Jim Zub Won’t Be Writing DC’s ‘Birds of Prey’
  |  @   |  

Comics writer Jim Zubkavich (Skullkickers, Pathfinder) announced today via his blog that he will not be writing DC’s Birds of Prey as planned. The writer, who usually just goes by the name Jim Zub, was scheduled to take over the book starting in March 2013. However, with DC’s comic solicitations set to hit this week, the news was going to come out when his name would be noticeably absent from solicitation text.

Zub had this to say about the situation: “DC has decided to go in a different direction with Birds of Prey and it’s been decided that I won’t be the writer on board the series after all.”

The writer then went on to thank DC for the chance and explained his disappointment at the situation. Zub will continue to stay busy, with his creator-owned book, Skullkickers, set to relaunch in February. He will also continue to work on Pathfinder from Dynamite Entertainment, a comic based on the role playing game. He also has his webcomic, Makeshift Miracle, to keep him busy.

This move comes as a surprise, especially since I was looking forward to his run. I’m sure we’ll see Zub getting more work in the near future, we’ll just have to wait for him to land on the right book. Hopefully that won’t be too far off.

According to DC‘s solicitations, Christy Marx (Sword of Sorcery) is the writer for Birds of Prey #19.
