    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj May 23, 2014

    Okay, I am gushing about this issue a bit too much. But the truth is this felt like a more classic take on Supergirl. Take off her Red Lantern togs and put her in a classic S-Shield and this would have been perfect. Tony Bedard, so far, has been keeping to his word and making this arc a redemption story. And, while a long time coming ... and sad that it had to come ... I have to say I am eating it up with a spoon. Add to that Lupacchino's beautiful clean art and Cinar's more ethereal take on memories and you have a winning issue. Hurrah! Read Full Review

    I want Supergirl to wear the red ring forever! I love this turn in her character, and for however long this lasts, I'll be a fan following her. Read Full Review

    All in all this was a fun read. The story was well written and the art was great to look at. If you bought the last issue to Red Lanterns I guarantee you need to buy this issue to get the full story on how Red Lanterns deal with a character who was as different from the other Red Lanterns like Rankor. I can't wait to see what happens next in Red Lanterns #31 to see how the other Red Lanterns deal with the Judge. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Jeremy Eloi May 22, 2014

    Supergirl #31 is an issue that builds up the suspense for what is to come and also adds intrigue to those elements that are not part of the main story. However, the issue ends in a way that helps bring the suspense forward and this may lead to feelings of an incomplete story. This is a great issue and really brings out the humanity of the members of the Red Lantern Corps, including Kara. Read Full Review

    "Red Daughter of Krypton" is a solid crossover so far but we need to see the marquee matchups soon or it will start to drag. Read Full Review

    Maybe my joke about management earlier is well founded, almost all of the books I've reviewed this month certainly feel like it. Like somewhere an invisible editor, titanic in size, was telling the creative team a series of necessary story bits each issue had to hit in order to make publication. Let's make sure there are no less than three potential villains showcased – okay yeah, Guy Gardner needs to do something important to. While you're at it, make Supergirl sexy in at least one panel if you can. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 23, 2014

    This just really seems like a footnote to what's happening in Red Lanterns, and does very little to continue the story.  Pretty much it's only a conversation, and I was hoping for a bit more story.  So unless you need to read or collect everything in the Red Daughter of Krypton story arc, I don't recommend getting this issue.  While I like Kara's adventure as a Red Lantern, I'll be happier when she becomes plain old Supergirl again so she has more to do in her own title.

    In short, this is a nice sampler of what Tony Bedard will be bringing to Supergirl in the coming months, but as a single issue and especially as part of "Red Daughter of Krypton", it's just not pulling its weight. Read Full Review
