But we all know Gail is really talented. I just don't really know why her Batgirl and Firestorm work was so subpar. I'm inclinced to blame editorial. That's usually the reason any book sinks. Editors can't stand letting writers write and they try to dictate the material.
Here's a funny idea...no more editors. It's 2012, almost 2013. Why do we still need editors? We can click and edit a script in seconds and e-mail it. Self-editing a story isn't the huge time consumer that it once was.
Let's eliminate editors! I'm totally serious. I understand the need for a senior editor, but not all these book editors running around.
