CBS’ Supergirl is off to a rocking start. One of the few breakout hits on network television’s fall lineup, the show has made its mark as an all-ages series led by strong, independent, and non-reductive female characters. Building off the framework the show’s success has provided, today DC announced a digital-first comic, Adventures of Supergirl, set in the same timeline as the CBS show.
The series will be written by Sterling Gates and drawn by a rotating list of artists including Bengal, Jonboy Meyers, Emanuela Lupacchino, and Emma Vieceli. As per IGN, Bengal will be drawing and coloring the first three issues.
The series is currently slated to run for thirteen issues and will be release bi-weekly on Mondays. This deviation from the standard New Comic Wednesday release, allows DC to capitalize on the audience of the Supergirl TV show, which airs on the same night.
Unlike most DC digital-only series thus far, Adventures of Supergirl will not be physically printed in single issue format. Instead, a trade that collects the full run will be released upon the series’ conclusion.
