One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Birds Of Prey #10
GOOD THING: Not surprisingly, The Death Of Oracle is a metaphorical death. That still doesn't stop the final pages from being powerful ones, as Barbara Gordon explains her revised role in the war on crime and a thinning of the ranks of her agents. And worry not Cassandra Cain fans - she is accounted for.
BAD THING: Inaki Miranda is a fine artist, but I think this cartoony style isn't well suited toward Birds Of Prey. At the very least, it is ill-suited to this darker, more serious story and the direction that Gail Simone seems to be moving.
And if the art MUST be cartoony, he should see little blackbirds - not stars!
The Final Verdict: Some overly cartoonish artwork can't spoil the stirring conclusion to this story nor spoil the excitement for the coming new era of Birds Of Prey!
