From The Editor’s Desk: Janelle Asselin on BIRDS OF PREY

Like most DC editors, I’m not just an editor - I’m also a fan. And the book that made me a DC fan was BIRDS OF PREY. I’ve read a lot of DC books over the years, but BIRDS is the book that really hooked me. So when we were originally told that DC was bringing back BIRDS OF PREY in 2010, I may have knocked a few people over in claiming editorial rights to the book. I thought I was excited then.

It’s nothing to how excited I am right now.

Which one of you is Oracle?

The Death of Oracle continues in BIRDS OF PREY #8, as the twisted villain Mortis has Black Canary, Huntress, Dove and Lady Blackhawk cornered. Can Oracle and Batman help them in time? And is Dove's ruse enough to keep them at bay long enough for help to arrive?

Gail Simone and Guillem March's BIRDS OF PREY #8 ties in to the Batman Incorporated storyline and hits stores today.
