Supergirl: Being Super
2016 has been quite a year, and we can only imagine what 2017 will bring. As I look back at what superhero comics have been in the past year, I can't help but think about what the future holds. DC Rebirth, I admit as someone who was skeptical going in, has overall led to some great comics. Civil War II has been less encouraging, although there have still been some very good Marvel comics this year.
DC and Marvel comics seem simultaneously to always be relaunching and never changing. But there are changes creeping in around the edges if you pay attention. With that in mind, I've put together five hopes --- five suggested resolutions if you will --- for what I'd like to see from mainstream superhero comics in 2017.
2016 is almost offer, but there's still one comic of this year that we're really excited about, coming in right under the wire. Supergirl: Being Super #1 is the first issue of a four-part out-of-continuity mini-series that explores Supergirl's history. It's basically a teen drama starring Kara Danvers, written by award-winning This One Summer writer Mariko Tamaki, with art by Joëlle Jones.
With the book coming out this week, ComicsAlliance sat down with Tamaki and Jones to talk about what makes Supergirl different from other people, what makes this version different from other Supergirls, and why giving Supergirl a queer best friend was so important.
Supergirl is getting a second comic series (or a third if you count the digital-first Adventures of Supergirl based on the TV show). In addition to the regular monthly Supergirl series that started this week, December sees the launch of a four-issue miniseries by Mariko Tamaki and Joëlle Jones, with the title Supergirl: Being Super.
