Dinah Drake, on the run from the government and lead singer for the Black Canary band trains her mate in martial arts and gun slinging to prevent them from getting hurt as the aliens follow their trail across the United States. But will Dinah’s training enough to protect her friends from the newfound spooks following her?

This issue was fun because it showed that Black Canary is competent and a super heroine at heart. I see this comic as Jem and the Holograms with a super singer. It seems to go for the same readership the IDW Publishing series is targeting. But there is no doubt that this is an action series and that Black Canary and her band will kick ass. That’s actually the problem. Why can’t there be one super hero comic where the supporting cast is not trained in hand to hand combat? I like the mystery developing with Ditto.

Ditto is cute. Annie Wu renders action well. I just don’t like the face she chose for Dinah. In some drawings, Dinah looks healthy and strong. In some, she looks meek and skinny. It feels weird as long time Black Canary fan to see her rendered this way. But I accept that I am not who this series is intended for. I find the background by the paparazzi blogger annoying. It’s not easy to read. Maybe if the format was improved it would be more fun to follow.
