Birds of Prey #125

Overall- To take down the Silicon Syndicate, Oracle decides to try to capture one of the members of the Syndicate, and goes after the Caretaker, who is also the owner of eBuy. Oracle sets up the Caretaker by announcing that she had a fancy old car that she was going to sell to Hollywood so they could blow it up in some movie. Infuriated that someone would waste an antique car like that, the Caretaker, along with a bunch of assassins he hired from the Calculator, go after Oracle to steal the car. Oracle has Black Canary with her as back-up, and when Caretaker makes his move, Black Canary takes out the assassins, and Oracle and Canary take care of the Caretaker(Ha!).

In the meantime, Huntress and Infinity infiltrate the eBuy headquarters and discover that besides collecting classic cars the Caretaker has also been collecting people underneath the eBuy headquarters. Huntress manage to free the captives, and that's pretty much the end of this issue.

Not much of a review, I know, but reading this comic is kind of bittersweet, since I know in another 2 or 3 months, this series will be coming to an end. A lot of this issue also dealt with Oracle thinking back to her battle with the Joker last issue, and how she had him within her reach, if not for her wheelchair. Oracle seems to be acting more irresponsibly since her encounter with Joker, and Black Canary has picked up on this. Canary asks Oracle if she wants to talk about things, but Oracle bluntly states no. As for a score, this was an OK comic, but it just didn't do much for me, so I'll give it a 7 out of 10.
