Not sure if this is the right place to put this but I was wondering why BoP is kind of under-represented. I love 'em, don't you? Who else reads the comic? Who hates them? Who really doesn't care?

Dern... I thought this was going to be a Klingon-related post! Who are the Birds of Prey???

[Just kidding...]

I've never picked up an issue of BoP, but the cover art for the series is SMOKIN' hot. May it last for years to come.

#3 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

The art in general is gorgeous! You should try reading it sometime, the stories are good too.

#4 Posted by GoocherLee (365 posts) - - Show Bio

I already get like 30 comics a month.

I need to scale back, not add. :)

Maybe when one of the mini-series I'm subscribed to ends... we'll see.

#5 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

See, I only actually subscribe to BoP and Nightwing with the occassional Supergirl for when I fancy it. I'm real new to comics, only got introduced to them recently.

I read BoP for a long time mostly for the batman storylines. They weren't horrible books, but I much preffered Catwoman at the time. I haven't picked either up recently though.

The new storyline is good and I love the way they're doing Huntress now. She's got so much more character than the Huntress/Batman/Question cross they did a while ago.

I've read it off and on. It usually comes down to buying way too many comics. It's also not on my pull list. If I hear of something coming up or there's a really interesting cover, I'll pick it up. I'd like to read it more often as I feel Barbara should have a bigger role in the DCU but some of the stories are just so-so. The art is usually nice to look at. But sometimes it gets pretty interesting.

Hey nice! Definitely an image I can appreciate. Babs is a very cool character though. Personally I like her with Dick.

That sounds pretty bad after a picture that seemingly shows some girl-on-girl action.

Hey how 'bout a threesome? ::laughs:: sorry, guess you can work out where I'm coming from

#12 Posted by G-Man (18915 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm sure Dick would have the stamina for that.

I've been reading BoP for awhile and I'm still enjoying it.

#16 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

It's what Lady Blackhawk called them when she first joined, Babs kinda adopted it after a while. It's not even as if any of the others are birds, Oracle and Huntress aren't, but there ya go

#17 Posted by Thee Arch Angel Micheal (443 posts) - - Show Bio

Why are they called Birds of Prey? A Canary isnt a bird of prey is it?

#18 Posted by Thee Arch Angel Micheal (443 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanks. Is Canary even a member any more?

#19 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

No, she quit and went to the JSA I think. Thank god :D

#20 Posted by Thee Arch Angel Micheal (443 posts) - - Show Bio

JSA,or JLA? I think she went to the JLA. I take it you dont care much for her :)

#21 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

Can't remember which one but no, she drives me nuts. I read the one where she packed and left and it was just a "poor me, what a hard life I've lead" pity fest

#22 Posted by Thee Arch Angel Micheal (443 posts) - - Show Bio

lol, thats funny.

#23 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanks :D Maybe the kid she's adopted will turn into an assassin as planned and finally do DC a favour

When did she get a kid?

#25 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

Not entirely sure on that one but she adopted a child who was being trained as an assassin. That's why she left BoP so she could raise the kid properly. Not sure how the hell that works with being in JLA/JSA but hey-ho.

#26 Posted by zero edge (3696 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think it was exactly explained what she's doing, one minute she's quit fighting to raise the kid, the next in the JLA comics she's fighting along side them.

#27 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

That's coz she's a muppet :D I have a real thing against Black Canary, she annoys the hell out of me

#28 Posted by zero edge (3696 posts) - - Show Bio

Lol, a muppet.. that's a funny comparison XD

#29 Posted by wwbwbgohbc (19 posts) - - Show Bio

It's the JLA and she's the chairperson, as to why the flip that'll be explained in a Black Canary mini this summer, long with her answer to Green Arrow's asking her to marry him in his up coming issue 75

#30 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Canary still annoys the hell out of me. She's vapid and shallow. Whatever happens this summer, it'll be a pity-fest, I'll bet ya. Oh and reason number one that I don't read JLA: she's the chairperson.

#31 Posted by wwbwbgohbc (19 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah, I don't like that she left BoP for JLA, it seemed cold hearted given her friendship with Babs. I liked her in the book though

#32 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

I've never liked her. She's the kind of character that has a hard life and expects the world to strike up the violins for her.

#33 Posted by Final Arrow (24388 posts) - - Show Bio

SHE SUCKS

#34 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

nah, black canary's cool...

i mean the origonal one, one that founded the JLA... not too sure who the new one is though...

she was really anoying in the BOP TV series though lol

#35 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

The new one's her daughter, isn't she?

#36 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

dunno... might have to actually look into that

M

#37 Posted by Walkingstone (10723 posts) - - Show Bio

She's one of those characters that I deliberately leave out of my fan-fics.

#38 Posted by wwbwbgohbc (19 posts) - - Show Bio

The current BC is the daughter of the JSA/JLA BC. She grew up with her mother and the guys in the JSA, became a hero behind her mother's back with Wildcat's help.

And we all know what kind of "help" Wildcat likely gave. He is a tom cat after all.

LOL, yes Wildcat is a bit of a player, but when it comes to Dinah he's more like a Dad. (PG, Catwoman, and Polly on the other hand were so not daughter like to him. lol)

And the letters stand for Wonder Woman BatWoman BatGirl Oracle Huntress Black Canary
