  1. Why the Batgirl #37 Controversy is the Conversation We Need Right Now

    When I started writing this piece, I was angry. I wanted to take DC Comics' entire Batgirl creative team to task for what they had done, and I wanted to ask one question: why?

  3. Visual Representation: Trans Characters In Comics

    When there was a changing of the creative team in Batgirl earlier this year, many readers asked, “What will happen to Alysia?” Batgirl's roommate, created by Gail Simone, made headlines across the internet when she confided to her Bat-roomie that she was trans. Discussions sparked around how the depiction of Alysia would represent trans people: Would Alysia become a trope and fall victim to the ways that trans women have been previously characterized in media?

  4. Gail Simone Will Make Sure Nightwing’s Butt Gets Featured In Her Convergence Miniseries, For Feminism

    Good. Good choice. Yes.

    The Secret Six and Red Sonja writer also spoke with Comics Alliance about the importance of diversity in comics, her own writing process, and her wonderful experiences working with artists and comic publishers. But c'mon. Like we're not going to lead with butts.

  5. Wonder Woman’s New 52 Origin Should Not Be Used in Film (or At All)

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice producer Charles Roven says they'll be using Wonder Woman's DC Comics' "New 52" reboot origin rather than the story imagined by her original writer and creator William Moulton Marston. I think using the New 52 origin in general, much less in these films, is a mistake which diminishes the character and goes against why she was created in the first place.

  7. The Women of DC Comics Discuss Their Passion for Creating

    I wasn't able to attend DC Comics' "Women of DC" Panel at New York Comic Con but I'm so glad they brought together Babs Tarr, Gail Simone, Marguerite Bennett, Caitlin Kittredge, Meredith Finch, Amanda Conner, Becky Cloonan, and Amanda Salmons for a talk. Here's a few more words they added after the fact.

  8. Pull It Together: New Creative Team on Wonder Woman and Anderson Cooper on Black Widow

    We've got issues. Lots of issues.

    Welcome to Pull It Together, where the goal is to narrow the massive field of comic book titles to the ones you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours!

  9. DC Reveals Convergence Titles Including Gail Simone on Oracle, Greg Rucka on Renee Montoya, and Lots More

    And Ryan Choi, and Wally West, and Lois and Clark are married, and...

    I'm as cynical as any long-time comics fan can be, DC Comics. So when you announce the return of one of my favorite comics writers, to one of my very favorite comics characters, I have only two things to say to you.

    I am only human. And good job.

  10. Batgirl, a Parable for Online Culture

    It’s been a rough few years for Barbara Gordon since her New 52 reboot in 2011, spearheaded by Gail Simone. Her re-imagined outfit, complete with detachable cape, gives Babs a punky edge, making use of YouTube know-how. Virtually everything’s made easier by the internet, and it’s become second nature to publish our lives online. On one hand, this gives us personal and creative freedoms on incredible levels. But on the other, the trolls come out to play.
