    Short summary describing this issue.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    One is wanted for a murder she didn't commit. The other is on the run because she knows too much. They are Dinah Laurel Lance and Ev Crawford – a.k.a. Black Canary and Starling – and together, as Gotham City's covert ops team, they're taking down the villains other heroes can't touch. But now they've attracted the attention of a grizzled newspaper reporter who wants to expose them, as well as a creepy, chameleon-like strike team that's out to kill them. Don't miss the start of this hard-hitting new series from mystery novelist/comics writer Duane Swierczynski (Expiration Date, Cable).

    General Notes

    Poison Ivy's appearance is cover only, Katana's appearance is also cover only (although she is mentioned and a picture of her is passed between Babs and Dinah). These characters should still be credited to the issue however.

    Overview   Ornithologists beware, the Birds.. are back.. and they are... back.. and stuff. This is another one of the DCnU 52 books, that has characters on the cover that do not actually appear in the book, but that's okay. Book starts fast and that pace is keep at such for most of the issue. Most of the issue focuses on Black Canary and my totally favorite new character of right now, Starling. (its the tattoos, sass factor and the hair) but one very famous and popular Bird of Prey character fro...

    The New Birds of Prey 0

    Synopsis: Black Canary takes the role of assembling a new Birds of Prey.What's Good?This is not the Birds of Prey I know, and that's a huge statement coming from me. I was very reluctant to buy this book, because it was missing one of its central cast member: Oracle. How exactly was this group going to function? I'm not that familiar with Duane Swierczynski writing other than Psylocke, but makes Black Canary the central character for this series. She's still framed for a murder, but she still wa...

    The Good: From the solicit, I thought for sure this was going to trample all over BoP history, starting the team fresh. While it was perfectly accessible to new readers, it doesn't ignore its roots. Black Canary is seen trying to recruit founding member Barbara Gordon, and Canary herself is still on the run for allegedly killing a man. This is explained enough to make it feel like it's just setting the scene for new readers, and is a great reassurance for old readers. While some girls have been ...
