Batgirl and the Birds of Prey: Fandom Turned Frightening

Ah, social media. If you're reading this, chances are you're familiar with the myriad ways internet users can share the moments of their lives with the world. Social media offers a platform for users to share everything from occasions of import, like weddings, to less grand but still important occurrences like trying new desserts. Because of social media, we connect in some way with more people than ever before—more so than we did in the days of message boards and chat rooms.

Of a Feather: Julie and Shawna Benson Soar with Batgirl and the Birds of Prey

It was just about a year ago that BATGIRL AND THE BIRDS OF PREY was announced as a part of Rebirth and DC fans were introduced to its sibling writing team of Julie and Shawna Benson. Since then, we’ve seen the newly reunited Batgirl, Black Canary and Huntress take on—and eventually team up with—a slightly shady new Oracle, outsmart a crime lord who happened to be Helena’s mother and go toe-to-toe, figuratively speaking, with the sinister Snake Gang. And that was just in the very first story arc!

The Flash: Let's Talk About Gypsy

This season on The Flash, we are getting a lot of great development of characters that are not Barry Allen. It has been a ton of fun seeing characters like Caitlin Snow (and her alter-ego Killer Frost), come into their own. In tonight’s episode, “Dead or Alive,” there was a heavy focus on Cisco finally coming to an equilibrium with his Vibe powers and stepping up to protect HR from being taken back to Earth-19 by a bounty hunter named…Gypsy!

Yes, she does wear a costume inspired by the traditional gypsy dress that you are imagining in your mind right now.

The Archer and the Canary: The Not-So-Secret History of Oliver Queen and Dinah Lance

Oliver Queen’s dashing facial hair isn’t the only big return for him in the just released GREEN ARROW VOL. 1: THE DEATH AND LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN—his utterly hopeless (and sometimes completely embarrassing) devotion to one Dinah Lance, aka the Black Canary is back too, and the two of them are well on their way to reclaiming their status as one of the DC Universe’s most iconic power couples.

Sisters in Crime Fighting: Julie and Shawna Benson Guide Batgirl and the Birds of Prey

It’s been a while since the Birds of Prey have taken flight. The informal, usually all-female team has been a staple of the DC Universe since it was first introduced in 1996, but it hasn’t had an ongoing comic since The New 52’s take on the team ended in 2014. But now, nearly two years later, the Birds are primed to return with a new book that takes the concept back to its roots while boasting an exciting new all-female creative team.
