Batgirl Gets A Fill-In Writer For February And March

DC have released a number of March solicitations so far, but we are missing the Batman and the Dark groups. They may be delayed because there are… let’s go with “issues”…  to sort out.

For instance I understand that Batgirl #17 and #18 won’t be written by Gail Simone. This specifically isn’t an indication that Gail is off the book, I have been explicitly told that this is a fill-in writer situation.

With Gail Simone’s workload at DC reduced lately after Firestorm, it does point to problems at the company with their creator/editorial relations.

Issue 17 has already been solicited of course, for February. This is the original solicitation;

BATGIRL #17
Written by GAIL SIMONE
Art by ED BENES
Cover by JUAN JOSE RYP
On sale FEBRUARY 13 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T
• Barbara Gordon must deal with the fallout from “DEATH OF THE FAMILY” in this issue that will forever change her status quo in The New 52!
• What does James Gordon Jr. have planned for his sister, Batgirl?

But this just one of a number of high profile similar situations I have been hearing about at DC Comics this past week.
