DC Announces New Bird of Prey Series by Gail Simone and Ed Benes


DC Comics have just announced that they will be launching a new series of Bird of Prey, which is set to be written by Gail Simone, with artwork by Ed Benes.

This new series, beginning this spring, will see Simone return to writing duties on the title after a three year absence. Simone’s run on Bird of Prey is seen by many fans as one of the very best eras in the history of the title. Ed Benes also worked with Simone for many issue of her iconic run, and will be returning with her to launch the new series.

This new title will also bear the ‘Brightest Day‘ banner, tying it into the events of DC’s 26-issue, bi-weekly followup to Blackest Night (see here).

In an interview at AOL, Simone have fans the following hints about events in the upcoming series:

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.
