Supergirl: Jim Lee Offers Artwork Honor; Series Finale 2 Hours?

With global fan event DC FanDome less than 48-hours away, one of the events we're looking forward to is the tribute to The CW's Melissa Benoist-starring Supergirl, ending its run next month after six impactful seasons. During the special, the cast gets the opportunity to reflect back on what the show and the fans meant to them over the years. But world-renowned comic book artist, writer & DC Comics editor Jim Lee wasn't willing to wait quite that long, taking to social media to praise the series & its cast, while also offering a look at some amazing artwork he shared to honor the Arrowverse series.
