The Birds of Prey

Collecting Oracle

Oracle

Please Note: As of Summer, 2006, I have stopped updating this Oracle collecting list. Barbara Gordon continues to be a driving force in Birds of Prey and all issues of that title are recommeded as Essential Reading for all Babs fans.

In this list:
SHOWING means that Babs 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 Babs plays an active, supporting role in the story
STARRING means just that, too — that Babs is the main focus of the story (the term "CO-STARRING" is used for most Birds of Prey story appearances and a few of Babs' 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.

"BoP!" indicates that the story includes an appearance by Babs & Dinah in BoP mode.

Essential Reading: I've put a Essential Reading beside all appearances I consider "Essential Reading" for Barbara Gordon fans. If you want to get a good, basic overview of Babs' post-Crisis history, pick up the starred issues.
