Dinah Lance hits the road! After years as a soldier and vigilante, the last place Dinah saw herself is on stage ... but she's quickly learning she'd die to protect the gang of misfits she's fallen into. And she just might have to—for some reason, the newly rechristened band Black Canary seems to be a magnet for trouble ... and Dinah's not gonna believe it when she finds out the reason why!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Good!!! I really enjoy this take on Black Canary! It's a cool and different take on the New 52 Dinah Lance, and the art is super fun, colourful, and grungy. Girl Rockers Rock!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Art supported the comic. The art by Wu is fantastic and really carried the comic through it's dry story. There is so much untapped potential that Fletcher could have used to accentuate the story of Black Canary. It's fun for those who want to see Canary in a band and it's a different twist on Canary's abilities. But I feel that the story was flat and never really peaked. It's recommended mostly for the art. Wu's style really matched the rock and roll vibe the comic was aiming at.
