Supergirl #18 is written by Jody Houser and Steve Orlando, with interior art and cover A by Daniel Henriques and Robson Rocha, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau created the variant cover, Michael Atiyeh worked on the colors for the interior and Cover A, and Steve Wand handled letters.
“Artgerm” Lau’s background in graphic design and advertising is a significant influence in the Supergirl variant this week. The over-the-top 70s vibe he gives Supergirl is stunning, combined with the textured logo makes this a must-have print. DC Comics needs to produce this for the 2018 convention season.
Houser has made a name for herself with her work on Mother Panic for DC Comics, Faith for Valiant, and the adaptation of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for Marvel Comics. Orlando has been working on Supergirl since 2016, from the launch of Rebirth.
