NEW PRINTING OF SUPERGIRL #1 FOLLOWS ONE-DAY SELLOUTS

The Supergirl from Krypton is back! And after issues #1 and #0 of her hot new series both sold out within one day of reaching stores on August 10, DC Comics is rushing "SUPERGIRL #1" back to press for a new printing!

"SUPERGIRL #1" Second Printing (JUN058272) features a story written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Ian Churchill & Norm Rapmund. The new printing features a pencil version of the cover by Michael Turner!

" I couldn't be happier for the team, but mostly for Supergirl herself," says Loeb. " I've said before that a good idea is a good idea - and "SUPERGIRL" is a great idea. Our hope is that readers and retailers will take the time to get to know her, just like the heroes and villains in the DCU are doing in the story. Thanks again to all the new readers and the Supergirl fans who are supporting her new adventures! "

"We've thrilled at the strong response: "SUPERGIRL" has gotten from readers and retailers," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales. " Now's the time for retailers to order the second printing of issue #1, as well as increasing orders on the other issues. "

"SUPERGIRL #1" Second Printing (JUN058272) is available for order now and is scheduled to arrive in stores on September 7 with a cover price of $2.99 U.S. To ensure delivery on that date retailers must place orders by Sunday, August 28; please note that quantities will be limited and may sell out before August 28. DC urges retailers to place orders as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

Retailers may order the issue by contacting their Diamond Customer Service Representative or DC Sales Representative, or by email at reorders@diamondcomics.com.

Upcoming issues are available as follows:

* "SUPERGIRL #2" (JUL050209) is available for advance reorder and is scheduled to arrive in stores on September 14.

* "SUPERGIRL #3" (AUG050199) is solicited in the August Previews (Volume XV #8) and is scheduled to arrive in stores on October 12.

Also available for reorder is the "SUPERMAN/BATMAN: SUPERGIRL HC" (DEC040246), collecting the "SUPERMAN/BATMAN" story that introduced the new Girl of Steel!
