Following the announcement that the first round of DC Super Hero Girl-themed LEGO Friends sets are on their way in time for Christmas 2016, and line's take on Harley Quinn getting the life-sized LEGO sculpture treatment at New York Comic Con, DC has announced that the property is coming to comics - starting right now!
Already the subject of several original graphic novels, DC Super Hero Girls is now entering the realm of serialized storytelling with its first digital comic. The series, available now, is written by Shea Fontana (who scripted the line's first OGN) with art by Agnes Garbowska, Yancey Labat and others.
Sub-titled "Past Times at Super Hero High," the series follows Wonder Woman, Harley, Poison Ivy, Batgirl and more on a time-traveling adventure as they attempt to correct a mistake in the past that has somehow resulted in Vandal Savage taking over as principal of Super Hero High.
"I’m thrilled to work on this Digital First series because it focuses on two of my favorite DC Super Hero Girls characters, Harley and Batgirl,” Fontana said in an official statement. “They’re an odd couple, but they make a fun dynamic duo as they team up to try and save Super Hero High. Through the story, we’ll explore what makes the Super Heroes tick and test the boundaries of their friendship. I’m also really excited to explore a new side of Bumblebee that hasn’t been seen before and can’t wait for fans to see so much of her heroic heart.”
Wonder Woman is the main character of the third graphic novel featuring the heroes. Written by Shea Fontana with art by Yancey Labat, the OGN finds Diana heading home to Olympus to visit her father, Zeus. Faced with the offer of 'leveling up' to full goddess status, things get complicated, leading to a family feud and a battle between Wonder Woman and her fellow classmates and friends.
Check out the full solicitation information for the digital-first series and third OGN below.
DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: PAST TIMES AT SUPER HERO HIGH
- For Liberty Belle’s “History of Heroes” class, WONDER WOMAN, SUPERGIRL, BATGIRL, HARLEY, KATANA, BUMBLEBEE and IVY take a time machine to learn about the past, up close and personal. But when the girls can’t help themselves from intervening in a past battle, they alter the course of history. When they return to the present, they find that Super Hero High is now run by VANDAL SAVAGE! The girls will have to ping-pong through time, trying to find the right way to restore order—and Amanda Waller—to Super Hero High.

DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: WONDER WOMAN: SUMMER OLYMPUS
- School’s out for summer, which means WONDER WOMAN has to take her annual trip to visit her dad, ZEUS. Wonder Woman usually feels like an outsider among the gods and goddess of her paternal family (and she hates the constant barrage of “You’ve gotten so big! How tall are you now?”), so she’s thrilled when Zeus says she can bring a few friends along. When the girls arrive at Olympus, it’s not long before the family reunion devolves into a family competition. When jealous ARES enters the scene and stokes the fires of distrust, the family feud turns into a battle for Wonder Woman’s soul! The gods offer Wonder Woman the ability to become “full goddess” and increase her powers – but at the cost of renouncing her life at Super Hero High. Will Wonder Woman refuse the offer, and if she does, might this mean war on Super Hero High? When Ares and STRIFE work their battle-magic on Wonder Woman’s friends, it’s super hero girl against super hero girl in the battle for Metropolis!
