So you may have noticed that over the months, I post less and less links to interviews about all the Bat books. Mostly because either I just don't think anything interesting is said, or it's due to the fact that I've stopped reading them because some give a little too much away (*cough*Batman*cough*). But, that being said, this interview with soon-to-be Birds of Prey writer, Jim Zub really stood out to me.
I don't know how much I've really talked about it, but I loooooved Gail Simone's first run on Birds. Have every trade, and couldn't put them down when I first got them. A big part of Gail's run on the title was just the Birds being really good friends, and hanging out, something I the current title lacks in a way... So then Jim Zub says this:
"For me, Birds of Prey is about gathering together a tight-knit team based on trust. Two to five people who have each other’s backs against the rest of the world. Friendship, conviction and sacrifice aren’t the traits of a “female” story. They’re universal."Sign me the hell up! Looking forward to the 18th issue, and hopefully you are too. These characters are pretty awesome, and deserve more of a look than they're getting at the moment.
