Bad Realtors 

This is that between arc story, the Birds of Prey are complete and are kicking absolute butt. As a matter of fact, we start off and the ladies are in the middle of a battle when Batgirl gets notified that her clock tower is being broken into. Even better is she already know who the culprits are, her Realtor. What they don't know is why. They set up an undercover op where they investigated the Realtor and basically this couple is selling the previous homes of notorious villains such as Riddler and Catwoman. To make a somewhat long story short what happened was the clock tower was hiding a bunch of gold stolen from a bank years ago. The couple was after that gold. Luckily Batgirl found it in time and wound up donating it to the Children's hospital, the couple was completely caught off
guard but all is well with the world they got credit and Barbara advertised them on television as being the best. Helena even bought a place from them and decided to stick around. Canary mentions her boyfriend and Barbara notices that Dick Greyson has changed his relationship status on Facebook and gets a little sad. She does however end the story bonding with Helena and Dinah.


As plain as this story was it was so awesome compared to some from the previous arc. I hope this means its going to get better. The art could have been a little softer and the colors brighter but overall I am fairly happy with it. I feel like the girls were a little to pointy. Like I didn't really have to turn the page Helena's nose reached out and turned them for me. I'm excited to see where the story goes from here especially with this actually capturing my interest and keeping it. I was kind of confused about Dick Greyson though I thought she had her eye one someone else and was completely over him but I suppose those two will always have that special place, even though I think she is better off with Tim Drake. Just sayin...

High Holy: ★★★★★★★★☆☆
