This issue of Black Canary takes place much earlier in their career, and is a welcome break from all of the crazy going on in the series. It takes place at an unpublicized birthday party gig, for one very special little girl.
Oh my goodness, Fangirls. Not only am I ridiculously behind on Black Canary comics, but this one has so much happening in it that I needed to stop reading, multiple times. It starts with some great incorporated “previously on…” While the police are interrogating Byron, Paloma, and their road manager. It seems that Dinah has disappeared, the police thing Ditto and Mr Lance are dead, and that what happened at Gotham Stadium was more than what is being released to them (on that account, they’re right).
First of all Fangirls, there is nothing like the art of this series. Annie Wu is absolutely destroying the art, and making it so beautifully unique; I can not get enough of it. Second of all, I want to relax and take a breather now that I understand Ditto a bit more, but the way this issue ends, it’s impossible to do anything but to move to the edge of my seat.
There is nothing out there like Black Canary’s series. Nothing. Not only is it gorgeous, but it’s a read that will keep you on the edge of your seat and leave you screaming for more. I have yet to read another comic that had me this locked in from the start, and has kept me wanting it.
The Thors are coming, the Thors are coming!
Now that Eiko’s father, the leader of the Hasigawas is dead, it’s up for her to take over before Sionis can snatch the leadership from her hands. In issue 45, she goes far above and beyond the need to show her allies and family that she can handle controlling the Hasigawas.
Fangirls, this is a gorgeous and intense series. Two issues in, and I’m concerned about characters other than Captain Marvel, because they’re well written and shown as important. It’s wonderful seeing not just Carol written well, but a whole team of women.
