Birds of Prey - Futures End #1

Writer: Christy Marx
Artist: Robson Rocha

"The New 52" has not been very generous to Black Canary. In her previous incarnation she used to be a bigger deal in the overall picture; now she has been relegated to a somewhat smaller corner of the DCU. This "Futures End" installment helps to correct that, at least in part. Years from now, Canary will take over Ra's Al Ghul's League of Assassins, and turn it into a force for good and justice. For a self-contained story, "The Red League" efficiently covers a lot of ground, and brings the title to full circle with one final encounter between the estranged Dinah and Barbara, just like it happened in the first issue of the series. Robson Rocha delivers with beautiful artwork, while Chris Sotomayor's colors provide the perfect ambiance; red has never looked better, and the dark blue hues immerse the reader in the nocturnal setting of the story.
