Let's face it, the comic-book industry has often unkind to the fairer sex. Some stories were undeniably sexist (like when Sue Storm was actually referred to as the "weakest" member of the Fantastic Four), and others were outright misogynistic (Barbara Gordon's disgusting treatment in "The Killing Joke" comes to mind). But here is a comic book starring women and written by a woman where the ladies finally get the respectful treatment they so richly deserve! Gail Simone is a master at characterization, and she does an excellent job giving the three lead heroines their own distinct personalities and making them all compelling.
If you're looking for a graphic novel starring strong, charismatic, intelligent women, then Gail Simone's incredible "Bird of Prey" run is the book for you, and it starts with this edition.
