Episode 54: The Stray


Feathers and Foes are back with another Pre New 52 adventure of Birds of Prey.  This one is called the Stray.  Mike McDonnell brings some interesting art to this one.  Chuck Dixon kind of has me confused with the characterization of Dinah, but I'm just going to ride with it.  Kind of like what Jason Bard is doing, while trying to remain alive.  Ra's Al Ghul and Talia are all in this one action packed book.  And I do mean action.  

Don't be shy.  We really would like to hear from you guys.

Wonder Woman Movie


The Artwork you see above is by David Anderson.  Following him instagram: David Anderson Drawing For Food.  http://drawing4food.tumblr.com drawingforfood.com  

Sarah of the birdsofpreysource.tumblr.com and Ashford, podcaster for the Wright On Network joined forces to talk about the spectacular Wonder Woman film.  After only one viewing for each of the hosts, many of their thoughts are still discombobulated in their heads, but the enthusiasm isn't curbed one bit.  

If you haven't seen the movie, please go and not support it.  The film is doing you a favor, not the other way around.  Watch the movie and then listen to our podcast.  We have spoilers all through out, so you don't want to start with us first.  And Gal Gadot, I know you're listening.  Ashford apologizes for pronouncing your name incorrectly.  

We would like to know what you think.  Here are just a couple of ways you can reach us.

Episode 52: The Big Romance


Issue 31 of Birds of Prey is one of those stories where the main characters (Oracle and Black Canary) are peripheral, and the guest, Jason Bard, is our protagonist.  You know Jason Bard, he was featured in issues 1-3 of Birds of Prey.  We covered those issues about a year ago exactly.  Jason was Bab's fiance.  This is a cool issue.  We have a dated gumshoe, France, and Barbara Gordon doing her thing where she is "mad" manipulating everyone.  And a special surprise ending that will make you want to read issue 32 immediately.  

www.wrightonnetwork.com has more of our programming.  

Go there for a review of the Wonder Woman movie.  Sarah of the burtinelli.tumblr.com and Ashford are going to analyze the movie.

Episode 50: Black Bird Rise






Celebrate with us, for the 50th episode of Feathers and Foes are upon us.  The Benson sisters have reached the conclusion of the 3 part saga of Black Bird, the villain who can steal powers from other metahumans.  Will she take Black Canary's powers?  The Sonic Cry!  You don't want to miss this one.

This is not a focal point of the story, but it's rather important.  If Gus is suffering from some type illness that is affecting his mental health, he has a right to keep it private; however, if his condition has the ability of positioning the Birds in danger out in the field, this is indeed a cause for concern.  This is a sensitive issue, and I am quite intrigued on how the Benson sisters tackle this issue.  Folks, we might be in a situation where we have only covered a thinly veiled surface.  Potentially, Gus might be an interesting character with layers and potential stories for the future.  Gus might be the beginning of cementing the Benson sisters' legacy, voice, and signature.

True to form, Huntress is always executed well  Her patience is limited when it comes to questioning Owen, which is quite endearing, for she cares for her friend, Black Canary.  Green Arrow, who makes an appearance in this one is not over bearing, and he's not projecting any of the unattractive qualities that otherwise turn people off.  In fact, he mentions that if Black Canary is under mind control, there is no way they can stop her.  He is not trying to save a defenseless Canary.  He just wants to know if she is OK.
Those of you who have listened to Feathers and Foes from our inception, you have noticed that Mark and Ashford take a lot of cheap shots at Nightwing, insinuating that he is some sort of sociopath.  We kid, Nightwing.  However, I thought it was a jerk move when he grabs Batgirl's grappling gun and takes her for a boost.  Hey Dick Greyson, Batgirl has top billing!  Don't you forget that.  In fact, Batgirl has the Batgirl book and Bat BOP.  Nightwing, you have a self-titled and another book where you are engulfed in an ensemble.  I'm just joking.  I love the art in the Titans book.  A LOT!
