Bad news anon...
>>
it's one of those characters who has never really been in anything good but is a good concept in theory
>>
>>78861389

Katana's Nu52 series was fine. Main reason it failed is because no one gives a shit about Katana.
>>
>>78861389
Damn, that is a fine costume.

>>78861477
If she gets popular, its possible that DC puts some more effort into her, I think.
>>
Was the original Outsiders run not good? I was thinking of buying it.
>>
>>78861389
The first six issues of New 52 Birds of Prey were pretty good. I think she popped up in Lemire's Green Arrow, too.
>>
She's got that mini with Deadshot coming out this month
>>
Do you think they'll try another series when the movie comes out or will it be like Supergirl where she's weirdly MIA?
>>
>SUICIDE SQUAD MOST WANTED: DEADSHOT/KATANA #1
>Written by BRIAN BUCCELLATO and MIKE W. BARR
>Art by VIKTOR BOGDANOVIC, RICHARD FRIEND and DIOGENES NEVES
>Cover A featuring DEADSHOT by CARY NORD
>Cover B featuring KATANA by CARY NORD
>On sale JANUARY 27 • 48 pg, FC, 1 of 6, $4.99 US • RATED T
>Retailers: This issue will ship with two covers. Please see the order form for more information.
Two of the stars of next year’s highly anticipated action movie break out in their own solo adventures in this extra-sized, 6-issue miniseries!
>First, in a story by Brian Buccellato, Viktor Bogdanovic and Richard Friend, Deadshot is on the run, taking on a series of new contracts, and re-establishing himself as the world’s most deadly marksman. But things are about to get complicated for Floyd Lawton when a figure from his past threatens to expose a dark secret…and Deadshot gets word of his next target: Lex Luthor!
>Then, writer Mike W. Barr returns to the character he co-created in “Katana, Cult of the Kobra,” with art by Diogenes Neves. Katana needs to know more about Soultaker’s origin if she’s going to have any hope of controlling the sword instead of falling under its influence. Dr. Helga Jace, a Markovian astrophysicist, may be able to shed some light—but before Katana can get the info, Kobra’s forces attack!

She also has ties to the New52 Outsiders in Green Arrow as she is the rep of the Sword Clan
>>
>>78862387
I wonder if they're going to draw dead shot darker and darker until he looks like Will Smith.
>>
>>78862153
Remember when they had the brilliant idea of cancelling the TV show that had her as a main character?
>>
>>78862178


Yeah, I remember liking her just fine in Batman and the Outsiders. Though it has been 20 years since i've read that run.
>>
>>78861690
Wasn't it by ann nocenti? Fuck no man.

But yeah anon >>78862387
this should be a good read.
>>
Reminder that Katana's New52 ongoing almost had an awesome, unique art style but DC said no and settled for "house" style

She's in DC Superhero Girls.

The art on Katana was not house style at all.

Casuals spotted.

yeah that worked so well for Harley Quinn and the Guardians of the Galaxy
>>

>that worked so well for Harley Quinn
Well, yes.
>>
>>78861389
Uhh

>Batman and the Outsiders from the 80s
>The first arc of New 52 Birds of Prey

Her New 52 solo was horrible and I highly doubt the upcoming mini will be very good. Perhaps "okay" is the best we can hope for.

If she doesn't die in the movie and is well received I can see DC trying another solo out.

New52 run was 7/10. And one-shot in evils month about her enemy fine too
>>
>>78869174
For first-line-comics of New52 it was ok, cause others were totally crap
>>
>>78869174
>Batman and the Outsiders from the 80s
>remembering there was an implied lesbian relationship with Katana and another Outsider character
Doubt that carried over to Katana's recent incarnations

It had some Grell flavor and everything.

It's not canon but you could try David Mack's fanfic. It's really well done.

She was fun in that show, but the re-working of the Soultaker sword and the lack of her husband was weird.
>>
>>78873497
I didn't like how she was treated like a rookie that needed training when she was supposed to be ex-CIA and joined the League of Assassins undercover.
