Great Scott!

There's a story on Nicola Scott in today's SMH!

and it's written by Mark Juddery who is a comics fan - though I wish he (or editorial) didn't need to refer to Gail Simone as a former hairdresser. Unless male writers get the same treatment. Somehow, I doubt it.

That hairdresser comment is really incongruous, isn't it?

"Gail Simone, who studied French at high school..."
"Gail Simone, who cooks a pretty good chilli..."
"Gail Simone, who didn't really like the recent Star Trek movie..."

When they could have said "Gail Simone, one of the funniest writers in mainstream comic..."

I really have to pick up Birds of Prey in trade, I've liked the excerpts I've read so far.

(I'm one of those ex-comic-book-junkies who only buys trades now.)

Trades is the way to go.

And the hairdresser thing is just weird.

Former hairdresser??!!? I definitely have to read more Gail Simone now.

All my favourite writers used to be hairdressers.

I always wondered about the recurring curling wand motif
