Graphic Novel

This is definitely a new twist on the BLACK CANARY character. She is using her voice to sing instead of break peoples ear drums. If only it could be that easy for her, be in a band, make some money. Strangely enough most of their shows are breaking out in violence and BLACK CANARY has a tendency to fight back. All this violence has them wondering what is going on and it's not until aliens attack and try to take their young guitar player that they realize something more than crazy fans is going on.

People or things are coming for the girl and with the help of a surprise old friend the Canary is determined to save the young, mute teen. The action is non stop, from singing to fighting and training the band members keep quite busy and will stop at nothing to save Ditto.

The artwork is well done, with variety throughout and a few surprises thrown in at the end. If the BLACK CANARY was needing a restart she got it. Now let's see where they take her character and keep if they keep her alive.
