Comic Book Character Of The Month - Birds of Prey
Angus discovers the comic book that started it all for DC's all female superhero team Black Canary/Oracle: Birds of Prey #1 in celebration of Birds of Prey being the Comic Book Characters of the Month for January. This dynamic pairing would spark one of the most successful runs of an all female team for DC and expand its readership in the process.  They would inspire a live action TV show, appearances in animated shows and next month will debut on the big screen with Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).  The selection reviewed in this episode is: Black Canary/Oracle: Birds of Prey #1 https://www.comixology.com/Black-Canary-Oracle-Birds-of-Prey-1/digital-comic/7615 The Birds of Prey legacy took flight right here in a one-shot issue pitting Oracle and Black Canary against an international crime ring that neither could have taken down on her own. But when they combine their efforts, these two super-stars of the DCU create one rip-roaring adventure!
