Meh I really don’t feel like much happened in this issue. But at least we get the return of Speedy! It seemed weird that she was just written out of the book. Maybe Kreisberg felt he needed room to introduce Cupid? I don’t know but she’s back and sporting a black costume. This could be a coloring error because there is no mention of the change by Black Canary when she sees her. Weird. I hope it’s explained soon. Oh and I hate the art in the back-up.

Awkward Marriage

I really like how the co-features in this book are working with the plots tuly overlapping. It made sense since it is about a married couple – of course their lives overlap. The main story was only okay, but the real meat of the issue was the Black Canary back up and her talk with Wildcat. Kreisberg really understands Dinah. I definitely underestimated him at the beginning of his run. He is getting a real handle on her. The art (the inks) on the main story was not too my taste and was just confusing and jarring for a Green Arrow story. I didn’t like the lay out of the panels either. Cupid looks like she is becoming a regular member of the supporting cast, and while I miss Speedy, I don’t mind if Cupid stays around. She is so creepy fun.
