Well, Black Canary is familiar. I like the story, but missed Huntress and the old style and group. Starling seems like a melding of characters to keep elements from the old series. It seems that the Birds of Prey (BoP) will be more Gotham and Underworld focused. I feel like I am rambling.
There is not really much to comment on in many ways. There was a stale feel to this book. I have noticed that the books I had more connection to from the Old DCU tend to leave me a bit empty, like I want more. Maybe I feel that when you ditch the comics that were working for a gimmick to make short term gains, that the story should be AWESOME. BoP wasn't.
Black Canary was like herself. This new Starling is like Huntress, Lady Blackhawk, and every kicck-butt female in the DCU. We are to accept her without knowing about her. I am not liking her too much so far. Her character is OK, but I just have seen this before and those characters were built up before I got this “type” thrown up for my reading.
Basically, my former loyalty to the old book has this one on the pull list. I like Black Canary as well. It is also one that is on the chopping block. It needs to perform or it will be cut. I have limited funds to buy comics and that amount is shrinking each week. I can't just buy for the sake of supporting an all female book. I can't keep a book because I hope beyond hope it will get better.
