Today, July 29th, is comic book writer extraordinaire Gail Simone’s birthday! I know I’ve done a post about her already but I’d like to do another one to pay tribute to my favorite comic book writer.
Everyone knows Gail is best known for Birds of Prey where she really nailed each and every character in the book.
She knew how to write friendships at their best…
and when it’s on the rocks…
And of course, she’s equally as amazing in Secret Six, Wonder Woman (and when she combined Secret Six and Wonder Woman in the same story) and everything other thing she has touched.
Top 10 things we wouldn’t have without Gail Simone:
1. Epic match-ups
2. Ragdoll dreams
3. A Wonder Woman who was relatable, vulnerable, kind, can fall in love yet still kick ass
4. The return of Etta Candy and the beginning of a beautiful friendship
5. Bane and Scandal
6. Huntress and Catman
7. Batman: The Brave and the Bold - The Mask of Matches Malone! (and that song)
8. Justice League Unlimited - Double Date (featuring Black Canary, Green Arrow, Huntress and The Question)
9. New characters like Misfit and Black Alice that quickly became fan favorites and continued to appear after her run on BOP
10. Obviously I can’t leave out…
I know there are so many more wonderful things Gail wrote, created or was involved in but those are my favorites and I just want to wish her a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Thanks for everything!
My favorite comics writer! Love Gail!
I forgot to reblog this so all the lovely art could be displayed…sorry! Looking at all these lovely characters reminds me, WORKING IN COMICS IS AWESOME. :)
