    Default Gail Simone To Break The Internet Tomorrow. Again.

    Recently, Gail Simone announced she'd been fired off Batgirl by DC Comics. With her exclusive contract at the company coming to an end, some thought that would be that. Especially since so many other publishers had started calling offering her work.

    It's not.

    I hear something is coming. From Gail, from DC. And that tomorrow will be DC's last chance to announce it before they break up for Christmas.

    I advise you to keep a mouth full of champagne at all times tomorrow. Just so that you can spit it out over everyone when the news breaks.

    My money is on a Cassandra Cain book, just so 2012 can twist the knife one last time.

    I dont think her re-upping with National Periodicals will "break the internet". It'll just make people wonder why she was fired from batgirl.

    Everyone's been pretty transparent about that though. She and the new editor on the book were constantly butting heads, and DC made the decision to drop the writer rather than shuffle in a third editor into a book before the end of it's second year.

    Maybe she is getting an executive position? Just a thought, given the very hyped headline.

    Oh, I see now!!!

    All the drama and mishigas and kvetching and general bitching about her "firing via email" was a ploy to drum up interest in HER so that "THE ANNOUNCEMENT" will have more wronged-woman-writer cache than it may have otherwise.
