DC has announced that a long awaited Black Canary/Zatanna story by Paul Dini will finally see print. The new 94 page OGN will feature more traditional versions of the character (read: pre New 52) and will be illustrated by Joe Quinones. The book will come out May 2014.
Here's a summary of the series, courtesy of Comics Alliance:
Martial arts mistress, superhero, Bird of Prey, and biker boots fashion pioneer Dinah Lance aka Black Canary defeats some dangerous women baddies whose fearsome leader refuses to be taken alive. She dies, but not before swearing vengeance on Canary from beyond the grave. A year later, some kind of supernatural force is taking out the remaining girl gang members with Black Canary seemingly next in line, prompting Dinah to look up her old friend, the magical mistress, Justice Leaguer and perennial cosplay inspiration Zatanna Zatara. Together the heroines take on this unholy evil, who has a talent for using Zatanna and Dinah’s talents and shortcomings against each other.
