    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Mar 8, 2016

    I can't help but see some similarities between this opening chapter and last week's episode. I also saw much of the ideas of Master Jailer in Rampage chapter discussing sentence lengths. I don't know if this synergy was done on purpose but it does resonate nicely. I also wonder if Winn's knowledge of alien codes and viruses in Indigo will be born here. I thought this was another entertaining chapter in the Adventures of Supergirl. Between the learning Supergirl, the discussion with James, the stylized art and a certain Coluan, this was a great opening chapter. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 8, 2016

    The very firstpanel of this comic lets us know that this is a cumulative story with its owncontinuity, which isn't always true of DC's digital comics. So there is apayoff to stick with it if you're enjoying it enough to spend two bucks amonth. This chapter pits Kara against alien computer nerdery, which is a goodmatch-up because her nerdliness is very strong when she puts on a sweater set. Andshe's an alien, to boot. Jonboy Meyers and John Rauch take over art duties forthis chapter and do an absolutely bang-up job with it. If you can't enjoy thiscomic, then you suck. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 8, 2016

    Adventures of Supergirl sets us up on a fun new arc here that ties into characters that I enjoy and like to see how they can be re-interpreted. I'd certainly like to see how they could work this into the actual TV storyline as well since VRIL is a character that I just adore. Gates continues to find the right balance here in going for familiar comic concepts while sticking to the style and tone of the show as well as some of the name dropping and the like. Meyers' design in this issue is solid as well and it fits with what's being sought here, something fun and upbeat with an excitement and dynamic feeling about it that also just has the right color tones, with Rauch nails perfectly. It's an easily accessible book in the classic sense but delivers for longtime character fans as well. Read Full Review

    Sterling Gates continues giving Supergirl fans a great book to check out and while this issue was more setup than the others, we get to see Facet and what she has to say has me very intrigued going forward.  The art and story were both good and if you are already reading the series, you'll want to keep checking it out.

    It will be interesting to see where Sterling Gates takes the series next as he provided a cliffhanger worthy of prime time. Carmen Carnero is the latest in the line of guest artists to contribute and I was pretty impressed by her efforts. Her style is a bit more realistic and less exaggerated than what we've seen up to this point, but given the mid-season finale vibe that I spoke of earlier, perhaps it's just what was needed.

    The issue is overall enjoyable. I quite like Gates' dialogue and I enjoy what he does with the theme of secrecy in superhero material for Kara's character. The art is also great. The issue is unfortunately weighed down by some exposition and uninteresting action but I still recommend checking this issue out. It is a fun read. Read Full Review
