Some great dynamic early-on between a guest-starring Batman (well --) and the gals.

As Bats advises them not to trust Poison Ivy, who gave her all to help in the defeat of a Talon during the Night of Owls event last month, the bat-gals try to return the favor as Ivy finds herself in a rather sticky wicket.

The chemistry on this all-female affair has really started to change my mind about this book, and that is no huge task. Thanks must be given to the sharp dialogue talents of scribe Duane Swierczynski, who seems to be able to tell these girls apart at various intervals when I am not sure the artist is.

That said, Travel Foreman does a fine job rendering this issue and showcasing each gal in the best -- and the worst -- of their natures as the assist for Ivy is on.

Birds of Prey#10 is not a perfect book, but I can see why its loyal fan base has remained thus.
