Amid news of widespread comic book sales in light of the recent DC Studios slate announcement, Tom King takes it upon himself to ensure Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow is read by as many people as possible. On Saturday, the longtime DC Comics writer revealed that he’s giving away any copies he has of the comic completely free. In a video of the writer signing all of his copies, King revealed that he delivers all issues to the Third Eye Comics location in Annapolis, Maryland, where they are then given away to customers for free.
“Since it is sold out everywhere, I searched my house and found all my compositions super girlKing tweeted Saturday. “As a very small thank you for all the great support, I’m signing these and taking them to [Third Eye Comics] today in Annapolis to be given away for free to customers.”

In addition to Woman of tomorrowother collected expenses are selling like hot cakes, from All Star Superman to Grant Morrison’s Batman and Robin and the early Bronze Age Booster Gold collections. The popularity of the collected editions has found the right people, with DC Studios boss James Gunn reassuring fans that he has been in touch with DC Comics’ Jim Lee regarding further printing.
Coincidentally, King is also one of the writers in DC Studios’ writers’ room, helping to construct the overarching narrative that each of the movies, shows, and video games will lead to. Along with King in the de facto writers’ room for the DCU, Jeremy Slater (Moon Knight), Christina Hodson (The flash), Christian Hendrik (Guardians) and Drew Goddard (Daredevil). While it’s yet to be revealed if any of the writers are actually writing individual projects within the DCU, Gunn has confirmed they’re behind the first chapter’s interconnected story. Not only that, but the DCU writers have already planned two chapters of stories.
“We already know,” Gunn told reporters Monday where the story is going. “The eight to ten year plan is two chapters and our basic story that we tell there comes to an end, but it’s not the end of the universe. Will Peter and I still be here after that time?”
