In December, a whole lot o' DC comics will ship with covers illustrated by Darwyn Cooke. By then, Birds of Prey will be long dead and I have no idea if Black Canary is slated to end up in another book because I haven't paid attention to the solicits since, um, April...?
However, Cooke included Black Canary in the background of his cover for Justice League #37.
|That's her way back behind Superman and Batman.|
I wondered if there was any reason for this specific assemblage of of heroes. Cooke expertly depicts a nostalgic sense of whimsy in his covers, so it makes sense that he uses the seven original members of the Justice League of America--Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and J'Onn J'Onzz. But he also includes Cyborg, a founding member of the New 52 Justice League. But what about Green Arrow and Black Canary? I can't imagine this is the lineup of the team in issue #37 since J'Onn and Ollie are in Justice League United and for some reason I think Hal Jordan is still off the team playing space cop.
I would be happy if Black Canary joined the main Justice League team. I think she deserve a shot at it, but it might take a creative team shift to get me interested in reading the comic again. I like most of what Geoff Johns does, but I don't think he ever had a firm grasp on the League like he did with Green Lantern, the Flash or Justice Society.
