Gail Simone has announced that she will be penning the new Batgirl series starring Barbara Gordon. I was wary about somebody other than Gail writing Birds of Prey (less wary now that I see that it's going to be Swieczynski sp?). but this...this totally balances that out. Gail Simone has such an obvious love for this character and I couldn't think of anybody I'd like to see write Babs as Batgirl more.

@Gambler: They might not exist. But I think having all three as Batgirl would be pretty cool.

@Gambler: blackbat/spoiler monthly maybe?

@MrUnknown: @laussica: For Cass I personally think it would be the perfect opportunity to have re-emerge as a villain standing by her mother and father's side. Creating the greatest trio of assassins in the DCU :D My bad, fanboy moment.

@Gambler: that would also be good, if so i really want to see the moment which makes her change sides

maybe she is betrayed and loses hope in the batfamily?
