For more on the upcoming "Supergirl" title, check out our interview with series writer Jeph Loeb from January.
Official Press Release
The issue, written by Jeph Loeb with art by Ian Churchill & Norm Rapmund, will feature two covers: one by Churchill and the other by Turner. This issue will ship to retailers with 75% Churchill covers and 25% Turner covers.
"Ian and I are having a ball with the Girl of Steel," says Loeb. "Our goal is to bring the same brand of excitement, adventure, fun and nail-biting cliffhangers that had Supergirl burst out of SUPERMAN/BATMAN into her own title. Getting Michael Turner to do the variant continues to show our love for Kara Zor-El and an added bonus for both the readers and the retailers!"
SUPERGIRL #1 will be solicited in the June Previews (Volume XV #6), and is scheduled to arrive in stores on August 10 with a cover price of $2.99 U.S.
Also, the SUPERMAN/BATMAN: SUPERGIRL HC (DEC040246), collecting issues #8-13 of the hit series, is available for reorder.
SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19 TO BE REPRINTED AS SUPERGIRL #0
SUPERGIRL #0 features the story from SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19, written by Jeph Loeb, with art and cover by Ian Churchill & Norm Rapmund. The cover, by Churchill & Rapmund, features the Supergirl figure from the original cover art from SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19 against a white background.
"When Ian and I finished SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19, we realized it was Supergirl's launchpad, bringing the reader up to speed with what Kara had been doing since her superstar debut in S/B #8-13," says Loeb. "The reaction to that issue has been astonishing, and we're thrilled that DC has created this special edition as a preview to the series just as it explodes out in August!"
