Supergirl Goes Brunette in Previews for Supergirl: Rebirth and Supergirl #1

Supergirl Rebirth Preview header

DC Comics has released unlettered previews for the upcoming comics Supergirl: Rebirth #1 and Supergirl #1, which release on Aug 17 and Sep 7.

Kara’s new look is beautifully adapted from the TV series, but there’s a surprising twist: she will be going brunette in her new Kara Danvers identity. Will it be a wig or a modern update on the hair color-changing comb introduced in 1983’s Supergirl 17? (available on Comixology) The series is definitely tapping into the Rebirth pre-Crisis nostalgia.

Check out the previews below.

Supergirl: Rebirth #1 (2016)

Supergirl turns to the shadowy organization known as the D.E.O. (Department of Extranormal Operations) to restore her lost powers once and for all!

All the epic action of the brand new Supergirl series starts here!
