Fans of the CW superhero drama ‘Stargirl’ got some disappointing news when DC Studios announced that the show would not get renewed for a fourth season. However, series showrunner Geoff Johns is giving viewers a bit of closure with the announcement that he is writing a new comic book miniseries ‘Stargirl: The Lost Children.’
“When I opened up Stargirl: The Lost Children #1 it gave me that same sense of wonder I get when I watch the television series. This should really come as no surprise since the comic is written by Geoff Johns. In addition to creating Courtney Whitmore (in 1999’s Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E.) Johns has been the showrunner for Stargirl for its entire run. It’s safe to say that nobody knows Courtney Whitmore and her world better than Geoff Johns,” DC said on their website.
The show did have a brief crossover with the Arrowverse only to be revealed that they are not part of that same universe.
DC Comics revealed the cover for the first issue:
“Unlike the Earth-Prime special from earlier this year, this series doesn’t take place in the continuity of the show. However, don’t let that deter you, and don’t worry if you’re new to comics. Stargirl: The Lost Children is completely new reader friendly. In fact, there are plenty of familiar elements that will make you feel like you’re watching the show,” they continued.
DC added, “I should mention, if you happen to be a fan of the ’90s Young Justice comic, then Stargirl: The Lost Children will have you grinning from ear-to-ear. Certain moments and concepts from the series are discussed, including Old Justice, a group of geriatric superheroes. (They also mention Merry Pemberton, Girl of 1,000 Gimmicks, who was a recent topic in our monthly Ask…the Question column.) But don’t worry if you haven’t read those issues or even know who these characters are, everything is explained clearly for new readers, so you won’t feel like you’re missing anything.”
‘Stargirl: The Lost Children’ will be a six-part miniseries.
