I almost had heart flutters when I saw the headline on the Comicbook site – “DC Cancels Supergirl”. Turns out that the comic book series has been cancelled! The final issue will ship in April according to the writer Steve Orlando who tweeted about it.

 

The series, which launched at the start of DC’s Rebirth initiative in May of 2016, more closely resembled the Supergirl TV show than any previous version of the character in the comics had, with ties to the DEO, adoptive parents who were alive and well, and a relationship with Cat Grant.

Supergirl #20 will hit the stands on April 11 from writers Steve Orlando and Jody Houser with artist Robson Rocha. You can see the official solicitation text below.
