DC Reboot – Birds of Prey and More Creative Teams Announced
It looks like DC wasn't happy with just revealing four creative teams today and have decided to announce another four creative teams. Before we get to that the rumor mill is speculating that Jeff Lemire is going to be writing Animal Man. At this rate I don't know what DC's going to announce at Comic Con, but it should at least be filled with creators that can actually talk about what they're working on since it will be all new and fresh!
The highly-anticipated new series from the multiple award-winning creative team of J.H. Williams III, Haden Blackman and Amy Reeder begins in BATWOMAN #1.
Batgirl’s going to have to face the city’s most horrifying new villains as well as dark secrets from her past in BATGIRL #1, the stunning debut issue from fan-favorite writer Gail Simone and artists Ardian Syaf and Vicente Cifuentes.
Meet Catwoman. She’s addicted to the night. Addicted to shiny objects. Addicted to Batman. Most of all, Catwoman is addicted to danger. She can’t help herself, and the truth is – she doesn’t want to. She’s good at being bad, and very bad at being good. Find out more about what makes Catwoman tick in CATWOMAN #1, written by Judd Winick and illustrated by Guillem March.
The Birds of Prey are Gotham City’s covert ops team, taking down the villains other heroes can’t touch. Mystery novelist ands comics writer Duane Swierczynski teams up with Jesus Saiz for BIRDS OF PREY #1, the first issue of the hard-hitting new series.
Right now I'm least excited about Judd Winick on Catwoman. I hope his take on the character is more interesting then his one on Jason Todd. Also the Birds of Prey actually look interesting! It looks like a mesh of old Birds of Prey, Gotham Sirens and Secret Six. Lastly I'm a bit under excited now that Gail Simone is official on Batgirl... I was hoping the relaunch would be handled by a dynamic writer not someone who plays it safe and writes each issue from a formula. What else does DC have in store for us this week? Or even today?
