DC All Access
I have been pleasantly surprised with the amount of publicity DC has been giving the new creative team on Supergirl. Between interviews on the usual websites and videos on DC All Access, the creative team has been spreading the word about the 'new' Kara and Crucible.
And that coverage reached a wide audience of DC fans this week when the Supergirl book was the topic of the DC All Access page in all comics this week!
The opening paragraphs talk about angst and confusion but there isn't the bratty negative overlay of prior runs and prior runs publicity. Instead this one goes on to talk about the new direction and Crucible.
And mentioning the new Batgirl and Divergent is savvy. Both of those properties are wildly popular right now.
In fact, I keep wondering why this run hasn't caught the 'lightning in a bottle' that Babs new direction has. This Kara is strong, independent, heroic, and fierce. The book has a female writer and artist. The concept of Crucible is solid and fun.
I can only hope that this little article entices some new readers into the fold.
And kudos for DC for promoting the book!
