I liked it...
But it was hard to read the text used in the comic, also the comics style was a bit difficult to understand.

What starts out as weird- why would a vigilante want to spend time in a high profile music band- gradually at least comes together as the story goes along. Largely this solo series was brought about as something for the character to do in between old and new runs on Birds of Prey. The art's not really to my liking, though that's more personal taste.

Stylish update of a DC Comics fan-favorite character places X-Files intrigue in the middle of an indie music scene right out of Love & Rockets. The story ensures Black Canary holds the spotlight as a confident heroine with a shadowy past. The fluid, colorful art (led by Annie Wu) is worth a look.

When will writers learn that graphic novels about music are really hard to pull off? I can see why the author wanted to get Dinah Lance into a band - thematically, it makes sense. But when she talks about fighting alongside Wonder Woman...and now she's in a really low-profile, how do you get there from here? And, for that matter, why? If she's trying to hide from a shadowy past, being a STAGE PERFORMER may not be the best choice. Still, giving this two stars for energetic artwork and good action sequences.
