Welcome, everyone, to a special edition of
Origins & Team ups! We’ve worked our way here—it’s time to begin our series read through! Birds of Prey
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: …and watch the government try to figure out who Oracle is- lol, she’s smarter than you, 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

Birds of Prey: The Complete Chronology
Hello friends! I am starting a new topic from my original one here: All About Birds of Prey Comic Books This will be a wiki post that anyone can edit and the goal is to have the most complete reading list of all issues featuring the Birds of Prey (or just Oracle, Black Canary, and Huntress, since they’re the three main characters).
I already started work on this project a long time ago but my progress was stalled when the resource I was using wa…
Not sure who the
Birds of Prey are? Here’s a quick crash course!
this’ll be my first time reading it!
Stop by whenever you’re ready!
I’ll try to join in! I’ve never read it either.
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:

Breaking Hearts and Faces??
Ps. I have something for you, btw.
Going to drop it off as soon as I’m back!
Jk Never worry about that here
@biff_pow. Whenever you’re ready or feel like talkin—go for it.
It’s a great tagline. (Bonus points for the Gal gif lol).
Ooh, okay! I’m excited!
Even though I have a feeling this means I’m about to get even further behind in my reading.
It’s a totally appropriate reaction to being kicked by Black Canary. Other acceptable reactions are “oh yeah!” and “thank you!”
@Angel212 Unfortunately, yes! That’s exactly what it means! Many of us are in that same situation, so: Welcome!
