gail_simone_576-266x350Remember that time when Gail Simone was fired off of Batgirl and the whole of the internet went beserk? Well, I do. We even talked about it on the podcast last week.

As it turns out, the new writer of Batgirl, well, it’ll be a familiar face that I’m sure we can all appreciate… it’s (DUN DUN DUN…) GAIL SIMONE (which really isn’t really news if you read the title of this news article)!

This afternoon, Simone tweeted this:

 

 

It’s VERY exciting and while I know myself and the other Talking Comics crew will be ecstatic over her triumphant return, I know our beloved Bob Reyer will be over the moon to hear this news. Basically, it’s a CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

Ray Fawkes will be joining Gail Simone on the series.

Thoughts?

    It just goes to show you what a little (well, a lot) of righteous indignation can do! Although we can’t be certain, it appears that DC has reconsidered in the face of the growing backlash, so as a child of the Sixties, let me just say “POWER TO THE PEOPLE!”

    Seriously, this is great news for fans of the series, as Gail Simone has proven to be THE WRITER for Batgirl, and as one of those fans since the Birds of Prey run, I can now view my purchase of the BOP Hero-clix set as a celebratory act, and not a wake!

    ps) Ms. Simone’s last issue was scheduled to be #16; her new “first” issue will be #19. rrr
