Supergirl is dead. Long live Supergirl! Or so it seems as the strange connection between the Karas has Power Girl becoming Supergirl again.

    A comic with both Supergirl and Power Girl may be a wish come true for some. Michael Alan Nelson must have had a blast writing this because you definitely feel that ooze out out of the pages. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun reading a Supergirl issue. If this establishes a new relationship between the two, I'm completely on board. If you're looking for a great and fun read, be sure to check this out. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall May 16, 2013

    Honestly, I think this book could outdo the other Superman family titles with Nelson's strong characterization and plotting. Wouldn't it be great to have Supergirl be the lead "super" title at DC for a change? I'd love that! I highly recommend you jump on now (if you don't buy this comic already) so you'll enjoy the book when the high-octane action and personal interaction hits! Read Full Review

    If the rest of Nelson's run has this feeling, I will be happy. Add to that the continued stellar art by Mahmud Asrar and I was one happy Supergirl fan. Read Full Review

    Supergirl #20 is a sleeper hit. I'm surprised Michael Alan Nelson's first issue didn't get more coverage from DC, because this ain't bad at all. Read Full Review

    Focusing on personality rather than powers, Michael Alan Nelson takes Supergirl to new heights, making this comic easily the most improved DC book of the week. While there are occasional moments that drag with a little too much dialogue, it's no mean feat to synthesize an erratic 19-issue run and create a coherent " even sympathetic " character as a result, and combine that with introducing a fun new villain, and you have proof positive that it's never too late to make a good impression.

    Comic Booked - Kelly Cassidy May 16, 2013

    This is the issue of Supergirl where we know things will start to build with more character development. These first 2 years of the New 52, we saw new takes on characters and we needed to get to know who they were, never mind letting the creators figure it out. Within the last month and probably into the next few, we will see a number of "coming of age" stories and setting a new direction for various characters. We've now seen this start here with Supergirl and I'm glad to say I'm sticking around to see where things are headed. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 20, 2013

    Writer Michael Allen Johnson does a great job in showcasing both similarities and differences between the Karas of different Earths while providing a thrilling and amusing issue full of stark humor and life and death stakes that costs Supergirl something precious but introduces someone even more valuable into her life. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze May 19, 2013

    Overall it was a nice end to their meeting. Nothing too special, but it was entertaining nonetheless just because having both Kara's in the same story was handled very well. Even set things in motion for a story to come either next or in the future since eventhough they escaped Sanctuary, it seems to have now made itself mobile to finish the job. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl May 15, 2013

    Also somewhat out of control was the the double page spread of memories. There's nothing to guide your eye through the images, and the lettering defies the convention of how a double page spread reads. This book has a few rough spots with the visuals, but overall it's so entertaining that it succeeds despite them. Read Full Review
