The Birds of Prey are ready to soar — in five different directions.
Club Kids jams together five standalone tales that weave in and out of the greater DC Comics’ continuity (touching on elements from Countdown and Final Crisis) and highlight a bevy of beautiful Birds.
There are some heavyweight tilts: Team-leader Oracle vs. her arch-nemesis, the Calculator; Huntress vs. a school busload full of crooks; and Lady Blackhawk vs. a pair of baddies named White Star and Falseface. And while moments like the memorial service for one fallen Bird, the death of a member of the Secret Six and a startling revelation about the previously unknown relationship between two of the youngest chicks in the nest, Club Kids lacks a real cohesive thread and doesn’t satisfy as much as collections of this series usually do.
