It’s a story we’ve been exploring this past week, Gail Simone off Batgirl, the DC New 52 title most associated with one creator more than any other. Today, Gail confirmed the news. The response from her peers was instant.
@gailsimone forced off Batgirl. This is so fucked up I have no proper words…

Above all, @gailsimone has an audience of her own that’ll be out of that door with her.
