Sterling Gates is a friend of mine. He graduated at OU then went out to LA to make his mark in the film world. Instead, he ended up associated with Geoff Johns, one of DC Comics' best writers. A while after that, Sterling took over the scripting chores of Supergirl and is taking her through great trials and adventures.
Sterling's first graphic novel (without other writers) is now on sale. Do yourself a favor and pick it up. Lots of libraries are carrying graphic novels now, so you'll probably find it there soon. The story is a blast and Sterling's take on the character is fresh and invigorating. Jamal Igle is a dream as an artist -- every panel is awesome.
For my review, go here.
