Find out about Tulsa-born writer Sterling Gates’ upcoming run on Adventure Comics at the DCU Source blog. Adventure Comics’ Assistant Editor Wil Moss said:
ADVENTURE COMICS #8 is the start of a four-issue arc connecting ADVENTURE to the next big Superman story – “Brainiac & The Legion of Super-Heroes.” James Robinson & Julian Lopez will provide a 10-page story about the Legion members who are in the 21st Century; Sterling Gates & Clayton Henry will provide a 10-pager about the Legion in the 31st Century; and Eric Trautmann & DC newcomer Pier Gallo (wait till you see this guy’s stuff!) will provide a 10-pager about General Lane’s Human Defense Corps.
Gates also gave an extensive interview on his current project, “World’s Finest,” at Comic Book Resources.
“Stephanie and Kara are really similar – both young women who are trying to live up to a mantle, both very misunderstood by the people in their respective crime-fighting families – so it was a lot of fun to introduce their relationship and see them notice one another and become friends,” Gates told CBR. “I’m really proud of that issue, and I hope we’ll get to see their relationship continue to blossom.”
In the CBR interview, Gates also gives some hints on what’s to come with “Supergirl,” and what’s happening with longtime Super-character Lana Lang.
