Birds of Prey #4

All I have to say is great issue once again! Also I think I'm starting to develop girl crushes on Katana and Starling. :3

Oh gee. Judging by the page, could the missing bird in question actually be a certain Batgirl? Now I know why she didn't appear on the cover of #5.

Also, light-bending invisible men going boom wipes out memories also? This Choke guy gets more and more interesting as the issues come along. Really loving the new Birds!

Am I the only one who's found this whole plot extremely irritating. I'd like to buy this book but I just hate this story.

Fourthed! I am really loving this book. It's mostly the interaction between the characters and there's been some good non-linear storytelling.

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-12-21 11:55 pm (UTC)(link)
really? It doesn't feel actiony to me. It feels like a giant mindgame to me and I wouldn't be surprised to see the climax end up with some sort of "what was real" thing

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-12-22 01:27 am (UTC)(link)
I don't particularly care about the level of violence. It just doesn't feel "real" to me. I basically wouldn't be surprised if 90% of the violence turned out to be staged or lies or illusions basically. To use wrestled parlance I feel like it's setting readers up to be swerved

I love everyone in this book. I haven't done cosplay in years but I'm totally seeing both Canary and Starling in my future (or perhaps just Canary and my BFF as Starling).

Might I ask to people who are truly reading the book, what's Starling's 'thing'? I see her in most pages, doing something or other in a weird 'badass' pretend way, but she doesn't seem to have any defining characteristics whatsoever and seems to me much like a RIC, hardly defined yet extremely competent.

[personal profile] benicio127 2011-12-21 09:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Actually... She kind of reminds me of Face from the A-Team. A competent, smooth-talker. She has the personality of someone who could talk her way out of anything and I get the feeling that she would be incredibly good at poker. That's basically how her personality/character strikes me as, anyways.

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-12-21 11:57 pm (UTC)(link)
she strikes me as a mole, that Canary will be totally wrong to trust her and everyone warning her about her will be right

[personal profile] benicio127 2011-12-22 12:15 am (UTC)(link)
I actually haven't seen/read anyone warning Canary about Starling...?

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-12-22 12:20 am (UTC)(link)
she's on all kinds of watch lists and all and Barbara reminded her of that very firmly

So is Dinah. So is Katana. The whole point of the team they've put together (unless Barbara is going to be a permanent addition) is 'people who've fallen onto the wrong side of the law, somehow'.

[personal profile] jlbarnett 2011-12-22 11:44 am (UTC)(link)
yes, well, I think the reason why Dinah has is because she's hanging with a legit criminal

Starling, I love your hair. Also, this is no longer subtext, Starling and Dinah are full on textual. Ev even uses pet nicknames for Dinah.

This book continues to be awesome. And the art continues to be incredible. I love their costumes and the artist consistently draws fantastic women and great facial expressions! I loved Starling's face right before she knocked out the second walking bomb guy, and when Babs showed up.

I like Ivy's new look and powers. Also with her coat, she looks like a badass. Wonder if she still has her friendship with Harley though.

(on the totally opposite end, an highly awaited title, Batgirl, I've been finding it so-so)

Katana is holding her sword wrong for a kenjutsu practicioner. There should be space between the hands, placing the lower one at the bottom of the hilt.
