Black Canary

  1. The Psychology of Inspirational Women: Black Canary (Laurel Lance)

    The Background: Black Canary is the alter ego of Dinah Laurel Lance, and was one of the first DC female superheroes, along with Wonder Woman. Black Canary’s initial name in DC comics was Dinah Drake, and in the later series the Black Canary was based on two separate people – mother (Dinah Drake) and daughter (Dinah Laurel Lance). In the comics Black Canary temporarily worked with the Justice League and also with Oracle (formerly, Batgirl).

  3. Let’s Take a Minute To Celebrate The Awesome Female Creators At DC Comics

    Yesterday the annual DC summit wrapped up at their new offices in Burbank, California, and clearly a good time was had by all (though it would have been better if they've stayed in New York City and we got to hang out with them... shh, no, Victoria, don't be jealous). Here we have Babs Tarr (Batgirl), Ming Doyle (Dark Universe), Becky Cloonan (Gotham Academy), Annie Wu (Black Canary), and Genevieve Valentine (Catwoman).

  4. Things We Saw Today: Everything Is Awesome! At the BAFTAs, Anyway

    Take that, Oscars.

    The LEGO Movie got the appreciation it so richly deserved at the biggest awards ceremony in filmmaking: the BAFTAs. Fun fact: There used to be an award show people really liked called the "Academy Awards" or  "Oscars," and then everyone got the sense that they were out of touch and stopped caring.

  8. Arrow‘s Caity Lotz Talks Sara Lance and Media Representation At New Orleans Wizard World Comic Con

    One of the more popular panel at last weekend’s Wizard World Comic Con New Orleans was a very laid back, casual chat with Caity Lotz (Arrow/The Machine/Mad Men), where she spent the better part of an hour laughing and answering fan questions about everything from her role on Arrow to women in films to LGBT representation in television and comic books. Did you miss it? That’s ok; I’m here for you. I’m magnanimous like that.

  14. Paul Dini Wants Female Fans to Read Black Canary/Zatanna OGN

    Highly Successful Marketing Strategies

    Paul Dini has been pretty outspokenly pro-female fans in the past, even in the face of direct opposition.  He's also well-known for writing a lot of female characters that do well with female fans, such as Harley Quinn and Catwoman.  But Dini admits that many female fans of comics characters were made fans by other media outside of comics because of the success of shows like Batman: The Animated Series.  It is those fans that he hopes to attract with the upcoming Black Canary and Zatanna: Bloodspell original graphic novel with artist Joe Quinones.

  15. The Superhero Art of Brittney Williams

    Brittney Williams just put up some charming X-Ladies art on her Tumblr, but she's got some equally adorable and expressive characters studies of the Daily Planet staff, the Wonder Twins, Black Canary and Green Arrow, and even herself. Hey, we think drawing amazing superladies totally counts as a superpower. You can find the rest of her art at her Deviant Art page.

  17. Our First Look at Black Canary in Arrow

    Supergirly

    She's not Dinah "Laurel" Lance, but even without fishnets and with a mask, that's a pretty recognizable Black Canary. MTV says they think she's holding a sword, but I'm not so sure. Could just be a tapering baton. Caity Lotz will be playing a role that the creators have called the "beginning" of their Black Canary story, so I think it's safe to hold on to hopes or expectations that a Dinah will be in the role eventually.

  19. Are The Birds Of Prey Set For An Appearance On Arrow Season 2?

    DO WANT

    We already had a Birds of Prey television show. While it wasn't quite what everyone would have hoped for, I stand by my love for it. The next time we saw Black Canary was on Smallville and that's all I have to say about that. But last season on Arrow we were introduced to Huntress and we know a new Canary will appear in Season 2. Can they complete the trifecta and get us a Barbara Gordon for a new Birds of Prey team? Hit the jump to find out!

  20. Paul Dini and Joe Quinones’ Black Canary/Zatana to Debut in 2014

    Supergirly

    As one of the creators of Batman: The Animated Series and Justice LeaguePaul Dini is a name I trust with superheroic women, both in adaptation and in original characters like Harley Quinn. And Joe Quinones is an artist whose work is also very familiar to comic readers who like their women like they like their medical textbooks: anatomically correct (to be more specific, these days, you can enjoy his work in a lot of Marvel books and the covers of Captain Marvel). Which is why it's very cool to hear that the two of them will be collaborating on a story-contained graphic novel featuring Black Canary and Zatanna teaming up, due to hit shelves next May. Check Comics Alliance for a few more preview panels and a possible synopsis.
