    This is yet another outstanding issue for Birds of Prey. There’s an absolute joy in seeing the puzzle pieces of this arc begin to snap together, as Kelly Thompson meshes high-concept pasts, presents, and futures into something intriguing. But there’s an equal joy in seeing the Birds’ bonds grow even stronger, as well as experiencing their rapport with the issue’s newest character. Robbi Rodriguez and Gavin Guidry’s art is flawless and visually fascinating, especially where costume and character design is concerned. This is, undeniably, one of DC’s best series today, if not the very best.

    This series keeps giving me things I didn’t know I wanted. All the different looks for the team and the bonding sessions add so much more to the storylines. There’s nothing these ladies can’t make work, and that’s evident in Birds Of Prey #10.

    I’ll be sticking around to see more of the great work the team is doing, and recommend that you do the same!

    This is easily the most ambitious book coming out of DC right now.

    Thompson crafts a fun and entertaining story in this issue. The arc continues to be more interesting as Thompson reveals more layers and complications for the characters. There is a great buildup of suspense throughout the story and the interpersonal conflicts lead to some great reveals for both the world and the conflict within it. I continue to be invested in this story and its characters and cannot wait to see what happens next.

    Rodriguez and Guiday deliver some beautifully detailed art throughout the issue. I really enjoyed how the visual styles complemented each other and how those styles created wonderful visual moment for the characters.

    Birds Of Prey #10 continues the heroic team’s otherworldly journey as they search for their missing friend/mentor and discover a whole new evil and its connection to their timeline. A whole lot of exposition and lore are dropped, causing a bit of a pause in the things that previously had kept the series’ issues moving so smoothly.

    This issue is an uptick in this series. We are getting better development of the individual members of the team, and the stakes are also getting higher. Instead of just a rescue mission, this story has the capability of becoming a time-adventure with the theme of death and revenge at the forefront.

    Kelly Thompson’s bringing a sense of zaniness to the Birds of Prey, making this one of Mr. Toad’s wild ride. Unfortunately the off the wall hijinks don’t always land as Kelly’d like them to. Hopefully she’ll get to her sweet spot as her time on the title marches on.

    One thing this book has done really well is how skillful it is with its artist changes to show a point of view/mood change. This time, during the issue set in Barda’s mind, Robbie Rodriguez and Gavin Guiday take over the art. Their style works perfectly for this setting and in the larger setting of artists for this Birds run. Each artist shift is incredibly unique and leaves their own mark on the story, but none are so jarring in their differences that it makes it an unpleasant shift that doesn’t match the vibe. The artwork in this issue is once again the star, while the writing struggles to find its footing and settle on the plot.

    When it comes to artistic direction Birds of Prey #10 is at the top of its game. Robbi Rodriguez, Gavin Guidry, and Jordie Bellaire have a ton of fun providing a unique style to the cross-dimensional adventures of the Birds of Prey. The design from the new costumes to the special effects utilize made this feel like a unique experience. The writing on the otherhand was very handholding with how much information dumping there is. Its one of those necessary evil chapters where this story arc needed these details to be laid out. But that does not excuse how by the end of Birds of Prey #10 we don’t progress further than when this issue started.

    Birds of Prey #10, outside of Cela’s information dump is just so much nonsense.  Barely more happens than last issue, but what does is meaningless.  The very thin plot doesn’t serve the characters that well, and the characters themselves feel secondary, which is again the opposite of the Birds of Prey concept.  The plot itself has a lot of contrivance and the REASON Cela’s sister is after Barbara couldn’t be a more overused idea and underwhelming idea.
