This was a book I worked on for a year with alterations. I wanted to do a girl team book featuring Black Alice, Misfit, a young Bumblebee, and led by Stephanie Brown. They would all be going to the same high school. The plan was to have [Bryan Q. Miller] co-write it with me.
It went through lots of permutations and changes but eventually, they passed on it, which was understandable but a little bit (okay, a lot) heartbreaking. I don’t want to say more about it, but that’s a big reason why I was hopeful about some of those characters, because it seemed a pretty exciting premise.
But it doesn’t mean those characters won’t be back at some point, hopefully they will.

I would have bought this book in a heartbeat. Seriously. An all-girls team featuring four amazing characters who’ve been overlooked in the reboot, led by Steph and written by Gail Simone and BQM? It would have been amazing. And I am a little bit heartbroken, too, knowing it’s not going to happen.
