The Gotham city sirens series is a good series it's always fun to see how the other side operates I liked elements of the story as I bought most of the series in one go I found it to be a series of moments rather than a great story but I'm hoping story writers better than me can take the series in more interesting ways.

Excellent 29 Dec. 2010
By Laura Wiand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Got this as a Christmas present from my husband and found it to be a great read on some of my favorite characters. The art is beautiful and I enjoyed the plots and writing and am now looking to pick up the first volume to add to my collection.

Having managed an animal shelter for five years and owning five cats myself, I'd like to add that I didn't feel the scenes listed in the spoilers on the other review were nearly so disturbing nor did I feel they were making a joke out of animal cruelty and that's coming from someone who's seen how truly heinous human beings can be to animals.

Not All By Paul Dini 2 Jan. 2011
By Sir Ratesabunch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Amazon lists Paul Dini as the sole author, but as far as I remember, he only wrote 2 or 3 issues here. The other stories are still good reads, though the tones throughout seem much more dark and gruesome than the first volume. For me, Poison Ivy took a step back from her growth in the first volume as well. The art is great throughout, there is a fair bit of humor, but overall, I prefer the first volume. This is personal preference though, as I enjoy the lighthearted more by nature, but this is a quality product, and good value for money at the $14 sale it's on.

A recommended read for any teen interested in supporting Batman characters 9 April 2012
By GraphicNovelReporter.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The concept of Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn deciding to live together under one roof sounds like it might work as half a season of MTV's The Real World reality show. The idea, kind of a reverse-Birds of Prey idea, features these three villains teaming up for support, as opposed to Oracle-organized heroes who band together to fight crime. Understandably, the ladies never refer to themselves as "Sirens"--which is nice. I don't think referring to themselves as a team unit would have been realistic. Or as realistic as a trade collection about a plant lady and two women dressed up as a cat and a clown could be, respectively.

This collection, the second volume, picks up as the DC universe was facing the Blackest Night event. An old Batman villain, Black Mask, had been murdered by Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, after her brother-in-law had been savagely murdered by the fiend and her sister had been forced to watch. Resurrected by a black power ring, Black Mask initially targets Selina while she's prowling the rooftops and thieving away, hoping to take advantage of the disaster-like situation. After a short battle, he realizes that the best way to cause Selina pain is to go after her estranged sister, who has since been committed, and whom Selina never really visits.

Quinn and Ivy arrive on the scene to help her. The trio eventually manage to stop Black Mask, but Selina's sister runs off for parts unknown. She eventually bonds with some sort of "angel"-like being, who grants her superhuman powers. Calling herself "Sister Zero" after Harley makes fun of her, she dedicates herself to destroying the "demon" inside her sister Selina: a demon she believes to be Catwoman. Other stories include the ladies partnering up with Edward Nygma, the reformed Riddler, and a brief investigation into disappearing animals around their neighborhood. Harley and Selina also save Poison Ivy from a copycat plant killer.

The real strength of this collection is the characterization. Paul Dini wrote each of these characters during his stint co-creating and writing Batman: The Animated Series. He is, in fact, the creator of Harley Quinn as a character and it shows: She's actually quite hilarious here. His arc with Poison Ivy is interesting. She worries she is becoming more plant than human, and eventually takes a job at S.T.A.R. labs in order to resume her research interests into botany. This unfortunately often separates her from Selina and Harley, but creates an interesting dynamic between those two characters. Tony Bedard is also credited as writing some issues.

Although illustrated by various artists, the essence of each character is captured completely from issue to issue. A recommended read for any teen interested in supporting Batman characters, and a great collection to give to a young girl looking for a female-centric superhero book.

Gotham City BFFs 22 Aug. 2012
By Murl J. Sprout Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It was pretty good. It's the first "middle of the road" DC comic I've read. Usually they're either really great or really awful with about a 10/90 split. It's a high middle of the road, however, so - grading it on a curve because it's DC - I give it five stars for what would in the Marvel Universe only get four.

Gotham City Sirens Volume 2: Songs of the Sirens shows us more activities and antics from Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn after they've moved in together. Instead of their usual law-breaking hijinks, these three BFFs end up helping each other with relatively personal problems (that still involve quite a bit more adventure than the typical occupants of a suite in an average girls' dorm encounter).

Catwoman's already sanity-challenged sister endures further adversity, Ivy is framed for murder but finds an ally in Commissioner Gordon, and Harley adopts a couple unusual stray animals with relatively horrific (and relatively humorous) consequences.

The most pleasant surprise, for me, was the appearance of my favorite Batman villain - The Riddler. I know I'm supposed to think The Joker is the greatest, but I just love Eddie. Smarter and funnier than Batman, Edward "Riddler" Nigma turns every character he stands next to into his personal straight man. Except, of course, when he's standing next to Harley. Watching Nigma try, oh so patiently, to interview Harley about the girls' final bit of trouble is like watching "Who's On First" for the very first time. Nigma actually getting his feelings hurt was the most unexpected bit of villain vulnerability I've seen since Joker, when an aging Mr. J kneels in front of an older Harley, hugging her legs with his cheek pressed against her stomach and ... was he actually crying?

There are many more surprises in this book and it is, absolutely, an hour or two well spent.

Sirens is one of the greatest off-the-wall series' I've read. I am a HUGE Ivy fan and Harley/Catwoman are not far behind. These books are all fantastic.
