Meet the crime fighting, female detectives known as the Birds
of Prey. There is Oracle - the computer genius who used to
fight crime as Batgirl, now paralysed but still in action,
and Black Canary - the young adventurer who feels she has
something to prove to the World...
Old Friends, New Enemies, Oracle and Black Canary investigate
a vicious slave trader, run into some deadly female mercenaries,
take on the powerful Kobra crime organisation, fight a prehistoric
monster, try to bring a war criminal to trial and hook up
with Dick Grayson , the former Robin - now the superhero known
is a fairly impressive collection of Bird of Prey stories
gathered here - and an excellent buy for the uninitiated -
although the first story may be a little on the confusing
side until near it's conclusion.
really appreciate this collection all you really need to know
is that Oracle was once Batgirl, before the Joker took away
the use of her legs with a well placed bullet, and that she
and her partner, Black Canary, fight crime. Oracle's identity
is kept a secret, even from her partner. The only contact
they have is through the latest state-of-the-art technology
which allows Oracle to see what Black Canary is up to, as
well as communicate verbally with her.
also thought that the finally story was a little on the disappointing
side. We have a Russian space vessel under the ocean, a collection
of prehistoric monsters, some mysterious female vigilantes
and an army of robots and the story never really does anything
with any of them. They are just there and under used - a clear
case of too many factors crammed into too small a story.
than that, this collection is entertaining.
