Preview: Birds of Prey #23

I started reading the Birds of Prey new52 relaunch but admit, dropped the title when it was clear this was a complete rewriting of the Black Canary I’d come to know. Gone was her history and she was a reworked version of the original Black Canary, a possible interloper from a parallel Earth.

But Christy Marx (Jem) came on-board the title with issue #18 and the title caught my interest again.  Canary still isn’t the same but she seems like a character I might follow again. In this preview of issue #23 provided by DC Comics,  the Birds are locked in combat with the villains collectively known as Basilisk and the issue also promises the return of Canary’s thought-dead husband, Kurt Lance.

Art is by  Romano Molenaar and Jonathan Glapion.

The issue goes on sale Wednesday, August 21st.

    The title’s definitely been picking up since Marx jumped on board. Canary is again a capable heroine not to be trifled with. I love it and the friendship she shares with Batgirl.
