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.
