On Tuesday, we made the announcement in USA Today that DC was undertaking a historic renumbering of 52 superhero titles across the line, starting with JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 by our superstar creators Geoff Johns and Jim Lee.
Bernard Chang's done some great work on books like WONDER WOMAN and SUPERMAN over the years, but he's been straight up killing it on his most recent gig as an ongoing artist for SUPERGIRL. We asked Bernard to walk us through his artist process and how he creates the stunning art currently appearing in the pages of SUPERGIRL:
Supergirl has faced off against her fair share of villains – Metallo, Clayface, and oh, some guy who goes by Darkseid, to name a few. But with the introduction of a new foe in SUPERGIRL #62, an enemy that promises to unleash havoc, Kara must be prepared for what could be one of her most dangerous battles yet. Written by James Peaty and featuring art by Bernard Chang and Blond, SUPERGIRL #62 flies into stands tomorrow.[gallery link="file" order="DESC" columns="2"]
Super villains are appearing out of thin air, ambushing the DC Universe’s young heroes. There’s a new smart phone app that let’s users photograph and track superheroes. Could there be a connection? Kara takes a page out of Lois Lane’s book and begins to investigate in SUPERGIRL #61, by James Peaty and series regular Bernard Chang, on sale February 16.

After all the excitement for REIGN OF DOOMSDAY we received after sharing Kenneth Rocafort’s awesome cover to ACTION COMICS #901, we know you’re anxious for more. Click below for this month’s Superman solicits: ACTION COMICS #901 Written by PAUL CORNELL
I know I'm far from the only T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents fan here. I've been tipped off to a few of the guest artists who'll be contributing to upcoming issues, and they're just too cool not to share. (Just check out the Francis Manapul cover for issue five above!) I'll let you hear the news straight from T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents editor, Wil Moss:
Can the Girl of Steel defeat a threat that’s already knocked out an entire planet of Bizarros? What about BizarroGirl? Can Supergirl trust her twisted opposite number to help? My guess is “no.” But writer Sterling Gates and artist Bernard Chang might have other ideas. SUPERGIRL #57 hits Wednesday. [gallery link="file"]
Hey, it’s New York Comicon. Did you expect a quiet few days? First off, I’d like to give a huge tip of the hat to writer Sterling Gates and artist Jamal Igle. As many fans have said across the web, they’ve done a masterful job with SUPERGIRL and you can be sure their names will be popping up on the credits of many books to come. But more on that later. Who’s taking over the reins of SUPERGIRL?
We swung by SUPERGIRL Assistant Editor Wil Moss’ office last week and got a chance to get a sneak peek at his usually impressive wall of covers, but also at a bit of news. Looks like the hyper-talented Bernard Chang will be returning to the Superman books with a guest spot on SUPERGIRL #57, pairing him with regular writer Sterling Gates. We’ve got a first look at some of the finished pages (which are lovely, but click below to find out for yourselves), but before we show ‘em off, let’s touch base with Wil to get a sense of why his issue merits some special attention.
