February 19, 2009: Jamal Igle Talks Supergirl and Superwoman

Newsarama.com caught up with artist Jamal Igle at the recent New York Comic Con to ask him about his job illustrating the monthly "Supergirl" comic book. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    NRAMA: How has it been working with a fairly new writer in Sterling Gates?

    JI: We talk a lot about the story, and we're getting more comfortable with each other. We trade a lot of emails back and forth and a few phone conversations every couple of weeks. And I like Sterling. He's a great guy, and he's a damn talented writer. I'm really, really enjoying working with him. And I'm enjoying getting to know him as a friend as well. It's very cool.

    NRAMA: Let's talk about this mystery in the books right now. I'm going to just come out and ask, since we're here among friends at the convention. Who the hell is Superwoman?

    JI: [laughs] All I will say is she's somebody who's been in the books at least since the New Krypton Special.

    NRAMA: Has it been fun knowing who she is under the mask and watching people's reaction to the mystery?

    JI: It has. Me being the guy who is constantly looking at Newsarama and Comicbloc, and looking at everybody's guesses, I can honestly say only 1 percent of people online have figured it out already. And they don't even realize they've figured it out already.
