In 2010, she finished ''ComicBook/SecretSix'' and concluded a second run on ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey, which she started writing after her years on ''Wonder Woman''. Most recently, she enjoyed a long run on the New 52 ''ComicBook/{{Batgirl| 2011}}'' and a somewhat shorter run co-writing ''[[ComicBook/{{Firestorm}} The Fury of Firestorm]]'' with Ethan Van Sciver. When she was fired from the former, the {{Internet Backdraft}} resulted in her quickly being put back on the book. She is currently working on a new ''ComicBook/SecretSix'' series, ''ComicBook/CleanRoom'' for Vertigo and ''ComicBook/LeavingMegalopolis'' for Dark Horse.

* BigNameFan: Oddly recursive with ''WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall''.



%%* FieryRedhead


Added DiffLines:

* OneOfUs: Outside of the [[PromotedFanboy obvious]], she's tweeted about her experiences playing ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive'' on her 3DS. And talked about playing ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''.


Added DiffLines:

* PromotedFangirl: She started out as a hairdresser who just liked comics before getting a job writing Simpsons comics. Then Marvel hired her to write the last storyline for the ''Deadpool'' comic and the opening arc of ''Agent X'', before jumping ship to DC and writing many of their comics. Now she's one of their biggest name writers, and probably the main reason for the current Batgirl series to sell so well despite some critical backlash.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Twice she's had a pitch which would have pleased a large number of fans. Firstly, she wanted to bring Cassandra Cain into ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'' with a story that would transform her into a Christian, citing the fact that while an atheist herself she feels religion is misrepresented in comics. Secondly, she pitched a new book for the [[{{ComicBook/New52}} New 52]] which involved Stephanie Brown and a handful of other missing female characters and form a team and would be co-written by Bryan Q Miller. Both were unable to come to pass due to some issues involving both Cass and Steph.
** She had several scripts written that were scrapped when she was briefly fired from Batgirl, and her concept for the "Zero Year" crossover issue of Batgirl was "cool," but [=DC=] wanted someone else to write it. But the crossover isn't editorially mandated-- the writers of the various books all expressed interest!
** DC also rejected a pitch for a Shazam family comic that would be written by her, Mark Waid, and Grant Morrison.
** She wrote the episode "Double Date" for ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited''. It was originally going to be about Barbara Gordon getting injured when working on a case, so she calls Black Canary and Huntress to solve it for her. Gail also wanted to write an episode with the Queen of Fables as the villain.
* WriterRevolt: Flat-out refused to do some part of the ''ComicBook/DeathOfTheFamily'' storyline and was ''fired'' for it. DC re-hired her after the backlash, but one assumes someone else will be writing those issues...

[[MostWritersAreMale One of the few well known female comic book writers in existence]]. Simone has written multiple books, mostly for Creator/DCComics (including ''ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey'', ''[[ComicBook/TheAtom The All-New Atom]]'', and ''Franchise/WonderWoman''), though she also had a famous run on [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel's]] {{SelfDemonstrating/Deadpool}}. She is the one charged with coining the infamous phrase '[[StuffedIntoTheFridge women in refrigerators]]', and has an entire [[Website/WomenInRefrigerators website]] dedicated to such instances.
