Jesus Saiz leaves Birds of Prey
"Gah" indeed. DC announced today that Birds of Prey artist Jesus Saiz will be leaving the title to illustrated Resurrection Man in May. This sucks. Mainly because Saiz was so damn perfect for the book, but secondly, it continues the trend of Birds of Prey not being able to nail down a consistent artist since the start of volume 2 in 2010. Yes, Saiz stuck around longer, but still... shit.
I hope DC announces who is gonna replace him today, because it'd be pretty damn lame to say that he's leaving, and not telling us who is coming in. I nominate Javier Pina... I don't know how much his work last issue was due to Saiz's layouts, but he fit the style very well.
