Things go from bad to worse for our plucky heroines. Gail Simone has a couple twists up her sleeve, one of which should stop the bitching over the deaths of two marginal characters last month. By the final panel the villains will stand revealed, along with a much larger plot, and none of it looks good for our heroes. (I can’t be the only one hoping Hawk gets killed, right?)
There are a couple of really nice moments here including Oracle‘s stunned surprise, a tearful possible farewell between Black Canary and her mates, some lurid daydreams by the Penguin, and Zinda‘s distaste at Hawk’s attempts to shield her from danger. Next month’s conclusion of this first story arc should be a doozy. Worth a look.
