Birds of Prey Gets New Creative Team
By Brian Jacks
DC Comics has announced that beginning with June's issue #56, BIRDS OF PREY will have a new creative team, as Gail Simone (Agent X) makes her DC Universe writing debut, joining forces with Ed Benes & Alex Lei (Supergirl) on the series.
"BIRDS OF PREY is a dream assignment for me," says Simone. "Black Canary and Oracle have been two of my favorite characters for ages, and writing them is just dangerously fun. No matter what else, the readers are promised a good, noisy time. Our goal is to make the most entertaining DCU book we could, and we think it's going to be hot!"
"Gail's witty storytelling and powerful scripts are an artist's dream," says Lysa Hawkins, editor on the series. "At the same time, Ed's and Alex's work just gets hotter with every page. I am thrilled to work with this creative, lively team. And if Black Canary and Oracle aren't enough for you, just wait until Huntress...well, that's another story."
