Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I’m digging all the ‘bird’ references with Hawk n Dove and Penguin.

  2. I wsn’t thoroughly impressed by the first issue but it was the first so I’ll still check this out.

  3. The first issue wasn’t the bestest thing ever, but it was fun. I’m in it for a while, we’ll see how this goes. Mariah Benes? I wonder if that’s Ed’s wife doing colors.

  4. i couldnt even finish the first issue. Dropped.

  5. Light week so maybe.

  6. It seems like it’s been a long time sine #1.  Was there a delay on this or do I just read too many comics now?

  7. @zattaric: No delay.

  8. Is that description correct – Benes already needs help finishing the issue? (I see that there is a fill-in for #5 in the DC solicits released today)

  9. @PraxJarvin I believe it’s his sister, there’s a Benes brother out there too who’s also an artist.

    I’m looking forward to this, I thought the art last issue was some of Ed’s better work.

  10. @Torippi It just says "Art By" that could mean Benes on pencils, Melo on inks and Mariah on colors. It could also mean a fill-in. My money is on the first one.

    @CAM Ahh, cool. Didn’t know that. Thanks. 

  11. Oh hells yeah! The first issue of this new series hit all the right notes for me, as it had a great "We’re getting the band back together" vibe. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, I’m totally ready for some more awesome Simone & Benes goodness.

  12. First issue was pretty damn good. Can’t wait to read it. 

  13. I had no previous experience with the BoP, which may be the reason the first issue left me cold. I love Simone on Secret Six so I will give it another shot.

  14. I agree that the last issue was middle of the road.  However, there were some great moments — most of them involving Lady Blackhawk.  Asking if Hank is ‘fancy’ — Brilliant!!

  15. Gail simone really gets it in how to write a first issue that can interest people to read the rest of the story. This should be pick of the week hands down

  16. Issue 1 was nowhere near middle of the road

  17. This issue definitely has two different artists, and the inking isn’t quite as clear as it was in the first issue.  Still, the story is great, especially if you’re familiar with Simone’s ealier BOP run!

  18. Another solid reason. Not quite as enjoyable as the first issue, and the premise isn’t exactly new… but I’m hooked. I actually really liked Hawk this issue, too. 4/5

  19. Did anyone on the West Coast get it? My shop didn’t.

  20. My shop didn’t have it either, in SF.

  21. @NawidA and ErronSF – I was going to ask the same exact thing. Comic Relief in Berkeley didn’t have it, either. Looks like one of those West Coast Diamond delays. What the hell is up with that? Can someone more knowledgable than I about comics distribution explain why this happens at least once or twice a year?

  22. @Paradidle: Different warehouses serve different parts of the country. If there’s a problem at one then only the area that that warehouse covers would be effected.

  23. Yeah, we didn’t it in Vegas either. My LCS guy says next week.

  24. So, am I the only one who thinks he know who this "Jade Canary" is?  I’m can’t wait to see if I’m right!

  25. @ zattaric

    You mean White Canary. Jade Canary was a name Lady Shiva used One Year Later. Though I admit, I still thought it was Shiva at first. -_-

    But now I have other suspicions about White Canary’s identity as well…

  26. We didn’t get it here in Rancho Cucamonga, CA either. 🙁

  27. Still a little lost (no previous BoP experience) but I like the descent into chaos in this one. Not a fan of Benes though.
