A strong issue, despite the tie-in.
I am loving that Foreman art.
Duane S. is clearly one of the top-drawer writers in the nu52. This is the BOP I always wanted, but never got. Until Duane.
I still haven't read this bad girl. I need to remedy that ASAP. Foreman excellence will put me in a good mood after a long day.
For a tie in, it was a good issue some tings didn't get like why couldn't Dinah cry shatter Talon Skull or why didn't Katana decapitated him with her sword I noticed the art was different it was okay.
Seems like Dinah is visiting Katana a lot. They are bonding because of their dead husbands, I kind of love it.
Travel Foreman's art is amazing. As always. But I just couldn't get into the story for some reason.
Also the story was mediocre because of how bothersome Surviveseverywhichway-Man displayed as varied a skillset as every Talon resurrected so far with entity-flaws unique only to them. He predictably survives the whole issue as every has to keep the gimmick going. It just seem wrong if they undergo the same process that they are so different. Maybe an upcoming story will clean that element up some. This issue the Birds were cleaning the foe's clock every which way but he was more recuperative than Deadpool - and his power flaunting can be very bothersome.
The Birds themselves were okay in this adventure.

I really like the new art direction. Love Starling most of all. Her banter is just hilarious. Not bad for a tie in issue.
Not a bad issue at all, but Katana just should have decapitated the Talon.
But, my god, what a fan-frickin-tastic issue. The only really good NotO crossover issue so far IMO, and a brilliant introduction of Foreman to the title. And by far the best thing I read this week.
I would like to note that I am/was only slated for 3 issues. It may end up being an issue or two more, depending on decisions out of my hands, but I'm not the permanent artist.
I have a question about Black canary though, did you purposefully annex the sandals for the boots? Also her bodysuit is not Black anymore, is this the new direction theyíre going with her ever evolving costume.
