    The real issue here is that this was related publicly to an over-sensitive and over-protective fanbase, who (of course) took it personally, despite it not having squat to do with them.
    Yeah, I agree. The internet loves Simone and largely overreacts at anything related with her. I'm still trying to understand how is Batgirl is supposed to be a critically acclaimed comic, as I've been told on a Batgirl thread.
    No one did anything exactly wrong, but the editor could very well have made a phone call after sending the email. Which, to be honest, we have no idea if he did or not. Simone only said she was informed first by email.

    The book she is writing is going to be Sensational Comics.

    I'm guessing if it's not a whole new book she'll be taking over World's Finest.
    That would be fantastic. No matter how inconsistent her recent work was, getting rid of Paul Levitz can only be an improvement.

    Did you read her Wonder Woman run? If it was anything like that, it would be a lot of things, but sensantional wouldn't be one of them.

    Well she never technically said she was fired. Just that she was no longer the writer of Batgirl. I actually had a feeling that she was gonna be put on another DC book, but just that she had to keep it under wraps

    Her Wonder Woman was'nt bad, it was'nt great either but it was'nt bad at all. Her characterization of Diana was spot-on but her stories were not that interesting.

    Besides, I'm sure that if Sensation Comics is relaunched it will not only focus on WW but it also would showcase all the superheroines from the DC universe. Plus, we need a pure superhero WW alternative from Azzarello's great but more Vertigo oriented take.

    The only fan favourites Gail Simone can write are the ones she made into favourites. So I'll read anything she writes that has Catman.

    Is this going to be the Plastic Man with with EVS?
    I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

    Ethan Van Sciver is the new artist on Batman - The Dark Knight so it won't be an ongoing.

    You just said her stories were bland with Wonder Woman. Same happened in Batgirl (I'll call that a very personal opinion, so that I don't have to get into a discussion). Not really something that makes me interested in seeing her doing again what she has failed to do more than once.

    If it's an OGN, it's probably already done.

    She had a Wonder Woman picture on her Twitter account so it would make sense.
    DC/Marvel reader. Mostly Superman,Batman,X-Men,Avengers fan...guess I am a fan of most comics.

    If we forget something that I've never seen even mentioned anywhere else, even on Bleeding Cool? Well, yes. But please, tell me that (completely true, I'm sure) rumor.

    Any way, the issues she had written already were last-second scrapped and I've heard rumors I have no idea if it's true or not but there are rumors that she refused to fridge a character and was fired.

    Yeah, the inventor of the expression gets fired because she refused to fridge a character. I have no idea how that rumor could possibly be made up.

    Btw, I find the notion that is wrong to kill a female character simply because she's a female ridiculous. I hear no similar complaint when a male character dies. Anytime a female dies? "The writer is a misogynist", expression mostly used by people who have no idea of its meaning.

    And changes makde to issues/scrapped issues is happening to a lot of creators, not just to Simone.
