Is this a novel? I haven’t seen it before but that cover art is great.
I have read this, though, and enjoyed it:
I love all the DC Kids graphic novels I’ve read so far. Lots of great art and character stuff, just without any content that would be less suitable for children, obviously. Comixology is having an insanely good sale on most DC graphic novels for Labor Day, including this one.
I took a peek at the Black Canary Breaking Silence book, but I’m just not into dystopia stuff as much, so didn’t finish it (though I did like the Catwoman Soulstealer entry in that series). Black Canary: Ignite, though, is one of my favorite comics of the past several years - so full of energy, appeal, and history blending without being awkward or forced. Really awesome stuff!
Kicking & Screaming:
I’m enjoying this so far. Cool blend of band life and metahuman stuff. Ditto’s my favorite. The stuff with Dinah’s husband is really sad. Seriously, is anyone in DC comics allowed to have a lasting and happy relationship?
Wonder Woman (2006):
I read this sometime last month. It’s a good series and the side mission with Dinah was a fun break from the main storyline. Love her and Diana as a team-up. I thought this was very funny:
He hunts criminals and wears a mask. Okay, it’s a cowl, but still.
Quick thoughts on these reads:
DC You Black Canary: Not a fan. Just can’t get into this book, try as I have.
Wonder Woman v3 #34: Love it! Gail Simone is awesome, and her Wonder Woman run is no exception (her Flash Giant and JLA Classified runs were great too, as was Wonder Woman/Conan and well, everything she’s done, really).
The Brave and The Bold v1 #107: Best book of the bunch, for me. Jim Aparo (the cover and interior artist of the above) is one of my all-time favorites that goes back to childhood.
When I got The Brave and The Bold #142 (which co-stars Black Canary, for any who might want more of her from this series) as part of a bundle of assorted DC comics in 1990, he artistically defined Batman and Aquaman for me, not only as a kid then, but all throughout the years since as well. Aparo is one of the all-time comic book GODS, and his work in #107 is but one of many textbook examples of why.
I have. It was good. I enjoyed the Wonder Woman and Catwoman books in the line much more, but for what the BC book was, it was good.
