    The adventures of Black Canary's team of super-heroines continu


    The adventures of Black Canary's team of super-heroines continue in <i>Birds of Prey, Vol. 2: Your Kiss Might Kill</i>
    . The story takes off from shortly after the first book, during the “Court of Owls” story line that stretches across the Batman Family books.

    Like with <i>Batgirl: Vol.2</i>
    this graphic novel was more than just a little disjointed. It was a mish-mash of the main plot, a “Court of Owls” one-shot, and the issue #0 of the comic after the 2011 reboot that began the “New 52”. Unlike the second volume of the <i>Batgirl</i>
    comic, this did not detract from the enjoyment of the story at all. The writers did a far better job of integrating the various snippets into one coherent tale.

    The only problem I had was that the characters were out and out so incredibly stupid. They fell, hook, line and sinker for a trap by their “team mate” Poison Ivy, and then initially gave into her. Only when she went “too far” in her actions, and then proceeded to answer their objections by mocking them over their own pasts, did they truly grow a backbone. The Birds' stubbornness verging into stupidity and willingness to back down and allow Ivy to bully them, was very much out of character.

    That was the part I did not like. What I did like, other than the coherency of the story, was how some of the backgrounds and personalities of the characters were given a reason, post-reboot. The simple questions that one may have wondered about, but weren't important enough to ask, were answered. It may not be the most important thing for a comic to handle, but it was certainly nice. The background of the story also means the title may refer not just to the evil eco-terrorist Ivy, but to one of the heroes in her own tragic past.

    Not a big fan of how the characters were kind of made a bit weaker for this tale, but still enjoyed the story overall.

    This book was REALLY good and the night of the owls tie-in makes sense in volume 3, the ending of this volume is CRAZY!
