Gail Simone says - “Can’t say anything yet, but I will say that I’ve been offered to write some dream, dream books I never even thought I might be able to work on.”
COOL. COOL. COOL. That I cannot wait for. That definitely makes up for losing her on Batgirl. Wherever you’re going, Gail, I’ll follow along.
