If you’re a fan of adorable superheroes who can kick butt and juggle homework, then it’s time you listened up. At New York Comic Con, DC Comics took a moment to announce a few new DC Superhero Hero Girls publications at their All Access Panel.
Today, the publisher announced that DC Super Hero Girls: Past Times At Super Hero High will be hitting shelves before a DC Super Hero Girls graphic novel titled Wonder Woman: Summer Olympus debuts next July.
“I’m thrilled to work on this Digital First series because it focuses on two of my favorite DC Super Hero Girls characters, Harley and Batgirl,” said writer Shea Fontana.
“They’re an odd couple, but they make a fun dynamic duo as they team up to try and save Super Hero High. Through the story, we’ll explore what makes the Super Heroes tick and test the boundaries of their friendship. I’m also really excited to explore a new side of Bumblebee that hasn’t been seen before and can’t wait for fans to see so much of her heroic heart.”
If you want to check out a synopsis of Past Times At Super Hero High, then you can read it below:
“DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: PAST TIMES AT SUPER HERO HIGH will follow iconic DC characters Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley, Katana, Bumblebee and Ivy as they embark on a time traveling mission that goes haywire, leading the teen superheroes on a wild goose chase through time in hopes to restore order at present-day Super Hero High.”
The series will roll out new chapter every other week on Wednesdays. You can go ahead and download the first chapter for free here by using the promo code: PASTTIMES. Following chapters will be available on the DC App, iBooks, comiXology, Kindle, and more.
A synopsis for Wonder Woman: Summer Olympus was also released and can be read below:
“School’s out for summer, which means WONDER WOMAN has to take her annual trip to visit her dad, ZEUS. Wonder Woman usually feels like an outsider among the gods and goddess of her paternal family (and she hates the constant barrage of “You’ve gotten so big! How tall are you now?”), so she’s thrilled when Zeus says she can bring a few friends along. When the girls arrive at Olympus, it’s not long before the family reunion devolves into a family competition. When jealous ARES enters the scene and stokes the fires of distrust, the family feud turns into a battle for Wonder Woman’s soul! The gods offer Wonder Woman the ability to become “full goddess” and increase her powers – but at the cost of renouncing her life at Super Hero High. Will Wonder Woman refuse the offer, and if she does, might this mean war on Super Hero High? When Ares and STRIFE work their battle-magic on Wonder Woman’s friends, it’s super hero girl against super hero girl in the battle for Metropolis!”
This news is the latest update from the bestselling series. Earlier this year, Warner Bros. announced a full-length animation feature called DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year hit Digital HD on August 9. And, most recently, girl group Fifth Harmony teamed up with DC Entertainment to create a mash-up music video for the series called “That’s My Girl.”
