Title: Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey
Author: Kelley Puckett, Paul Dini, Chuck Dixon
Genre: Graphic Novel
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: December 17, 2019
THE FUTURE OF GOTHAM BEGINS WITH THEM!
In celebration of the feature film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) comes HARLEY QUINN & THE BIRDS OF PREY! Meet the characters that inspired the film in six classic tales starring: Harley Quinn, Black Canary, Huntress, Renee Montoya, Cassandra Cain, and Black Mask.
This is a collection of comics about the characters who make up the Birds of Prey. These are previously released comics which give a short tale about each character.
Some of the comics give a complete story in the short comic. I really liked the comics about Harley Quinn and Black Canary, because these were complete stories. Some of the others were just part of an ongoing story, such as “Mark of Cain, Part One,” which gives an introduction to Cassandra Cain. That was the first part of a story about her, and it ended abruptly so I don’t know what happened in the rest of it.
I love Harley Quinn, so I especially liked the comic about her. It was part of the Detective Comics series, and I had never read it before. One little detail I liked was that Harley’s prisoner number was 381993, which is also the date of her first appearance in the comics, August 3, 1993.
This is a good introduction to the characters of Birds of Prey. I’m excited to watch the upcoming movie.
