The New Jersey Comic Expo announced today that Gail Simone will be their guest of honor when the show takes place November 18th and 19th at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center. The annual event is a celebration of comic books and pop culture that showcases the exceptional works of talented writers, artists, illustrators, and creators of all types of pop culture.
Simone is best known for her work on DC’s Birds of Prey as well as Secret Six, Welcome to Tranquility, The All-New Atom, Deadpool, Wonder Woman and Batgirl. It was on Batgirl that her true popularity was seen when after a year on the book, she was let go by then incoming editor Brian Cunningham, only to be rehired shortly after due to the backlash DC received from fans for the move.
Simone also did an extensive run on Dynamite’s Red Sonja and put together their Swords of Sorrow summer event a few years back. She is now working on a new series at Image called Crosswind.
