Review: Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell, by Paul Dini

Black Canary/Zatanna: BloodspellBlack Canary/Zatanna: Bloodspell by Paul Dini
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I agree with both Anne and Sam on this one.

Pros: they both look like ’em. Streetwalkers I mean…Hookers, Super-skanks. Prostitutes, ladies of the night, escorts, Lono? Help me out here with more slutty synonyms…

Fishnets abound. That’s usually lovely, but a bit tiresome here.
The artwork is cartoon-y, like Anne said. I feel like this is perfectly suited to 9-12 yr olds looking to get into comics, maybe even girls? It’s definitely a silly one, but it provides a doorway for kids who have no imagination and this helps. (Sadly, this is imaginative to someone under 15).

Too bad, as Sam and I agree, Paul Dini is a great Batman writer, and usually more dependable than this. Also, he did the Zatanna mini-series’ which are the most attention she ever gets…(Anne go read these, and let us both hope she gets a bigger role post-Trinity War).

All in all, it’s Okay…I guess…but nothing memorable, just not utter shite like other 2 star books.

About Gavin

I'm a lover of pop-culture, from movies to music to books to TV shows to well...comics, and just about everything in between. I'm also a history buff, and spent 4 yrs getting a fancy BA in it. When I was at said University, I got my learn on AND spent all my money on CDs and VHS (yup, I'm THAT old.) However, I'm happy to discuss any topic really, as I love a good debate or just to be proven right. I'm Canadian, so I wear shorts and flip flops 9 months of the year, but no, I am NOT fanatical about hockey (I actually prefer baseball, thank my American father for that!). I love the outdoors, but don't get out enough... I've got a sick twisted sense of humour (hence why I'm friends with these Shallow folks) and believe that laughter is the best medicine...except penicillin...cause laughter won't cure the clap.
