For the longest time, Supergirl fans have been wondering why there isn't a comic on the shelves starring Kara. In particular, folks have been wondering why there isn't a digital tie-in book, linked to the show, similar to what we have seen DC do with Arrow and The Flash.
And the release, part of an Amazon solicit for the book, confirms the book:
SUPERGIRL: DIGITAL FIRST VOL. 1 ties directly into critically acclaimed
Fall 2015 hit television show Supergirl, continuing storylines as they
appear on the show. Kara Zor-El landed on Earth after many
years stuck in en route from her now-destroyed home planet Krypton,
having followed in her famous cousin Superman's footsteps. Upon
arriving, she was taken in by the lovely Danvers family and taught to
hide her un-Earthly powers from sight. As the world falls in love with
her super hero cousin Superman, Kara starts to feel the urge to embrace
her powers, especially when her powers can save someone she loves. But does National City want a Supergirl? Is the world ready for another
super hero? And what other-worldly consequences arrive once Kara
Danvers reveals her true self? Find out in the stories between the
episodes in SUPERGIRL: DIGITAL-FIRST VOL. 1!
So hooray for us! A book is going to come out ... FINALLY!
Now comes the fun of picking over this relatively generic promo piece.
There has been no official release from DC Comics, so this reads like something very preliminary.
First off, I can't imagine the title is Supergirl:Digital First.
Second, there isn't a creative team listed.
So while we now know that there will be a book, we don't know much more. So everyone start thinking again about who your dream Supergirl creative team would be.
