A Necessary Point
With the majority of the team being female, I am satisfied with Wildstorm choosing the industry's top female writer to helm the book. It seems only logical. I look forward to her insights unavailable to the title's previous scribes.
Although this comment doesn't anger me so much as Kelly's earlier Simone-related commentary ("GS ... proves herself as the leading female in the industry ..."), it irked me nonetheless.
Man, it's very simple: good writers are good writers. They can write anything and anyone.
Gail Simone is to DC as Ed Brubaker is to Marvel.
She should eventually be writing the company's elite titles, whether they've got any women in them or not.
