Sterling Gates, Jamal Igle leave ‘Supergirl’
According to DC Comics’ Source blog, the outstanding creative team of “Supergirl” — Oklahoma-born writer Sterling Gates and artist Jamal Igle — will leave the series with issue #59. Nick Spencer and Bernard Chang will be the new team on the book.
In The Oklahoman, I named “Supergirl” the fifth-best comic book series of 2009:
Writer Sterling Gates, a Tulsa native, and artist Jamal Igle kept the mystery cooking of who the seemingly super-powered Superwoman was for much of 2009 in the pages of ” Supergirl.” Supergirl dealt with the death of her father and the seeming villainy of her mother. This, and great use of the supporting cast, including Cat Grant and Lana Lang, made ” Supergirl” a must-read Superbook.
I had an hourlong Q&A with Gates about his career at the Oklahoma History Center this summer; I plan to share excerpts from that Q&A in the future on the blog. I’m also looking forward to Gates’ next announced projects, and will share more information about those when that info is available.
