In the final issue of the storyline, the Huntress realizes Oracle has been manipulating her psychologically in order to make her "behave" properly, in the same way a teacher attempts to reform a troubled child. She later rejoins the team, once again as a full-time agent along with newcomer Lady Blackhawk. Although the personnel on Oracle's team grows and changes, Huntress and Lady Blackhawk remain core agents.

As Birds of Prey approached its hundredth issue, Simone used issues 99 and to shake up the lineup. She let Black Canary leave the team with her ward, a little girl called " Sin ", and used a prison break arc to introduce superhumanly strong Big Barda , pacifist Judomaster and rascally Misfit into the new squad, and with the new Spy Smasher as an ambiguous Jack Bauer -like anti-heroine and Lois Lane cornering Oracle into almost giving away her secret identity.

Again, the characters were chosen to provide a foil for each other, and affirmed her love for her characters: "The team is a group of individuals, quite unlike the friendship between Dinah, Helena and Babs. And any team with Barda on it automatically has a certain bull in a China shop tremble, and I love that The characters don't apologize for being asskickers, nor for being smart, nor for being sexy, nor for being sexual, for that matter.

There are always going to be some people who find that not to their taste, but at the same time, Birds of Prey regularly brings in people who don't otherwise read mainstream comics, a whole audience that may not pick up any other superhero titles, and I love that niche, that little area between good taste and utter shamelessness.

Writing the last issue of Birds of Prey I'm doing was actually physically painful. Bedard wants to mix the concept of 21st century white-collar crime with s mob families and has stated that Oracle is his favorite Birds of Prey character. DC canceled the series in February , with the Oracle: The Cure mini-series beginning publication the following month as part of a company-wide reorganization of Batman-related titles. On January 13, , DC announced the return of the Birds of Prey title slated to begin a few months later under the Brightest Day banner.

Gail Simone returned to write series with Ed Benes providing the artwork. Hawk and Dove were brought as new members of the team as well, with Oracle playing a strictly supporting role. It was eventually announced that the title would be cancelled along with every other DC book as part of a company-wide relaunch following the Flashpoint event. Manhunter, a former Birds of Prey member created by Andreyko, appeared as well. DC Comics relaunched Birds of Prey with issue 1 in September for The New 52 relaunch with the new series having some similar characters which existed in a different universe than the previous DC titles.

The book's first storyline begins shortly after Barbara regains the use of her legs due to the events of Flashpoint. Dinah approaches her old friend with an offer to join the new Birds of Prey team she is putting together, but she declines, instead suggesting that Katana take her place. The gun-toting vigilante Starling is also recruited into the team, [27] along with Poison Ivy. After the departure of Poison Ivy after issue 12, the team roster changed again when Katana spun off into her own solo book along with providing her services to the Justice League of America.

Huntress is aware of Batgirl and Black Canary's secret identities, but they do not seem to be aware of hers. The three women form an uneasy alliance in order to take down mutual foes. Batgirl and Black Canary are attempting to find yet another villain who is using the name "Oracle". Issue 4 is essentially Huntress's origin story, showing why she is waging war against certain mob families.

The series has been collected into a number of trade paperbacks published by DC Comics. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. American comic series and superhero team.

by T. C. Tombs

Meanwhile, the Beast of Varakov pursues his own secretive mission, recruiting an unlikely aide to his cause. If you know who he is you get major points with me. Badly injured during the raid, he survives—but now he is afflicted by the full-moon madness that will soon transform him into one of the wolf creatures he dreads.

In a time of witchcraft, superstitious folk lore, and fearsome creatures roaming the night, Willie struggles with an uncertain destiny and must seek help from the one man he holds most responsible for the dark fate that awaits him during the next full moon cycle.

Thus begins the first novel in a historical horror trilogy about werewolves and vampires. The book began with too much info dump of every person Willie and other main characters ran into. But after all that, it started to become interesting and good. This could be the story of Dracula and even the Wolfman in Classic Monsters, or at least wolfmen. There are three countries by each other. One is Medinia, where Willie comes from. I liked the ruler and his Princess daughters of this country.

I can not wait to see how they play into the sequel. Medinia has been battling with for centuries with Skoland and now is trying to achieve a truce by marriage of the eldest Priness to the eldest son of the ruler of Skoland. Varakov is led by Lord Victor, who sent the wolfmen and warg-wolves into Medinia to destroy sheep and cattle of the farmers in the upper north of Medinia.

Unfortunately, Willie gets bitten by one of the warg-wolves, and the head of the wolfmen decides to take him back with them to Varkov. But if you like novels set in medieval times, plus werewolves and vampires and witches and more, I suggest checking out this book. It hooked me enough that I plan to read the other two books in the series.

Run with the Wolves is written by a Canadian author living in Toronto and is an interesting take on history. Set in our timeline, Run with the Wolves takes place in a fictional country called Varakov, and focuses on several key characters, most of them lycanthropes in some way or another.

First we are introduced to a young farm boy named Willie in a neighboring country of Medinia when a pack of werewolves came hunting and the poor lad got bit. Taken in by the human leader of this pack, Willie is Run with the Wolves is written by a Canadian author living in Toronto and is an interesting take on history. Taken in by the human leader of this pack, Willie is carried across the border and taught the ways of the werewolf, and their bond with another pack of lycanthropes, were worgs. Not only do we have humans who turn into half man half wolf creatures called werewolves, but we also have wolves that turn into something more when the moon shines full and high: worgs.

Worgs are fictional creatures, most of those who have watch The Lord of the Rings will recognize them most easily as the creatures the orcs rode into battle. Large, mean, nasty creatures worgs are. But alas and alack, the story does not focus on these fascinating creatures. But lord Victor has some issues of his own, what with dark wizards, blood drinking, and shape shifting into a winged demon at will… There were some issues with this book, mostly with minor grammar mistakes that the editor missed and with the pacing.

It moved more slowly than it should have at some points, focusing largely on the history and economic structure of the countries the story takes place in, so despite the information being interesting and largely beneficial to the overall story, the pace of the story did lag because of it. The first of what I can only assume to be a trilogy, I think I am looking forward to the next home, and hopefully these minor kinks will have been worked out by then.

That being said, I actually did enjoy Tomb's novel about the fifteenth century mixed with werewolves, witch craft and other spooky things that go bump in the night and get the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. However this book is v 3. However this book is very much paced like the typical historical novel. There's a fair amount of action but there is a whole lot of story telling without it dragging I promise! I really enjoyed the storyline though and I think the reason I enjoyed it so much was Willie.

There was something about him that I just found to be really likable. Maybe it's because I pitied him when he was bitten, but whatever it was about him I thought he made the whole novel worth reading.

That isn't to say that the other characters in this story of three Kingdoms weren't just as good, because they were. I also really enjoyed the plot of the book. The idea of two kingdoms trying to come together to finally broker a peace between their peoples was a good one especially with the wild card kingdom of Varakov in the mix that wants nothing to do with this stuff so there was a bit of politics involved in the telling of the story as well. Overall, I thought this was a refreshing read. I really enjoyed the authors voice and the way that the story in volume one was told and can't wait to read volume two.

I would recommend this to all fans of fantasy, horror and historical fiction. Shelves: author-sent-to-me-for-review , , , ebook , historical-fantasy , read-on-my-kindle-nook , read-but-unowned. Europe in the fifteenth century is notoriously brutal and enmeshed in dire conflict.

So it is for the three kingdoms of Medinia, Skoland and Varakov. Medinia and Skoland have been embroiled in a decade-long war, and Varakov has remained in uneasy neutrality during that time.

Now, as a peaceful resolution provides tentative hope that the seemingly endless war will eventually reach an end, no one realizes that sinister forces are waiting to invoke chaos as a full moon rises.

One moonlit evening, when the Smythes travel to a neighboring village to attend the annual fair, Willie hears the terrified cries of animals in the pasture. When he goes to investigate, he discovers a bizarre wolf pack raid unlike any other. Badly injured during the attack, he survives - but is afflicted by the full-moon madness that will soon transform him into one of the wolf creatures he dreads. In a time rife with witchcraft, superstitious folk lore and fearsome creatures roaming the night, Willie struggles with an uncertain destiny and must seek help from Woodrow, the Pack Leader - the one man he holds most responsible for the dark fate that awaits him during the next full moon cycle.

I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I was drawn into the story from the first page, and needed to know how it ended. It was fast paced, suspenseful, and filled with a varied cast of deeply flawed characters - some suffering from afflictions beyond their control, others that were just distinctly evil. I give this book an A! I want to know how this saga turns out. Mar 07, Ashley Dawn rated it liked it.
