Who is Oracle? That is the question that's been ruffling the feathers of Batgirl, and her Birds of Prey, Huntress and Black Canary as of late. This new and dangerous Oracle is helping the mobster Fenice (aka "Phoenix") wipe out the Falcone family, but our trio of crime fighters are on the case in Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #3.

Unfortunately for them, Oracle has a back up plan that involves some cold-blooded killers! Snakes come to town, and Copperhead, The Asp, Cottonmouth, and Lady Viper might just be the most venomous foes the Birds have ever faced.

Published by DC Comics, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey #3 drops tomorrow, Oct. 12. But, as a nice post New York Comic Con treat, we wanted to give you an exclusive sneak peak at a few pages. In the preview below, we flash back to Dinah's past, before returning to the present where the Birds are plotting their next move. The mystery of Oracle is slowly unfolding, and clues abound!

The book is written by Julie and Shawna Benson, with art by Claire Roe, cover by Yanick Paquette, and variant cover by Kamome Shirahama. Check out our preview, and if you dig what you see, pick up the issue tomorrow. And keep an eye out for our upcoming interview with Julie and Shawna from NYCC 2016!
