Bleeding Cool told you that DC Comics was rushing through a Supergirl comic book as a result of the warm reception the CBS TV series has received, but that it would be a Digital First title.
The collection will be for August, so we can expect a monthly comic version in March – and the digital first copies, well, any day now.
No creator details yet, here is the synopsis.
SUPERGIRL: DIGITAL FIRST VOL. 1 ties directly into critically acclaimed Fall 2015 hit television show Supergirl, continuing storylines as they appear on the show.
Kara Zor-El landed on Earth after many years stuck in en route from her now-destroyed home planet Krypton, having followed in her famous cousin Superman's footsteps. Upon arriving, she was taken in by the lovely Danvers family and taught to hide her un-Earthly powers from sight. As the world falls in love with her super hero cousin Superman, Kara starts to feel the urge to embrace her powers, especially when her powers can save someone she loves.
But does National City want a Supergirl? Is the world ready for another super hero? And what other-worldly consequences arrive once Kara Danvers reveals her true self? Find out in the stories between the episodes in SUPERGIRL: DIGITAL-FIRST VOL. 1!
And while we are waiting, here's the variant cover of the reprint DC Essentials: Supergirl #1, exclusive to Wizard World's Comic Con Box.
