Who is reading Black Canary: Ignite? I just bought it and am excited to read it
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.
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.
