Ask me anything, anything except that

Just a few things about Batgirl.

My inbox is flooded with messages, both kind ones and upset ones, and sadly, I am in London on two deadlines and preparing for a convention starting today, and won’t be able to address it all. Also, talking about leaving Batgirl makes me sad because¬†I love the character so much, so for right now, I am just kind of skimming as much as possible.

Just a few things in response.

First, thank you for the kind words, they mean a great deal. I am very proud of the work we did, and very grateful for the enthusiasm and support we have been shown. I can’t really articulate it.

I was not fired, I quit, over creative differences. However, the book has a new editor and he is much more open to creative suggestions and I think the book will benefit HUGELY from his presence.

Also, I don’t know anything about the new book. BUT I saw some pages and I thought they looked great. It looks like a fun, lovely book, and the creative team seems very committed and enthused. I think it’s going to be great and I wish them immense success. I feel like they are a great team for this title.

After the readership, the best thing about the book has been the spectacular art. I can’t say enough about the art teams, especially the current team of Fernando Pasarin,¬†Alex Garner, Jonathan Glapion and Blond. Every page of theirs was a joy for me.

I am happy Barbara is getting a committed editor and a big push to go with the new team. This is all good news for Batgirl.

And finally, I am happy that I get to do some really fun things in my last story.

Thank you for reading!

    This has helped me work through some of my complete devastation. Not all of it. But some.
