One coloring mistake on Canary's hair threw me off. Otherwise it would get a 10. Good story wrap-up. Good choice in where art switch off occurred. Glad to see Ivy back in the mix w/being part of the Birds, even if only part time. Awesome setup for next issue.

First she's ready to kill him, then decides not to take the sword? She's whines and complains but does nothing to prove she knows better.

The art is pretty, but this series is so painful to read. It's like reading a snarky, ill willed twitter log, not a Hellcat book. I was really looking forward to this series. Instead of channeling Patsy it feels like the writer is just acting like Patsy is her, instead. Save your money, folks.

This book does a great job of transitioning the traditional view of Dejah from cheesecake eyecandy damsel in distress to what she has becoming in Swords of Sorrow.
