DC had a pretty good week this week. I loved both Batman #3 and Justice League #3; however, since Rusty picked them both I wanted to review some other books instead. I picked two DC books that are not quite my favorites (like Animal Man and I, Vampire), but two that are better than average and getting better with every issue. I also review two creator-owned books as well. Enjoy!
BIRDS OF PREY #3
Written by Duane Swierczynski
Illustrated by Jesus Saiz
This book is a fine example of a strong DC series that has gotten better every single issue. There are a number of titles coming out from DC that are doing this, and one of the benefits of DC’s relaunch is getting surprised by books that are better than I ever thought they could be.
These Birds of Prey – Black Canary, Starling, Katana, and as of this issue Poison Ivy – are hot on the heels of superhuman terrorists who are biologically turning people into living bombs. The addition of Poison Ivy causes conflicts within the team, but she soon proves her worth. After escaping one detonated bomb the team go looking for some of the terrorist agents they think are hiding on board a train, and not only do they walk right into a trap, but Dinah is caught in a very bad situation.
