This was a sweet and vibrant Black Canary story, and I think it was nicely told in Cara McGee's art style. I can see young middle-grade and younger teen readers interested in superhero origin stories really enjoying it! The biggest downside is that it's not really anything super original; in fact it was predictable in every single way I can imagine. The story and plot itself definitely could have used more pizzazz.
