MISSING: Cassandra Cain

DC Solicit for March

Birds of Prey #10
Written by GAIL SIMONE
This is it! The astonishing conclusion to “The Death of Oracle,” featuring nearly everyone whose life has been touched by Oracle – villain and hero! How will the DCU operate without its premier infojock, and how will this event affect the Birds of Prey? All this, plus a fan-favorite operative works with the Birds for the first time ever!

Cover. Cassandra Cain. Not There. BLEEPING F.A.I.L.!

Another nail hammered into the coffin! ["Coffin" being my wallet being opened to buy another BoP issue].

*scoff* "Family is not always home." How true this statement is!

"a fan-favorite operative works with the Birds for the first time ever!"
Whether this statement refers to Cass is...very questionable. She's worked with Babs, of course, and Dinah, and has been together with the whole BoP crew before minus Dove and Hawk (plus, she's been in over 5 BoP issues AND has a character profile in the BoP Secret Files & Origins issue).

My point is that if Cassandra Cain isn't in this issue this title will be dropped indefinitely from my pull list and I will ignore its existence. I won't support a book and author that would blatantly ignore one of the most important characters in Barbara Gordon's life. Cass was her best operative during her NML days. Cass saved her dad's life TWICE. Cass was the first ward she's ever taken under her wing. Not including her in this issue will be more than a slap to the faces of Cassandra Cain fans. It will be downright insulting! Hell, not including her on the cover is already teetering on the line of insult. We will see.

Until then, all I can say is:
