DC PROUDLY ANNOUNCES ‘SUPERGIRL: WOMAN OF TOMORROW’

Bilquis Evely, Mat Lopes and Tom King launch Supergirl into DC’s Infinite Frontier!

Supergirl returns to DC’s comics this summer to headline her first new series in years: Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow! Launching in DC’s Infinite Frontier era with art by Bilquis Evely and Mat Lopes, written by Tom King, Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow takes Supergirl—and sidekick Krypto—into space on a journey that will have Supergirl fans cheering for more!

Kara Zor-El has seen some epic adventures over the years, but has recently found her life without meaning or purpose. Here she is, a young woman who saw her planet destroyed and was sent to Earth to protect a baby cousin who ended up not needing her. What was it all for? Wherever she goes, people only see her through the lens of Superman’s fame.

Just when Supergirl thinks she’s had enough, everything changes. An alien girl seeks her out for a vicious mission: her world has been destroyed and the bad guys responsible are still out there. She wants revenge and if Supergirl doesn’t help her, she’ll do it herself, whatever the cost.

Now, a Kryptonian, a dog and an angry heartbroken child head out into space on a journey that will shake them to their very core!

Brought to you by Eisner Award-winning writer Tom King (Batman/Catwoman, Mister Miracle and Rorschach) and Eisner nominee artist Bilquis Evely (Sandman Universe: The Dreaming) this maxiseries promises to be a character-defining masterpiece the likes of which has never been seen before for DC’s Maiden of Might.

Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, a new eight-issue limited series by Bilquis Evely, Mat Lopes and Tom King, launches on June 15.

Great! I didn’t like the tv series to much politics for me, but I do read the comics so this is good news. She did spend her final 13 issue in space of the last series so little disappointed that she’s going back to space. Also don’t like the size of her belt looks a little to big, otherwise the costume looks good.

I see that they gave her a classic look. Will this be connected to her Superwoman comic or is this a separate continuity?

Good question not sure, Krypto did join her for the final year of her last series since he’s with her again I’m thinking it may be a continuation to the previous series. Also I think Superwoman is just her in the future so technically there both the same person but honestly I don’t know.

Okay , someone help get something I’ve never understood. I see swords in comics soooooo much when the characters that wield them have super-strength or other super powers. Now, Kara has all the same powers as her cousin. What in the multiverse does she need with a SWORD?. I suppose that maybe where she’s going there is a red sun, but that has not been made clear to us yet. And people that can destroy planets are probably well armed with super weapons, so a sword (unless it is an enchanted weapon) wouldn’t be much of a help. The only… Read more »

I *assume* it’s supposed to be evocative of specific imagery, perhaps medieval (even though that sword is not). I’m not particularly well-versed in any of it, it might be based on some well-known legend, or it might be like a king or general, giving the order for his armies to march into battle or something like that, signaling a beginning or action or conflict.

Since I don’t know for sure, I choose to believe it’s evocative of She-Ra, Princess of Power.

I was just thinking that she reminded me of She-Ra.
Ha ha! 😀

OMFG, yasss! 😀 This fellow Supergirl fan (as well as that of a Superman and Super Family one here, respectively) is so fricking happy to have Kara back in her own title, even if it’s just for a miniseries run at this point (I’d preferred to have had an ongoing monthly but eh). I can’t wait to see Tom King’s take on Supergirl, particularly because his take on Superman in that some years ago now Walmart first giant DC were putting out over there in the U.S. was really good. I love Bilquis Evely’s art, especially when she was alternating… Read more »

I should add to my little snit that I AM onboard with the mini-series and am looking forward to reading it. Not just because I am a Supergirl fan, but anytime I get to see Krypto? That is icing on the cake.
