What does the future hold for Oracle?
I love the cover. The cover reminds me of the usually cover art for Batgirl. I love the cover art for Batgirl for a while now and it works for Birds of Prey also.
The Birds of Prey believe that Oracle is dead. They fight the Calculator. We find out that Oracle is not really dead and only tells her motives to Stephanie Brown, Tim Drake, Dick Grayson, Bruce Wayne, and Charlie Radcliffe-Gage. She says she can’t help people anymore she needs to stay out of the dark.
Love the fight with Calculator I just thought it was perfectly written. Also Huntress’s dialogue was perfect because there are her thought bubbles which really say what Huntress would say and you can really say to yourself this is Huntress.
When I first heard of this story arc I expected great things and in every issue I could not wait to see what the next would bring. But then I read the ending of this issue and I don’t even know what Barbra is really doing with her future she is very cryptic. But it seemed like it was not meant to be cryptic. So, I was really disappointed to not really see a concrete ending. I was also expecting to have this issue to be all about Oracle and her past and what she has become but we had none of that she was hardly in the issue.
The art is different then it usually is and I think it is worse than the old art. I don’t think it is bad but it is really hard to compare with the old art because I thought the old art was perfect. But there was one scene that I loved with this art. Black Canary punched Calculator in the face and his tooth flies out and blood is everywhere. I was really impressed with that one scene of art.
Pick it up or not
