virgincomics.jpgThe Sci Fi Channel and Virgin Comics teamed up previously for the Stranded series, and yesterday, the two announced their next joint venture Superbia.

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. 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.

One would expect Woodshire Village to be the safest community imaginable however it’s not without its share of secrets, scandal, mystery and murder. With the superheroes off saving the world – their “day job” – it’s up to their partners at home to solve the crimes occurring in their own backyards and preserve the safety of their protected enclave.

Oh boy, it sounds like the superhero version of Desperate Housewives. Not that that is a bad thing, DH is still one of the hot shows on ABC, and heck, I’d probably actually watch a television series with that premise.

Superbia, the comic book, will be written by Lisa Klink and Jordan Gorfinkle, and will be available this summer.
