Gail Simone to write Batgirl... No, really.
A lot of weird things have happened at DC this year, but man are they finishing strong with this bizarre Batgirl situation. First there was the rumor "Gail Simone is leaving Batgirl," then there was the "I have not left Batgirl" quote, then OH WAIT, no, she was fired from the book... and that seemed to be that... UNTIL NOW.
Now, well... Gail is writing the book once again! No, for real... she just announced it on her Twitter.
Like I said, this is just fucking weird.
I'll get this out of the way, good news, I thought Batgirl was on a pretty good upswing of late, so if Simone continues to write it, I have no problem with it... But moving past this, what the hell is going on?! This probably says a lot about editorial at DC, what exactly, I don't know, but I'm sure it's something. I'm going to guess that someone above Brian Cunningham (Batgirl editor... for now) with the last name Johns, Lee, Harras or *GASP* Didio, sent an email along the lines of "What the hell do you think you're doing?!" and that was that.
Now what does this mean for the two issues Ray Fawkes was going to write? I'm not sure. I have to imagine Gail had scripts done, which could easily just be used, but who knows, we'll have to see.
UPDATE: Just read on Simone's tumblr that Ray Fawkes will still be doing issues #17 and #18, she returns with #19.
