Todd & Joe Have Issues 08/03/17: Birds of Prey #8

Chuck Dixon gets a bad rap. And by “bad rap” I don’t mean people actively hate him or anything but people don’t talk about how in the 90’s, he was one of the most proflic and best writers of that time. Some are prolific, some are great, few are both. And one of those examples were the Bat-Family of books, everything from Robin to Nightwing and everything in between, Dixon had his fingerprints on in. Another of those books was Birds of Prey, which will be talking about this week.

One of my favorite things of the Bat Books is the will they/won’t they, Sam and Diane relationship between Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon that (retroactively) dates back to their very origins.

I’m a sucker for everytime Dick & Babs cross paths and no matter the writer or situation, it’s always bittersweet. There have been a few times and timelines where they get they’re ‘Happily Ever After’ ending, but for now, we’ll take what we get from this relationship.
