Week 2 of DC's upcoming Convergence titles hits stores on April 15th, and one of the books offered is SUPERGIRL: MATRIX written by Keith Giffen and featuring the art of Timothy Green II. Giffen answered a few of our questions about the book and we got a look at some interior art.
COMIC VINE: What's going on in this Convergence story?
KEITH GIFFEN: What? Tell you the story then totally remove any reason to buy the book?
Well, except for Tim's artwork, which is, pretty much, worth the price of admission alone.
CV: Do you feel like a void is being filled in fans' hearts because Ambush Bug is going to be in this comic?
KG: I have no idea how to answer this. There's a void? In people's hearts? Because of Ambush Bug?
KG: I told Dan to give me the characters no one else wanted to work on.
No... really, that's how I got them.
CV: Were there any changes to the look of these characters in the initial design for this book?
KG: Luthor. We originally drew him in bald but Dan wanted the hippy Luthor so... Y'know, he probably didn't want us messing with a bald guy.
Him being, like, bald 'n' all?
CV: What were all of you excited about when it comes to working on this book?
KG: No one said anything about being excited. I mean, not to me they didn't. Just the usual "don't f**k up".
I get that a lot.
CV: Will Supergirl be wearing her "iconic" red headband?
KG: There's an iconic Supergirl headband?
I'm going to guess the answer to that is no.
Thanks to Keith Giffen for answering our questions and make sure to check out CONVERGENCE: SUPERGIRL: MATRIX #1 on April 15th.
