It takes so many folks to make a comic, and far be it from me to leave out any step of the process. Hence all the names on this particular letter. Now, on to the meat of things–Birds of Prey: The Battle Within. I’m slowly catching up on the trades of Birds of Prey, featuring one of the hottest heroines ever, Black Canary. Fishnets, anyone? Anyway, superhero comics don’t get better than this–kickass women in tight costumes, an appearance by Black Canary’s mom (the original BC), flashbacks of Batgirl in her hot-redhead-librarian prime, martial arts duels on a beach in Singapore and the seedy docks of Gotham, crazy villainesses, multiple appearances of the famed Canary Cry, and BABS MOVED HER TOES. Gotta go get the next one right away! It takes a village to raise a comic trade paperback, and I owe you folks for this five-star read.
PS – Almost forgot what was possibly the best part. Black Canary SCOLDED BATMAN. She’s got some rocks.
