Bolton Black Canary

Black Canary leaps into action in this fabulous painting by John Bolton.  Black Canary is a great character with some rich history.  Created by Robert Kanigher and artist Carmine Infantino, she first appeared in Flash Comics #86.  Or rather her mother did.  To explain comics’ sliding timeline, she was divided into two characters (a mother and a daughter).   Did you know that she is one of the first superheroines of that generation and was a member of  the first comics superhero team The Justice League?
