Fearless street fighter and frequent partner to Green Arrow, Dinah Lance tackles injustice with her unmatched martial arts skills and her ear-piercing "Canary Cry."
Sometimes the most beautiful things are also the most deadly. Such is the case with Dinah Lance, a.k.a. the Black Canary, a silver-tongued songstress who just so happens to have the power to turn her voice into a supersonic blast she calls a "Canary Cry."
A highly-trained martial artist and master of disguise, Dinah's life hasn't always been easy. Before her career as a musician took off, she spent most of her time just trying to survive on the streets of Gotham City. It was this rough upbringing that taught her the value of her strength and gave her the skills to fight—something that would later prove a huge asset as she put on a mask and became a superhero.
Dinah spends her time working both solo and on various teams. Most notably, she helps with the Birds of Prey alongside her best friend and fellow hero, Barbara Gordon. But when she's not fighting for the betterment of Gotham, chances are you can find her roaming Seattle alongside the on-again-off-again love of her life, Green Arrow.

updatedHARLEY QUINN & THE BIRDS OF PREY #1The creative team that transformed Harley Quinn forever returns to shake up her world once more-and this time, the gloves are off! Harley Quinn has avoided Gotham City ever since she broke up with The Joker and found a home, and a kind of family, in Coney Island. But when she gets an offer she can’t refuse, she has no choice but to slip back into the city as quietly as she can, hoping to be gone before anyone-especially her ex-learns she’s been there. But for Harley, “as quietly as she can” is plenty loud…and before she can say “Holee bounty hunters, Batman,” The Joker’s sicced every super-villain in the city on her pretty ombré head-and the only team tough enough (or crazy enough) to come to her defense is the Birds of Prey! The foul-mouthed, no-holds-barred sequel to one of DC’s raciest runs is here! Get on board early, before we come to our senses!
