I have read Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell for the first time and am extremely impressed with it. While I haven’t read too much of Zatanna, I have read a lot of Black Canary’s adventures. I have been wanting to read this since I found out about it but this title is currently not available on DCU.
One thing that really stood out was when Dinah and Zatanna were at the toy store and Dinah explains how the Justice League toys profits all go to a charity. I was actually wondering about that when I was reading Superman: Up In The Sky as a Superman toy was featured heavily.
This book plays out more like a movie than a normal comic book arc, which is a great thing. The opening scenes of Black Canary fighting in Las Vegas were cinematic and really brought me into the story. I also liked the way Zatanna was introduced in Bloodspell which lead to the first meeting of Black Canary and Zatanna.
The overall adventure of having to stop a ghost was perfect for Zatanna but it did leave Black Canary kind of helpless. She wasn’t able to use her martial arts or scream to real effect. I think that is the only thing that I didn’t like. Zatanna was excellent and was the highlight in the final fight. This book is filled with cameos from characters ranging from Granny Goodness to Superman.
Has anyone else read this book? If you did, what did you think?
