Official Press Release
SUPERGIRL #1 Third Printing (JUL058321) is written by Jeph Loeb, with art by Ian Churchill & Norm Rapmund. Due to arrive in stores on September 28, this new printing features a new cover by Churchill, inspired by the classic cover of ACTION COMICS #252.
"What the heck is going on?!" asks Loeb. "Supergirl, Power Girl, Wonder Woman are all in hot books! You'd think that suddenly the world woke up to fact that the DCU has strong, clever and often funny women who can drive the marketplace - and how great is that?! I'm very lucky to be working with such an extraordinary team: Ian Churchill, Mike Turner, Norm Rapmund, Peter Steigerwald and the fantastic Aspen color team and of course, my good luck charm, Richard Starkings. Big kisses to [Group Editor] Eddie Berganza and [Associate Editor] Jeanine Schaefer, too!"
Loeb adds, "Ian did this particular cover out of love for the original Supergirl and we wanted something that said thank you to all those fans who from 1958 until 2005 have stayed loyal to the character of Kara Zor-El. Personally, I think she's the coolest thing out there!"
"We're happy to make this issue available once again, as demand for it is still strong," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales. "Retailers should place their orders for the third printing soon to avoid missing out."
The SUPERGIRL #1 Third Printing (JUL058321) is available for order now and is scheduled to arrive in stores on September 28 with a cover price of $2.50 U.S. To ensure delivery on that date retailers must place orders by Sunday, September 18; please note that quantities will be limited and may sell out before September 18.
Retailers may order the issue by contacting their Diamond Customer Service Representative or DC Sales Representative, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
