- Author Bio
There’s a new student at Super Hero High in DC Super Hero Girls: Spaced Out, and she’s about to take some of her new friends on an out-of-this-world mission!
Earth’s new Green Lantern, Jessica Cruz, learns that she must report to Oa and introduce herself to the Green Lantern Corps—as if learning new powers and being the new girl at Super Hero High weren’t enough!
Luckily, Supergirl, Star Sapphire, and Big Barda are happy to accompany Jessica on her outer-space journey. But when they arrive on Oa, instead of the Green Lantern Corps they find Kryptonians they thought were long gone—General Zod, Faora, and Non. While the spacefaring girls take on this intergalactic mystery, the earthbound students are faced with their own challenge—pet-sitting Krypto!
