Birds of Prey #12

Duane Swierczynski and Cliff Richards serve up "Birds of Prey" #12 with a healthy mix of drama, betrayals, and a potential new drive for the title's second year.

Birds of Prey #11

"Birds of Prey" #11 begins with the statement "This is the turning point." The plot delivers on that promise, but the big reveal feels like nothing new and the art is a misshapen mashup of two styles.

It's hard to shake the feeling that this isn't "Doctor Manhattan: The Series," but it's still entertaining.

Captain Atom #3

"Captain Atom" is pulling a "superhero as deity" storyline, but so far it's not new territory.

Birds of Prey #11

Huntress and Catman work together to save a hostage and almost take some time to get close, but instead push each other further away, perhaps deliberately.

Batgirl #14

Supergirl stops by to visit with Batgirl and the dynamic duo take in a movie, fight some Draculas (yes, it is supposed to be plural) and have a pillow fight. Pretty standard fare for this series.
