Birds of Prey, Vol. 1: Of Like Minds - Gail Simone

birdsI really like the idea of having a woman writer focusing on some of the female characters (Oracle, Black Canary, and Huntress) of the DC universe and show how they can be every bit as butt-kicking as their male counterparts. Maybe it will draw in female readership and add respect to the heroes of that gender. Then again, maybe it will show how a bunch of girls get beat by a looney guy and sidekick, and one of the heroes is captured and all tied up--yum--, and they all wear outfits and have the body type to shame any Victoria Secrets model. I still can't decide if I like this title or Simone's work, but this is the second trade paperback I've gotten, so go figure. PS what ever happened to the TV show of the same name that I never got around to watching?
