The start of the Birds of Prey. It starts with just Black Canary and Barbara Gordon, aka Oracle. Oracle hires Black Canary to be her eyes, ears, as well as her fists and feet to defeat those who are playing in the shadows and taking advantage of and even killing innocents.

In the later issues Oracle and Black Canary also work with Lois Lane, a very cool team, she and Black Canary have good banter. Then Black Canary and Oracle team up with Catwoman and Huntress as well. The Oracle/Catwoman stuff was pretty cool too, although I didn't love the Huntress/Oracle interactions.

Still, I thought that the best chemistry/banter was between Black Canary/Oracle throughout the entire TPB. It was alternatively hilarious, caring, and at times angry (although that didn't seem like a mean angry between them). A very, very well written bunch of team ups for sure. ( )

This collection contains the single issues Black Canary/Oracle: Birds of Prey #1, Birds of Prey: Manhunt #1-4, Birds of Prey: Revolution #1, a story from Showcase '96 #3. "Birds of Prey Volume 1" collects the above, but also includes Birds of Prey: Wolves and Birds of Prey: Batgirl #1.
