The past few years has seen Marvel trying to fit the square peg of the Inhumans into the round hole of the rest of the Marvel Universe, and while the comics have often been good, the behind-the-scenes push has seemed forced. However, next year sees a resumed focus on the familiar Inhuman royal family as they head back out to space in new ongoing title Royals, and Al Ewing and Jonboy Meyers will be the ones to take them there.
CBS' Supergirl television show is one of the most fun and enjoyable superhero adaptations in recent memory, a true all-ages superhero show with an abundance of action, drama and most of all, heart. While we have to wait until DC Rebirth for Supergirl to return to the main DC Universe, comic fans have been getting their fix with the digital-first series Adventures of Supergirl by Sterling Gates and a roster of amazing artists, which updates every other Monday.
While originally planned to be digital-only before being collected in print, the adaptation has been so successful that DC is collecting the series into single issues first, beginning next month. Ahead of the print release, ComicsAlliance chatted with Gates about adapting character voices from another medium, weaving in between the continuity of the show, and the differences between writing for digital and print comics.
Say what you will about DC's mass media projects, but one thing they've been very good about over the past few years is giving giving us plenty of comics meant to take advantage of their mass media success. With Batman v Superman hitting screens this month, it's at the point where you literally can't open a box of Cheerios without finding a comic book in there somewhere, but for the TV universe, they've been relying on digital-first comics like The Adventures of Supergirl to help turn viewers into readers.
Now, though, it looks like they're expanding that plan into print. As announced today, DC will be publishing Adventures of Supergirl as a bimonthly comic at $2.99, serializing the digital-first stories that tie into the CBS Supergirl show in advance of a paperback collection set to debut this fall.
