OK, just let that image sink in for a minute.
Announced this morning on The Source, Jesus Saiz is the new ongoing artist of Birds of Prey, starting with issue #12 in May. The Gail Simone-written book has had approximately 350 artists (well 4 or 5, and all pretty great) in its run since last year’s relaunch, but it’ll be nice to see an impressive regular artist joining the team. Plus, he draws everyone as individual people! Look! They all have different faces! With Brave and the Bold Saiz drew a lot of the DC Universe, and Simone is excited to have him on board, according to DC’s blog:
“Jesus is at the top of a very short list of dream artists on our, “Oh, man, wouldn’t HE be fantastic?” list. His previous work has been silky and sexy and powerful all at the same time. He’s fantastic with design, storytelling, body language…an artist this good frees up the writer to make the stories even bigger and more complex.”
Now, of course, Barbara Gordon is front-and-center on that cover, but is also at the heart of the current BoP storyline, “Death of Oracle.” What does that mean for the title of the story? Your guess is as good as mine, so why not share it below?
