Jim Zubkavich Takes Birds Of Prey From Duane Swierczynski In March

We told you the change was coming. That Duane Swierczynski was leaving Birds Of Prey with issue 17. CBR has just run an interview arranged with DC PR in which Jim Zubkavich is announced as the new writer from issue 18, working with current artist Romano Molenaar. They interview Jim who says;

Slowly but surely I was approached about other possible DC writing projects and, when I expressed that I really wanted to write something people wouldn’t expect from me, DC Editorial Director Bobbie Chase asked me to write up my take on Birds of Prey.

Gail Simone and Chuck Dixon’s best “Birds of Prey” issues had a wonderful sense of personality and camaraderie that went hand-in-hand with top-notch action and drama. I’m not here to retread stories that have been told before and there are distinct differences between the past and this new incarnation of the team, but I‘m looking to keep that character/action balance at the core of the series because I feel that’s what makes it such a special series.

No news as to whom the Birds Of Prey will be fighting in Villains Month yet though…
