    I've not picked up a New 52 Supergirl before, and it seems I've been missing out. So have you, if you haven't been following the exploits of the newest Red Lantern in that group's book. This is worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Apr 18, 2014

    I know, this is a whole arc. I shouldn't expect things to be the way I want ... let alone in a couple of months. But I was hoping that the trajectory we saw in the earlier issues ... the trek back to a S-shield Supergirl fighting villains on Earth ... was maintained. Still, there is progress here. And I guess I should be happy about that. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Ian Yoxon Apr 19, 2014

    Personally this a good time to start reading Supergirl if you haven't yet as the comic pretty much tells readers what's going on in both this series and Red Lanterns. This issue has plenty of action and creates a lot of potential for the story with some of these new villains. Readers will find themselves also anticipating the battle between Guy Gardner and Atrocitus which we will see in next weeks issue of Red Lanterns. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Apr 18, 2014

    Controversial as it was, Kara's induction into the Red Lantern Corps leaves this title stronger than ever. The slowly improving writing makes great strides and the art is just lovely. Bedard may be hampered by the demands of the crossover, but here's hoping that Supergirl is just warming up. Strong character work from the entire team makes this a particularly enjoyable, if unessential, read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 17, 2014

    This issue takes on a more cartoony feel with Emanuela Lupacchino on penciling duties, and while it comes off strange because of what we're used to, I really dug it, and it seemed to work well with the Red Lanterns.  The story on the other hand isn't much to get you excited over, we're all waiting for Atrocitus to return, and instead we get a big back story about how Kara feels on the issue of planets dying, and a new alien threat that seems to want to use Supergirl as a weapon across the universe.  I don't know, it just feels like filler as we wait for the main event.

    There's no doubt this book will bounce back next month in part two of the battle with Atrocitus, but this one doesn't make the case for being essential reading. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Todd Frazier Apr 18, 2014

    With a strong cast of supporting characters, a good addition to the Red Lanterns mythos, Bedard is very successful in incorporating his story arc with Charles Soules' work in Red Lanterns. Supergirl may have found a home and a family to help her with teenage angst and rage. After all shes been through since the beginning of the New 52, she definitely deserves it. Read Full Review

    I love watching Kara as a Red. It's an interesting idea. This issue did drift, though. I'm not sold on Blaze. Can't wait for Atrocitus, though!
