We’ve seen this question posed here in The Source’s comments section a lot these last two weeks, and we couldn’t be more excited to give you an answer. Starting in May with issue #12, Jesus Saiz will be joining BIRDS OF PREY as the regular ongoing artist. Writer Gail Simone shared with us just what it takes to draw BIRDS OF PREY:
Why are the Secret Six helping Lex Luthor? Lex doesn't want to take Vandal Savage on by himself, so he hires Scandal and her teammates to lend him a hand against the immortal villain. But why would they agree to help him? What does Lex Luthor offer that would convince the Secret Six to help out the most notorious man in Metropolis? ACTION COMICS #896 is the first of a two-part crossover with Secret Six #29, and hits stores on Wednesday. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
Oracle can normally take care of herself, but when one of her firecest enemies finds her alone and far from her allies and safe houses, even Batman may not be able to save her. Rising star artist Ardian Syaf - fresh off some killer work in BRIGHEST DAY - makes his BIRDS OF PREY debut in a can't-miss story by Gail Simone called "The Death of Oracle"! BIRDS OF PREY #7 is on sale this Wednesday. [gallery link="file" columns="2"]
Writer Gail Simone and artist J. Calafiore up the ante as they speed toward the conclusion of the “Reptile Brain” storyline, as the survivors of the two warring factions of the Secret Six face a danger even more horrifying than each other. And where’s Warlord? SECRET SIX #28 hits Wednesday. [gallery link="file"]
If that stack comics on my desk (which I’ve kindly reposted above) from yesterday wasn’t clue enough, let me be frank: it’s an exciting time for Batman, and for Batman fans, like me. November lit the fuse and things are not slowing down. Come February, we’ve got the launch of J.H. Williams III and co.’s BATWOMAN ongoing, featuring co-writer W. Haden Blackman.
