Birds of Prey | Book Club Wks: 27–30 | TEAM ORIGINS | Series Read, Pt 1: Birds of Prey 1-11

Welcome, everyone, to a special edition of Origins & Team ups! We’ve worked our way here—it’s time to begin our Birds of Prey series read through! :tada:


We’ll be reading two arcs at a time, and continuing w/ Spotlights & Origins as our intermissions until we reach the end—now let’s go commit some espionage and fight crime w/ our very own dynamic duo: :00_black_canary: :birds_of_prey_club_oracle:…and watch the government try to figure out who Oracle is- lol, she’s smarter than you, :smirk: so goodluck w/ that.


PART ONE: Birds of Prey (1999) 1-11


This activity will be running ALL month long!

We’ll take the first two weeks (7/5-7/18) to read, then discuss during weeks 3 & 4 (7/19-8/1). Did you enjoy it? Have you read it before? What did you think of the dialogue and artwork? Anything about the reading you’d like to discuss—drop your thoughts below when you’re ready. :purple_heart: See ya soon!

I have been meaning to give these a read. It will be great reading them with the group!

Neat! Of the issues here, the only one I have read before is issue 8, aka the one that every Dick/Babs shipper has read, so it should be interesting to see how this holds up.

I’ve already started to read a little bit and so far my reaction has been: Oh, Jason Bard! …Jason, no! …Yay, Jason! …Jason NOOOO!

I hope not to be disruptive, since I don’t know how to book club, and this is from extracurricular reading (Black Canary/Oracle: Birds of Prey), but I just need to express how much I love this guy’s reaction to being kicked by Black Canary

@Angel212 I had a similar reaction the first time I saw it! :laughing:

Breaking Hearts and Faces??

It’s a great tagline. (Bonus points for the Gal gif lol).

Ooh, okay! I’m excited! :grin: Even though I have a feeling this means I’m about to get even further behind in my reading. :sweat_smile:

It’s a totally appropriate reaction to being kicked by Black Canary. Other acceptable reactions are “oh yeah!” and “thank you!”

Did Barbara really take a break to answer an email while Dinah was actively being captured???

@Angel212 Unfortunately, yes! :laughing: That’s exactly what it means! Many of us are in that same situation, so: Welcome! :hugs:
