I kept putting off reading this because I wasn’t sure if it was worth the money. I mean, after all, it is about 1/3 of the size of a normal Fables novel and the same-ish price.

It’s time to check up with our resident comic geek, GothamGal, for her take on her newest graphic novel read. Check out her thoughts on women in comics, the graphic novel writers she loves and much, much more, as GothamGal takes on DC Comics’ Black Canary and Zatana: Bloodspell by Paul Dini and Joe Quinones.
