It's pretty interesting, and although it doesn't really change my mind about the "curing Oracle" issue I can at least see where they're coming from. Also Gail says that Steph and Cass should have a place in the new DCU, and if they're not being used they'll appear in Babs' new series,
http://www.newsarama.com/comics/gail-simone-dicusses-batgirl-and-oracle-110609.html

Gail also kind of implied that Babs won't be deaged when she puts on the costume, which takes care of THAT continuity snarl anyways. Though that now means that either Steph is going to step down as Batgirl at what is argueably the height of her career so far, OR... and this is the more unlikely reason... Babs fires her and takes her place.

The final issue of Steph's series looked like it was a final issue even before they announced the new line-up, so we should have seen it coming, I guess.

For legality from Nightwing Annual 2,

Same here. And I do think she's right, actually - for all we know it might produce some great stories.

Whether I'll buy it is a different matter altogether.

So it's a BND situation?

Stories of potential quality that are, for many, marred forevah by the horrible decision that "made them possible".

In fairness there actually may be worthwhile stories about babs that can only be told with her healed, making it quite different from ombndmitime, where the passably okay stories are all ones that could all have just as easily been done with married pete and mj and everything that does rely on the retcon has been shitburgers.

They could've told them in flashback though. Or Elseworlds!

That is, after all, what Scans Daily is for.

Yeah, I agree with this. I think this is wrong, but i'm sure Gail's stories will be good at a minimum; i'm certainly a fan. If I didn't care at all about this issue, i'd likely be interested in picking it up solely knowing she was writing.

I think that's what makes not buying it all the more annoying. It's easy to avoid something out of principle if you don't like it anyway. But in this case it's a comic off my list that likely would be on it otherwise.
