The next title from Sci Fi/Virgin Comics, the nearly year-old imprint from the Sci Fi Channel and Virgin Comics, will be Superbia, described as “the Justice League meets Wisteria Lane.”
Yes, that’s a Desperate Housewives reference.
The comic, written by Lisa Klink and Jordan Gorfinkle, centers on Woodshire Village, a planned community for superheroes and their families. It’s expected to be released this summer, with a television pilot in development.
“When the newest residents of Woodshire Village, a pair of young newlyweds, moved to the quaint cul-de-sac, they expected life to be strange,” the official description reads. “But ‘strange’ doesn’t quite cover it. A residential community for superheroes, Woodshire Village boasts affordable housing and easy commutes to all major crime scenes. And when the heroes are away, the spouses play.”
It reminds me of Meadowlands, for some reason.
