A little new blood, some of the old guard and a bevy of beautiful butt-kickers — what more could you ask for in a book?
Writer Gail Simone’s superb run on Birds Of Prey continues as the team heads out on the road to tackle some homicidal vigilantes, Black Canary teams up with Justice Society veteran Wildcat to battle some of the deadliest assassins in the world to bring down a drug lord and Oracle, A.K.A. Barbara Gordon battles for her life against a runaway computer virus.
This 10-issue collection, which also features some fantastic art by Ed Benes, Joe Bennett, Tom Derenick, Joe Prado and Eddy Barrows, is a perfect illustration of why Birds Of Prey has been the most consistently impressive superhero book over the last half decade.
