Birds of Prey | Book Club | TEAMUP: Gotham City Garage #1-12

Hello there, birdwatchers. and welcome to 2022 and the second year of our cozy little bird club! :00_black_canary: We’re hitting pause on our readthrough of the legendary ongoing BOP series to bring you this fun and fresh look at some of our favorite characters! Join us, won’t you, in Gotham City Garage! :muscle:

We have Black Canary, we have Batgirl, we have Supergirl, we have Wonder Woman, we have Big Barda… Come one, come all! :raised_hands:

This month, we’ll read the first 12 issues of this 24 issue digital-first series. They’re a pretty quick read:

:books: This activity will be running ALL month long!

We’ll take the first two weeks (1/10 - 1/23) to read, then discuss during the last week (1/24 -1/30). Did you enjoy them? Have you read them before? What did you think of the dialogue or artwork? Anything about the reading (or characters) you’d like to discuss—drop your thoughts below when you’re ready. :purple_heart: See ya soon!

This will be a very intersting one. I love the aesthetic of the series.

I mean just looking at Canary’s pants on the cover above makes this a 10/10 for me! :laughing:

I’d never heard of this series or the collectibles line it’s based on, so I Googled it. I had to be picked up off the floor after seeing the first thing that came up :heart_eyes::

Then I saw how much it was going for on eBay and had to be picked up off the floor again. :moneybag: :money_with_wings:

Sad I’ll never be able to own that statue, but Great Hera, she’s gorgeous. :00_wonder_woman_gold:

Whew, that really is a good one. Pretty pricey on Ebay indeed :grimacing:

I do wonder what’s up with DC, creating really popular statuettes like that that clearly have some demand, but letting the line die so that the price is incredibly high.

I’m mildly obsessed w/ all of the statues from this series, lol, but yeah… that price tag. :neutral_face:Do they not realize how many of us would buy these or something?? Like, WUT?

Hey, Diana. :full_moon_with_face: :00_wonder_woman_gold::black_heart:

And since we’re talking about them, here’s a few more!

That Catwoman is somethin’ else! I really wish they’d made a Spoiler one - I feel Steph really could have gone with this grungepunk aesthetic! :slight_smile:

So many midriffs. :eyes: :sparkling_heart:

All of those are beautiful, but Selina’s gets bonus points for the cat. :sweat_smile:

Because I have no chill, I didn’t stop with issue #11 and read the whole series. :sweat_smile:

I don’t usually like dystopian fiction, but I really enjoyed this reimagining of the DC characters. It was a very entertaining read. Looking forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

So there’s Bombshells, Ame-Comi Girls, and Gotham City Garage…are there any other comic series based on DC collectible lines? :thinking:
