COMICS: Gail Simone Seemingly Forced Off BATGIRL

It seem those rumors of Simone leaving the title - unbeknownst to the writer herself at the time - turned out to be true. Simone has sent out a couple of Tweets that are sure to leave her legions of fans very disappointed. Read on for the details..



When rumors surfaced that Gail Simone might be calling it quits on DC's New 52 Batgirl title, the writer was quick to debunk them herself. But now it seems that Simone will be leaving the comic - but not willingly..



Plus..



This refers to an incident in Green Lantern #54 in which Kyle Rayner returns home to find that his girlfriend, Alex DeWitt, had been killed by the villain Major Force and stuffed in a refrigerator. Read into the response what you will! Whether this is following on from those initial rumors or just an unfortunate coincidence is unknown, but one thing is for certain, Batgirl - and indeed comic fans in general - will not be pleased. DC's New 52 relaunch had its share of duds no doubt, but Simone's work on Batgirl was a real highlight, and sold pretty well too, so this is quite perplexing. Simone will most likely make issue #16 her last as the 'Death Of The Family' arc reaches its conclusion. No word yet on who DC have chosen to replace her.
