She has been revealed as a last-minute (but also great!) addition to the SYFY Fangrrls panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Simone wrote on her own Twitter that her ability to attend SDCC happened very last minute and to watch her Twitter feed for more announcements.
Finally, @GailSimone has been changing the game for nearly 20 years, through characters like Batgirl, Wonder Woman and Domino, and fighting the good fight against "women in refrigerators." #SDCC pic.twitter.com/nbBKXQtctX

Since a million people have asked, I was not going to make it to @Comic_Con this year. However, something VERY cool has happened and I will indeed be attending. It's super-short notice so my appearances won't be in the big guide, I don't think…
