Black Canary first appeared in Flash Comics #86 as a guest hero/villain for character Johnny Thunder appearing for five issues until gaining her own feature starting with issue #92 through the series end in #104.

Starman and Black Canary[edit]

Black Canary headlined two issues of The Brave and the Bold with Starman in a trial run from issues #61 and #62 that didn't lead to a series.[1]

Unpublished 1984 miniseries[edit]

A miniseries by writer Greg Weisman and artist Mike Sekowsky was planned in 1984. The first issue of the series was pencilled, but the project was ultimately shelved due to the character being used in writer/artist Mike Grell's high profile Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters series. Elements from the ill-fated project were used for Weisman's DC Showcase: Green Arrow short film.[2]

Volume 1[edit]

Volume 1 of Black Canary (November 1991 - February 1992) was a four issue miniseries written by Sarah Byam and drawn by Trevor Von Eeden with inking by Dick Giordano.[3]

Volume 2[edit]

After the success of the miniseries Byam and Von Eeden returned for a monthly series that ran for 12 issues (January 1993 - December 1993) before its cancellation.[4]

Volume 3[edit]

Volume 3 was a four issue miniseries (Early September 2007 - Late October 2007) that chronicled Black Canary's adventures with her daughter Sin escaping the clutches of the League of Assassins. the series was written by Tony Bedard with art by Paulo Siqueira. It filled the story gap between Black Canary's appearance in Birds of Prey and Green Arrow.[5]
