C2E2 is officially underway. And while DC may not have a booth for the second year in a row, they do have creators galore for a number of scheduled panels. While we have coverage coming from the panels later, the first bit from Chicago is an exclusive interview with Gail Simone.
Just to point out before we get to the questions, these interviews were arranged with DC ahead of time and as with most approved interview blocks, creators can’t reveal a lot outside of what has already been announced or outside…

Batgirl #1 has already received a second printing and it hasn't even sold one copy yet. Tomorrow, Barbara Gordon's world changes with her donning the mantle of the Bat once again. And while it may seem that everything changes in an instant, DC has said countless times that the previous events in Bab's life have still happened. Comic Book Resources talked with Gail Simone who has been writing Barbara in various forms over the past few years, but never in a role like this.

The last panel of the convention had to be the one to sum up everything that had occurred in the previous days. The biggest news seems to be the direction of the comics come September.

The Source has revealed the Bat-Books that will be hitting stores in October. All titles are in the DCnU and as expected will continue where issue one left off. Here are the highlights of the solicitations.
It seems that the largest push is the addition of new villains in The Batman Universe. The following titles have villains mentioned; Batman-"a mysetrious killer in a owl skull mask", Batwing-Massacre, Detective Comics-Gotham Ripper, Batman and Robin-NoBody, Batgirl-Mirror, Batwoman-"A terrifying new villain stalks the innocent children of Gotham City!", and Nightwing-"mysterious assassin". So the rogues gallery is definetly growing.
Catwoman continues to play…

"There's no character closer to my heart than Barbara Gordon. Her new villains are just….ooooh," said Simone excitingly. The writer went on to reveal a new villain called 'Mirror' and some panels of the character, who appears like a…
