If you enjoy seeing Harley Quinn, Black Canary, and Huntress team up, you’re going to love the new series DC Comics is announcing. Starting in October, a new only going monthly comic starring the Birds of Prey will kick-off. Written by Brian Azzarello, the art team includes Emanuela Lupacchino, Ray McCarthy, and Trish Mulvihill.
“I’m thrilled to work on Birds of Prey with Brian Azzarello. The Birds are a super-team I’ve never worked on before but that I‘ve always loved. Harley is shining with her craziness, which is something I love to draw.”
“It’s cool to have a story to tell about these characters I’ve never worked on before, with Ema, a terrific artist I’ve never worked with before. Having Harley involved screws with the new BOP dynamic—hell, with every dynamic. She’s chaos, but she might be the most together member of the team. Canary, Huntress, and Montoya have a lot of damaged baggage. Ema and I are gonna unpack it.”
The new series will launch on October 30th of this year. Dinah Lance’s personal life is going through turmoil and her band is in a state of crisis. Dinah’s dealing with an old flame returning, before that spark flickers out. It’s these events that will set her on the path to encountering her new opponent, Las Esposas de la Muerte. Huntress joins in and Harley Quinn is freshly free from Gotham City and the Suicide Squad, with a new lease on life.
“The story is GREAT. We’re introducing interesting, energetic new characters and have developed designs for their costumes that will instantly give fans an idea about their nature. It’ll be a fantastic run. This will be a lovely opportunity to bring these women to life and let the reader feel their emotions. I’ll give them their energy and power.”
“Tonally, this series will surprise many readers. Ema and I are pushing the envelope, both character-wise and plot-wise, with equal parts estrogen and adrenaline. Our BOP will be the must-read title every month. Ambitious? Sure. That’s why it’s worth doing.”
