Shes done with people pushing her around, taking advantage of her and betraying her. Shes done feeling helpless, lost and discarded. Shes done with hope, faith and acceptance. Now, all thats left is rage. And shell burn the universe down before she lets another person tell her who she should be. Supergirls journey as a Red Lantern continues here in Red Daughter of Krypton.

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Mar 22, 2014

    This comic does explain a few things if you just read the Green Lantern/Red Lanterns #28 flip book. I highly suggest buying this issue if you were interested by that issue along with the previous issue of Supergirl. It helps fill in the gaps for fans of the Red Lanterns series and makes you want to see more of Red Lantern Supergirl. Which we will see by next week in Red Lanterns #29. So stay tuned for next week for more Supergirl and the Red Lantern Corps. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 21, 2014

    But the big win were the glimpses into the recent past of Supergirl, cleaning the apartment and laughing with her friend. We simply haven't seen that sort of characterization with Supergirl in the New 52. Tony Bedard has said he wants to rehabilitate Supergirl's character, make her likable and heroic. These scenes were a good way to start the softening of the gruff angsty Supergirl. And a thanks and goodbye to Yildiray Cinar. Cinar's work was exemplary during his brief stay on the book.

    We're backtracking a little with this issue, since it takes place before recent events in Green Lantern and Red Lanterns, but it's a solid issue. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Mar 21, 2014

    While there are no huge surprises, this issue provides a nice bridge to show how Kara went from Earth to blindly flying with vast rage throughout space. It also provides a great reminder of the relationships Kara has at stake back on Earth along with how enjoyable they are to watch play out. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Bryan Huth Mar 24, 2014

    In the end,Supergirl #29 offers up a good amount of character focus and development all set against the violence and destruction that comes with a Red Lantern ring. This book leaves you wondering just how long DC plans to keep Kara as a Red Lantern. The thought of a Kryptonian having any type of power ring is one that could easily mean death for any of that person's opponents, and being that Kara is the most vulnerable of the three Kryptonian heroes, giving her a Red Lantern ring not only gives her a whole new dynamic, but could also mean World War 3. The answer to how long our young Kryptonian could hold the red power of rage could be seen in next week'sRed Lanterns #29. If chosen to have Kara side with the corps, DC could potentially turn this into the next Justice League event following Forever Evil and all of the other preset plans.Stay tuned to We The Nerdy for more DC news and reviews.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 19, 2014

    This feels like it should be a bigger issue than it is.  I don't know if the decision to put out the Green Lantern/Red Lantern flip book before this, stole it's hype, or if I'm just waiting for something to happen.  Whether it's a hype problem or not, I'm still going to blame GL/RL flip book.  We're all waiting for shit to get real, and we're stuck backtracking.  Maybe it's just me.  But it was really cool seeing a fight between a Red Lantern Kara and Silver Banshee.  Banshee hasn't gotten much play in the New 52, and I dig the re-imaging, and seeing what the character has to offer us in the future.  So for those out there trying to connect with the Red Daughter of Krypton, maybe this isn't the issue to tie you to it.  But it's still enjoyable.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Mar 22, 2014

    Bedard quickly establishes what's interesting about Siobhan in a way that I wish he'd manage with Kara and Yildiray Cinar, perhaps spurred to greatness by his departure from this book, gives us a beautiful fight. The first act of this Red Lantern story has dragged on a little long but the high stakes, fierce compositions, and strong character work make this Bedard and Cinar's strongest issue to date.

    Infinite Comix - Jay Mattson Mar 24, 2014

    Supergirl #29 is a good issue because Siobhan is a fun character. Silver Banshee is a great part of the Supergirl narrative, and having a new issue focused on the Siobhan trying to control the demonic forces inside her is always fun to read. While the art isn't anything spectacular, it doesn't detract from the story. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Zach Wilkerson Mar 21, 2014

    The issue itself ends on a bit of an odd note, steering the reader towards last month's "Green Lantern/Red Lanterns" flipbook to continue the story. Over the course of the issue, Bedard breaks away from the Red Lantern Supergirl story to develop a number of subplots involving Dr. Veritas, Lobo, and a demonic lizard-like army. It will be interesting to see how Bedard wrangles all of these disparate plot threads. Each one is interesting in its own right, but they fail to form a cohesive story. Overall, "Supergirl" #29 isn't the salvation the series needs at the moment, but it is an unexpected move that may end up paying off for the girl of steel. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Hank Johnson Mar 23, 2014

    The bottom line is this issue made me feel like an addict who finally realized they reached rock bottom. I have been buying Supergirl issues chasing after the character that Spencer, et al. introduced to me pre-Flashpoint. Only now, looking at my empty wallet, do I realize that Kara Zor-El has been gone for almost two and half years, and she is not coming back (at least not any time soon). While Bedard and Cinar are obviously skilled craftsmen, their work on this issue was far below their best. Supergirl #29 felt to me like good fan fiction gone wrong instead of a well thought out crossover event. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 27, 2014

    Despite once again floating the idea that no Red Lantern can ever remove their ring and survive (something Guy Gardner has already accomplished) we know Kara's days as a Red Lantern are numbered, and unless someone is going to do full issue of a Kara and Dex-Starr team-up I'll probably wait until this journey is over before picking up another Supergirl comic. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review
