Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

File:Gail Simone 5666.jpg

One of the few well known female comic book writers in existence. Simone has written multiple books, mostly for DC Comics (including Birds of Prey, The All-New Atom, and Wonder Woman), though she also had a famous run on Marvel's Deadpool. She is the one charged with coining the infamous term Women in Refrigerators, and has an entire website dedicated to such instances.

Gail is known for being unfailingly polite and friendly to her fellow creators (going as far as to say Amazons Attack! has good points and defending the artwork of Rob Liefeld when they did a Teen Titans arc together), and interacting a lot with the Internet fandom. She visits and debates with members of scans_daily, has founded the Wonder Woman section on the CBR boards and hangs around Comic Bloc as well. She used to be found on the You'll All Be Sorry! forum on Comic Book Resources, named for a satiric column on comics she used to write before working for mainstream comics. Now she has a board on Brian Bendis' Jinxworld Forums

She's recently finished Secret Six and finished a run on Birds of Prey, which she started writing after a run on Wonder Woman. Currently, she is writing Batgirl and co-writing The Fury of Firestorm with Ethan Van Sciver.


Gail embodies these tropes:
