THE BIRDS OF PREY will return!
DC Comics announced today the return of BIRDS OF PREY, a long-running title that folded last year when the company decided to kill off Bruce Wayne (he'll be back this Spring too). BIRDS grew to be one of my favorite titles mostly because Gail Simone's sharp writing. Some of my favorite female DCU characters appeared in BOP during it's initial run including Barbara Gordon (former Batgirl, now known as Oracle), Black Canary, The Huntress and Lady Blackhawk. Others cool chicks who passed through over the years include Vixen, Gypsy, Power Girl, Manhunter and Black Alice. From the cover of the first new issue, it looks like most of the Birds are back with two new additions. I hope to do a more in-depth report on the series in time for the relaunch later this year.
