    One thought on “Black Canary, Volume 1: Kicking and Screaming”

    1. I looked forward to Gotham Academy mainly because I’m a Becky Cloonan fan who enjoyed her By Chance or Providence comics and her more recent series, Southern Cross; but I didn’t care for the series when I read the first volume. I was curious about the new Batgirl title because Cameron Stewart’s a fine artist and a decent storyteller (see Sin Titulo); but it was dreadful. The common thing tying the two titles together? The co-writer on both, Brenden Fletcher.So I approached Black Canary wit [...]

    2. Bullet ReviewI want SO BADLY to rate this higher but I can't.Girl band saves the universe from an incomprehensible Not-Thing. Cue girl clashes.I like Black Canary and all (and the art covers are awesome), but the entire time I read this I kept hearing the Jem and the Holograms theme song.Note to comic writers: this is a VISUAL medium not AUDIO. If you feature a band, some of your story will get "lost in translation".

    3. This graphic novel collects BLACK CANARY #1-7. Well, I didn't like the Black Canary reboot. Not the art and not the story. This ended up being a real chore to read, I kept putting it down from boredom. I did see a good many four and five star reviews, so somebody out there is into it, but god knows I can't figure out why.For some reason Dinah Lance has become the front woman for a band called Black Canary. She has replaced the original front woman called Bo Maeve who is now stalking the band. Th [...]

    4. Dinah Lance Drake is traveling on the road as a rock star. She uses her remarkable voice to belt out songs accompanied by the music of her band. Their band has a bad reputation for trashing venues and causing trouble. It's not their fault. It's the fact that someone wants their bass player bad. Because she has an incredible ability. Dinah aka DD is going to have to get back in the superhero business.I thought this was fun book. Pretty weird, but interesting ideas. I dearly loved the artwork. The [...]

    5. So, I knew in advance that this was going to be a bust for me personally. I appreciate the newer art style DC has appropriated for their "Young DC" stuff, although it isn't my cup of tea. That is the only reason I'm giving it two stars, as I think the "story" in this is a garbage fire of epic proportions. I also hate the Young DC update for Batgirl (except for her costume redesign) and think it's an abomination. But I figured I'd give this a chance, even though it's a spin-off from that series. [...]

    6. I received a preview eARC of this title from the publisher through NetGalley.I'll start this by stating that my only experience with Black Canary is the version of the character we get on CW's Arrow universe. So going in there, this is definitely all new. But that's okay, as it's Volume 1, right? Pretty much.I did feel lost at times, as the story jumped around abruptly quite often. However, it came together fairly well by the end (except the very end, mind you) and made for a pretty enjoyable st [...]

    7. When will writers learn that graphic novels about music are really damn hard to pull off? I think The Wicked and the Divine works because they don't spend a lot of time on the gods' "performing", and I'm not even certain what they do is really music. Whereas, this volume is all about concerts, gigs, band rivalries, etc. - it's hard to pull off with no ACTUAL MUSIC. I can see why the author wanted to get Dinah Lance into a band - thematically, it makes sense. But when she talks about fighting alo [...]

    8. A good concept fails without good execution. The idea of Black Canary leading a punk band is a good concept - it fits the character well. But the execution I'll echo comments of it feeling like Scott Pilgrim, albeit a much more joyless version. And the music quickly becomes secondary to the team forming and the 'mystery' of Ditto, which, when revealed, gets a big eye roll (as does the entire climactic issue). There's some decent art work done here, and there are brief bright moments, but overall [...]

    9. this has such a cool vibe! I loved the story and the art, both absolutely enjoyable and beautiful. although, I can't help but feel tired over the crazy amount of text in this book! maybe I'm not used to a most novelistic approach in a graphic novel but it definitely made a bit uncomfortable while reading full review here: catshelf.wordpress/2016/0

    10. ORIGINALLY POSTED: bibliomantics/2016/01/31/mWhat if Black Canary used her vocal prowess to be the lead singer of a rock band? This is the exact premise of the new Black Canary series, which draws influences from Hedwig and the Angry Inch and David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust days. While I didn't exactly fall in love with the plot, the premise, the artwork and the coloring definitely won me over.

    11. This was GREAT. - A+ for girls kicking ass- the whole music/band thing was top-notch- villainous ladies for the win- the art style, including the coloring, is right up my alley AKA amazingNeed. Volume 2. Now.

    12. As someone who has looked forward to Black Canary's appearances in the recent Rebirth titles like Justice League of America and Green Arrow (she stole the show in Vol. 2 - Island of Scars) I was hoping this edition would be just what I needed.Well, it was. And it wasn't. But because it's 'BC' in a starring role I can't completely bash it . . .The artwork starts out pretty rough but improves throughout the collection. The storyline (she fronts a hastily-assembled rookie rock band on tour; there's [...]

    13. *shakes hand back and forth* This volume had a lot of promise and, while they did literally mash two different characters together (Dinah Lance and Dinah Drake), it was still a decent characterization for Dinah Lance. The issue lies in the fact that, while there's not much to complain about, there isn't much to praise either. At the very least, it definitely didn't push the characters of color to the backseat like Burnside (and Dinah isn't the ooc coined Mega Bitch™ she was in Burnside), but I [...]

    14. I've read Gotham Academy, Batgirl and now Black Canary and I've determined Brendan Fletcher is a crap writer. He really wants to write Scott Pilgrim or some other Oni book, which is fine, but these books are still supposed to be part of the DCU and they just don't fit. This book is really dumb. Black Canary is suddenly a rocker? Surrounded by a generic cast of hipsters and a kid. Because yeah, sure you can bring an 8-year old, non-verbal kid on tour. And then out of nowhere it turns out the kid [...]

    15. Honestly, I was expecting more from this. It seems like all of the stakes were thrown into the last issue instead of building from the first issue. The issues prior were more focused on the band aspect than the main problem they were supposed to be facing. All of a sudden we have a giant alien invading. What??I'm also tired of Kurt and Dinah reuniting only to face some perilous circumstances that cause them to separate like two issues later. This happened in Birds of Prey and then again here. I [...]

    16. I'm torn on what rating I should give this. On one hand, I actually did enjoy this more than I expected to, especially the great art. On the other it doesn't really feel like a Black Canary story? It's the same problem I had with Batgirl of Burnside; a good story with great art, but it's not a story I recognize as belonging to Batgirl.So, for now, a conflicted 3. I'll likely read the second volume.

    17. Nunca tinha lido nada da Canário Negro, por isso, esperava que fosse igual a série "Arrow", mas me surpreendi. A arte é maravilhosa, as cores, tudo. Apaixonado por essa HQ. Única coisa que me deixou incomodado é o fato de ela ter uma banda com o nome de "Black Canary", e não ela se chamar assim. (E ela não está com o Oliver!)

    18. You know how comic books are all about writing and images coming together to create a unique method of storytelling by complementing and enhancing each other? Well, Black Canary is the first book in my (short) career of a comic book reader where writing is clearly inferior to the art. I find this fact extremely disappointing since Annie Wu’s style and amazing ability to propel the story without relying on weak dialogue is truly admirable (check out, for example, almost seven pages at the end, [...]

    19. This was disappointing. I find I'm becoming more and more frustrated by comics mainly about women (yes!), particularly a group of women (yess!), poc women (YES!), women of diverse sizes (YESSS!), and then the story is dull/shallow/uninteresting (no!) and the characters are flat cardboard cut-outs (noooo!). Not that there aren't plenty of dreadful comics about men, I just find those easier to avoid because I'm not super interested in reading them in the first place.In addition to the story being [...]

    20. It’s always a shame when a story leaves you largely indifferent to it, unfortunately, Black Canary was one such read for me. To be clear, I do not hate Black Canary Vol. 1 I did give it three stars after all, but I don’t really care one way or another about the characters. I will say I stopped reading D.C. comics a few years ago, simply because I felt like I was reading a ton of dialogue and set up but getting very little out of it. I’ve never read a comic so wordy and yet feel so empty as [...]

    21. Black Canary, Vol 1: Kicking and Screaming by Brendan Fletcher is the collection of the new reboot of the Black Canary series. Hot on the heels of the successful Batgirl reboot, Black Canary gets much of the same treatment but misses the mark that Batgirl seems to hit so effortlessly.Dinah Lance has had enough of being a superhero and enough of all the crime fighting problems that come with it. Instead she has found a new vocation and may have hung up her superhero persona forever. The Black Can [...]

    22. You can find this and other reviews at: owlsandvowelsI’m new to Black Canary as a character. She’s always been on my radar since I follow the Bat family closely, and I’ve cracked open a Suicide Squad or two, but I’ve never read one where she is the headliner. In truth, I often find it hard to connect with the female characters that DC cranks out (even though I’m a girl) and I largely overlooked her. A complete mistake on my part.D.D. (Dinah) has a true punk rock charm that I instantly [...]

    23. I actually started reading the Rebirth Batgirl and Birds of Prey before reading Black Canary. It was through Batgirl and Birds of Prey that I became more interested in reading the solo story for Black Canary. I really liked the use of colours and different textures in the art in order to tell the story. Black Canary's (Dinah) special abilities are in regards to sound and sound waves, therefore the use of colours and textures helped illustrate her superhero abilities. I also think the art style t [...]

    24. Not bad. Hard to reconcile with the portrayal of the Black Canary on Arrow, but maybe that will make more sense after the next volume.

    25. 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!Dinah Lance is settling into her new life, as the lead singer of her band Black Canary. They are quite [...]

    26. This was not good. The general concept (Dinah Lance as the frontwoman for a band) is cool, but the execution and the details are so lunkheaded and cheesy that I was cringing throughout reading this. The plotting is clumsy and leans on the ridiculous to get where it needs to go. Really, who books a band that causes thousands and thousands of dollars of damage at every venue, and that employs a mute child as guitarist? Stupid. This book tries to trade on the cool factor of an indie/punk music sett [...]

    27. I didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did but I'm officially adding this BLACK CANARY reboot to my (growing) list of graphic novel superheroines & series to continue. In this introductory volume, Dinah is an undercover rock star, lead singer of "World's Most Dangerous Band" Black Canary. Black Canary has a huge following & record-breaking chart toppers but while on tour, the all girls band encounter monsters & mayhem. than they bargained for. Soon, all they want to know is how w [...]

    28. This book is fresh and kicky! Black Canary reinvents herself as a rock singer on a kung fu road trip to save her band, also called Black Canary, from rival musicians and otherworldly nasties! Reminded me lotz of Caity Lotz's Canary from the Arrow tv series - struggling between a dark past and a new beginning as hero and protector. The best comic book I've read in a long time. It won't be around forever, but that's ok because it's a fun 'now' take on a classic character. Plus she's just badass - [...]

    29. I have always had a soft spot for Dinah Lance, aka Black Canary, in DC Comics. She's badass and snarky and has a scream that can kill people. So when I found out that she got her own series in the New 52, and that it was super fun and not what you'd expect, I was on board. BLACK CANARY: KICKING AND SCREAMING is a great introduction to a new Dinah, the lead singer of an all girl punk group called Black Canary. I love Dinah, I love her bandmates (Lord Byron and Paloma, along with a mysterious litt [...]
