It's a mixed bag, but overall the quality of most of the stories wasn't great. The Black Canary story was pretty good, but Talia's story was mediocre, and the Clownhunter and Harley stories were pretty bad. Clownhunter becoming a master ninja in no time didn't make much sense, and the Harley story tried to convince the readers she would be an asset to any team and completely failed. Overall, a ski more

Why does this exist? I hate using the term "cash grab", and even though this doesn't really fit the description, the word definily comes to mind after reading this. Nothing here feels like it needs to exist. Black Canary's fight with Angel Breaker went nowhere, we still don't know much about the two. The only purpose of their encounter is to set up another fight in the future, feels flat and more

I get my numbers on what is available to the general public (I've included a link) I didn't see the series in Amazon's top 100 sellers either. So I don't know what you're basing your viewpoint on. For what it is worth every time I've walked into the LCS there are at least 5 shelf copies of the series unsold. https://icv2.com/articles/markets/view/51096/top-50-comics-april-2022

Taylor was pushing the Amazon top 100 a couple of months back. The reality is the book is selling poorly other than gimmuck issues which spike for that month. Same as you noted the LCS I go to the book is not selling. Now to be fair the only DC books that are selling well are the batman books.

Dc Fan of Sorts - May 9, 2022

And I don't think that a lot of books are hitting right now at DC Comics, but this whole "DC is replacing traditional heroes" rant is old and keeps not being the case. Sure, this is an attempt to possibly show readers what is cool about these legacy characters, but if you think Discovery AT&T will let DC drop the main heroes (the ones with movies even), then you are just being silly!
