So let's talk about some Supergirl optimism after months of some hand wringing.
It was announced yesterday that Jeff Lemire's proposed Justice League Canada book is actually going to be called Justice League United. It is going to have both Earth-centric stories and cosmic level adventures. And one of the member of the League is going to be Supergirl! The book starts in April.
Here is a link to the announcement in USA Today: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2014/01/16/justice-league-united-comic-book-series/4529613/ It is well worth reading the whole article.
Now there is a ton of stuff to like about this. Supergirl being in the Justice League is a great boost for the character. I enjoyed her stint as the muscle in James Robinson's JLA a while back.
Maybe her Red Daughter period will really be 'a moment'.
This makes me very very happy. And as a big Lemire fan, I can't wait to see how he writes Kara!
And assuming nothing drastic, it means we will have Kara in at least 2 books a month for the foreseeable future.
Art on the book is going to be done by Mike McKone. I like McKone's smooth style. I can't wait to see his take on these characters.
It also provides an excuse to repost my McKone Supergirl commission from several years ago.
This is great news on many levels!
