For more on the upcoming “Supergirl” title, check out our interview with series writer Jeph Loeb from January.
Official Press Release
Superstar artist Michael Turner, who illustrated the best-selling SUPERMAN/BATMAN storyline that introduced Kara Zor-El, is set to provide a special variant cover for August’s SUPERGIRL #1!
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
The nearly sold-out SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19 (JAN050284) will return this August as SUPERGIRL #0, a special issue leading into the Girl of Steel’s new series.
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!”
SUPERGIRL #0 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.
