Overview

Black Canary. Zatanna Zatara. Two of the DC Universe's brightest stars join forces to combat a deadly new threat-a chilling supernatural foe that preys on their weaknesses and unleashes their awesome powers against each other.

A year ago, Black Canary infiltrated a gang of female criminals set to pull a dangerous heist at a Las Vegas casino. Its leader was skilled in hand-to-hand combat and with more than a passing interest in the occult, specifically black magic, one nasty customer. Rather than be taken by Canary or the law, she went to her death, vowing she would get revenge on Canary and her own former gang members. Now, a year to the day later, death stalks those gang members, and Canary must turn to her friend Zatanna to help investigate.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
06/16/2014
When her old foe begins killing victims from beyond the grave, Black Canary, a street-level crime fighter with scant supernatural expertise, enlists spell caster Zatanna to fight magic with magic in this snappy team-up of two long-running DC characters. Perhaps paired merely for their shared proclivity toward fishnets, the two heroines nonetheless jibe well together on the page, thanks to a wealth of charisma and candor seldom found in expository superhero storytelling. Dini, brings an animator’s energy to the plot and presentation, adhering to a brisk pace to tackle the episodic narrative, and Quinones (FF) provides a polished and especially expressive style. Quinones is particularly adept at depicting Bloodspell’s comely leads, giving them celebrity good-looks but avoiding gratuitous eye candy—another common failing of the superhero genre. By steering clear of typical pitfalls, the book makes for a pleasing standout and a welcome departure from the publisher’s usual output. (June)

    Black Canary, Zatanna, and crew are up to mischief as well as fighting crime.

    Comical/light-hearted graphics are used to tell the tale and develop characters since there is no dialogue or text.

    Overall, a fun read.
