Birds of Prey, Robin and Nightwing are all canceled. Don't you know you're not supposed to mess with a redhead?
DC confirmed the news to Newsarama. Birds of Prey #127, Robin #183 and Nightwing #153 will be their final issues in stores this February. It's doubtful this decision was based on sales and more likely it has something to do with Batman. Fishy (pun intended) considering Catwoman got the ax not too long ago also. Maybe we're all really underestimating the effect Batman R.I.P. will have on him and the Bat-family. Either way it seems hard to imagine a reboot of all three series.
Cancellation doesn't fly with Zinda.
Robin and Nightwing writers Fabian Nicieza and Peter Tomasi told Comic Book Resources they were aware of these plans far in advance. Tomasi also revealed he'll be writing a Batman and the Outsiders Special in January and continuing with Outsiders after his last issue of Nightwing.
I'm trying not to be too mad about Birds of Prey as it really does seem something new will come for each of the books after all is said and done but, yeah, I'm pissed. DC just better realize if they don't bring BoP back, they'll have THIS redhead in a wheelchair to deal with.
