    Default Comic Creators Respond To Gail Simone's Firing-By-E-Mail Off Batgirl

    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...

    .@gailsimone I'm very sorry to hear that. ? Paul_Cornell (@Paul_Cornell) December 9, 2012
    @gailsimone Sorry to hear the news. I wish you well. You will always be THE writer of Batgirl. #weallloveyourwork

    @gailsimone WTH? SO sorry to hear that, Gail, I know how much you loved working on the character. ? FrancescoFrancavilla (@f_francavilla) December 9, 2012
    Above all, @gailsimone has an audience of her own that'll be out of that door with her.

    @gailsimone Stay classy, comics. Stay classy. ? Antony Johnston (@antonyjohnston) December 9, 2012
    @gailsimoneThat sucks, I'm sorry. I'm a big fan of yours. I'm always on board for anything you write. ? Ryan Kelly (@funrama) December 9, 2012
    @gailsimone I eagerly anticipate your creator owned series from @imagecomics -- you know, when that happens. Because DC is stupid. ? Marc Lombardi (@marclombardi) December 9, 2012
    @gailsimone Very sorry, ma'am. That's confounding and depressing. ? Mike Norton (@themikenorton) December 9, 2012
    @gailsimone always in your corner Gail, as a fan and a friend. will call again later.

    @gailsimone Good luck with what's next. Await your statement with interest.

    @gailsimone did you not put enough women in refrigerators or something?

    ? Mike Nelson (@themikecnelson) December 9, 2012
    @themikecnelson Funny you should say that.

    Exactly. They either found someone BIG to write the book or wanted her to do something she didn't want to agree to. Seeing this made me think its the latter.

    They probably wanted her to have James Jr. kill Bab's roommate. She was stretching that plot out.

    Do not worry. Everything is fine at DC. I eagerly await the news Howard Mackie is the new Batgirl writer, then everything will be perfect.

    Please Paul Levitz, come back, EVERYTHING is forgiven. Seriously, everything.

    I love to see all these creators show their support to one of their own verbally but I'd really like to see them actually attempt (if at all possible) some sort of physical reaction.

    Something akin to actually giving a reaction that DC can take notice of rather than just tweeting your disapproval and then returning to work as if nothing has happened.

    That actually makes me think she is being forced onto New Guardians. Kyle IS the original character who had a woman in a refrigerator.

    Or perhaps Ron Marz is taking over the title.

    that is a very baseless guest
    besides I wouldnt had been surprised if that was actually Gail's plan from the beginning

    Either way, thats not enough to fire her
