Acquired Taste Book Club Week 9!
Welcome to the Acquired Taste Book Club! And I lied! Right through my teeth.
Last time, I said that we’d focus on Plastic Man next week, and here we are, more than a month later, not talking about Plastic Man. But trust me, you’re in for a treat anyway.
See, Quality Comics’ other major characters were Blackhawk Squadron, an international team of WWII-era fighter pilots, and one of them (actually introduced after the DC buyout, but still) is Lady Blackhawk, who in the ‘90s crossover event Zero Hour wound up in the present, where she joined the Birds of Prey, and Harley Quinn is getting a movie and they called that Birds of Prey for some reason, which all basically adds up to an excuse to make you read my favorite book!
And if you think that’s tenuous, watch me shoehorn Birds of Prey into Fawcett Week next week.
Reading Assignment: Birds of Prey (1999-) #75-80
- Well, we’re here for Zinda. What do you think of her in these issues?
- Which arc was your favorite?
- We see a few different artists’ work in these issues. Do you have a favorite?
- And also do you see why I love this series so much?! (If you say no, I won’t be mad, just disappointed.)
For questions or concerns, contact me @BatJamags.

Next week: No, seriously. You think I’m kidding? Just watch. We’ll even fit Harley in. Barely.
