It seems Gail Simone will not be writing Batgirl anymore and that sucks ! This is what she said on Twitter :

"This is my Yes-the-news-is-true-and-it-sucks super sad dance. Oddly, it's square dancing. On Wednesday of last week, new Batgirl editor Brian Cunningham informed my by email that I was no longer the writer of Batgirl. It is baffling and sad, I will probably have a statement later today or maybe tomorrow. But I want to give a huge, huge thanks to the other creators in the bat-offices, and editors Bobbie Chase and Brian Smith, champions all. And the biggest thank you of all to you guys for supporting this book so hugely and making it a commercial and critical success. I honestly don't have the words right now to thank you all. I'm pretty choked up an it's all gratitude, not bitterness"

Just when Batgirl was getting good again !

This absolutely sucks. Gail's the perfect writer for Babs.

Firing one of your best writers by e-mail is subsequently one of the dumbest and most rotten things you can do.

Are they giving her another book or is she not working for DC anymore?

Well. It didn't take long at all for their facebook page (and twitter hastag) to explode.

That really sucks :/ And they went about it such a cowardly way. I've really been enjoying Simone's run.
