Following up on the announcement that Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and Amanda Conner are leaving Power Girl after issue #12, DC’s the Source blog reveals who will be replacing them. Starting with issue #13, writer Judd Winick and artist Sami Basri will chronicle the adventures of Kara Zor-L.
“It is with GREAT fear and excitement that Sami and I leap into this gig,” Winick said. “Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, and Amanda Conner have bought an amazing, fresh, and inventive rebirth to this character. Our greatest challenge will be to remain faithful to what they’ve created and also take Power Girl to a new place. As far as the course that the story will take, I’ll be uncharacteristically forthcoming : The story is tied to JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST. Not CHAINED to it, but tied. Power Girl has a history with the JLI that will be explored. A lot.”
As previously reported, Winick is teaming with writer Keith Giffen on the 26-issue biweekly Justice League: Generation Lost mini-series.
