Birds of Prey 109
Some late thoughts on BOP 109 and the fate of Knockout, popular among fans of the Secret Six, redhead fans, lesbian fans and me . I knew I would miss Gail's wit and touch, but Tony Bedard writing on this is just flat,pointless and unimaginative. The big scene where Babs discusses Ollie's past with Dinah makes Babs seem shrill, and wrong on her facts, which Oracle is not. (DC continuity error). I was a big fan of the Secret Six, and it seems that all the goodwill and work Gail did was squandered with one single issue of BOP without her writing. Kill off another strong female, DC? Damn it Didio and DC crew. I'm getting to feel about you the way I feel about the Marvelzombies and their marketing manipulations and distain for fan input.
It is EVERYONE complaining about one more pointless death that is little more than a footnote in the body count for the build-up to The Next Big Crossover.
Tony Bedard, writer: he fails totally to get past the obvious tricks of the trades.
