SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19 TO BE REPRINTED AS SUPERGIRL #0
The nearly sold-out SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19 (JAN050284) will return this August as SUPERGIRL #0, a special issue leading into the Girl of Steel's new series.
SUPERGIRL #0 features the story from SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19, written by Jeph Loeb, with art and cover by Ian Churchill & Norm Rapmund. The cover, by Churchill & Rapmund, features the Supergirl figure from the original cover art from SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19 against a white background.
"When Ian and I finished SUPERMAN/BATMAN #19, we realized it was Supergirl's launchpad, bringing the reader up to speed with what Kara had been doing since her superstar debut in S/B #8-13, " says Loeb. "The reaction to that issue has been astonishing, and we're thrilled that DC has created this special edition as a preview to the series just as it explodes out in August!"
SUPERGIRL #0 will be solicited in the June Previews (Volume XV #6), and is scheduled to arrive in stores on August 10 with a cover price of $2.99 U.S.
