DC’s definitely hoping people will because during the release of December’s solicits, they showed off some trade paperbacks of characters highlighted in the movie.
First, they’re doing “Batman Arkham” trades highlighting the villains Victor Zsasz and Black Mask, each collecting key/memorable issues featuring the characters. The Zsasz one even has a story that was previously unpublished, so that’s kinda cool.
But for the Birds themselves, there are four different trades coming out:
Birds of Prey: Black Canary – Collecting issues #1-12 (and the sneak peek during Convergence) of the series written by Branden Fletcher and drawn by Annie Wu.
Birds of Prey: Harley Quinn – Collecting the first seven issues of Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner’s Harley Quinn series, as well as Harley Quinn: Future’s End #1 and a story from Secret Origins #4.
Birds of Prey; The Huntress – Collecting the (awesome) Batman/Huntress: Cry for Blood mini-series by Greg Rucka and Rick Burchett.
Birds of Prey: Murder and Mystery – Collecting the first twelve issues of Gail Simone’s run of Birds of Prey.
