"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
DC Comics’ Supergirl has been in a state of flux since the departure in December of the regular creative team of Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle. They were followed, if only briefly, by Nick Spencer and then James Peaty and Bernard Chang.
And now, with June’s Supergirl #65, Kelly Sue DeConnick, ChrisCross and Marc Deering will take a three-issue turn on the series, marking the writer’s first work for the publisher.
DeConnick, who co-wrote 30 Days of Night: Eben & Stella with Steve Niles, is best known for her recent Marvel miniseries Osborn and her one-shots Sif and Rescue. She’s also contributed stories to Marvel’s Girl Comics and Image’s The Comic Book Tattoo and 24seven.
A DC veteran, ChrisCross has drawn Firestorm, The Outsiders and Superman/Batman, as well as Milestone’s Blood Syndicate and Heroes.
Here’s the solicitation for Supergirl #65, which hits stores on June 15: “Co-ed of Steel? Supergirl goes undercover on a college campus to help Lois Lane uncover the truth behind a string of recent student disappearances! What they uncover, though, leads Supergirl directly into a confrontation with one of the DCU’s deadliest villains!”
