From the pages of Birds of Prey and the forthcoming Justice League of America (Issue #1 out next Wednesday 20 February) comes the spinoff character nobody wanted to read more of – Katana!

As is usual with a first issue of the New 52, there’s no context or background to the newly launched series: does Katana’s story take place before or after her stint in the Birds of Prey? Is this series a lead-in to the Jla or completely separate, or will it run parallel to that series? No clue.

Katana herself remains underdeveloped as a character – she’s got mad fighting skills and is handy with her sword, she talks about getting better at fighting, talks about being monogamous to her dead husband (who possessed her sword when he was murdered) and that’s about it. She is a very dull character to sustain her own series – there’s very little »
