    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Feb 23, 2016

    The issue's pencils by Bengal remain top notch. From the transformation panels to the contemplative Kara to the action sequences with the DEO squad, the art just leaps off the page. Add to that the brilliant name drop of Byrnian Caren Falq-Nerr, the inclusion of Inertron, and Agent Igle, and you have a pretty stuffed episode. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori Feb 22, 2016

    That said, Adventures of Supergirl Chapter 3 once again delivers a fun story with a lot more of what makes Supergirl different from all the other young women super-heroes. Sterling Gates and Bengal continue to make the wait for an ongoing Supergirl comic seem inconsequential. As far as Im concerned, DC should consider this a prelude and bring on this team full time for Rebirth in the fall. You cant do better. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 8, 2016

    This book continues to be the place to be for Supergirl fans...comic and television.  Sterling Gates shows that Kara has an open mind and invites us to all climb inside and it's a fantastic journey to say the least.  Emanuela Luppacchino's art makes it a fantastic looking journey, but it's not just for show.  Gates continues to plant seeds of doubt about the D.E.O.'s true methods and intentions and that's what seems to be pushing the overall story forward.  I suggest everyone get onboard and enjoy the ride, but hurry because I'm not saving you a seat.  I'm a jerk like that!

    For once somebody in comics gives time to its more secondary villain. And Gates hits a homer. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 23, 2016

    The Adventures of Supergirl is fitting in smoothly as a guilty pleasure of sorts because it's able to work off of a lot of what's established in the show without having to do a ton of heavy lifting. We know the Fort Rozz side and this gives us a bit of a look at it before it went to hell. I like Caren and Moyer's story even if it has a few obvious plot holes to it and that it's so info heavy. But once again, Bengal is able to just drive it home in an engaging way with some great visuals and layouts that has such a dynamic design to it that the book just feels full of energy. This is a great little bi-weekly diversion of fun and lightness in the right tone of the show, something that could be difficult to capture well. I'm curious to see where the rest of the run will go and am definitely on board for the right. Read Full Review

    The Kliq Nation - Timdogg Feb 22, 2016

    The first arc in Adventures of Supergirl comes to a conclusion. What I enjoyed was the parallels between Supergirl and Rampage. Bengal brought vibrant energy to his artwork that set the hopeful tone for Supergirl. Sterling Gates gives Supergirl humanity, which makes the reader pull for her. I'm ready to see what the next story arc involves. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Feb 22, 2016

    I got the feeling that the Rampage story has been tied up – at least for now – and a new threat will be found in Chapter 4. Hopefully we get to see more villains that the TV series didn't get around to using. Be sure to check back in two weeks. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 22, 2016

    Each chapter is good, but the story as a whole is stronger when read together. That's where the big picture becomes apparent and a simple story of capturing an alien becomes so much more. Read Full Review

    A good superhero comic that's got some surprises in store for you. It may not progress the character or subplots, but it's a good time! Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Byron Hendricks Feb 26, 2016

    This weeks ten pages wraps up the battle between Supergirl and Rampage. This issue explores the characters a little bit more by showing us more of Supergirls thoughts and by showing us the motive behind Rampage and her actions. The ending does feel somewhat rushed. However, being limited to ten pages, this is rather inevitable. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Feb 22, 2016

    The firstAdventures of Supergirlarc ends sort of flat, but looks really good doing it. We learn the secret origin of Rampage, and it is pretty unexpected. There's also some sweet interaction between the Danvers sisters, and in this chapter we really see what kind of person Kara is. I would have liked a more definitive ending, is all, especially for the opening arc for a series. Perhaps this will read better if it is ever stitched into a printed issue. Read Full Review
