DC Entertainment announced plans to publish a new Supergirl comics miniseries. The story for Supergirl: Being Super will trace the origins of Supergirl (a.k.a. Kara Danvers). The first of four issues will be released on December 28.
Mariko Tamaki has signed on to write the story. Joëlle Jones has come on board to create the cover and interior artwork. Sandu Florea has agreed to work on the inking. Kelly Fitzpatrick has been brought on to work on the colors.
Here’s more from the press release: “Imagine this: You’re an alien. You have super powers. You are Supergirl. But you’re also 16, a teenager just trying to survive the day-to-day life of high school. The upside is, yes, you can fly, you can crush diamonds with your bare hands. The downside is that being super can be a super complicated and super confusing thing to be, especially when the whole being super thing is a secret.”
