Here is some welcome news for those who have been lost without their Birds of Prey action – the series is returning in the Spring.Â And to answer the question that is ready to burst from your mouth, yes, Gail Simone will be writing.Â Join Simone will be Ed Benes, and all I can say is, “hubba-hubba”.
â€œI am really excited and I missed those characters terribly. I miss almost every book Iâ€™ve ever written, but the Birds have a special place in my heart and brain,” said Simone.
Check out the promo bit that DC released on their website.Â The comic book publishers have been blacking out a lot of characters on covers for 2010 as part of the buildup, and the two masked out above should get a lot of you guessing.
According to Simone, the new series will be a little tougher and a little naughtier than the original run.Â And if you are looking for a sneak of what to expect, Simone said, “Someone wants the band back together, and it’s NOT the Birds. Zinda gets a date. A long-promised headquarters is built. Black Canary kicks ass. Huntress thinks a certain big league bat villain should be left to die. A bird is charged with murder. Another might be working for the other side. And Catman leaves a naughty phone message for the wrong person.”
How many people just went, “SQUEE!”
