Comic Books of the Week (5/11/11) part 2

Part two of this week's big haul - team titles:

Birds of Prey #12 - Gail Simone starts us off on a new two-parter with Huntress off trying to get a new recruit for the team and the rest of the gals (and Hawk) infilitrating a mysterious business. Things go from bad to worst when the true power behind it is revealed - an old favorite from over in Secret Six. Jesus Saiz is the new artist on the book. I like his work a lot. I think if colorist Nei Ruffino had kicked up the color palletes just a tad it would have looked even better. Overall, solid issue.

R.E.B.E.L.S. #28 - sadly, the final issue of this series. I really enjoyed what Tony Bedard was trying to do each month. The cast had a nice mix of characters not being utilized elsewhere plus some great new ones. The book's run was heavy on battling Starro but it was an epic tale with some great high points. This issue wraps things up nicely as eighteen pages will allow. I would have liked to see Lobo and Smite take down Starro. Ah well. I do believe these characters and team will surface again. It is just a matter of time.
