Batgirl and the Birds of Prey 3

Check out this episode!

Birds of Prey #3 gives us some fun flashbacks about the Black Canary, navigating through her young adult life as an orphan in foster care, a teenager learning martial arts, to a young woman becoming a master.  In a way, the flashback sequences sort of condensed some of the back story from New52.  
We also get to see all three, Batgirl, Black Canary, and the Huntress work together, reluctantly or not, in this issue, which was quite fun.  The Benson sisters even threw in a Mariachi band to boot.  

Mafioso types, snake men, and verbal low blows among forced friendships are all packed into this book.

 The art team really went to town on this book.  Claire Roe with the pencils and Allen Passalaqua complement each other quite well with the sequence when the police department, The Birds, and the Snake battle in the light, dark, and shadows.
