Gail Simone is back on Batgirl!

Body

4819 A couple weeks ago Gail Simone received word via e-mail from the new editor on Batgirl that she had been let go.

Well, the internet exploded with fans and fellow creators alike voicing their support for Gail.

Turns out it made a difference as Gail Simone tweeted that she is the "new" writer on Batgirl.

Here's a thing. Gail Simone is the new Batgirl writer. :)

She also thanked everyone and DC:

I am driving a snow road, cell is about to cut out, but THANK YOU DC for this privilege and THANK YOU everyone who wanted this to happen!

And if you think that maybe this was a marketing gimmick (like Dan Slott's Amazing Spider-Man tweets), think again:

Also? NOT A HOAX.

It's unknown which issue Gail Simone returns to Batgirl on as Ray Fawkes is set to right Batgirl #18 and #19.

Simone's Batgirl #15 was DC's 4th best selling book in November.
