One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Birds Of Prey #8

GOOD THING: I just love this page for what it says about Dinah's view of Batman - Bruce Wayne Batman, that is. (Gawds, but it's still weird having to qualify that!)

BAD THING: With all the thought that has apparently gone into Dinah's background following her confrontation with a psychic villain who causes people to become lost in their worst regrets and just what might constitute a regret (We even see The Ray, whom Dinah had a one-night stand with shortly after Ollie's death, in a story that most Black Canary fans have tried to ignore ever since), it is a bit jarring - given everything that happened in The Rise of Arsenal - that Dinah wouldn't see Roy Harper among all the figures staring her down.

I know we're all trying to forget The Rise of Arsenal... but you'd think Dinah might spare a thought for the younger brother/foster son she couldn't help save from himself.

The Final Verdict: Still one of the best books on the market, bar none. Can't wait for the next issue.


  1. Gail has just X'd Rise of Arsenal from continuity, then?
    Or the artist did?

  2. I dunno.
    Either way, Roy should be in there if The Ray and Ra's Al Ghul are, dammit!
