Gail's writing it again?

Wait, She brought Ed Benes along for the ride too?

Damn it, now I might actually have to give this one a shot.

I'm conflicted. I dislike that art. Everyone looks the same. BUT GAIL SIMONE?! Urgh. I just might check it out.

Damn it!!

I want to cut back on books and not get any new ones, but I'm going to have to get this. I just recently started reading Simone's first BOP run and I LOVE it. I also LOVE Benes' art. Plus, Black Canary, Huntress, and Oracle are some of my favorite characters. UGH!!

I like Simone but I never really cared for Birds of Prey, so unless Secret Six cross over with an arc, I doubt that I'll get it.

I'm jazzed on this. I am not a fan of the artist though.

I really dug the first issue of the relaunch. Gail's writing was spot-on (Gods I've missed her Zinda), and Benes art was tolerable. Hawk & Dove will be an interesting fit. Helena being the one to break was a great touch. I've got a feeling White Canary is a new character.

First issue was great. I love how the band is getting back together and the eventual addition of Hawk and Dove should prove to be very interesting. I am curious to see how Gail writes Hank Hall and how he'll fit with the group. Should prove to be interesting. I am hoping that whoever the White Canary is, she is new. Overall, great first issue and I am on board.

LOVED the first issue. I just know that this book is going to be one of my favorites.

I loved the art. I just LOVE Benes. I know opinions of his art are sometimes mixed, but I absolutely love it.

I too hope that White Canary is new, and I hope we see a lot of her.

Great first issue with an intriguing setup. I'm hoping to hell the mastermind here isn't Calculator, but in my heart of hearts, I know it to probably be true

I think White Canary could be..

I can't get over how much I LOVED this.

I hope Gail stays on for a LONG LONG time. I also hope that the team's roster stays as it is. I love the dynamic between BC, Huntress, and Oracle. Lady Blackhawk is awesome as well. I don't want any of them gone. And I think Hawk and Dove will bring something interesting to the book. I don't want the team to get bigger. I like a small to moderate team, and I don't want a bunch of new members added. The only additional member that I'd gladly welcome would be Batgirl (Stephanie Brown). I love her, and I'd love to see her on the team, but I doubt it'll happen. Though I do expect her to show up as a guest star or for there to be a crossover.

I'm dying to review this..but you know what, it's almost Sunday and everyone and their mama's reviewed this...I'll make it quick..


Birds of Prey #1

This is easily the best comic of the year, and anyone who owns previous issues or trades of B.O.P. will be pleased to know the high-level of quality has returned since Simone's departure.

Ed Benes doesn't just stick to cheesecake; his darker, more discreet version of flair turns a more serious turn to Brightest Day. All the while, appearances by Hawk (I love this guy's one-note toughguy persona) and Dove are reason for the stamp alone. No one quite writes the Sex in the City-on-Steroids communicating like Simone with Dinah, Babs and Helena. Nothing's typical either; some of their "against-type" reactions to certain situations, such as the resurrected superheroes from Blackest Night, are sure to surprise readers.

In all, Simone did the ultimate job planting seeds (White Canary? Icelandic terrorists!) for future issues at the same time recalling key figures from the original B.O.P. run (Savant ring a bell?), and providing readers with enough ass-kicking/name-taking juice to quench the thirst of this week's smart #1 buyers.

4.5/5 Bags&Boards - Completely awesome, with only one minor mishap of Babs' over-narrating purge towards the issue's climax. Best issue I've read since Brubaker's "Who Will Wield The Shield?"

This was my first time reading Birds of Prey. Simone did a good job introducing the concept of the team to me without overshadowing the story with exposition. I love how she writes these characters, and Benes' art is a good complement to the story, in my opinion. I can't wait to see where they go with this book.

This is was pretty good. I'll probably end up getting the first arc and see how I feel then.

I really hope so too but it will probably will wind up being Calculator. Your theory for White Canary is really good.

And if the Green Arrow book is heading in the direction Longbow Hunters did, then this kind of makes even more sense

I really enjoyed this first issue and am definitely signed up for this ride. I've never read any of the Birds of Prey stuff but have loved Simone's work on Secret Six so am sure I'll enjoy this. Obviously this is a very different group of characters than Secret Six but I have to say the Six seems more like Hawk's world so it will be interesting to see how he fits in with this group.

I kind of felt the whole scene with Huntress breaking down seemed a bit awkwardly done to me but that's only a minor gripe. All around I thought this was really nicely done and I really enjoyed Ed Benes's art. His characters are a little one dimensional but at the same time I think he does a pretty good job with the action sequences.

Anyway, I'm pretty excited about most of DC's new comics at the moment. They've really started up a bunch of good ones in what seems like a golden period creatively for the company.

Maybe it could be

JUST KIDDING. But, I would really like to see her turn up either here or in Teen Titans.

Good first issue.

I was kinda on the fence, but it's added to my pull list now.
