Looks great! How are you linking it, how’s the art? I’ll have to pick it up soon. I’m loving these new graphic novels DC is doing.

I might be a little biased because you give me anything Black Canary and I’m most likely going to love it.

I like the art. It’s got kind of an Archie/BOOM Studios kind of vibe. I love that Black Canary is in a band like in the New 52.

I personally cannot wait to read this! I picked it up last week and it’s on the top of my (much to big) ‘to read’ pile.

Well, here’s the story. I saw this, and I saw Harley Quinn: breaking glass. Can you guess?

Honestly this is one of the best graphic novels I’ve ever read!

I’m only a few pages in on Ignite, but it’s quite good so far. The art has a nice pop to it.

Finished reading this on Sunday and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the nods given to previous Black Canary continuity and a certain Emerald Archer. I also really like this Larry Lance.

I fully support DC doing these OGNs, always down for new takes on characters. But personally, I’m mixed on them. I loved the Harley one, mostly liked the Catwoman one, and couldn’t finish the Raven one.

The art on this Black Canary looks great though.

Mera: Tidebreaker remains my favorite of the Zoom and Ink titles so far.

I wanted to like the first Super Sons OGN, but I didn’t. The art was fine, but I wasn’t too into the story. “Ian” does serve as an interesting nickname for Damian, however.

I’m a bit behind on Ignite, but I’m still enjoying it quite a bit.

I haven’t read any of the other books. The Mera one looked good. I just don’t know if I’d be willing to pay that much for something I’m most likely going to only read once.

@Vroom I like the commentary in Black Canary: Ignite. I couldn’t put the book down once the story got going.

@nu52 All of the Zoom and Ink books are available on Hoopla for free. It’s a great way to try something before you buy it.

None of the libraries near me are on Hoopla, unfortunately.

Did you make a valiant effort to bribe them into the Hoopla fold?

I mean…did you ask nicely if they’d join Hoopla? Yeah, I meant that. :wink:

These books look great. Definitely on my todo list.

I read this last night.
I enjoyed the story but the art was a put off…childish and sloppy.

I enjoyed the story too. I would buy a sequel to it. As for the art, it is for children/middle school kids. I didn’t think it was sloppy, just deliberately stylized.

Yes…I agree with your point.

I have just finished Black Canary: Ignite. I will echo that I didn’t enjoy the art style but I am not the target audience for this book. The art reminded me of many current cartoons, so this has specific demographic in mind. The story was a lot of fun and kept me interested throughout the entire book. This is the second YA graphic novel I have read and am enjoying this line a lot more than a 37 year old should.

These stories have really surpassed my expectations. You get new elements, but they also respect the history and the characters. They’re a lot of fun and it’s nice getting an entire cohesive story without having to wait for the trade or stories being stretched for a trade.

I’m hoping this book gets a sequel.

This was really good but I think The Oracle Code was a little better. Being a huge Birds of Prey fan, it only made sense for the Black Canary book to be next. I will be picking more of these up whenever I can.
