Previously, I posted about how Dinah went to Asia to learn to be Shiva and instead remembered who Black Canary is. She also met a little girl named Sin who was going to be trained as the next Shiva. Dinah instead brought her back to the US as her daughter. Here I post Sin's next four (and last) appearances in Birds of Prey. From #96, #98, #100, and #109.

That's what happens when you try real maple syrup. You never go back.

That last panel made me laugh and tear up at the same time, and I don't think I've read beyond an issue or two with Ted in it.

Some more Sin cuteness, cut short by the fact that this issue also introduces Misfit, and I'm sure someone someday will want to post it.

This next bit is from BoP #100. The actual story is 15 pages long and involves Dinah and Sin packing up and Dinah explaining her relationship with her mother to Sin. It's a bit complicated to post so I say just go check it out, but I included a few bits involving Dinah explaining her relationship with Ollie as that becomes very important very soon.

Cue montage of basically all of Dinah and Ollie's history up until that kiss with Marianne, with Dinah saying that Ollie hurt her badly.

Hmm, that shot about "taken in an orphan girl to boot!" reminds me that there has been a surprising lack of Mia on the new s_d. Although I wouldn't exactly describe her as an orphan girl.

And finally we get to BoP #109, after Ollie has proposed to Dinah but before she says yes. The issue is basically Babs trying to talk Dinah out of it, but there is cute Sin as well:

Big Barda vs Sin: Go!


Next: Dinah considers Ollie's proposal! Ollie has no eyeballs! And Sin gets dealt with in an incredibly stupid way.

Okay, first off, did anyone else look at that scene with Sin eating the pancakes and think of that short Hellboy comic where he eats Pancakes for the first time and the demons of hell realize they've lost him forever?

Secondly; Sin teaching Barda how to play Pokemon will never not be cute.

Oh god, yes - do pancakes really have some sort of magical quality? I appear to need to get to US and find out.

I've never understood the American obsession with ruining perfectly good pancakes with ridiculously sickly sweet maple syrup, and yes, I've tried to "good stuff", I still don't get it. A little bacon is fine, some sausage for contrast, no problem, but not drowned in syrup.

I'd assume that is maple syrup. Perhaps it's some artificial stuff, but it's still meant to taste like maple syrup. Although there are other varieties. Blueberry, strawberry, apple etc.

Pancakes as a breakfast food are just not a British "thing". We tend to prefer toast, or if you're having a cooked breakfast, fried bread.

As for pancakes, well they're treated as a sort of afternoon thing to have with tea. If we're going for the drop-scone approach (Which is close to the American version) then we'll have them with a little jam, or lightly buttered.

If we're looking at something thinner, like crepes then any number of things can be put in those. :)

Okay, now I'm hungry dammit!

well, I don't know how they're made in the UK, but in my experience pancakes are way to dry if they're just lightly buttered. And jellies and jams just aren't associated with pancakes.

Although I actually prefer to put a lot of butter on and melt it and only put a little syrup on them.

Speaking as an American, I've never liked having tons of maple syrup on my pancakes.

Tons of apricot syrup, on the other hand...
