Starting in May, the Birds of Prey will have a new ongoing artist. Adrian Syaf will be taking a new direction in comics as an artist of something else for DC (which hasn’t been released). While Gail Simone still is committed to being the writer of the series, she will need another artist to fill in the gaps. That artist will be Jesus Saiz. Yep, starting with Birds of Prey #12 Jesus will be the new ongoing artist for the series.
Writer Gail Simone shared her thoughts on new Birds Of Prey Artist
“It’s not a small order…it has to be someone who can draw action, humor, suspense, love, hate, beauty, villainy. It has to be someone who can draw beautiful women who can also kick your rear end. It’s a special book, we think, and it needs a special artist.
“And oh, boy, did we get one.
“Jesus is at the top of a very short list of dream artists on our, “Oh, man, wouldn’t HE be fantastic?” list. His previous work has been silky and sexy and powerful all at the same time. He’s fantastic with design, storytelling, body language…an artist this good frees up the writer to make the stories even bigger and more complex.
“We were lucky to get him, and when his first piece of art came in, the cover to Birds of Prey #12, we knew absolutely he was the perfect choice. We cannot WAIT for you to see his take on Dinah, Helena, Babs and Zinda. Together, we’re going to make 2011 the best year for Birds of Prey ever!”
For those who don’t know anything about Jesus’ artwork, he’s worked on the Brave and the bold series, Manhunter, Zatanna, and Gen 13. With a new artist and new story, get ready for the newest story arc in May for the Birds of Prey!
