Batgirl and the Birds of Prey 6

Feathers and Foes are back with the conclusion to the Who is Oracle saga.  Fenice and Santo are on the loose.  Birds vs. Snakes!  Cops and Mobsters.  This is the ultimate Gotham story.  And yes, Gus is still fanboying out!

Check out this episode!

Finally the finale.  Am I right?  Ever since this saga began, I, personally, have been waiting for it to end.  This starts off where the Birds are not a unit, which makes total sense, but I'm ready for the three of these heroes in the field, taking out bad guys, and making the world right.  Who is Oracle is quite an ambitious story line.  Although interesting, I spent most of my effort just paying attention to the Birds.  Black Canary, walking straight out the ashes of her new 52 run picks up right where she left off here.  A snotty nose punk rocker who actually knows how to kick butt.  #Rad.

This was a Huntress story, which should make me happy, but I am disappointed with the execution of how this character is coming off on the page.  Allow me to correct myself, the character is written fine, but the back story with Fenice is really turning me off.  Plus, now that I'm reading Grayson, I'm really falling in love with that interpretation of the the new 52 version of Huntress.  You can't always get what you want.  Mick Jagger has never been wrong.

The art in this book with Roge Antonio is not to my liking, but in a way, I believe fits the tone of this book.  Birds of Prey back in the day has a lot of iconic, bigger than life art of the Birds.  Rebirth has none of that in my opinion, which is not a bad thing.  However, I want Batgirl and the Birds of Prey to be a bestseller for DC Comics, which is not the case at this moment.
