'Batgirl and the Birds of Prey' Ending, Writers Joining 'Green Arrow'
'Batgirl and the Birds of Prey' from DC Comics will be coming to an end in May with it's latest issue, but writers Julie and Shawna Benson will continue on with the company as they take over 'Green Arrow' beginning with issue #43 in August.
The announcement was made at the DC Universe panel at Wondercon yesterday.
'As we mourn the loss of our beloved Birds, hope in the form of an arrow has struck us through the heart with the opportunity to take on Oliver Queen. Ollie's made a few appearances alongside the Birds since we began writing at DC with Rebirth, and we can't wait to continue making our mark on the 77-year-old marksman this summer. And we won't be leaving our ladies behind. Black Canary, aka Ollie's 'Pretty Bird' will continue to star in Green Arrow'. The two writers told the press.
'We're both humbled and flabbergasted to follow in the footsteps of comic greats like Mort Weisinger, Denny O'Neil, Mike Grell, Kevin Smith, Brad Meltzer, Jeff Lemire, Ann Nocenti, and of course, Ben Percy. We're honoured to be included in their ranks and proud of DC for seeing our strength and for moving us over to Green Arrow.'
