September means a lot of things: Labor Day, back to school, the start of football season. But this year it also means something else; it signals the beginning of “40 Days of Supergirl,” a Multiversity event that celebrates the Girl of Steel across all platforms. We will be featuring all sorts of amazing content from now until the debut episode of Supergirl season 2 on October 10th. Join in the fun on social media by using the #40DaysofSupergirl hashtag.
The centerpiece of the event is our fourth art month, after our amazing Abe Sapien, Hellboy, and Guardians of the Galaxy themed projects. We have amazing artists – both established and up and coming – who have contributed original pieces of art featuring Supergirl, many of which will be going up for auction, with the proceeds to benefit Room to Read, a wonderful literacy charity that helps people all over the world. Enjoy the month, bid on some art, and help make some lives even better the best way we can think of: through comics!

David’s piece will be up for auction later this fall – keep checking back on Multiversity for details!
