DC Cancels Supergirl in May

In December, Supergirl #37 got a new creative team of Jody Houser and Rachael Stott, replacing Marc Andreyko, Eduardo Pansica and Julio Ferreira but went right into the Infected storyline, with Kara turned into a Dark Dimension version of herself, with a Kryptonian twist, as part of the DC Year Of The Villain storyline. And it is that version of the character they have been telling stories with since. But it looks as if it won't take. The new solicitations for May list #42 as the final issue. With Supergirl still pretty much the bad guy. Or at least perceived that way.

I was only meant to be on till #40, but DC asked me to finish up this run of adventures for Kara. It's been so much fun. It's sad that it's finishing, but no book stays gone forever. ❤ Also- nothing lined up after this if anyone's looking for an artist 🤞

With writer Jody Houser replying

We definitely need to work together on something else!

I just recommended Raechel for something else last week, but they went in a different direction. There must always be more Doctor Who for those two, right? Right?
