DC Super Hero Girls just relaunched on Cartoon Network, and this fall they’ll be flying back on to bookshelves as well.
DC Zoom is busy at the moment with a lot of new titles on the way such as Swamp Kid, and a new line of DC Super Hero Girls graphic novels. While these certainly not be the first ones produced, this new line will be a bit different in that they will exist within the continuity of the animated series created by Lauren Faust.
Writing duties on the graphic novels has fallen to Amy Wolfram who is looking forward to the task. “I’m very excited to be working on DC Super Hero Girls,” Wolfram said in a statement. “Not only do we get to see these iconic superheroes in action as they protect Metropolis, we also get to peek behind the masks and capes to see their secret identities as they deal with an even greater challenge — being a teenager in high school!”
If Wolfram’s name sounds familiar, it should. She has worked on Teen Titans Go! as well as writing the Teen Titans Year One miniseries.
Characters this time around in the DC Super Hero Girls include Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, and Zatanna.
Here’s the official blurb for the book.
A new era of DC Super Hero Girls begins in DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High! When Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Green Lantern, Bumblebee, and Zatanna are continually late to class because of their crime-fighting, they are sentenced to finding an after-school club for a whole week … or else they’ll be suspended!
But finding a club is not as easy as it looks, and when the girls keep finding themselves kicked out of the clubs they like, they must think outside of the box and go outside their comfort zones to avoid suspension. Just when they thought secret identities and balancing school with super-heroics had enough challenges!
DC Super Hero Girls: At Metropolis High continues to develop the relationships forged throughout the beloved DC Super Hero Girls series. This story is perfect for ages 6-10 and a great entry point into the DC Universe and graphic novels.
The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid is due for release on Oct. 15, 2019.
