Gail Simone Left Batgirl Over Creative Differences With The Editor… Who Then Left DC Comics

BG_Cv352Gail Simone is appearing at the London Film And Comic Con this weekend (taking of which, show organisers? Please get in touch, I have questions…)

Which means she’s on the British timezone to start talking about what happened with Batgirl.

Just for reference, Batgirl #31-#33 were edited by Katie Kubert, assistant edited by Mark Humphries with Mark Doyle as group editor. Katie Kubert recently resigned and moved to Marvel Comics.

Simone tweets,
