    Default He Said, She Said

    Gail Simone, in early December.
    Okay, well, if you read the news on Bleeding Cool, I unfortunately have the sad duty to confirm that it?s true.?* As of Wednesday of last week, I was informed by an email from?* my new editor that I am no longer the writer of Batgirl.
    Two weeks later, she writes;Today, Bob Harras is quoted as saying, without any follow up question;
    What we had was Ray [Fawkes] coming on for two months to help out, schedule-wise. We're very happy Gail is back; she's on the book moving forward, so to me, that was a moment in time where we were just looking for Gail's next plot to come in and we're moving forward.
    Time to bring in Donald Trump (for Brits, replace with Lord Sugar)

    Bob Harras was a lying sack-of-shit Marvel editor 25 years ago, a lying sack-of-shit Marvel editor-in-chief 15 years ago, and he's a lying sack-of-shit DC editor-in-chief today. Happy 2013!

    It's wierd. It seems likely there is more than we will ever know (as in almost all comic news) and aren't likely to get the full story. Simone is on the book and I like her writing so I'm fine.

    Bob Harras: corporate slave without an iota of creativity and free will.

    And that's the reason why he's 'E-i-C' and 'Senior VP' of DC.

    now, i don't speak for everyone here. so let me be clear on that.

    i think if most of the comics hadn't gone to shit and left people with nothing to do but root around in DC's trash and hang around their back doors to figure out wtf happened, everything woulda been fine.

    the mismanagement, general disorder, and poor taste (oh Jim Lee and your costume designs!) it seems, appear to be contributing to a shit product.

    or it could be the harassing phone calls i get from DC's office ever since The New 52 started.

    PLEASE CONSIDER putting SilverSmurfer on ignore due to his factually incorrect and hysteric claim that "Uber" is a "historically revisionist nazi fantasy," and that we should boycott Avatar for it.
    Thank you for your Considerations.

    And now I'm definitely sure that it was Harras who wanted her off the book and the intervention by the other big guys made him retract his decision.

    Why not take decisions with some level of deliberation and certainty... instead of make themselves look like a bunch of fools leaking that type of information?

    No one to blame but themselves.
