“Batgirl and the Birds of Prey” is wrapping up in a couple of months, after running for nearly two years as part of ‘Rebirth.’ The series, which focuses on Batgirl, Black Canary, and Huntress, has really hit its stride of late, especially the ‘Manslaughter’ arc, which saw many of the DCU’s prominent female characters join the book to fight a male-only virus. It showed all the strengths of the book: the friendship and trust between the characters, the street-level threats, and Gotham City outside of the shadow of the (main) Bat. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at #20, which drops on March 14th

“Full Circle” part two! With the Birds of Prey fractured by last issue’s events, the team must set aside their feelings of mistrust and work together to find the Calculator. Huntress wrestles with her feelings when she’s called to testify on behalf of her mother at a parole hearing, but is Helena ready to forgive her after everything they’ve been through? And while Black Canary struggles with her powers and Batgirl battles her guilt over keeping secrets from her teammates, the Calculator’s robotic assassin, Burnrate, makes an unwelcome return!
Thanks again to DC for the preview, and make sure to pick up the book on Wednesday!
