Gail Simone may have dropped some big hints on Twitter for an upcoming DC project after leaving Batgirl due to creative differences with an editor who's no longer with the company. Here's the tweet:
GUYS. The new book is so SECRET that it's totally SECRET how SECRET this SECRET is about this new book full of SECRET SECRETS. #hint— Gail Simone (@GailSimone) July 13, 2014
Hmmm... She said the word SECRET a lot times. SIX times, in fact. Clearly she wants us to pick up on something here. Well, secrets are revealed in Marvel's Original Sin crossover event. Original Sin is a biblical reference, and the Bible is considered one of the greatest stories ever written. So is Alan Moore's Watchmen, which was illustrated by Dave Gibbons. A gibbon is a type of monkey, and monkeys like bananas, so it follows that bananas are yellow, just like the sun. Who likes to take naps in the sun? Jim Lee, because Jim Lee is a lazy cat, which reminds us of Catman, so... HOLY SHIT! Gail Simone is writing a SECRET SIX book!
Hopefully, she's not just messing with the fans. We would be brokenhearted to learn this is just a joke, like this book we were really excited for:
