Totally took me by (positive) surprise! (5 stars)
I honestly wasn't expecting to like this one in spite of all the praise it's been getting. I've never gravitated toward Black Canary as a character but I figured this was a good place to start giving her a shot. At first I was sure I was right and she just wasn't going to work for me... but as the plot progressed and the characters fleshed out I found myself falling in love with this story arc and the fantastic characters.
If you've been looking for a superheroine to start following this is a little edgy but a lot of fun and I loved the family-of-your-choosing feel of it. I'd definitely recommend!
