Gail Simone has been accused of many things: being a cabal of comic writers bent on world domination; stalking Bigfoot; being a loudmouthed, opinionated feminist; shooting a man in Reno just to watch him die; being Mark Waid in drag; willfully pushing the gay agenda; being a mediocre hairdresser; writing some of the creepiest comic scenes ever committed to paper.
The truth of many of those things is still a matter of serious debate in certain internet circles. However, it it universally accepted that Gail Simone writes comics, adopts greyhounds, and resides in the Pacific Northwest.
