Farewell by MahmudAsrar

Dear friends,

As apparent from my absence in the last few issues of Supergirl I am no longer the series artist on the book. I will no longer be drawing the book and #20 was my final issue. I will however remain the cover artist on the book for just a few more issues.

What kept me from drawing the book initially was some health issues after which I had to rest for a bit. In the meantime I was offered some other projects which I took into consideration. Offers that ultimately had me make some important decisions. Unfortunately one of these decisions was to resign from art duties on Supergirl. Believe me, It was not an easy decision but one I had to make for the sake of several things in my career and life.

Over the past couple of years I've had an amazing time defining Supergirl for the New 52 with my collaborators in DC Entertainment. It was an honour to be a part of this bold new direction for DC. I was probably among the lucky few who had a wonderful team of collaborators throughout the whole thing, some of whom I've come to call good friends. My creative partners Mike Johnson, Michael Green, Michael Alan Nelson, Dave McCaig, Rob Leigh and some awesome others - My editors Wil Moss, Matt Idelson, Eddie Berganza and Rickey Purdin - The whole crew at DC Entertainment who've made everything work smoothly and was helpful throughout. I thank each and everyone sincerely.

Last but certainly not least, I'd like to thank you all so much for sharing your appreciation towards my art on this book. Can't tell you how much it means when I hear somebody say they've been buying the book just because I was drawing it. You guys are awesome.

This was definitely one of the highlights of my career and I'll look back fondly.

Now other things await me. Exciting new things that you'll find out about soon enough. See you in the funny books. Here's a sneak peek on what's next:

Thanks for your work. I like your style alot. Supergirl had one of the best drawings in new 52. I said had because your replacement done poor job with her. Could you please come back? Or at the very least hit the guy with some heavy book and tell him to atleast try to copy you? Please...

Nooo ! Why did you leave us? I am so disappointed with new art style. The guy doesn't know how to draw her. He has done good job with CyborgS but he screwed up Supergirl so much! Can you hit him in the head so that he would atleast try and copy you? Please....

I had to move on.

Don't have a say in the creative direction of the book. I'm sure it will be in good hands though.

I picked up Supergirl primarily for the artwork. Your illustrations are unique, dynamic, and inspiring. I am sorely going to miss your stamp on this series.
