With CBS' Supergirl television series in full swing, many comic book fans have been wondering why Supergirl doesn't have a comic book series. That's all changed now as IGN revealed that she is getting a DC Digital First series called ADVENTURES OF SUPERGIRL. Sterling Gates will be writing the book with a rotating group of artists on the series including Bengal, Jonboy Meyers, Emanuela Lupacchino, and Emma Vieceli. Bengal will take on the first three chapters.
This will be a 13-chapter, bi-weekly series, which will come out the same day as the Supergirl television series: Monday. The comic will not tie into the television show and it also won't come out as a traditional comic book. It will skip that process and go right to trade, after the series is finished.
ADVENTURES OF SUPERGIRL comes out on January 25, 2016 and according to Amazon, will be released in trade on August 9, 2016.
