White Wedding? I think NOT.


Black Canary’s Wedding Planner

I picked this one up on a whim. Black Canary getting married to Green Arrow seems like a bad idea. Either it’ll end in an almost-immediate divorce, or DC is going to kill one or both characters to prove how “edgy” they are. But I’d heard other people had liked this story, so I figured what the heck.

The plot revolves around Black Canary trying to do last-minute planning for the wedding. Ollie ends up taking over a lot of the work by calling in favors. Beside that, Dinah picks out her dress, picks out her bridesmaids, picks out her honeymoon lingerie. It’s all quite cute.

There are some problems. The comic I got had some printing mistakes — in my case, several pages that were duplicated or assembled out of order. I don’t think I missed any of the story, but it made it more difficult to keep track of what was going on. And as far as characterization goes, I can’t see Dinah picking Wonder Woman as a bridesmaid, and I sure can’t see Wondy going along on the lingerie shopping spree and trying on lingerie.

Verdict: I think I’ll go with a thumbs up. It’s a very lightweight story, but there’s nothing wrong with lightweight (and light-hearted) stories.
