Supergirl: Age of Atlantis, by Jo Whittemore, follows Kara as she investigates how regular National City citizens begin developing superpowers. She must figure out if all these new abilities are connected to the humanoid sea creature the DEO recently captured.

“We’re big fans of The Flash and Supergirl TV shows at ABRAMS,” Andrew Smith, senior vice president and publisher ABRAMS children’s books, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be working with Warner Bros., the shows’ production teams, and super-fan authors Barry Lyga and Jo Whittemore to introduce two epic new series featuring original adventures not seen on TV for the DC Super Heroes…These new stories expand upon the hit television shows in exciting new ways, and we can’t wait for fans and new readers to experience them!”

The Flash: Hocus Pocus is available Oct. 3 and Supergirl: Age of Atlantis will be released Nov. 7.

These titles are joined by other DC books Lois Lane: Triple Threat, available in the spring and Wonder Woman: Warbringer out this summer.

Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 pm and The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 pm on The CW.
