"Here's a thing. Gail Simone is the new Batgirl writer," she wrote on Twitter.

Simone went on to stress that it wasn't a hoax. "I am driving a snow road, cell is about to cut out, but THANK YOU DC for this privilege and THANK YOU everyone who wanted this to happen!" she added.

It remains unclear why the fan-favourite writer was asked to leave the commercially and critically successful title so abruptly. The decision by DC was poorly received by her vocal fans.

Ray Fawkes has been solicited for a two-part story from March's Batgirl #18. Whether that will still go ahead has not been revealed.
