Black Canary may not be missing from Birds of Prey for long

The Philadelphia Daily News has an article about Birds of Prey (found via Chuck Dixon on his own board), which now reached its 100th issue. Regarding Dinah Lance leaving the team, they say:
This reached its apex in the first arc in DC's One Year Later event (Nos. 92-95), which had Black Canary and deadly assassin Lady Shiva live in each other's worlds - with Black Canary learning how to become the deadliest of the deadly while Shiva learned how to fight without killing. The arc ended with Black Canary deciding she did not want to take the final step that would make her a killer like Shiva or even as dark as Batman. To top it off, she took in a girl named Sin who was going to be trained to be the next Shiva, a decision that led to her leaving the team in issue No. 99 so she could be a mother to the child.

Issue No. 100 has a backup story featuring Black Canary (which also serves to give the lowdown on the characters for newer readers), so it is possible the heart of the team will not be absent for long.
Well, I should hope not. There was a bit of news on CBR that Dinah may be appearing in a miniseries of her own soon. She's the main reason the series began in the first place, and without her, it would be absurd.

I own five TPBs of Birds of Prey, one with Dixon's stories, four with Simone's, plus one preceding miniseries and a couple of back issues.

Open trackbacks: Blue Star Chronicles, It it Just Me, NIF, Point Five.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
