@zadoulo: Because DC is full of a bunch of numb nuts when it comes to editorial.

Interesting character. Great art. Horrid writing. If only this book was at Vibe's level. But that will probably never happen as long as Nocenti is writing.

Nice looking visuals. I've been a fan of Cliff Richards ever since he was drawing the original Buffy comic for Dark Horse a decade or so back. When that book was canceled, I figured he'd catch on at one of the Big 2 and be a regular fixture, but it never really happened, unfortunately.

Sadly I lost interest in this book quickly, she wasn't the same character who was present in birds of prey, she was so cool, silent and had some really good one liners and she was so weird, I would have much preferred her being unhinged instead of all this mystical nonsense. Made her character more endearing I suppose.
