If you've been keeping up with the reboots, relaunches and Rebirths of the DC Universe that we've had over the past few years, then you probably already know that the women who make up the Birds of Prey are very, very different from the way they were a decade ago. Barbara Gordon is the hip young Batgirl who protects Burnside from the threat of evil social media apps, Black Canary's a rock star, and Helena Bertinelli just lost her job as the Matron of a worldwide spy organization based out of a boarding school.

With all that said, you could be forgiven for being a little bit lost, but fret no longer, dear reader. When Batgirl and the Birds of Prey: Rebirth hits shelves next week, it'll catch you up on the current status of the team --- starting with Barbara Gordon. Check out a preview below!

 

 

And here's the official solicitation:
