Growing up, I never really got into Batgirl, nor did I really read very much of Birds of Prey, however, I knew of them from friends and the media (I.E. Comic Stops).
Not the mass media we are used to now (responsible for more spoilers than I would like to see). At first glance, I was thinking to myself, “I really don’t have high hopes, nor high expectations”.
I just thought, ” Great, another comics I’m being forced to read and I know I’m not into it anyway”.
I was wrong. Rebirth is a lot of things. Some great, some ok and some not so good, but that’s ok. There are always going to be winners and losers. That’s the occupational hazard comic book
publishers, artists and writers are aware of and except as a Fact-of-Life.
The book I read and am now telling you about is not a dud nor a loser. When you have amazing writers like Julie and Shawna Benson (The 100) and other titles, along with Claire Roe (Saltire) you are taking lead and making gold.
The story is informative and entertaining. I feel lucky, that I get the opportunity to read hidden gems such as this latest creation. As with any “Rebirth” edition, there is a flashback period and the point
that brings everything into light to the here and now. I learned many things that I was not aware of and some very cool surprises as well.
Although I cannot go into details with spoilers ( I like my job and wish to keep it), I will say this, the writing is solid and the artwork stunning. If you are a fan of Batgirl and Black Canary, I urge you
to go pick up a copy and read for yourselves. Available today, at your local Comic-Stop. If you know me by know, you know that if it were bad, I would tell you so. I’m not shy and not afraid to let you know when I read a dud.
This fantastic piece of artwork, because that is what it really is, was a delight to read.
I look forward to reading more from this very creative and amazing team of writers and artists.
Until next time,
