The cover to "Birds of Prey #7"
Oh, how I love Black Canary. She needs a lot more spotlight than DC is giving her. However, her lead in Birds of Prey continues to satisfy my hunger as it did pre-New 52.
The issue opens up with the team doing battle. However, Poison Ivy starts to get a little too close to what she used to do. Next, Canary tries to stop, and a battle ensues. However, one of the men they are battling is taken over by Choke. As Batgirl and Starling confront Trevor Cahill, Starling confronts him revealing who he truly is. Not happy about that, he controls Starling to attack Batgirl. Luckily, she dodges the bullet, and stops Starling. Canary uses her canary cry to stop Ivy and the henchmen from fighting her. As Cahill tries to escape, Batgirl stops him in an alleyway as he tries to escape. A very emotional scene then occurs between Canary and Batgirl that is very much true to their relationship. As the team (minus a pissed off Batgirl) interrogates Cahill, Ivy starts on him, and is poisoned in the process. However, then Katana slashes his head off declaring her dead husband in her sword will get the truth out of him. Canary is quite upset by this, and is a little aloof about it. As Canary is back home, Batgirl and her reunite making up for their past grievance. However, an upsetting call from Katana follows…
This title is amazing. Seven issues in, Duane Swierczynski is still keeping my attention. It amazes me with such big shoes to fill from Gail Simone how he is able to walk in, and have complete control over the characters and narrative. I cannot forget to mention Jesus Saiz who is literally killing this book. His art and structure of the panels is too great for me even to put in this review. With these two, I want to know what happens next immediately. Lucky, that is this Wednesday.
Today we look at a certain Bird of Prey as cosplayed by Ardella.
