After Simone spent almost a week of debunking rumors that she was walking away from her writing duties on Batgirl, she seems to have been dealt a surprise hand by DC Comics. Here are Ms. Simone’s tweets:
This obviously refers to Green Lantern # 54 in which a rookie GL, Kyle Rayner. comes home to find his girlfriend, Alex murdered and stuffed in their refrigerator by Major Force.
It appears that Batgirl # 16 will be the last issue penned by Gail Simone. No word on who will replace Simone as writer on Batgirl but one thing is for sure – this is a big disappointment to her fans, myself included.
