Birds of Prey 9 (DC Comics)

The 'Death of Oracle' storyline hits its penultimate chapter with an issue that perfectly balances action, plot and character in a perfect demonstration of why DC are getting more of my money than Marvel lately. The opening pages, featuring a harrowing vision Dinah is trapped in, are superb, as is the rest of the issue, with consistently excellent art from Inaki Miranda.

The final pages offer a breathtaking cliffhanger to lead us into the final episode of this game-changing story. The Birds of Prey won't be the same after next month's issue, and as all good comics should, this has got me excited for more. In addition, the extra preview of a new Batman and Robin tale is intriguing, but not much else.
