kelseighn asked: Following up on an earlier commenter noting that mice don't really care for cheese (but Mouse does), I have it on good authority that mice actually do like gumdrops. So my question is, does Mouse like gumdrops?
If they are flavored like cheese.
Anonymous asked: what is your stance on resolving all conflict via dance or rap battles?
I’m for it. Also, I like candles that smell like cookies.
Anonymous asked: Oh my Jesus. I sent in the remark about WW/Woddy and kjkdjsd I'M SO SORRY. In no way, shape or form was I trying to accuse you of supporting him or being insensitive or start a shit storm. It was more so commentary on the art. OMG. And now I remain anonnie out of embarrassment. I AM SO SORRY. D:
No worries at all, don’t even give it a second thought, it was just a misunderstanding!
Anonymous asked: Do you think that Mouse's little friends will ever have the heart to tell him that mouses and rats really don't care much for cheese above nearly any other kind of food, due to how strong it smells, and mostly prefer grains above all else? They're really very polite little creatures to spare his feelings like that. :<
Mouse likes cheese and I will hear no more on this topic!
Anonymous asked: Hi Gail, I value you insight in comics, because we often share the same views. Quick pick of your wondrous brain: What is your favorite Lois and Clark/Superman story? (Either written by yourself or someone else. Name as many as you like) thank you for answering, if you do answer, if you don't, still thank you :)
I really loved the story Phil Jimenez did with Lois in Wonder Woman. I would have to think on Superman…hmmm…
kittenjammer asked: Hey Ms. Simone, as some in the industry, what do you think about digital distribution vs. floppies? Do you get any info on how your sales compare digitally?
Not exactly, we get a breakdown when we get our digital royalty statement but it isn’t as clear as print by any stretch. So I really have no idea, but I am told my stuff does very well digitally, especially Batgirl, Secret Six, Red Sonja, Bop and Wonder Woman.
Anonymous asked: My LCS didn't get new comics yet because of the weather. How do you suggest countering MOVEMENT withdrawal?
Fan art or fanfic!
Anonymous asked: I just found out about the Batgirl #30 thing. Does this mean what you wrote for #30 will now be #31, and #31 will be #32 and so on?
Yes, it was a weird editorial choice I strongly disagree with, but everything just got pushed back one issue, so Ragdoll is now in 31, et cetera.
I hate this stuff, BUT it will be worth it because the next Batgirl arc? Seriously?
It’s going to blow your minds.
I am not kidding, and this isn’t fake hype. If we get to do everything we have asked for…people are going to explode.
o-myarceus asked: I was rewatching one of my favorite "Justice League: Unlimited" episodes, "Double Date" and then I realized that you were the one who wrote it and I love it even more. >w<
Two of my heroes chose me for that job.
Dwayne McDuffie was story editor for the series, and he had this basic plot, and he thought I would be perfect for it even though I had no screen experience. He was going in to pitch me to Bruce Timm and was all prepared to explain who I was and why I would be good for the episode, and he goes to talk to Bruce.
Before Dwayne can even speak, Bruce says, we gotta get Gail Simone for this episode.
That made me happy…I was such a fan of those guys and the show, and every great comic writer I knew was pitching for it and getting rejected and THEY actually approached ME. That was a very surreal experience.
Love the voice actors on that episode so much.
Anonymous asked: I feel sad for Mouse. Will he ever find someone to be his sweet cheese wedge who wants to be?
That is the eternal cheesy question!
dreamdropheart asked: Literally just now I was linking to one of my favorite things ever and noticed your name in the opening credits. Pre-Teen Raider was absolutely the shit and I always hated that there wasn't more of it, as I would have happily watched it every week. Or a movie of it. Was it always intended as a one off, or was there a possibility of more should it have gained more traction in the zeitgeist?
PRE-TEEN RAIDER was part of an official series of TOMB RAIDER short animated films, mostly written by well-known comics pros like Warren Ellis and myself. Mine was designed as fun, I pitched several ideas, and a twelve-year old Lara is the one they went with.
I remember the other was a comics convention being hijacked, and the only people who were around to rescue hostages were a bunch of Lara Croft cosplayers, ie, a heavyset one, an eight year old girl Lara, a genderbend Lara, a pair of twins in matching Lara outfits, that sort of thing. They have to save the hostages and outwit the kidnappers, and the REAL Lara shows up at the end and loses the actual cosplay contest.
I was always sad we didn’t get to do that one!
justplainsomething asked: Speaking of redheads, I still have a dream of Starfire and Batgirl doing a crossover and becoming friends and having a shopping montage. *ALL THE REDHEADS*
Hmm. What an interesting thought.
