DC Comics has officially announced DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High, the next installment in their acclaimed series of DC Super Hero Girls graphic novels.
At Metropolis High will be the first in a brand-new line of DCSHG stories penned by comic book and animation writer Amy Wolfram (Teen Titans, Teen Titans Go!), which will be published under the DC Zoom imprint and take place in the same universe as Cartoon Network's new DC Super Hero Girls animated series.
Joining Wolfram on At Metropolis High will be longtime DCSHG artist Yancey Labat, who has previously illustrated such books under the series' banner as Final Crisis, Hits and Myths, Summer Olympics, Past Times at Super Hero High, Date with Disaster and The Search for Atlantis.
"I'm very excited to be working on DC Super Hero Girls," Wolfram said. "Not only do we get to see these iconic superheroes in action as they protect Metropolis, we also get to peek behind the masks and capes to see their secret identities as they deal with an even greater challenge -- being a teenager in high school!"
"I'm so excited to work with Amy on this new series," Labat added. "The new look is fun to draw. The characters are expressive and over-the-top, and I love the zaniness and looseness of the designs."
Per the official synopsis for At Metropolis High,
A new era of DC Super Hero Girls begins in the upcoming original graphic novel DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: AT METROPOLIS HIGH! When Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee and Zatanna are continually late to class because of their crime-fighting, they are told to find an after-school club for a whole week or else be suspended. But finding a club is not as easy as it looks, and when the girls keep finding themselves kicked out of the clubs, they must think outside of the box and go out of their comfort zones to avoid suspension. Just when they thought balancing school with secret identities and super-heroing had enough challenges.
Written by Amy Wolfram and illustrated by Yancey Labat, DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High will be available in comic shops on Oct. 9 and wherever books are sold on Oct. 15.
