Looks like DC is catching on, slowly. After mucho criticism for not having any Supergirl products out for the TV show debuts, they’re are putting out not only a monthly comic, but just announced a ‘Supergirl: Being Super’ mini series written by the award winning author of This One Summer.
Supergirl: Being Super will be a four-issue series written by Mariko Tamaki, whose coming-of-age drama This One Summer, illustrated by her cousin Jillian Tamaki, won both Ignatz and Eisner Awards for best graphic novel, as well as receiving a Printz Honor and Randolph Caldecott Medal in 2015. Art on the series will come from Eisner Award-nominee Joelle Jones, co-creator of the fan-favorite Lady Killer and Helheim series. Set outside of regular continuity, the series will offer an updated take on Kara Zor-El’s earliest days on Earth.
Mariko Tamaki is an amazing YA author and this looks promising in the extreme. The series begins on December 28th.
