Black Canary #2 is hitting the shelves tomorrow so we are going to look back at where we left off the last time we saw Dinah an the band. (Click here for a list of what’s coming out tomorrow. We split the list into two groups: new single issues and new HC, TP, and Reprints.)
In issue #1 we are introduced to Gotham City’s four piece band called Black Canary. Along with their manager, Heathcliff, their lineup includes: Front woman – Dinah (also called D.D.), Drummer – Lord Byron, Keyboardist and Tech Whiz – Paloma, and Guitarist and a mute – Ditto. The band has a fresh new record deal and are out on the road promoting their album. However, it seems like they can’t make it through a gig without violence breaking out, violence which seems to be focused towards D.D. The band’s singer has a mysterious past but we do learn that she lived with a sensei who trained her and she was once married. She is on contract with the band and is signed up for only a few shows. Then she plans to go back and rebuild her dojo and her team.
During their show at the Wizard’s Wand, three monsters appear in the crowd. D.D. takes them out by using her ultrasonic scream. Before escaping, the monsters tell her that “He will come for her.” It turns out they meant Ditto. The band decides to continue on with their tour but D.D. insists that she trains the rest of the band on how to take care of themselves. We are left with an image of the band’s bus rolling off down the road, with some hitchhikers catching a ride as well.
What do you think we will discover tomorrow when Issue #2 gets released? Will Ditto finally speak? Will we find out who is after her? Will someone in the band become a prodigy under Dinah? Only one more day before we find out.
Have fun tomorrow picking up your new books and don’t forget to check out some of the other topics on this blog, such as Monday Cinema Club, Bookworm Tuesday, Anything Can Happen Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, and Friday’s Week in Review.
