DC Announces 'DC Super Hero Girls' Digital Comic Series
After two full-length original graphic novels, DC Entertainment will be bringing its DC Super Hero Girls property to serial storytelling with a brand-new digital comic, titled DC Super Hero Girls: Past Times at Super Hero High.
The series, announced Thursday during the DC All Access panel at New York Comic Con, will be written by Shea Fontana with art by Yancey Labat, Agnes Garbowska and others. It will follow Wonder Woman, Supergirl and the other DC Entertainment heroes as they attempt to fix the timeline after accidentally changing history during a class outing.
In a statement supporting the announcement, Fontana said that the series will focus particularly on Harley Quinn and Batgirl, two of her favorite characters.
"They’re an odd couple, but they make a fun dynamic duo as they team up to try and save Super Hero High," she said. "Through the story, we’ll explore what makes the Super Heroes tick and test the boundaries of their friendship."
The brand, which focuses on girls aged 6-12, also will expand with a newly announced third graphic novel, DC Super Hero Girls: Wonder Woman — Summer Olympus, to be released in July 2017, also by Fontana and Labat.
The first installment of DC Super Hero Girls: Past Times at Super Hero High is already available for free via the DC App, Readdcentertainment.com, iBooks, comiXology.com, Google Play, Kindle Store, and Nook Store.
