The Birds of Prey

Collecting Black Canary
The Silver Age, 1963-1969

Black Canary Classic

In this list:
SHOWING means that Black Canary is in the story briefly — anywhere from a cameo shot to a few, fleeting frames — but impacts on the overall story very little
FEATURED means that Black Canary plays an active, supporting role in the story
STARRING means just that, too — that Black Canary is the main focus of the story (the term CO-STARRING is used for most Birds of Prey story appearances and a few of Black Canary's appearances when she is clearly acting in a starring role but is not the only character doing so).

Please Note: Appearance lists are organized alphabetically by comic title and then in ascending chronological order by comic publication date.

Essential Reading: I've put a Essential Reading beside all appearances I consider "Essential Reading" for Dinah Lance fans. The Black Canary Archives, published in early 2001 by DC Comics is absolutely Essential Reading for serious Black Canary fans. It collects all of her solo Golden Age appearances (primarily in Flash Comics) in one place and throws in her early non-JLA-related Silver Age appearances Brave & the Bold and in Adventure Comics. One-stop shopping. I've also marked a few other issues below as Essential Reading for the pre-Crisis Canary afficionado.
