70 years ago, Dinah Lance made her debut in DC’s Flash Comics #86 as the Black Canary, a badass femme fatale who infiltrated organized crime syndicates to destroy them from the inside out. In celebration of Dinah’s legacy, DC’s just dropped a new, three-song EP tied to the character’s more modern self.
Arrow’s fourth season saw actor Katie Cassidy depart the show, as Laurel Lance perished in the line of duty as Black Canary. Although the show has moved on with Laurel’s successor, Cassidy is making a return to the show as a new regular star. But she won’t be playing the Laurel Lance we all said goodbye to before.
Ever since Laurel Lance died, Arrow has been tiptoeing around the question of who could carry on the Black Canary mantle. In last night’s episode, we got the answer—and this time, unlike the Lance sisters, she’s as close to the authentic comic book version of Black Canary as you could want.
If you’ve not been following along with Annie Wu and Brenden Fletcher’s excellent Black Canary comic, you might have missed that Dinah Lance is balancing life as a superhero with also being a kick-ass rock star. Now, Black Canary will release an EP that you can actually listen to.
At first I thought it was a little weird that DC Collectibles’ Arrow series didn’t make a Laurel figure — but I’m kind of glad they waited. Instead of a “Laurel Lance, DA, with hamfisted pill addiction plotline action!” toy getting made, we’re getting an awesome Black Canary version of her. Yay!
With the announcement that the CW is expanding its superhero show roster with an Atom/Firestorm/Black Canary team-up show, it looks like we might finally be getting something Smallville tried (and ultimately failed) to do: Create the Justice League on television. But this time, it might actually work.
When Marvel announced that its next round of movies would include a Captain Marvel movie, we were thrilled. Yes, a major Marvel movie featuring a popular and wonderful female superhero. But amidst that celebration, let's not forget there are still tons of worthy female superheroes who would make excellent movie…
Sarah Lance has fallen, but her sister Laurel has taken up her mantle and plans to protect Starling City as the new Black Canary on Arrow. As seen in this first official pic, Laurel certainly looks the part, but is she ready? (Answer: Almost certainly not. But hey, presentation is still half the battle, right?)
The DC Nation shorts consistently deliver incredibly fun superhero action sequences that we wish were part of a half-hour show. In these shorts, a futuristic version of Green Arrow patrols the robot-filled streets with his artificially intelligent bow and Black Canary.
The latest installment of Kate Beaton's Hark! A Vagrant stars the Black Canary, who finds herself in an unexpected place—a music venue.
Wonder Woman artist Cliff Chiang celebrates the Amazonian princess — as well as the Black Canary, Zatanna, and Batgirl — by placing them in an all-girl rock band. Love Wonder Woman rocking the Joan Jett hair, and those star-spangled pants don't look half bad.
Pop artist Des Taylor blends his fascination with 1950s pinup art and animation-inspired superhero designs to imagine the retro-style magazines Marvel and DC characters might have graced in the sixties and seventies.
Earlier this week, we showed you Hillary White's amazingly bizarre mashups of pop culture characters with classic paintings. Now other artists are getting in on the act, taking Wolverine, Black Canary, and a host of other heroes out of their normal comic book element and putting them in pieces of fine art.
Last week on Batman: The Brave and The Bold, the Birds of Prey ranked the sexual prowess of DC's superheroes, in song. Batman landed on top, but Aquaman and the Flash didn't fare so well. You're going to enjoy this.
In the world of comics, superheroes - like movies - have sequels. This wasn't always the case, and, confusingly, still isn't; Superman is still Clark Kent and Batman is still Bruce Wayne (Let's just ignore that whole "Battle For The Cowl" thing for now, huh?) despite the fact that they've fought for justice alongside…
As the American economy crashes and burns around our ears, it's comforting to know that the comic industry is doing its bit to help out your bank balance by having an exceptionally quiet week filled with... well, not an awful lot of things to look at, really. Isn't it unusually reassuring to know that someone out…
Click to viewEnjoyed last night's Heroes, but thought that some scenes were a little... underwhelming? You weren't alone; series director Greg Beeman has been spilling the beans on what was originally planned for last night's three set-pieces before budgetary concerns forced them to bring everything back down to…
You never really realize how unpractical a superhero outfit is until you see it in real life. Barbie's new superhero collection debuts with DC Comic's sonic-screaming badass Black Canary, in all her fish leggy glory (suitable for collectors above the age of 14). I forgot how ridiculously slutty Dinah could look…
