Nick Spencer and Bernard Chang Take Over ‘Supergirl’ [NYCC]

After a long 26-issue run on the title, creators Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle are saying goodbye to DC Comics’ “Supergirl.” Beginning with January’s issue #60, the series’ new creative team will consist of Nick Spencer (“T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents,” “Morning Glories”) and Bernard Chang (“Superman”).Gates & Igle have been praised for their sophisticated handling of Kara Zor-El, whose reintroduction to the DC Universe and portrayal in the last decade were consistently criticized for being too sexualized and lacking in character development.

“Supergirl” editor Will Moss told DC’s The Source blog:

“How do you follow a character-defining run like Sterling and Jamal had on SUPERGIRL? Beats me – that’s Nick and Bernard’s problem! But if anyone can do it, it’s these two guys. Get ready for a deadly new version of an old threat (one with ties to Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul’s run on ADVENTURE COMICS), and a laundry list of guest stars – the promo piece doesn’t even show half of ‘em! So while Supergirl the character has never been in more trouble, rest assured that SUPERGIRL the title has never been stronger!”

Gates and Igle’s next projects have yet to be announced, but DC says their names will appear in the credits of many books to come.
