The upcoming Power Girl Special will serve as the launching point for two new Dawn of DC titles.
Due out on May 30, the first story in the special, naturally, focuses on Power Girl, who has new powers as seen in back-up stories in the pages of Action Comics. Come September, Power Girl will star in her own title by writer Leah Williams and artist Eduardo Pansica.
Per DC, Power Girl will face “a long dormant Kryptonian threat” that has returned to take down Superman and his family.
The special will also include a back-up story starring two former Justice League International members, Fire and Ice. That story is by Joanne Starer, Natacha Busto, Tamra Bonvillain and Ariana Maher, and it’ll set up a new title, Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville.
Here’s how DC describes the duo’s new series:
In Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville #1, Superman sent the former Justice Leaguers packing for Smallville to lie low following their extremely public and utterly disastrous mission in Baltimore, and in doing so doomed them to a fate worse than death: irrelevance. Ice finds herself drawn to the quiet life and dreams of planting roots. But Fire…well, Fire will do just about anything to get the hell outta dodge and back on the Super Hero circuit—including challenging the DC Universe’s biggest villains to a knock-down, drag-out, live-streamed brawl in the streets of Smallville! The series is crafted by writer Starer, artist Bustos, colorist Bonvillain, and letterer Maher.
Power Girl #1 and Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville will both arrive in stores Sept. 5.
