ARC Review: Black Canary, Vol. 1: Kicking and Screaming

Black Canary, Vol. 1: Kicking and Screaming by Brenden Fletcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Release date: March 8, 2016

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 the dangerous band to listen to, with their concerts being frequently broken up over fights, most of them ended by Dinah herself. Her punk goth look is a hit, but she is not exactly a musician, and when the past comes knocking, she becomes suspicious of the events that led her to this band. The storyline is interesting, she and her new bandmates growing to love each other, being protective about the young Ditto they have on board. That character actually has a lot to do with the storyline, so I won’t reveal any spoilers. Maeve was a fairly interesting character, but she has shades of gray, like Dinah. The artwork of this graphic novel is its key point, in my opinion, with its compelling style and flow of the story. In short, I would recommend it for even casual fans like me.

Received a free galley from DC Entertainment, via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.
