With the media blitz surrounding the return of Mother Monster after her agonizing six-month absence from the public eye, recuperating from a broken hip (Granny Gaga?), I simply had to weigh in with my two cents. Although quite a Gaga fan, I hardly consider myself one of her "Little Monsters" and see myself more as one of her peers. A bold statement? I'll explain.

I didn't realize Dynamite was rebooting Red Sonja under the helm of fan favorite writer Gail Simone until the week it came out. Simone is such a fan favorite, in fact, DC cracked under fan pressure to re-hire her after unceremoniously dumping Simone from writing duties on Batgirl.
Simone is known for her compelling stories and witty dialogue, having cut her teeth on Marvel's Deadpool and developed quite a following with DC's Birds of Prey, following creator Chuck Dixon in its pre-New 52 hullabaloo. Having worked on heavy hitters like Wonder Woman and Secret Six, Gail has earned her stripes and is well liked amongst fans and peers alike. Most associated with Barbara Gordon in her Oracle and Batgirl incarnations, it seemed fitting that Dynamite turned to Simone to breathe new life into another well known, red-headed heroine for a make-over/reboot. (Ironic, little-known fact: Gail herself is a beautician.) A fan turned pro, Gail quickly proved she was just as good with a pen as she was with a curling iron, rising quickly amongst the writers of a male-dominated field.
