The New 52 - Black Canary by Femmes-Fatales The New 52 - Black Canary by Femmes-Fatales
Here's the sixth pin-up in a new series I'm doing called The Women of the New 52. This one is of the blond bombshell Black Canary!

As the leader of the covert team known as the Birds of Prey, Black Canary is a commanding figure whose martial arts skills are near unmatched. With her Canary Cry and her brand spanking new costume, Black Canary has been busting heads for the past nine months alongside teammates Starling (apparently an old friend), Poison Ivy, Katana, and Batgirl. Though it's evident that her history has been altered, Dinah Lance's personality and "essence" has stayed the same. Duane Swierczynski is writing the character so well I almost don't care about the changes made to her biography. :)

Like many of the characters in DC Comics' New 52, Black Canary received a redesigned costume by Jim Lee. By and large, he did seem to want her to look stealthy and adopted a ninja meets black ops aesthetic for the design. Naturally, I wasn't too crazy about the look initially but I now love it. It's much more practical than the get-ups she's paraded around in before. It's great to see her with adequate support. I can't imagine she'd actually be able to kick butt in a strapless top and high heeled boots... and yet she did in the Pre-Flashpoint continuity. Shame on any artist who thinks that breasts magically stay inside a top without any support while doing martial arts. I had fun drawing Dinah here and went for a more "action-y" pose. Since I've been showing off powers/abilities/weapons in this series, I figure it'd be cool to show Dinah doing a stylized fight pose.

Want more DCnU ladies?

Black Canary is my favorite hero in the whole DCverse. I can't adequately explain how much she means to me. Obviously this outfit is much more practical... but I still don't like it.

Great job with the pose, though.

Her costume improve very much on N52
- She has hidden ninja stars on her costume
- her fishnets can autorrepare themself with nanorobots
- pockets to store objects
- body armor that cover almost the entire body exept her head.
- No heels but light and pratical shoes
- Tight costume and still very sexy look.

I take it you've been reading BoP every month and will be picking up Team 7?

Yes. Soon. I've also been rereading the older BOP. Oooh the good ol' days, right?

"Older BoP" is pretty relative now given the fact that there have been three ongoing series and a lot of people would call Gail Simone's first run "older BoP." Heh. Is it Chuck Dixon-era or Simone-era? :P I'll admit the Chuck Dixon stuff is pretty forgettable and the title really never picked up steam until Gail Simone came on. It really flourished as a team book in a way it never quite did as a duo book. That's obviously what the new book goes for (the team vibe) and I'm really digging the new team since Starling is such a fantastic character. As I said in the comment on Starling's piece, I thought I would miss Huntress and Lady Blackhawk but Starling totally surpasses them in the awesomeness category. I'm looking forward to the retelling of Canary and Batgirl's first meeting in BoP #0.
