If you were online at all Monday, you may be aware that DC Comics released writer and creator Gail Simone from the “Batgirl” title.
My reaction: shock, fear, shock, disbelief, utter disappointment [for DC Comics], and a glimmer of excitement [Marvel, you are calling her, right?].
Gail Simone, if you are unaware of who she is, is one of the most popular writers at DCU. During her career she has written “Deadpool,” “Birds of Prey,” “Wonderwoman,” “The Secret Six,” and of course, “Batgirl.” She is among the loudest supporters of DCU and particularly of the New52. Gail has been out there waving the banner and beating the drum to encourage her loyal fans to continue after DC (for a lack of a better word) destroyed their continuity. She has had one of the most successful books of their run and THE most successful female-led book. To top it all off, the most recent issues have been met with praise from fans and critics alike.

Oh, hey! It’s me again. I know, I know two posts from Karen while she’s on vacation?! What the heck? Well, I’m doing Ramses a solid and covering for him while he works out some creative blocks. His vacationitis is worse than mine.
