Spinning out of the pages of BATGIRL, writer Brenden Fletcher (BATGIRL) and artists Annie Wu (HAWKGIRL) and Pia Guerra (Y: THE LAST MAN) present a fresh new take on one of DC Comics' fiercest female characters. Former crime fighter Dinah Lance is tearing up the music scene fronting the recently rechristened four-piece band Black Canary. Now using the alias D.D., Dinah and her one-of-a-kind voice are rocketing the band to stardom. But Black Canary has somehow become a magnet for trouble-their shows ending in brawls more often than not. If the group can't shake the violence following them, their fame-and their lives-might be cut short. To keep the band safe, the vigilante-turned-vocalist will have to face off against government agents, shadow-monsters, ninjas and one ticked off former lead singer! Collects BLACK CANARY #1-7 and DC SNEAK PEEK: BLACK CANARY #1.

I liked it...
But it was hard to read the text used in the comic, also the comics style was a bit difficult to understand.

What starts out as weird- why would a vigilante want to spend time in a high profile music band- gradually at least comes together as the story goes along. Largely this solo series was brought about as something for the character to do in between old and new runs on Birds of Prey. The art's not really to my liking, though that's more personal taste.

Stylish update of a DC Comics fan-favorite character places X-Files intrigue in the middle of an indie music scene right out of Love & Rockets. The story ensures Black Canary holds the spotlight as a confident heroine with a shadowy past. The fluid, colorful art (led by Annie Wu) is worth a look.

When will writers learn that graphic novels about music are really hard to pull off? I can see why the author wanted to get Dinah Lance into a band - thematically, it makes sense. But when she talks about fighting alongside Wonder Woman...and now she's in a really low-profile, how do you get there from here? And, for that matter, why? If she's trying to hide from a shadowy past, being a STAGE PERFORMER may not be the best choice. Still, giving this two stars for energetic artwork and good action sequences.
