According to Bleeding Cool, DC Comics is lining the scribe up as a successor to James Peaty on the title.
Wood is renowned for his creator-owned ventures DMZ and Northlanders, both published by Vertigo. He has also served as a designer for video game studio Rockstar Games, working on high profile franchises such as Grand Theft Auto, Max Payne and Manhunt.
Supergirl has undergone multiple creative team changes since the departure of regular contributors Sterling Gates and Jamal Ingle. Nick Spencer took the reins on the title last December, only to depart after one issue.
Supergirl was created by writer Otto Binder and artist Al Plastino in 1959. She made her first appearance in Action Comics #252.
It was previously reported that Kelly Sue DeConnick and ChrisCross will collaborate on a three-issue arc beginning in Supergirl #65 in June.
