    Azzarello isn't very convincing as writer either. The only positive part is A. The Birds are back, and B. Luppachino on art.

    I think when most people think of Helena's classic costume, they think of the Jim Lee look with the exposed belly midriff.

    Although I do wonder how long New 52 Huntress will stick around. I mean, points for diversity, but it seems to have caught on as much as black Deadshot did.

    Yeah, I really have wonder who thought it was a smart idea to put Azzarelo on a predominantly female title mainly about female empowerment.

    But given how he wrote Batgirl in the Killing Joke movie, it's probably for the best Babs isn't in this.

    The writing was also generally not the strongest for the runs where she was Batgirl on the team.

    You make a good point. If Babs isn't on the team, at least Azzarello can't tarnish her. I'm just really worried how Black Canary is going to end up after he's done with her. Harley Quinn being on this team is just plain silly. I like Harley but this just isn't the place for her.

    The preview art even makes it look like she's trying to steal Dinah's fishnets look .

    It's like World's Finest without Clark and Bruce. Just my opinion.
    If we were not trying to appease comic book store owners and those gatekeepers who act like only certain characters should be in books. We wouldn't have this issue.

    All you hear is Batman or Superman or Harley or others sale so they deserve to be SHOVED in everyone's faces. Then folks want to look SHOCKED when sales are not as high as they should be.

    It gets to a point of too much with certain folks.

    Now this is begin done because of that movie and the writer hired-is there for a reason.

    For all the complaints about his New 52 Wonder Woman run-at least in my city that book SOLD and it was the only New 52 book that had a long waiting list to read it at the libraries. A waiting list that is still going on today.

    I don't think sales will be an issue with this book especially when it comes to trades.

    12 issues tops. It's only going to be a thing until the Birds of Prey movie tanks. Then it will dissolve into the shadows of publication never to be spoken of again. or at least I hope.

    Azzarello referring to Huntress's baggage makes sense with the character, but what baggage of Black Canary do you think he is referring to? Because the only thing I can think of that he'll possibly bring up is her being tortured in Longbow Hunters.

    Birds of Prey? Excellent. Lupacchino? Awesome! Harley Quinn? Oh, no thank you, nevermind.

    So close, DC. So close.

    There's no way that's still canon, is it?

    Well, I guess it won't be too much longer before DC puts Harley Quinn on the Justice League, to mess with dynamics and be the ONE "put together" person while everyone else on the team has "baggage." I think DC should change Harley Quinn's name to "Shoehorn."

    And it may seem like I'm kidding, but I'm really not. They already have/had her as one of the "Superhero Girls" in those animated YouTube shorts.

    The BoP movie isn't going to tank...

    ...and at least they're not calling it "Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey" like they did with Batgirl, completely disrespecting the other members of the team (especially Dinah).

    No, but I think they did that for a recent re-release of the Gotham City Sirens trade.

    (Although, to be honest, it wouldn't have been so surprising for them to have done that here).

    The preview is pretty violent. Someone just gets straight up beheaded!
