With next year poised to be a banner year for the Birds of Prey, Brian Azzarello and Emanuela Lupacchino's eagerly anticipated take on the DC superteam has gotten a variant cover by fan-favorite artist J. Scott Campbell.
DC Nation shared Campbell's cover to the oversized DC Black Label one-shot shows Harley Quinn in action alongside Black Canary and the Huntress. The mature reader-oriented issue goes on sale this January.
Azzarello and Lupacchino's story was originally announced as an ongoing series for the main DC Universe, slated for an October debut. Plans changed this past September when the series was re-solicited as a DC Black Label title, rescheduled to debut in February to coincide with the release of Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
With the announcement last month that Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner would launch a new four-issue miniseries in February titled Harley Quinn and the Birds of Prey, solicitations for DC titles slated to go on sale January 2020 revealed that material for Azzarello and Lupacchino's story had been combined into a 96-page one-shot to be published at the end of the month.
Birds of Prey #1 is written by Brian Azzarello and illustrated by Emanuela Lupacchino and Ray McCarthy. It is scheduled to go on sale January 29 from DC.
