So, You’ve Found Out Gail Simone is Off ‘Batgirl,’ Now What?

If you've been online at all today, odds are you heard the sad news: as of last week, Gail Simone was notified, via e-mail, that she is no longer the writer for DC's Batgirl title.  Bleeding Cool put the news out there and Gail herself confirmed it via twitter:
