Episode 22: CANCELED

FINAL EPISODE.

Ryan Daly reviews Black Canary #12, the last issue from the Blonde Bombshell’s 1993 series. But he can’t cover this story alone—it’s so ‘90s, it’s going to take special guest star Nathaniel Wayne from Council of Geeks to put this insanity into words.

All of this sets the stage for next year’s POWER OF FISHNETS Podcast devoted to Black Canary and the Mistress of Magic, Zatanna!

Flowers & Fishnets is available for download on iTunes by clicking here, or you can check out the show's RSS feed right here.

Sample pages from Black Canary #12, written by Sarah Byam with interior art by Leo Duranona and cover by Federico Cueva.

  1. The big question for me is, when the heck did that guy ever see Dinah I looking like THAT?

  2. Good question! He recognized her in a completely different outfit and hairstyle at night, looking as many as two decades younger than Old Dinah would've been when he last saw her.

  3. Oh, the horror.

    I wonder if Byam KNEW the book was being cancelled? If so, why did she set Dinah off on this totally new course? Why not just put her back where she got her, so the next creator didn't have to deal with this?

    The artwork WAS better, from what I'm seeing here, but man, there are some serious 90s anatomy issues going on. Everyone is pretty, unlike Von Eden's take, but just look at how high up Dinah's boobs are in any given panel! And those neverending upper thighs! Yowza!

    Looking forward to some Zatanna action, and Ryan being forced to read all those backwards spells. Heh.

  5. Wow, that sounded terrible. Also, looks awful from the scans. Just a big mass of gross and stupid that you guys already covered at length.

    I will say though that all the reactionary, entitled, heteronormative outrage in the letters column makes be wish this look had lasted longer. Not book, mind; Look.
