I just found out that Gail Simone was informed in an email from her new editor that she is no longer the writer of Batgirl.
She was fired in an email.
I am so unbelievably pissed off.
For those who haven't been reading our blog for long, Batgirl is one of the first comics I started following in the New 52. It's also the first superhero comic I really identified with. You can read my first blog post about her here: Tonight, I'm Batgirl. I can't express how disappointed I am in DC's decision to remove Simone as Batgirl's writer.
Simone has been incredibly classy about the whole mess. You can read her response here: I am so fricking fortunate. There has been an outpouring of support for her on Twitter.
All I have to say is that I will be taking Batgirl off of Christian's and my pull list as soon as Simone's run is over and I will be following Simone to wherever her next project takes her.
