I don’t know if you’ve heard, but I’m writing the new Hawkgirl series for DC Comics!
It’s true! That’s my name in the corner of this fantastic cover by the astounding Amancay Nahuelpan (pencils and inks) and incredible Adriano Lucas (colors). Honestly, I’m still having trouble believing its there myself. But there it is! I am immensely proud of this comic, starring characters I have intense affection for, and I cannot wait for you to read it this summer. Hawkgirl #1 comes out July 18 and it’s a blast from start to finish!
Here’s the official blurb:
A brand-new adventure with sky-high action, adventure, and intrigue… Kendra Saunders, the winged warrior better known as Hawkgirl, has been one of the DC Universe’s greatest heroes for a long time, serving as a member of both the Justice League and the Justice Society. But with the Justice League disbanded, Kendra decides she needs a fresh start and heads to Metropolis to begin a new life. That life is quickly interrupted by a mysterious villain with a powerful connection to the Nth Metal that makes up Hawkgirl’s wings and weapons. Hawkgirl will also feature a series of variant covers that recount Kendra’s DC history.
One thing that blurb does not say–which I have been given clearance to talk about–is that Hawkgirl will also feature none other than Galaxy! That’s right, Taylor Barzelay, the little trans alien lesbian that could from Galaxy: The Prettiest Star is ready for her first proper superhero adventure! Or at least, she thinks she’s ready….
Speaking of gays–alien and otherwise–DC has recently released the cover of The DC Book of Pride, a book I wrote that gives all the important info some of their fantastic LGBTQ+ characters!
Now, this book doesn’t have every queer and trans DC character (there’s about 200!) but it does have all of the noteworthy ones, plus a few obscurities I made sure to include. And yes, Galaxy is in there. The DC Book of Pride drops May 16.
Summer reading has never looked better!
