Before they became best-selling creators, writer Gail Simone (WONDER WOMAN) and artist Ed Benes (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA) first rose to prominence with their run on BIRDS OF PREY--starting right here! Hit the ground running with this sexy, high-octane adventure starring Black Canary and Oracle!

Original solicitation: The new creative team of Gail Simone (Agent X) and Ed Benes & Alex Lei (SUPERGIRL) takes flight! In a tricky legal and ethical dilemma, the Birds show mercy to a would-be white collar criminal. Their act of compassion brings them to the attention of master extortionist (and one-time superhero) Savant, a man who claims he can outthink Oracle and outfight the Canary…and can prove it!

Summary of Stephness: Spoiler appears in Oracles quick list of heros who could help Black Canary, alongside Nightwing, Robin, Huntress, and a few others. Though Steph was nowhere near ready to face someone of Savant's calibre, it's nice to know Oracle had her on call!
