The issue starts off right from the last with Canary wondering who the White Canary is and why she seems so familiar. She and Huntress do their best to tag team her as Oracle calls in backup with the White Canary clearly being at a bit of an advantage.

Backup arrives soon after in the form of Hawk and Dove. White Canary breaks out of Huntress' hold while Hawk tries beelining White Canary. Interestingly enough it doesn't lead to the end of the fight like I thought it might (him being a meta and all)

The team then has to abandon the fight after the cops show up with the intent of arresting them all as some mysterious enemy (presumably White Canary or someone she's working for) has framed Black Canary for a murder. The group is forced to flee, Penguin who's somewhat conscious tells them to go towards his club the Iceberg Lounge so the group works their way past the cops. Also, in amusing fashion Penguin seems to be taken aback by the beauty of a certain blue bird.

But on route to the lounge....

Hmm, a mention of Sin alongside the eerie White Canary.....

And the issue ends with Barbara getting ready to give the enemy a beatdown as you see a bunch of screens with happenings of Brightest Day like Aquaman, Jade, the White Lantern power battery and so on....        

And there's one/two big spoilers from the issue I wished to circumvent and didn't mention in the post, go get the issue! :P

No can do, even if I wasn't tradewaiting. No one on the west coast is getting BoP this week, it seems.

It's like they're not trying to hide the fact that it's Sin.

Which would make it awesome if it isn't actually her.

I kind of am thinking the White Canary is Cass.

Also those two big spoilers you mentioned? OMG! Savant! Creote! :-O

Ok I think I am gonna join the crowd that thinks White Canary is a rapidly aged Sin.

I'd say that option is preferable to the Cass Option.

Hopefully she can be de-brainwashed (because she's totally brainwashed right now whoever she is--can't you tell?).

yeah, I'd say she's some artificially aged Sin.

For some reason the thing about this issue that irked me most above all was Barb's hooker nails/make-up, ugh

I'm thinking I'm gonna buy until the end of this arc so I would know I gave it a chance but seriously this kinda um is not that good to be polite to a certain author around here

How are long nails "hooker make-up?"
Lots of women have their nails long at one time or another, and
Adriana does tend to draw women with longer nails.

But I appreciate you giving us a shot, hope you like the rest of the arc better!

I wouldn't call them hooker nails but I do agree they are somewhat jarring. Made me pause for a moment. For someone who works a lot with computers and presumably types a lot having long nails seems really out of place. ... Or possibly it's just me who finds typing with long nails harder/more annoying/uncomfortable..

Yeah, the minute Hawk showed that hank of hair I immediately thought "DNA." That didn't pay off this ish, but I'm dying to see where it leads.

I might be completely off, given my limited knowledge of the character and lack of desire to reread and see if it was covered at the moment, but I'm going to guess it's Sin's biological mother. Would explain the pushes toward Sin without it necessarily being her.

Well, SOMEONE hates Dinah, all right. I'm not really qualified to venture a guess as to who. but it should be interesting finding out.

I haven't looked at all the posts regarding White Canary, but has anyone suggested she's Carolyn Wu-San? Other than being Shiva's supposedly murdered sister she's pretty much a blank slate for whatever a writer would potentially want to do with her.

That page of Dinah punching White Canary in the face, that's a big part of why I will always defend Ed. I get that sometimes a butt shows up where it doesn't quite fit, but I could give that same page of script to twenty artists and few would convey what I intended the way Ed does here. He really does have intensity and great acting skills and I dearly love that.

I agree. I love Bene's facial expressions, a lot.

Mind you, I love arses, too, so I always get distracted.

I don't think the outfit has ever been meant to be intimidating. It's the fact the guy wearing it can punch through brick walls that's the intimidating bit.

I hope Hawk and Dove get updated costumes at some point.
They kinda look like circus acts next to Dinah,Zinda and Helena.
I mean there costumes are O.K. for 1980 >_< but yeah
maybe not all black or leather which seems like the trend, but just something a lil less Trapeze actish
