EW.com has revealed that both “Supergirl” and “The Flash” TV shows will be receiving tie-in novels to be published by ABRAMS children’s books later this year.
“Supergirl: Age of Atlantis” will be written by Jo Whittemore (The Silverskin Legacy) and will see Kara Danvers deal with various weird goings-on all over National City. Not only have average citizens suddenly start performing feats, but the Department of Extranormal Operations (the DEO) has captured a humanoid sea creature, and Kara will have to figure out what drew him to National City, and what his connection to this surge of super-citizens may be.
“We’re big fans of The Flash and Supergirl TV shows at ABRAMS,” Andrew Smith, senior vice president and publisher ABRAMS children’s books, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be working with Warner Bros., the shows’ production teams, and super-fan authors Barry Lyga and Jo Whittemore to introduce two epic new series featuring original adventures not seen on TV for the DC Super Heroes… These new stories expand upon the hit television shows in exciting new ways, and we can’t wait for fans and new readers to experience them!”
Artist César Moreno has created the covers for both books, with “Supergirl: Age of Atlantis” scheduled to be released on November 7.
