Birds of Prey: The Battle Within – Gail Simone

How can you go wrong with a team of pin-up girls kicking butt? Simone has the crippled hacker, Oracle, flown around by the anachronistic Lady Blackhawk to such exotic locals as Singapore and Kansas to allow Black Canary and Huntress to investigate less restrained vigilantes and infiltrate crime syndicates. It’s good, straightforward, comic book heroic fun (plus titillation if I didn’t mention that). Almost four years later (June 2012) I reread this collection with that nagging feeling that I both read and wrote about it. Still enjoyed it greatly, but I must confess that I have a hard time tracking this title down and keeping track of the order. Every think about putting volume 1 etc on the spines? Of course not.
