Flu season has hit Gotham City. Hard. Almost everyone is getting sick. Commissioner Gordan is sick and in the hospital as well as most of the Gotham City Police. So, Batgirl and co. are picking up the slack while trying to find out what or whom is making everyone sick.

What you need to know: The virus has taken out a lot of people in Gotham. Let me just say the cameos of well known names of Gotham will be pretty much useless this issue but nonetheless, the Birds of Prey are getting situated.  People are coming in from out of town, unlikely allies joining forces, Black Canary and her quick witted one liners; which are always something to look forward to.

What you’ll find out: Something in Gotham is making the people sick (the out of towners seems to be perfectly fine…unless they crack a Cinnabon joke directed at their girlfriend). And all jokes aside, it seems like Gotham is just the catalyst for what is coming to the rest of the world.

What just happened?! With the city’s population contaminated with the virus, the Birds of Prey must find out who’s behind it. They have enlisted, other heroes, some villains, even some legendries show up. This is issue definitely sets the tone for an awesome volume.

 

Rating 7/10

 

Final Thoughts:

The best part of Birds of Prey is getting to watch the characters intertwine with each other to find a common goal. Its cool to see how the values of Batgirl coincide with the mentalities of huntresses.  Also not just these two but other characters as well.  Where an individual character ideology is not lost, but used to find a common goal.
