the artwork by Annie Wu andLee Loughridge is really creative and should be celebrated. Though I don't hearany music while reading this book, some of these panels surely did sing. Thereis a big reveal at the end, which only opens another host of questions, and theway the series has been unfolding thus far I don't know if I care to know theanswers. If you can flip through this book at your local comic shop withoutgetting your knuckles rapped by the owner, I'd say it's worth that much of apeek. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Dec 31, 2015

    I don't know about this book at the moment. The tones seem to shift back and forth as fast as a puck on an air hockey table. I tend to be drawn to more serious narratives, but I'm sure there are a number of people who prefer the more light hearted aspects such as band duels. Regardless of the direction of this book, it's still miles better than Batgirl at the moment! Read Full Review

    My advice to most Batfans is to skip this one. If you're looking to pick up a hot new series, go with something likeTitans Huntinstead. Read Full Review

    Closing thoughts –Just too many problems in the story. I don't want to sit here and be negative, so I'll leave it at that. Check back with me next time to see if I think it gets better. Read Full Review
