Episode 120: A Wakeful Time

Gail Simone pieces together what seems like 3 vignettes, but the separate narratives are actually part of the same story, following our favorite heroes in comics, Oracle, Black Canary, The Huntress, and Zinda, Lady Black Hawk.  Moving to a new city, settling scores, and introducing themselves are much harder than what any of them imagine.  To new Beginnings!  Cheers!

Episode 83: Birds of Prey 50 Busman's Holiday

Gilbert Hernandez and Casey Jones take control of the Birds of Prey franchise.  According to Ashford, he feels like this issue was proper Birds of Prey.  Great issue with Black Canary/Oracle banter.  We get Black Canary on the motorcycle and doing martial arts.  We get some great action scenes and great character moments.   Let us know what you think at feathersandfoes@gmail.com

Episode 90: Of Like Minds 2

Here. We. Go.  Birds of Prey #57 is finally here.  Yes, the first issue with the Huntress in Birds of Prey proper.  Sure, Huntress appeared in the Man Hunt four part story before Volume 1 of Birds of Prey, but this is the real entry! Black Canary is in serious trouble, beaten and tied up by the brilliant, but sadistic Savant.  Oracle has a cast of characters she can choose from to save Dinah, but who is the right hero to save Black Canary? And we know the situation must be terrible if Black Canary needs saving.

Episode 102: One Day-Well Chosen

Cool art, a Trinity guest appearance, and a well-written script almost didn't save this book's ratings, for the gross cover and subject matter within the book really ruffled the feathers of Ashford, Mark, and Laurel.  Were we too hard on this book?  Take a listen and you decide.

Episode 82: Batgirl and the Birds of Prey Finale

The finale, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey 22, hit the shelves on May 11, 2018.  Based on the moves at DC comics, Feathers and Foes weren't surprised about this movie at all. Sad to hear that the Benson's run is done, but we are excited about following them to Green Arrow.  Will Helena Bertinelli ever find a home?

Episode 85: Reunions

Ashford, Mark, and Laurel discuss issue 52 of Birds of Prey.  Black Canary is trying to assist Java in saving Sapphire and son, while the Oracle is battling a front at home, and it is uncomfortable as all get out.  The Birds of Prey have faced stronger threats, but with Black Canary having to be kind of on the side in her story, and Babes seemingly not being in control, this issue lends itself to being quite interesting.

Episode 86: Girls' Night Out

Mark and Ashford of Feathers and Foes really had a hard time wrapping their head around Birds of Prey 53 by writer Gilbert Hernandez and artist Casey Jones.  The Birds, Dinah and Barbara, go on Holiday, escaping their problems and enjoying some WELL DESERVED rest and relaxation.  This gives Hernandez a chance to stretch his muscle by writing a down to earth story where we, the readers, get a chance to see Dinah and Barbara interact face to face.  We also see how men are attracted to these two crime fighters, which at times becomes tired rather quickly.  Dinah is trying to understand her feelings with her Green Arrow situation and Barbara Gordon is trying to figure out things with Nightwing.  While all of this is happening, hash tag nice guy Tom comes into the picture.  Cue the emo music, Ladies and Gentlemen.
