Supergirl and the Legion of Super Heroes #20 is a terribly average issue. Average art and a slow story with some cheesy dialogue at times makes for a read that is rather ordinary. I don' think that there is much hope of this title turning the corner until Waid assumes full control of this title and is able to focus more of his attention on this storyline. It is obvious that 52 has dominated his time and attention. And it clearly shows in the quality of writing that we have gotten on this title since the One Year Later storyline began. Read Full Review
Whenever I flip through Supergirl at the Phantom of the Attic, the hack-writing and abysmal artwork nauseates me. Waid on the other hand seems to actually like Supergirl and knows how to write for her. He no longer has any idea how to write for the Legion. He used to be able to combine forces with Stern and Peyer quite ably, but his enthusiasm for the Legion seems to have vanished. Barry Kitson knows how to illustrate Supergirl. He continually gives her grace and poise even when his pencils fall under the too heavy inks of Adam DeKraker. I propose then that DC cancels Legion of Super-Heroes and transplants Mark Waid and Barry Kitson to Supergirl. As for the former Supergirl team, well, they can work on incest-based porn. They seem to have the knack. Read Full Review
