DC's The Source has announced that the Birds Of Prey are returning!  When is the series coming back?  This April.  The series will be written by none other than Gail Simone who will be joined by artist Ed Benes.  You might remember the work they did on the previous Birds Of Prey series.

  Gail Simone said:

“I am really excited and I missed those characters terribly. I miss almost every book I’ve ever written, but the Birds have a special place in my heart and brain.”

Will you be adding this book to your pull list?  Also in April, DC will be releasing Brightest Day titles along with The Flash and the Justice League, Generation Lost titles.  Start saving your money.  Are you happy to see the Birds of Prey return?  How do you feel about the series being canceled and now returning?  Do you think they should continue as issue #128 or start over with a new #1?

No bat ears. Methinks it's Red Hood and Scarlet.

The girls are back in town!

@Scottyb: I was thinking that as well. but y'know Batwoman doesn't have big ears or maybe that's my wishful thinking. Plus Scarlett's cape doesn't flow that way. Then again, this is Benes.
#9 Posted by burr787 (2422 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it's Hawk and Dove. Scarlet doesn't have a pony tale and the cape reminds me of Dove's. The guy doesn't exactly look like Hawk, so maybe he's out of the picture. Overall, not excited, this is indefinitely going to hurt Batgirl's sales(my second favorite new Batbook). Not to mention that I hate Lady Blackhawk, Black Canary, and Batwoman.

I am glad they are back! I love Birds Of Prey, especially Oracle!

Well, with Gail Simone attached to the project. This should be interesting. She really seems to 'get' how to write female characters well. I remember she wrote a really good animated short for the Tomb Raider Re/visioned series. If they had made that into a regular show I would of watched it.
 
Do they really need a shadow to hide the fact that is Stephanie Brown back there?

#17 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (84704 posts) - - Show Bio

I love BoP. That shadow in the back ground seriously looks like it could be....Batgirl/Cassandra Cain :D

@Gambler: cough obsessive cough but yeah it does look like Cassie! actually i looked again i think it may be where Step is ending up, look at the hair out the back Cassie never had hair hanging out
 
sigh, another one for the list

Unless Steph is getting yet another new costume and has shrunk, I doubt it is her.
 
@.Mistress Redhead.:
LOL shudaup
#20 Posted by Jaylayson (72 posts) - - Show Bio

I think it will be great with Gain attached.  It will go on my pull list.  I think the one character in the back group is Flame Bird/Bettie

idk it could be Steph... alternate costume as BG is coming back

@.Mistress Redhead.: Its possible, but if it was Steph they would have drawn her falling on her face or crashing into somebody :P

Secret Six is amazing but it just doesn't scratch the same itch.

Yeah yeah. Seriously though, I hope its not Steph. We (the fans) really don't need her running around in two titles. I also cant wait to see Black Canary and Oracle back together.

@Gambler: i am only reading it for Oracle, i can not enjoy BC at all

Gail simone and Ed Benes back on Birds of Prey, all is right with the world

I use to feel the same way until I read the arc in which Lady Shiva switches lives with Black Canary and the two of them form a weird friendship. The DCU female street level/martial arts characters are my fav.
#29 Posted by FoxxFireArt (3404 posts) - - Show Bio
@.Mistress Redhead.: 
Well, how many characters in the DC Universe have the Bat-fringed capes and are female right now?
 
There also appears to be a second shadow below her of someone I can't identify. There aren't enough features to distinguish. Though, it looks more masculine.

  Comicbook fans in general. We had a meeting and I was nominated as the national spokesmen.

agreed, if not steph then who? the hair says not Cassie unless she has changed her look, could be batwoman but i dont see it. we shall see i guess.
#38 Posted by FoxxFireArt (3404 posts) - - Show Bio
@.Mistress Redhead.: 
Also the fact that Oracle is involved speaks to Stephanie. Seeing how Barbara is over seeing Stephanie's progression as Batgirl. Would seem odd to have Barbara and not Stephanie.
 
Perhaps Stephanie can use this as a growing experience to learn from other super heroines.

YES! Oh wait..this means I have to start saving more money for this series! Oh well - I don't really need both my kidneys.... I wonder - will they battle the Gotham City Sirens???
#40 Posted by Zoom (14668 posts) - - Show Bio

But....Gail Simone doesn't understand Hawk and Dove.  :(  
 
She was behind their terrible story a few years ago in Teen Titans. 
 
She needs Barbara Kesel to tell her whats up.

This reunion makes me a little nervous. On one hand it's always great to see certain characters together and written by a specific writer. But is this going back just to go back Titans reunited the eighties team everyone loved but soon they started to hate it and hopefully that won't be the same thing here.

#42 Posted by Ryonslaught (1214 posts) - - Show Bio

loks like steph will be joining......good stuff

#43 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (84704 posts) - - Show Bio

There's no way that it is Stephine Brown.

#44 Posted by PrinceIMC (5422 posts) - - Show Bio

What about Misfit? Is she gonna be in this?

#45 Posted by GreenGriffin (67 posts) - - Show Bio

alright, Hawk and Dove!
#46 Posted by sora_thekey (8185 posts) - - Show Bio

Cool... When I started to look for a DC title to read, I wanted to read Birds of Prey, but when I was going to buy it the cover said.... "Last Issue" 
 
So this is exciting for me... I finally read this title!
#47 Posted by AMP - Seeker of Lost Knowledge (1162 posts) - - Show Bio

 Finally....VOLUME 2! I guess that Misfit will be back....but who is the other mystery shadow in the back? I hope this new volume works out.

#48 Posted by danhimself (22713 posts) - - Show Bio

written by Gail Simone?  drawn by Ed Benes?  am I going to read this?  you're damn right I am!!!

#49 Posted by Jean_Luc_LeBeau (84704 posts) - - Show Bio

Hopefully Shiva makes a couple appearances.
