Some thoughts about Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #10
Black Canary has fallen for Blackbird's influence and now she's willing to fight her loved ones unless they can do something about it.
Well, this issue compensated for the flaws of the last one for the most part.
Julie and Shawna Benson conclude this little storyline by focusing on character interaction and strong action and is successful in that regard. The characterization continues to be quite pleasent with all of the different characters acting adequately and showing how much they care about each other. I have a few problems with how Ollie and Dinah's relationship is handled though although to be fair that's mostly because of the misguiden depiction they receive in Ben Percy's Green Arrow.
Plus, there are a lot of solid moments that reference other series particularly Grayson with mentions of Hypnos and Tiger which shows that the writers are fans of that era.
Roge Antonio remains in art duties and his work is quite appealing with a clean style and expressive characters.
Solid and full of content chapter, good read overall.
