The thing that I didn't like about Simone's (New 52) Barbara is that she lost the maturity and intelligence that she had gained over the years as Oracle. This new direction sounds like it will move Barbara EVEN FURTHER in that direction, unfortunately. I may skim through the first issue just to see what it's all about. But honestly, this is not the direction that I think befits Barbara. If this were a Stephanie Brown book, sure. But not Babs.
On the bright side, Simone is off Batgirl. I love Gail. She's a great writer. But Batgirl really did not seem to be her best work, in my opinion. Looking forward to hearing what book she'll be placed on next. Hopefully a team book. She does her best work with teams, it seems. Maybe we can finally have a Simone Birds of Prey again.
