"Birds" Of A Feather Flock Together

DC Comics' "Birds of Prey" #12, available May 11, 2011, is written by Gail Simone, with illustrations and a cover by Jesus Saiz :

"...They've had the growing pains, the split-ups and the reunions. Now it's time to see the 'Birds of Prey' do the dirty jobs no one else can. When a mysterious yet familiar villain threatens to organize all East Coast criminal activity, from loan sharking to illegal arms trading, 'Oracle' is forced to test the limits of the 'Batman Incorporated' strategy, using her own operatives as pawns in a battle for the soul of 'Gotham City'..."

The "Birds of Prey" TV series, produced in 2002, was developed by Laeta Kalogridis for The WB, based on the "Birds of Prey" DC Comics series. Despite the weekly ratings of 7.6 million viewers and the network's largest audience in the 18–34 demographic at the time, the series was cancelled, with only 13 episodes in the can.
