Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #7

The Birds of Prey fight the Zodiac Master who is predicting crimes that he intends to carry on himself. Meanwhile, Barbara Gordon becomes very curious about the real estate agents who sold her the Gotham Tower which is her secret headquarter. What sinister plan do they have for her Gotham Tower?

The Bensons felt a need to introduce a quiet story here that would be easy for new readers to jump into. While it’s a great idea, I wish that they would have pursued some of the other subplots that they introduced earlier, like the mystery surrounding Dinah’s mom. This story is essentially a filler story to also give a few roots to the Huntress in Gotham City. It’s a fun story though.


Claire Roe’s lines are very angular which looks a bit odd when applied to women. There is a school of thought about drawing that women should always be drawn with soft curvy lines not to age them too much. The characters still look great but they are not gorgeous or as appealing as they could be. Colourist Allen Passalaqua has decided to make the Huntress a very dark Mediterranean. I like that DC Comics is willing to acknowledge that all Italians are not pearl white.

Rating: 7.5 /10
